    Be careful not to look at that photo of Harang late at night

    If we don't at least win two it's absurd

    This should hopefully be a good week for Joc to break out of his slump

    Any time would be a good time. He has become pretty much an auto out...from RoY talk to K King.
    I understand how pitcher's start to focus on a hitter's weakness after a while, and control a player who is initially a stud...like Kemp with the sliders was, or Yasiel.
    But with Joc, I don't see a specific approach used by opposing pitchers...he Ks against everyone, whoever they are or whatever they throw. It's him, and therein lies the answer.
    I hope he can make some adjustment...

    He will. He's pressing like no one I've ever seen before... even Kemp.

    He's a mess up there right now. I can't recall ever seeing a professional ball player look like that before(It's not the swings, it's the body language). He looks like he is just hoping to make contact when he is up there. Both him and Puig are such emotional guys and when they are slumping, they wear it on their sleeves. Hopefully he breaks out of this in the series or the club will have to do something.

    Aaron Harang? The Dodger record holder for most consecutive strikeouts in a game?

    Also, a pretty neat story on Alex Wood, well neat to me but probably not very interesting.

    Awhile back, 2011, I went to a UCLA baseball game mostly cause Gerrit Cole pitching was a must watch event. The dude opposing him, from Georgia, ended up outdueling him but after watching him, I kept telling my friends "yeah well that guy is probably a future reliever anyways" because I'm a huge hater. I honestly didn't even really care to look up the guy, for whatever reason. Then years down the road, my friend and I realized it was Alex Wood. I'm a great scout!

    People just need to get MLB.TV and unlocator (if you are in the Dodgers blackout region).
