    Really wonder what the thinking behind no Rios is. Maybe his power doesn’t play as well in that stadium and his K’s are worrisome? Lux at bats in sim games are impressive? Or maybe scared of Rios lack of versatility since he’s basically barely a corner infielder and then DH. Who knows.

    Another thought is you might need Lux more at 2B to possibly put Taylor in the big ass OF?

    Anyways, I wish the best for Lux but it should also not matter, our other guys need to win us these games

    And just realized it’s not only Lux over Edwin, but also Gore/Beaty over him. That is a little weird, I thought Rios’ had plenty of good at bats

    not a fan of a roster spot going to a pinch runner, but beaty over rios is the one that puzzles me

    less than a week ago clevinger had a bp session shut down
    and now he’s the game 1 starter?
    this is either an act of desperation, or he was fine the whole time
    either way, bring him on

    It makes me wonder if something is going on with Rios, like maybe he tweaked something?

    Think he was fine all along. How do you get it all back all of a sudden ? Faggots.
    Today is essentially a bullpen game, in the way I look at it.
    Buehler having 1 to 3 great innings, Ks, then the comes inning with the base hits, walks, and the definite HR. If we haven't scored some by then, then we play behind while it all is on the backs of our overused pen. And then they talk about the overated blister boy Buehler.
    I hope I'm wrong, but the 3 inning fabulousity then the crash/ burn has been going on all year with this guy.
    I haven't seen much else from him.

    I hope I am wrong, but I'm predicting the Padres in 4. I think they are having a lot of fun, and are pumped to play us with their star and even secondary players being on fire right now while ours looked just as spooked as always to be in the playoffs. That first round success was only Mookie and Taylor driven on the offensive side while we once again took bad hacks and made a lot of weak contact. Buehler, Kershaw and Urias were great, but our offense needs to show up. Something we have been saying every year since this run began. I will be legit shocked if we come out of this the victor.

    he has to be pissed or at the very least hurt and confused
    the guy was breaking out in a major way and beatty hasn't contributed at all this season
    thought he was putting pressure on a guy like muncy tbh
    sure davey has his reasons

    Ah, so Edwin Rios was injured on Sunday during a workout. Darn. That’s a much better explanation haha

    Great idea. Kelly gets suspended and does minimal damage to his team's chances.

    With Profar resembling a mlb hitter that lineup has no holes.

    Can we change it to "Matt Holliday, if he were playing for the Dodgers?"

    Edit: NVM, he would clearly be raking and wouldn't be a potential "break out" player.
