    Just so I’m transparent, if Lux gets a hit I win $274 in the 8th there. I was pissed.

    But regardless, you pull Lux against a LHP who has just coughed up 4 runs, knowing full well they will pull the struggling relief pitcher and start with a fresh one? For fucks sake. You don’t HAVE to play the matchup. It’s like he’s got a fucking checklist and can’t read the game situations.

    fucking prick.

    i was all for the squeeze attempt on the first shot but WTF on trying it on the next pitch???
    the moron NEVER bunts EVER but decides to go all in on b2b pitches w JT on third...
    guess it could have been montas but ffs that's your slowest guy and the bunt will have to be perfect
    we had just scored 4 runs and the momentum was ours but leave it to davey to seize defeat from the jaws of a resounding comeback victory
    i was at DS and the place was rocking up until our little field general decided to out think himself
    as far as Hudson if he keeps his hands to himself inning over
    then to load them up and watch barnesy ( i know he liked him up there in that spot) but it should have been Alonso or maybe Pillar?
    why isn't he up here getting big ab's?
    sick and fucking tired of how weak we are on thinking from the dugout
    makes me want to just give up until he's fired but its literally all my mom has to look forward to and she'll love the Muncy bobble
    very cute kid btw Max

    The bet was

    Belli to homer
    JT to get a hit
    Freddy to get a hit
    Lux to get a hit
    And Dodgers to win.

    Sure, Lux had three other bats to get that hit, but the Dodgers had no chance of actually winning up until then.

    add to that leaving a guy like anderson in to give up 7 runs
    he wasn't fooling anyone and i get that we are in the midst of a lot of games but why is he left in on a bad night?
    dave never fails to pull a successful guy
    he's not even true to his own ethos
    total failure

    So the thing about that play is he actually deflected it perfectly, it was going right to Alberto as opposed to Alberto having to run one way then come back to the bag, making a double play unlikely because Alberto is slow and fat. It hit the side of a rosin bag and kicked to where Trea had to pick it up. Just shit luck honestly.

    This team is at the top consistently because of the pure degree of talents assembled by the FO.
    But their choice of manager and his amazing " ability " to dilute these talents, and as written above, achieving "defeat from the jaws of victory" is obvious, or should be to even the most casual of bb fans.
    That's why we are always in the vicinity at the end, but only have closed the deal once in over 30 years, especially in recent history. I still think the seasonal elite staus is sufficient to whomever, but the " we're winning it all this year- guarantee" is the usual fake news they know fans love to hear, so they say it. The rarely fulfilled mantra.
    To call Roberts a "great manager" is like calling Joe Biden a great potus.
    Laughable.

    idk i was sitting in 102 and had direct line of sight on that ball
    i think it was TT that was ready to take it and it deflected to Alberto but i could be wrong
    was sure someone was standing behind second and instantly said "that's two"

    It was a heavy RH batter shift 3 infielders on the left side, including Alberto, Trea is the one who made the jump throw that was late.

    after the first attempt, the element of surprise was gone
    plus... if you're going to squeeze there go all in
    fuck safety squeezes
    if you have confidence in the hitter getting the bunt down, then start the runner
    if not, you shouldn't be asking him to bunt
    iirc hanser was the best contact guy in mlb last season
    odds of him getting a base hit, a sac fly, or even a ground ball to the right side were far greater than bunting barnes in
    roberts killed all the momentum trying to get too cute, when what they were doing was getting the job done
    the game was over right then and there

    and like @jpldodgers said, calling on hudson the day after shitting himself is just fucken stupid
    especially with a well-rested kimbrel available

    loading the bases in the bottom of the 9th with no outs was the ultimate tease
    and the fail to score a single run was the perfect end to a nightmare game
    and now kershaw?...

    the fans in the stadium were talking about how we were "back in it" after the eighth
    yeah no shit but we should have been ahead and he killed the rally
    on the way out people were saying what a great game even though we didn't pull it out...
    and i'm just laughing at how low the expectation is for the average Dodger fan these days
    then again most are there for beer and the kiss cam
    they root really loud and just don't care about the other stuff
    still baffles me how families of six manage to get out to the game but man do they cater to that base
    of course they do because besides being slightly dull on the ins and outs they buy the shit out of the concessions
    every time i went to go somewhere i was seemingly dodging waves of offensive linemen and women w full trays of food
    viva los doyers!

    Yup, make sure you bat that .100 hitter at cleanup, Dave.
    Good boy.

    Yeah he gets hot for a week or ten days or whatever, you can't tune in to any bb show without being inundated with Mookie's fabulousity, then he runs and hides for however long.
    And becoming a big K guy at the top.
    Think Dave would maybe try a little shakeup once in a while? TT at the top, Mookie down a little ?
    NAH...
    I think this Phillies series is a bubble burster for us.
    Signs of weakness EVERYWHERE.
