Anti-clutch is about the right description. I might have to crunch some numbers to prove this but here's the thinking:

    Matt Kemp is anti-clutch, he cannot extend innings. You know he is going to get out, probably by strike out, when you just want one more hit, regardless if it's for an RBI or not. He cannot extend innings, he cannot knock-out the opposing pitcher. He is as predictable as a Loney double-play.

    I love his defense, I love his "potential," but I'm afraid we're seeing Raul Mondesi 2.0. I cannot stand stupid baseball players, unless they hit like Manny(?).

    With Kuroda back, Milton is spare parts. DeWitt makes our bench deeper as well.

    DeWitt has been pretty good in Triple-A. Slash line of .262/.363/.434. Maybe actually a little disappointing because Triple-A is so hitter friendly.

    kemp ties up the game, it's still early in the game, so it doesn't count!

    Wolf had a pretty rough outing today. Didn't really look sharp at all, and I'm guessing Philadelphia was more than a little perturbed by what happened in the last 2 games anyway.

    Splitting a series with the WS champs isn't bad, especially with a Manny-less Dodgers. Considering the Dodgers haven't been hitting well for a while, i'll take a 4 game series split.
