But he’s pretty good. Look, did anyone expect him to hit .300, let alone .369 after a slump of several games? Did you really think he would keep hitting .400+? It’s really pretty silly to be down on him now that he’s hitting a mere .369. He’s 22 years old and next to Hanley Ramirez, he’s the best hitter on the team right now.
“Send him down and don;t let him back up unless he can hit .500.” Wake up, people! This is baseball – the game of streaks. If Kemp returns today, maybe he should sit this one out, but back to the minors? Please! Maybe if his BA drops to .220, but not at .369. Are you mad?
It was another nice win last night. Greinke had no control and was behind every hitter but kept battling. He’s also hitting .406. OK, maybe Puig is just the 3rd best hitter on the team. Can Zach play 2B?
Puig has cooled down and Hanley will likely do the same. The Dodgers need someone else to step up. Who will it be? The pen was great last night. Withrow was filthy and Jansen slammed the door again. My greatest fear is that we will see Brandon League today. If he starts warming up, I am leaving the game. I am serious!
Greinke had good velocity but poor control… but the Dude can rake!
Withrow was just plain filthy!
