    hand job, haha

    Yeah, that's a little creepy and it sure does look like the ump was baiting him.

    That said, Bumgarner has been a prima donna his whole professional (at least) life. Two pitches didn't go his way - both close, but neither one a strike. And he's doing his scowl and hand gesturing and running of the mouth thing. I don't want to see that, maybe the ump didn't either. No, baiting is not good. But Bumgarner put himself in that situation, and he gets no sympathy from me. Hit the showers, and maybe next time you check yourself.

    Also, purely from a devil's advocate perspective, maybe it wasn't baiting by the ump. Maybe the ump said something like "look at me," and was going to try to give some advice to cool him down, like, "it's a long game, stay calm." And then it looks like Bumgarner was resisting looking at him, so the ump just waited, and did the finger thing to stall until Bumgarner had to look up. Then who knows what the pitcher said at that point, but it must've been too far over the line to allow him to stay in the game.

    I don't know how feasible that explanation is, but maybe?

    Not an encouraging update on Treinen from the Dodger website.
    RHP Blake Treinen (right shoulder inflammation)
    Expected return:TBD
    Treinen, who has been out since April 14, is still not recovering from injury, and the right-hander is scheduled to visit a doctor and undergo tests on May 9. Given the delicate nature of a shoulder injury, the Dodgers are concerned that it could be a long-term issue for Treinen but should have a better idea of his timetable following the exams. – Juan Toribio (Last updated: May 7)

    Crazy to think: Buehler's solid performance yesterday lowered his ERA to 1.96 on the year... which is only good enough for fourth best among Dodger starters.

    Lol, if he's available and the Dodgers get him, baseball twitter gonna have a melt down. He'd still cost the largest prospect package in baseball history.

    And Miller would definitely have to headline the package. Would sting but Soto is more than worth it

    So I realize this makes me the old white honky bastard for pissing all over this rookie in his joyous celebration of his first homer...



    ... but if he had done anything like this in the days of Gibson, Drysdale, Carlton, or Jenkins ... or Gossage, Lyle, Marshall, or Fingers ....

    This kid would get the next pitch in his ear for certain. And the next eleven, too. And Gibson would have kicked his ass at home plate.

    Plus, this was not a game winner. It's a May dinger by a five game under .500 shitty team in a blowout contest.

    This old man rant brought to you by a fat, gray cisgender neo-fascist who voted for Trump. Twice.

    Off to my Klan meeting....

    No way. This is somehow 100% due to his misuse by Dave Roberts from last post-season.

    Maybe someone can tell me why Caleb Ferguson was sent down again?
    I know I'm prejudiced for the kid, but he's a valuable asset, imo.
    I just don't get that on a staff that's at best, a patchwork quilt...

    I think age is most likely the culprit here, he's not a kid anymore...and I get what he said when he shut down with us can be interpreted as whining about Davey's use of him...but in that particular case, I think he was 100% correct.
    Granted, it may have been the start of the chronological shut down, but he was spectacularly misused.
    There's not too many Satchel Paige 's throughout bb history...and Max is also not exactly a knuckleballer.
