Julio Urias got the job done in game one of the Milwaukee Brewers series. He was not helped by one Pedro Baez. He was helped by one heroic catch by Joc Pederson. Now it’s fellow rookie Brock Stewart’s turn to show us what he has got.
From yesterday’s fun:
griz said: “At this rate they’ll have to let Ned out of his closet so he can resume dumpster diving.”
Beav said: “I still wish they’d throw in the towel and go whole hog into the youth movement though.”
JhallWally said: “I’d like to give our FO an enema. They are full of shit.”
messagebear said: “I’d settle for two good prospects; one who can actually hit for some power and preferably be a catcher, the other a starting pitcher who’s not had a Tommy John surgery already and isn’t on the verge of one.”
koufax1963 wrote a song:
Id like to see the dugout in harmony
No squabbles with Puig to see
No injuries, swollen knee and all are pain free
On the bench Turner can jaw at Grandal
But on the field somebody has to call for the foul ball
The Dodgers as a team are not living the dream
Although FAZ is trying to make it seem
We all know this is not the real thing
lbirken had a lot to say – see yesterday’s post for his discussion of the front office and the 2016 Dodgers.
messagebear told the front office where to get off
jhallWally said “3 for 14 with RISP. UNACCEPTABLE!!!And unsustainable if you hope to contend for a playoff or championship…”
he added “Why is Baez still on this team. The dude sucks like a Dyson…”
Meanwhile, I’m not sure what the lineup will look like with Joc Pederson taking a rest day or two or four to let his bruised shoulder heal up. I think (unless I didn’t count right) that puts us at zero able-bodied left handed hitting outfielders. Get well soon, Joc. Get well soon, Andre.
‘Twas nice to see Grandal get two RBI’s yesterday, but he still went 0-5 with four ground-balls (one for a double play) and a strikeout. This dude is not right. We traded away Matt Kemp and we got a catcher who hits .178.
Anyways, good luck to the Dodgers and good luck to Brock Stewart! May he get his first major league Win and his first major league hit! Follow Julio’s lead!
