    this is troubling and should be addressed one way or the other immediately
    guys that pull that kind of shit have to be extremely talented to be worth ignoring
    Zappa needs to be in another uniform or clarify wtf he's talking about

    Good to see everyone contribute, even Bellinger. Is this the start of something or just a tease?

    cody still looks lost to me
    neither of his hits left the infield
    most of his swings are tentative and he’s continually getting beat on average fastballs
    dude needs a visit to the minors or the alt site to figure shit out, because he’s doing nothing to help the team as is

    About fucking time the lineup steps up during a bullpen game.

    Nice effort by White, his best by far. Well done by the rest of the pen, too. Victor was lucky that hard ground ball found a glove for the DP.

    1-2-3 inning for Uceta with two Ks? The Dbacks should be relegated to the Cal League. Can't believe there aren't better options in the minors or Garcetti's shanty town for that matter.

    One of the future remedies for the Dodgers' talent glut in the lineup would be the universal DH.

    between that and not holding on runners its completely frustrating
    its like fundamentals don't mean shit to him
    was at the game where they loaded the bases in the ninth w no outs and that situation just screams for the element of surprise
    execute a reasonable bunt there and its game over
    other teams don't play us like there is even the smallest chance we'd try it and they're right since we aren't prepared
    probably don't even practice it
    and cody used to use that as a weapon early in his career
    can remember when a guy could slump bust on a few bunts and a willing plumper

    That's discouraging. Didn't watch the game, so in the box score they looked like two solid hits. Is Roberts going to do anything or just continue watching him have one overmatched AB after another?

    my guess would be the latter
    another question… who sits when trae and lux are ready?
    knowing roberts he’ll probably sit taylor and/or pollock
    can already hear it…

    Lux is definitely on the bench

    My guess is everyone gets rotated which may not be the worst thing in the world with all the injuries we keep racking up. Obviously not ideal with lineup consistency but what can you do when everyone and their momma lands on the IL

    Outfield is the best bet where guys take turns against lefties/righties

    Ideally you go
    Mookie (RF)
    Trea (2B)
    Turner (3B)
    Muncy (1B)
    Pollock(LF)
    Smith (C)
    Seager (SS)
    Bellinger/Pollock (CF)
    Pitcher

    Should be him in left.

    Messed up and had Pollock there twice. I’d put him in the rotating player role, giving Seager, Bellinger and Turner days off. It’s a good problem to have but we definitely need his bat there every day since he’s one of the few consistent players on the team
