Another stellar offensive game. Pretty obvious last night was the exception, not the norm.

Freaking Kemp needs to wake the F up, 3Ks today.
Beckett must be pissed, starts like he had today are few and far between and to have it wasted really sucks.
I'm a Cruz supporter but his lucky horseshoe from last year has lost its effectiveness, when Hanley gets back I'd like to see moved to 3rd and bring up Dee, to spark this team.

I don't really think Dee is the answer to spark the team (hitting .286 with 3 errors already to lead the Isotopes--although he his walking more than usual, at least). Unfortunately, they need to acquire a legitimate 3B (or SS and move Hanley to third), and I don't know who they can realistically target. Headley isn't going to happen just because of the sheer cost in prospects that the Dodgers don't have the luxury of trading (Padres would at least want Lee and Seager for starters IMO).

He OPS'd .774 in his time with the Dodgers. His walks are down, too, which is a bit disconcerting. He walks less, strikes out more (had his highest K% in his career last season), and has lost a solid amount of his power.
For how much money the Dodgers have spent on this lineup, it's not nearly as good as it should be.

These games are all way too damn long. And if it weren't for Vin they wouldn't even be worth watching.

He had shoulder surgery in the off season? I'm sure that even if his shoulder completely healed his regular routine getting ready for the season was messed up. He'll be fine.

Cruz and Sellars need to go. Those two are hard to stomach. And speaking of hard to stomach, Ethier is an easy out with a lefty on the mound with RISP.

Kemp still looking like dog crap, I'm sure eventually he will be fine but I'd like that to be before September

Let's hope that's all it is.

Well on their way to being swept by the Padres. This team is a real **** show so far this season.
