    I would have rather had Julio PH in the 8th and bunt Will over to 2nd instead of seeing Cody take golf swings. My God he is terrible. He is giving me Andruw Jones as a Dodger vibes this season

    cody should not be in the lineup -- and you could make a strong argument that he should actually be down in the minors trying to figure shit out
    because right now he is not only ineffective, he's hurting the team
    i really cannot fathom why this is so hard for roberts, friedman, et al to understand
    pollock and taylor are clearly better options (probably mckinney too)
    putting cody out there is, quite possibly, ending the team's postseason chances before they even begin
    the difference between playing in a 3/5 series versus a 1 game elimination game should be painfully obvious
    but either they don't see it, or they (for whatever reason) would rather have cody in the lineup than increase the team's chances
    beyond frustrating

    edit: but i see the team just partnered with retailer wss, so priorities i guess

    They’re never going to do that, certainly not Roberts who doesn’t know the meaning of urgency or necessity. He’s too much of a Ted Lasso wannabe.

    Cody sells tickets for better or worse (worse in this case). I just think that after a few years, pitchers have figured him out and his bad tendencies that he got away with when pitchers made mistakes, they’re not making those mistakes anymore. Cody keep swing away.

    We all knew there was a big hole in his swing and he never addressed it. It looks like that won’t happen until this off season, if at all.

    Maybe the federal government and MLB umpires are both trying to do the same thing by sucking kawk at their job this much...

    BTW ... I originally spelled kawk as dick. It refused to post it, claiming it was forbidden. What gives with this bullshit?

    Dodgers turned what should’ve been a 5 run first inning into a donut. Gray pitched like absolute garbage.two hitters had hanging sliders in the middle of the plate that should’ve been homered, Cody made good contact but somehow it was caught

    He literally did better than JT and Mookie. At least he didn’t pop up hanging sliders like JT did or miss them like Smith did

    Why don't we put Kathy Bates in the lineup ? Nothing but fucking Misery from this O.

    He got out and he always gets out. How many of those pitches were strikes to Cody? Those guys at least contribute and deserve to be in the lineup.

    Ok ... they got one, but on a GIDP.

    UNBELEIVABLE how often this team can't bust loose with bases loaded & nobody out.

    First and second 0 outs with a 3-0 count first inning…no runs. Bases loaded 0 outs vs a pitcher with a 5.50 era third inning…1 run. Fucking trash
