There’s not much to say about this bunch – they have the 2nd best OB% in the NL and are almost last in runs scored and last in hitting with RISP. That’s all you need to know. No matter how you spin it, this team is a bunch of choke artists. There is no fix for this team until they collectively quit choking in the clutch. There is no fix unless that happens. It’s a malaise that is entombing this organization.
- Amezaga is hitting .391 at AAA – Schumaker is hitting below his weight. It might be worth a try. Option Cruz.
- Is Ramon Hernandez taking up a roster spot so that Ned can claim he didn’t GIVE AWAY Aaron Harang? Get him off the squad!
- Ronald Belisario has a good year every other season. He was good last year – now he reverts back to crap. Look at the bright side: he’ll be good next year.
- James Loney is leading the AL in hitting! That speaks volumes to me about the Dodgers problems. It seems to me that they have all the wrong people in coaching capacities. I believe it is a systemic problem.
- Remember when Jerry Sands was supposed to be the Second Coming and I didn’t have him in my TOP 10? These other geniuses at many other sites had him at the top. He’s now Mr. Irrelevant at .136 in AAA. What a fall.
- Steve Dilbeck of The LA Times follows the players on last years team.
- Greinke will likely make his next start. Not a shabby recovery!
- Good day!
