    For you fans of bad baseball... the Dodgers are playing


    They had a 13-0 lead

    It’s 14-11... against the last place Angels

    It’s the Dodgers and if you’re into schadenfreude ....

    This could be history at Dodgers expense

    yeah im curious to see if moving the mound back helps too, I just think its tough to ask guys who have been throwing from the same distance for 20 years to all of the sudden adjust but maybe its not so hard. I hate the idea of abolishing the shift too, but something has to give and Im not sure how its different from bball players not being able to camp in the lane for more than 3 seconds or hockey players not being able to cherry pick past the blue line or whatever

    The mound movement is the easiest solution, but yes slightly inconvenient for people that are currently pros. Most will adjust quicker than we think. Epstein did mention they will look closely when the Atlantic league tries it in regards to player safety, if HBP's skyrocket that might end that experiment.

    I have no issues with the shift, and it would be so hard to end it....it would be creating a new rule, there are no rules for defensive alignment except for pitcher/catcher. Teams were shifting Ted Williams 75 years ago.

    How could you end it? Draw boxes or circles where every position has to start defending from?

    Iím jealous you get 162 games of this type of passion and joy from Dodgers failure. I get a mere 12 games out of Michigan football, which is the only thing that brings me similar joy

    Ohtani just threw seven innings and of 1 run ball with 10 strikeouts and then went to play right field. You will never see another player like him again

    Also, this Gavin Lux kid has never proved anything yet. Would you get Puig now?

    Kelenic is coming up for Mariners Mulva. He was a service time casualty but now Mariners are unexpectedly real. Buckle up.

    Well, they take aged well.

    The Mendoza line hitting (.200) minor leaguer, Lux, smashes me by running into his first grand slam.

    So I wanted to take Ben to a Dodgers game today -- the first I'd be going to since the 2019 playoffs.

    However, things have changed.

    People have money to burn, since the government has been hammering out checks to everyone, and at the same time, nobody could go anywhere to spend money on things.

    The stadium is at very reduced capacity.

    People are eager to go out and do things.

    Sellers cannot split seats. So season ticket owners of 4 seats, often sold in pairs of 2 and 2, have to sell as 4.

    All of this combined to cause huge demand for games like tonight (versus a shitty Seattle team) which otherwise would have drawn collective yawns on a Wednesday night during a regular year.

    Specifically it is REALLY tough to get 2 seats, since there are far more people wanting 2 seats than selling 2 seats.

    A few exist on Stubhub and other sellers, but the seats are shitty and they are way marked up. I'm not paying 2018 NLCS prices to see a Wednesday night game against the Mariners. Sorry, I ain't doing it.

    So it might be awhile for me.

    Jarred Kelenic is already a top-five player in Mariners history.

    That whole story is still the most underrated part of this season. I'm still laughing how the former executive told the truth about service time manipulation (while zooming with a fucking rotary club) and got fired for it....AND THE TEAM STILL DID IT AFTER.

    So uh....why did he get fired again?

    Funny seeing the reaction in the Dodgers Facebook group I'm in.

    Some are thrilled, thinking he's a huge addition.

    Some think he's old and worthless and a "waste of money", not realizing he was like $450k.

    This actually isn't a bad gamble, given that he can provide some power off the bench, might feel reinvigorated by the new opportunity, and is making the MLB minimum (from the Dodgers, at least). Low downside to it.

    I told everyone to accept the fact that he's probably 44 years old, though. Because he probably is.

    Yeah its no risk, and a smart business move. Probably will help sell a few extra tickets, maybe some jerseys. Good press, giving him a farewell tour after the Angels just dropped him.

    Any production is basically a bonus.

    Can Pujols play short?

    The Dodgers ran immaculate & pure health-wise last year. In the midst of a Pandemic, no less. Teams like the Mariners had 11 men out at once. Not the Dodgers. Zero.zero.

    Well, variance has a way of smoothing shit out - doesn’t it?

    Seager



    I say this without malice cause I have a bet on the Todgers. I am reciting the gamblers prayer. You know the words. I promise I will never again.

    Malice tomorrow.

    Bauer 103 pitches. Roberts has him hitting now.

    Send Bauer back out too. Why not.

    Dodgers

    Pujols will be getting a lot of Muncy time.. He's not very good and taking all them pitches and then swinging and missing going to get him benched.

    He was killing the Angels. Unwatchable. Angels are like a new team now.

    Roberts is a prince amongst retards. He’s letting Bauer call the shots. I know the bullpen is warm shit but you can’t do this. Bauer is looking for TWitter material.

    Padres get hit with Covid and then reel off a few wins. This team is poised for a big run and going with the homer pick tomorrow. Padres sweep Cards -140 a good price with Weathers against their 4th best starter.

    Ya he was a liability.. As my Dad would say he has 2 pianos on his back. He could hit a one hopper to left and get thrown out at first.
