    Watching the white Sox. Grandal has two passed balls a catchers interference and literally the worst/laziest framing I’ve ever seen. Cost Rodon probably 20 extra pitches and a run in the 4th.

    So glad to be done with him - Colletti would have given him 5/90

    #Dodgers have hit .203 as a team over the past 12 games, only scored 8 runs in past four games ... and they've gone 9-3 over past 12. Five shutouts by their pitchers.

    Offense really needs to get going. Doesn’t help that we lost Cody and Lux to the IL and the defense has been struggling too

    Kenley gaining back the velocity and cut (especially cut) has me thinking two things. He's throwing buddies with Bauer so Bauer is sharing his special stuff with him, and also MLB altered the balls a lot more than they let on. I've heard reports of pitchers saying the seams are raised, probably making it easier to spin the ball.

    stats speak for themselves...

    @BillShaikin
    Kenley Jansen has faced 32 batters this season. He has allowed 2 hits, and he has struck out 10.


    Would be such a pleasant surprise and terrifying for the rest of baseball if the old KJ is here to stay

    Yeah...shouldn't be too difficult for Robots to figure out how to pretty much make that happen on a regular basis.

    We are dead with injuries. Roberts needs to stop resting the stars. Rest the stars in a week when we get guys back.

    I mean I kinda get it. Turners age and now Mookie with a stiff back and forearm issues

    We complain about resting guys but I mean it’s worked well for the most part these last few years
