    Fine then I'll use your choice of words. Your concern is "irrelevant" until the Dodgers face those teams and actually lose to them, but right now? They are 6-1 with the 1 being a 1 run game in an extra innings rule bunt/sac fly loss. You are literally complaining about them beating the teams on their schedule.

    As far as Freeman? Those defensive numbers aren't as good as you think they are. They aren't high caliber (1 career gold glove, -8 career dWAR, zero years grading positive defensively).

    Chief, you make fine points
    But you needlessly insult your own friends on here for some reason.

    Yeah, I like everyone here (obviously homo) except for A2N because he's a racist prick from the old ESPN/Huzzah boards.

    So I'm saying...

    Disagree? Well y'all can SUCK IT!

    (Again, homo)

    Dude basically said what I said was irrelevant then brought up something from another thread to rag on me more and I'm the one insulting? There are things that trigger me and that I word is near the top.

    This is what a DSP fight looks like ...




    Meanwhile, I wish this LA offense had the tenacity of the otter.

    Didn't write that what you wrote was irrelevant. Everyone has a right to have their own opinion on this bipolar team..
    It's a baseball message board for crissakes.
    I feel that what the teams we beat ( or have beaten) do with other teams is irrelevant and doesn't change those facts that we' ve played lower tier teams, and have the record we do because of that fact. To me, apples and oranges.That's all.
    I don't tell people they're irrelevant.
    In the scheme of things, imo, nothing was changed by your stats. For me. You got a " like", so good for you.
    Did it ever cross your mind that your so- called trigger is a hair trigger ?
    Y'know, the "I" word.
    So, as a result, you insult the other person's intelligence ?
    Do you put it in the same category as the N word ?
    Juuuust a bit outside...

    felt bad for that turtle damn
    i knew otters ate fish but had no idea they'd tear up a large turtle like that
    must've been one hungry otter
    also thought otters worked together w other otters but this guy seems a solo act

    There's a tribe that named otters 'river wolves' in their language.

    Watched a nature doc recently - one cameramen said that he's filmed 10K hours of animals in the wild. Of that, he said it involved 9900 hours of nothing happening, an hour of exciting stuff that made the fina cut.... and 99 hours of savage shit that would scare parents and kids to death. He pointed out that people say, "Only humans kill for sport..." but he's seen jaguars, cheetahs, and panthers, as well as bears, bighorn sheep, and elk kill and maim each other in blood lusr and territorial fury a hundred times. But Discovery & Animal Planet don't pitch that because the "mankind = evil" agenda gets the funding.

    Anyway ... strong and hungry tops cute and slow most days.

    Kershaw to throw rehab game this weekend
    by Brook Smith | Dodgers Nation — 3 hours ago

    [​IMG]

    The Dodgers should be very close to getting some important pieces back into their starting rotation. Clayton Kershaw and Andrew Heaney have both been out for a decent amount of time, and that has resulted in Los Angeles needing to piece together some starts over the last month or so.

    But help is absolutely on the way. Clayton Kershaw is now scheduled to pitch in a rehab game on Sunday. Dave Roberts had said this past week that the Dodgers southpaw would be making a start at some point this weekend.

    As it turns out, that will be on Sunday in Rancho with the Quakes taking on the Lake Elsinore Storm. Roberts had previously said that ideally, they would like to get Kersh in there for 3 or 4 innings and have him throw an additional inning in the bullpen.

    [​IMG]

    Kershaw appeared in 5 starts before his back issue shut him down. In those 5 starts, he went 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 30 innings of work. That includes him throwing 7 perfect innings against the Twins before being removed early, something Dodgers fans won’t soon forget.

    But if the Dodgers can get him back to being healthy, that should really help out their rotation. They’ve had to rely on guys like Mitch White, Ryan Pepiot, and Michael Grove to get into games with two starters down.

    Curious to see how they handle the rotation when both Kershaw and Heaney are back. Kershaw will obviously start, but how do you move Anderson to the pen? Seems to me Heaney should be headed to the pen.

    forgot about Heaney but that would be awesome if he were to come back and perform
    haven't given up on White either and Pepiot is going to be solid going forward
    think they should explore what kind of return they can get for Price soon if they haven't already

    funny
    because going into the season i would have had the rotation in this order...

    1: buehler
    2: urias
    3: kershaw
    4 (tie): gonsolin/anderson/heaney

    today, if all were healthy, i'd probably have to go...

    1 (tie): kershaw/gonsolin
    3: anderson
    4: heaney
    5 (tie): urias/buehler

    i never would have guessed that, of the six, urias and buehler would be the two struggling most
    of course the season's not even ⅓ done, so a lot could (and probably will) change between now and then

    Didn't see this posted yet, although the move was made prior to last night's game. Pillar's shoulder popped out twice during the third game vs Pittsburg. Dodgers have labeled it a fracture and he's on the IL (McKinstry took his roster spot). Surgery forthcoming.

    It was a nice story, local boy coming home, but have we seen the last of Kevin Pillar in blue?

    You notice any new music that isn't a rehash of soulless old music since about 2012?
    Can't have new music without soul.
    That is why old music has never had a time like it has right now.
    Lots of fresh new sounds in old music.
    It's not about new music not having the same soul.
    It's that it's devoid and empty.
    Unless you deep in the underground.
    But then you already so deep you in the future.

    Let me catch you up.
    Young people hate being called dumb.
    Old people hate being called irrelevant.
    These two dudes got hair triggers for this shit.
    Except I think they got their wires crossed.
    Oh well.
    Best we stay out of it and observe from africa.

    So five Rays players refused to wear gay insignias at Pride Day in FLA.

    When clarifying why, OF COURSE they come across as weak, sissified, gutless mooks in their press release.

    If some LeftPress shitheel asked me to explain why I won't bless the LGB~ agenda ... that response would at least read like a person of faith wrote them. These born agains, and far too many Catholics & lifelong Protestants, always temper their responses like they're running for Congress. If they knew how to speak to their faith, they'd handle it better. But they are JCLs and don't know what to say or do.

    Just say you refuse. If pressed, say the lifestyle runs opposite your faith. If still pressed, tell them to mind their own business & fuck off.

    That last part is my favorite, by the way. Very Jesus of me, I know.
