Hopefully their catcher Perez got the memo ...
Gently CUP the nuts. Don't CRUSH the nuts.
I feel like Quintana is one of those assholes that always owns the Dodgers.
Yeah...Julio is sucking the big carne tonight, indeed...batting practice.
but this guy Queertino just hobbled the Dodgers...I mean everything that was wrong with them is front and center. They are playing incredible defense too.
and we gotta get this kid @ 3b KeBryan or whatever...as I posted last year. Kid's awesome.
Soomebody tell me wtf is going on, please ??
I get that Pitt will beat LA 3-0 tonight. It sucks but I get it.
But how in the blue fuck do the Bucs have 13 hits and just three runs?
Make that 5-1.
Still ... What the hell? It shouldn't be hard to overwhelm these Allegheny backwater mooks.
Dave's "logic" will always baffle me.
Pulls Urias after 61 pitches in his last start but lets him open the 8th tonight with 79 pitches and 10 hits allowed.
Both starting pitchers were fortunate that a lot of hard contact found leather.
I don't think ( even though he's given up more runs in other games) so easily hittable inning after inning than Julio was last night. Just kind of alarming to show weakness like that,..how do you lose it to that degree in one game as opposed to the last few ? I can see not having your best stuff any given day, but that was really unimpressive.
The lineup was as limp as Juan Pierre's arm, too...gotta win the next two
maybe if taylor has to go on the il
otherwise i see roberts throwing mBKitch white out there
Dodgers considering promoting Ryan Pepiot to start Wednesday
by Mark Polishuk | MLB Trade Rumors — 90 minutes ago
The Dodgers have added right-handed pitching prospect Ryan Pepiot to their taxi squad, and manager Dave Roberts told reporters (including The Orange County Register’s Bill Plunkett) that the move “just leaves the option” for the club to potentially start Pepiot for Wednesday’s game against the Pirates. If Pepiot does start, it will mark the 24-year-old’s MLB debut.
By using Robbie Erlin in relief work both on Sunday and Monday, Roberts admitted that “certainly makes it more likely” that Pepiot will indeed get the ball for Wednesday’s game. However, Roberts also cited Andre Jackson as a potential starting candidate, and said that “we’re not going to commit to” a starter for now, “but certainly getting [Pepiot] here in town puts us in a position where we can do that if we choose to.”
There could be some gamesmanship at play here, since it would seem a little unusual for the Dodgers to disrupt Pepiot’s Triple-A routine by bringing him to Pittsburgh and then leaving him on the taxi squad. Or, the Dodgers might simply be weighing some roster considerations, as Pepiot would need to be added to the 40-man (whereas Jackson, who is also at Triple-A, is already on the 40-man roster).
Los Angeles has the need for an extra arm due to a doubleheader last Saturday against the Cubs, and then another doubleheader scheduled for May 17 against the Diamondbacks. All told, the Dodgers are in the midst of a stretch of 14 games in 12 days, so whomever starts on Wednesday will also take the mound for one of those two May 17 games.
Pepiot was a third-round pick for the Dodgers in the 2019 draft, and looks to be the latest in a long line of quality arms developed out of the L.A. farm system. ESPN’s Kiley McDaniel ranked Pepiot 59th on his preseason list of baseball’s best prospects, crediting the right-hander with “probably has the best changeup in the whole minor leagues, an at least 70-grade Bugs Bunny-type offering.” Baseball America (ranking Pepiot 90th on their top 100 list) and MLB Pipeline (99th) have similar praise for Pepiot’s changeup, with BA’s scouting report even giving the pitch a perfect 80 on the 20-80 grading scale.
Pepiot’s 94-97 mph fastball is another premium offering, earning 70-grades from BA and Pipeline. However, his fastball control isn’t great and his slider and curveball are pretty average, leading to questions about whether or not Pepiot’s ultimate future might be in relief pitching. Over 151 total innings in the minors, Pepiot has a 3.75 ERA, 30.22% strikeout rate, and 11.21% walk rate — this include a 2.05 ERA over six starts and 26 1/3 innings for Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.
He got away with a lot fat pitches.
Friedman is a master dumpster diver, but the early returns on Erlin aren't too encouraging.
nice to see rios get a start
too bad it's essentially at ct3's expense
that said, taylor has really been struggling lately so the time off may be a blessing in disguise
A shitty Dodger game is compounded by listening to Dontrelle.
Apparently woooooooooooo is analysis.
Gonsolin’s ERA has to be one of the biggest flukes ever
Mookie! Smith definitely would’ve dropped the ball. https://twitter.com/madchoriyama/status/1524161256344539136?s=21&t=pOtF8rFH4y-o7TXxcoLhcw
Edwin has definitely earned a lot more starts going forward
Dontrelle just said, "Mookie has been driving the bus for a week or so... now he can sit in the back of the bus..."
So yeah. Wokesters give ZERO fucks about this statement, but if any white honky mofo like Rick Monday or Charlie Steiner or Joe Davis had said that.... welp ....
