- The Dodger were 69-58 with James Loney and Juan Rivera at 1B.
- The Dodgers are 9-15 with Adrian Gonzalez at 1B.
I’m just sayin…
The Giants lost their best hitter who just happened to be leading the N.L. in hitting at about the same time and they just got better. The Dodgers tried to get better and got worse. It’s a choke job no matter how you spin it.
If the Dodgers don’t make the playoffs, this will be one of the most epic choke jobs of all time. They were a game out of first place when Gonzalez was acquired, now they are 10 games out. There’s no other way to tell this tale: it is a choke job. I want to be clear that it’s not just by A-Gon – it’s a team effort!
I have a feeling Clayton Kershaw may pitch Sunday.
I have mixed emotions about that. It’s kind of like seeing your mother-in-law drive off a cliff in your new Mercedes.
AJ Ellis is who we thought he was!
There’s still time to make the playoffs, but they are going to have to hit their way in – that’s a novel idea.
