    Harper didn't play in the Padres series which means he will return vs us and blast 5 HRs in 3 games

    Fucking Pads shut out the same Phils twice that destroyed our pitching staff last weekend.

    Because Farhadi has assembled a staff which matches ours, if not surpasses it.

    Y'all can beat up on Dontrelle all you want, but show me another guy ( black or white) who's got the gonads to say
    about Phil Bickford's beautifully conditioned flowing hair, " I don't have to worry about that"...
    Fucking heroic in these times!
    Haha.

    Oh, and Julio looking mucho bueno. Mucho.
    But 8 hits and 6 walks and if Freddie's not in there...we lose?
    Anyway, a W is a W.
    Sweep these troglodytes !

    Freddie Freeman is almost too good to be true. Dude is amazing and I still can't believe he's a Dodger.

    He hasn't learned tne Dodger ways yet...have top shelf talent everywhere on the roster, but keep ultimate success to a bare minimum.

    Five shutout innings for Urias after the ass kicking he took last weekend against Philly was great, but they've got to get more innings out of both he and Buehler. Phillips has been a another great scrap heap pickup, but he was very lucky last night. Got away with a handful of hanging sliders.

    Failure to add on almost cost them last night. Someone please return the 2021 first half Taylor to us. He's been brutal.

    A couple of really nice plays by Trea last night.

    Story in the LAT referred to him as "fan favorite." Guessed I missed that during his tenure here.

    Opposing fans definitely loved when he entered the game.

    dude needs a rest badly
    but, for whatever reason, the team is only carrying three outfielders (plus lux) so there’s really going to be few days off
    imo they should call up pillar or someone else to mix in here or there
    also… some guys are better in the utility role are don’t do as well with an everyday/regular role
    seems like they’re trying to force taylor into an everyday job based on salary instead of what he’s best suited to be
    they need to do something because he’s struggling mightily and lux is clearly not a good option in the utility role
    just my two cents

    i want to like mitch white
    and he’s okay if you need someone to eat up innings in a 12-2 game
    otherwise he’s pretty meh
    average stuff, average velocity, misses location…

    edit: … falls behind hitters, doesn’t miss bats…

    Simply a poor choice to start White in this bandbox stadium. Not smart at all.imo.

    Yeah I want to like him too just seems to give up runs every time he gets a shot
    A little consistency and he's in the rotation

    A Mitch White and David Price combo?

    I'll watch our minor league teams for better pitching.

    The Dodgers should have stayed in bed today instead of showing up at kiddie park, it looks.
    Completely befuddled.
