    I get that a guy who has been around as long as Cody, a veteran, or maybe a pre-veteran, like diabetes, kind of earns the right to work it all out in the Show. But given the longevity of his JU 57 Stuka steep dive, sirens blaring, maybe it's time for the once spectacularly talented ex MVP to try a different tack to get back on track.
    idk what is done these days...stint in the minors...baseball psychologist guy...drug fueled weekend in Tiajuana...or Happy Felton's Knothole Gang, maybe? ( That's one for you fellow ancient ones).
    But something.
    Just gotta try something else...too much past and potential there to risk the droning mantra of failure to continue unabated...with not only possible crushing individual results, but worse, spilling over to the team.
    And of course, I don't believe the manager capable of fixing it by any of his methodologies.

    Why is Belli batting 7th, in front of Chris Taylor. What is the thought behind this?

    'Thought' is a noun unknown to Dave Roberts. The guy hasn't had an original one since he stole 2B in 2004. And I'm fairly certain the bench told him to do that, too.

    Whereas, in total contrast, Showalter has said that the Mets have a " quiet determination and purpose for winning, just want he wants in his team "...
    No braggadoccio, no stupid guaranteed predictions, just win, baby...win.
    Nothing worse than overconfidence.
    Fast track to utter disappointment.

    well especially coming from him
    i don't think there are many that watched the first two WS that felt they weren't completely winnable w another field manager
    another one of those awesome equity hires without a clue as to why anyone should have a problem

    cheers mate. Good to settle down and enjoy the Dodgers again. Hope all is well with you too.

    I dunno though, I would usually lose my shit after a frustrating loss yesterday, and getting spanked today, but the whole World Series thing was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I can actually just enjoy the games, lol.

    I certainly hope this complacency with the " enjoyment" watching the team is short lived, I must say.
    Understand me, not that I don't want you to enjoy things, but you losing your shit over the LAD was always something special.

    Agree 100%.
    Superstars and multimillionaires Mookie and Freeman up there in multiple spots to get right back in the game, and leave it exactly the same way it was hefore they got up.
    The air is thin, the wind blowing, the K zone the same, and it was shortened ST for the Rockies, too...only they were much better at it all than we were.

    Dodgers are becoming a retirement home for players that used to be good
