I don’t even know whether to laugh or cry. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse:
The biggest game of the year and this is our performance?
Not going to win many of these games. The “offensive juggernaut” went 0-20 tonight.
The players that are SUPPOSED to produce are not producing and the players who are NOT SUPPOSED to produce are sort of producing.
Lincecum walked a batter every inning. 2 runs? 4 hits?
This team is offensively embarrassing. They are painful to watch. Agon is gone. Kemp is not Kemp anymore (LVP-least valuable player). Hanley is pressing and looks awful. Ethier, well, I will give him a pass this time. Victorino sucks.
I tried to be as optimistic as I could that this team would finally “get it”. Boy was I wrong. Reality is sinking in and we have been had. We have been had by a team that does not care as much as we do. Day in and day out they under perform.
Mark Ellis, AJ Ellis, Luis Cruz- thanks for being professional ball players.
Listen, I support our moves, this is not about that.
This is about the passion to play baseball and it looks like our team has none whatsoever.
Does this fall on Don Mattingly and the coaching staff? I think so.
You can’t “teach” these guys to hit, BUT you can motivate and push them. Push them to want to reach new heights and achieve something they have never achieved before. Make them realize they are wearing Dodger blue and that they represent everything this great organization represents. Where is the Dodger pride on this team?
I want Dodgers that show up to San Francisco when a pennant is on the line. Not Dodgers that roll over and enjoy getting steamrolled.
This team deserved a kick in the ass and I am glad they got one.
Maybe next year.
