    incompetent umpires, incompetent league, and a manager who refuses to talk back or stand up to an umpire.

    Freeman's body language is pretty troubling, man.

    Yeah, juggernaut team roster. Walking wounded MASH unit who score 14 runs in one game, and then 10 for the rest of the week's games, if they're lucky.
    And now that Bobby Miller has been sent to the minors, the fireballing Kike Hernandez will probably be inserted in the starting staff.
    If LA does maintain it's lead...IF...the Roberts guy will be taintlicked until he's raw. But the secret will be, that the competition in the NLW is barely reaching the mediocre line. But like the Mendoza line, which is sadly respectable now, and shattered to pices, it could turn on a dime.

    Kyle Schwarber is a drama queen.
    After bb iis over for him, he will transition.

    Not the best of nights for the kids.

    Vargas botches a play in the field, dogs it to first and forgets how many out there were.

    Pages loses one in the lights.

    Outman decides to bunt (twice) on his own. Nothing wrong with an occasional bunt, but not in that situation.

    i put that on the coaching staff
    the minors for not teaching them, and the mlb staff for not enforcing it
    any manager worth his salt should have pulled vargas on the spot after not hustling
    imagine the message that would have sent
    and therein lies the problem…
    roberts clearly avoids any type of confrontation like the plague
    and it’s become endemic throughout the team, if not the entire organization
    and lest we forget, discipline be damned…
    • never argue with an umpire — let them know you’re soft, er, on their side. sure you’ll never get a call and they’ll never respect you, but who cares… they’ll consider you their pal
    • why discipline a player and risk embarrassing them when encouragment (butt pat) is a far better option. again, being someone’s pal is far better than having their respect
    • always play r/l matchups and never play the hot bat. who cares if you’re rarely right as long as you follow “the book”
    yup, the new dodger way

    It's getting really hard to believe. not as an expression. I mean difficult to accept as a person who has been watching baseball for decades.
    After Christian Walker comes this with Turner.
    The Dodgers have more players who crush them than any other team has, I would venture to say.

    A roster littered with mediocre players. Friedman really is a piece of shit

    Vegas knows what they’re doing by making the Dodgers heavy favorites every year to win the WS. Easy money. People see the big names on the roster and look past all the horrible players that somehow play all the time and the inept manager. Friedman probably has a deal lined up for a relief pitcher with a 6.50 era and a .120 hitter to save the season.

    I get it. And I agree with you. But the mediocre players got on, as they did last night, and two All Star ( soooo important for cred) in a row didn't do shit to get them in. Won't even bring up what one of them gets paid.
    And it is exactly what they did last night, multiple times, in a game they could have won.
    Against good teams, do they even stand a chance at all?
    Second worst starters ERA in MLB ? When's the last time the Dodgers had that?

    Yeah, that made me turn the game off. Somehow all the scrubs got on for Ohtani/Will and they can’t even plate a run. Inexcusable as hell….the Phillies would do the Dodgers 08/09 style if the Dodgers meet them in the playoffs.

    It'd be nice if even one fucking person on this lame ass garbage team acted like they gave a shit for a second.

    Teoscar is less than exciting these days, too. What clownass swings this series.

    just a reflection of their "leader"
    can't believe i'm reading articles asking why the team has engaged tater in serious extension talks
    he's just such a nothing person w zero to offer beyond a high five and a butt slap
    the guy's surprised when outman is bunting yesterday and today i'm sure
    i remember when it was the managers job to make that call not to mention have them prepared to do the job
    outmans bunt attempts were pathetic and showed he had no form or idea wtf he was doing
