Rookie vs. GOAT

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw, IMO, is the greatest of all time (GOAT).  But today he faces a rookie pitcher.  Rookies somehow always do well against the Dodger offense.  So who shall prevail today?  Tune in to ESPN at 5pm PDT to find out.

    I’ve been thinking it will not make ant difference what the everyday players and the bench does, good, bad or indifferent until the starting pitching gets fixed. Nobody but Kershaw pitches into the sixth Ryu and Mc Carthey may be of some help, which is doubtful, but will it be in time? What we are getting from the team as a whole is not worthy of MLB. But you can buy one of those stupid looking fathers day jerseys and throw more money down the drain. I’ve got to call a spade a spade and this all pretty much sucks.

  3. It would appear all the friendly bounces & breaks the Dodgers were receiving on their last home stand have come to a screeching halt on this road trip.
    You can’t put all the blame on Kershaw. If he got the same run support as Arrieta, he’d have at least 13 wins by now.

  4. Kershaw was only human in the second inning tonight.
    Kuhl was pretty cool.
    It’s a tight race for those wild card spots, dem bums just gotta keep at it.

  5. Even the greatest of all time loses a game but how often to a guy making his MLB debut? The Dodgers struggle to score runs for Kershaw but they had enough tonight if he is at his best. He wasn’t.

    So now the Dodgers find themselves 8 games back because the Giants are almost unbeatable the past few weeks, even after loosing Hunter Pence. I have to say it: the Dodgers miss Greinke.

  6. A lot of zeroes in the box score this morning. Kershaw, who is human after all, can’t carry the team every time out. There are times they will have to pick him up. There’s a concept for all you in the FO. That’s what teams do.

    When Koufax was in his prime, the Dodgers won a couple of pennants scoring very few runs, like the team we have now. The thing of it was there were other good pitchers on those teams.

    Roberts has been taking some flack and blame for this season. Aww, bullshit! Too many holes on this team he didn’t assemble.

  7. Bummer!!! Kersh has had two bad innings all year and it has cost him a lose each time. It totally sucks that the offense is so pathetic they can’t take care of their best pitcher..

    This team has serious problems gang. Starting with the FO. The offense sucks. The starting pitching is a joke. And, the bullpen is unreliable…….. We play pretty good defense. That is about the only phase of the game we are doing league average or better. Other than that, we SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. One thing we must learned is that Kershaw won’t be great every time out and that the Pirates have the Dodgers’ number, at the present time.
    Today they just have to forget they’re playing the Pirates.

  9. Tater race…

    Guess the number of combined taters served up in this morning’s game. Win a coupon for a free country skillet at the Denny’s of your choice.

  10. I can’t wait to hear Charley say, ” Chris Taylor hits a long fly ball, it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s gone, but I can’t tell whether it went over the fence or not? Oh heck let’s just say it did.

    Home-run, Chris Taylor!!

  11. So far it’s going according to plan. He didn’t give up a tater. Now we just have to shut ’em down from here on out and belt 5 in the process.

  12. I will just say. Pirates own us! Cant believe Dodgers swept Nationals (yea got lucky not facing strasburg) but losing 3 perhaps 4 to Pirates. This team is so wobbly, I would like to smack it like one of those vinyl Bozo blow up dolls. Label it Dodgers and start the smack down, Im sure it wont Hit back! Ha!

  13. Kazmir, the colossal POS, brought to us by the equally colossal POS Front Office will be with us for another two seasons, so let’s get used to it.
    Bunch of Guggenheim assholes think they know how to own a baseball franchise.

  14. We’re seeing the bad Kazmir today, together with the bad anemic Dodger offense.

    Last night, the local TV sports person said the Dodgers were swept by the Pirates, I guess she’s a pretty good fortune teller.

  15. Not just Puig, but that was a string of hits, and some walks (thats about all Kike can do?)
    Can they start doing more innings like that one!! I flattened the Bozo, any coincidence, I didnt think so, but it was fun!

  16. OK I dont have confidence in the BP, but JP, Blanton, Baez did it, now Doc wants to be clever and have Kenley do the 4 out save, more runs please, this roll of the dice could go anywhere

  17. Whew! That was a close one.

    Lost 3 of 4 to Pirates, when we expected at least a split. Need to sweep the Brewers to make up for it.

  18. We all know Kazmir is inconsistent. We never know how he’ll do, batter to batter but today really took the cake.

  19. Brock Stewart – drafted by Dodgers in the sixth round of 2014. Was originally drafted by the Mets in 2010 in the 40th round straight out of high school, but Stewart elected to go to college at Illinois State University. Pitched okey-dokey in 2014 and 2015 in the minors (WHIPs of 1.544 and 1.358, respectively).

    In 2016, Stewart sports a WHIP of 0.826 and has rocketed up from A+ to AA Tulsa to AAA OKC. He’s a right hander, and Geez we know we don’t have many good right handed starting pitchers, so here’s looking forward to his first MLB start in Milwaukee on Wednesday.

  20. Brock Stewart has only been pitching for three years. He converted from third base to pitcher as a senior at Illinois State University, which would have been 2013.
