Discussion in 'Los Angeles DODGERS' started by irish, Sep 29, 2019.
That was me trying to play team sports before I was 12.
think i would actually prefer playing the brewers
the nats bullpen is terrible
but you're going to have to face one of stras/max/corbin to start every game
that's a tall order
Oh and probably me trying to play sports past 40 as well.
Im thinking its time for a comeback though.
A movember type of thing.
Dodgers bats need some love from Jobu this time.
I will do my part by getting fit to inspire Kenley, stay away from dairy and snack bar favorites in solidarity with Corey for making the sacrifice (except during Dodgers games) and shave the beard weekly and keep the hair high and tight in honor of classic Dodgers WS legends.
Hopefully it please Jobu to strengthen the bat of Cody again to its previous power and grace like it was blessed before.
I will do it all October and as long as the team is still playing and Jobu's avatar on earth Joc Pederson is starting vs RHP.
It’s hard to see the Nats losing with Scherzer at home.
Granted, only 1 quality start in his last 8 outings... but 14 straight QS’s before that. Rooting for the Brewers, maybe they get the bad Max.
max has honestly been pretty damn bad since mid July. Lots of 4-5 inning starts with multiple runs.
i really doubt we’re gonna see a great, 6-8 inning Scherzer performance and luckily for us, I predict the game turns into both teams using lots of their best pitchers
Holy shit, the Nats just released their roster for tonight's game 9 pitchers on the roster including 4 starters. They are preparing for the Brewers to use multiple relievers throughout the game. This is kinda fun.
Stras and Max are not the guys I am crazy worried about, it 's Corbin. He absolutely owns us to a count of 2 ER's in his last 5 starts against(since the start of last season).
Yeah, Corbin has been solid versus LA. yeah. But he can also eat as much shit as any other pitcher though, on any given day. How many times did we see baseball's best arm, Clayton Kershaw, melt down in big games versus lesser opponents? On the other side of that, teams like the Cards and Mets and Stros and Cubs all had to wonder, "this guy is amazing - he's gonna be tough" only to beat CK all over the diamond like a bitch. Patrick Corbin is supposed to make me shit myself now? Corbin, a pitcher that no one will remember as anything other than a bigger version of Doug Rau on the hill. Corbin isn't shit, really. LA ought to pound him like two-dollar whore. They don't though, at least not yet, so if he cuts their throat, they never deserved the shot anyway.
I truly don't GAF about any opponents anymore. If this team cannot beat another team in a short series after all they've done and all they've won, fuck 'em. I refuse to root for a lesser team to increase my potential joy at seeing my team fail to close the deal. Beat the best, I say.
The Dodgers should have won it it in 2017, but they lost it. No amount of Houston chest-thumping changes that LA lost it, and Houston benefited. The End. And LA should have AT LEAST gotten it back to Boston for a game 6 last year, if not won that as well. They SHOULD have beaten the Cards and the Mets respectively in 2014 and 2015, and they DAMN sure ought have beaten the Cubs in '16. For God's Sake, seven divisional titles and no rings is tantamount to the biggest underachievement in MLB history. At least the Braves won in 1996, and the Royals, who strung together a series of AL West titles in the 70s and 80s, beat the Cards in '85.
If this team can't grow some nuts and do this against the 1927 Yankees in the form of 2019's whoever-the-fuck-they-play, they can just suck it.
But I'm rooting for Milwaukee and for every good player to get injured
corbin will probably pitch a max of one inning today. Pitched 90+ on Saturday. If Nats win, he’s game 1 starter
I’m hoping they use Max AND Stras today.
I’m predicting a brewers win though. Nats are chokers
I have not watched the Nats a lot, but someone on MLB radio was saying that the Nats offense is abysmal against off speed pitching and really only eat up FB heavy guys. If they fall behind early, they could be in a lot of trouble with that Brewers pen. I'm interested to see what the Brewers look like tonight as they may also be minus Cain as well now. Fully expect Yasmani Grandal to become superman.
Dodgers need to step up and finish it for a change. It starts with Roberts - he needs to lead them, whether by decision making, motivating, or whatever. I always think of those three Gnats championships as involving a boatload of luck in at least two of them, but really what they had and the Dodgers don't was Boch. I always suspected this, and last night I looked it up and confirmed: Take the Gnats regular season run differential from 2010, 2012, and 2014, add the three numbers together, and it is significantly less than the Dodgers run differential from just this year. Point is, those teams were weaker, but they stepped up on the biggest stage, because they had the right leadership. I want to see the Dodgers stop uncorking champagne every time they win a division or a divisional series, and instead keep that game face on all the way through. Roberts, it's time to stop being everybody's friend and instead ride some asses to get the most out of your players.

Victor Robles CF
Max Scherzer RHP
Eaton made it through a season?
the regular season is cause of the players and the postseason is cause of the manager? I get it but also, idk, our dudes should stop choking too. IMO the regular season is more important for a good manager cause there’s so much more to deal with and playoffs their decisions are obviously huge and important but nothing matters if the players perform. Seen plenty of bad managers make bad decisions and the players pull through. But we’ll see
Alex Cora and Joe Maddon both suck. But their players came through
Roberts does shitty things, but Kenley and Clayton choked and the entire team hit like .190 in the WS.
Players gotta step up
Yup! And now he has accumulated enough WAR in 3 seasons with the Nats get to the halfway mark of what he did in his last season with the White Sox!
Damn it, he's so gritty
