And I hate stats that people try and use to prove some obscure point about something that is not even worth knowing.
Some bloggers write this stuff like we must be blind and read Braille because what is sometimes written flies in the face of the “eye test.”
I won’t elaborate, but take it for what it is worth.
OK, it doesn’t take a stat geek to figure out that the Dodgers beat two teams that weren’t very good (D-Bags and Friars), while they had a problem with a really good team… and make no mistake, the Giants are a good team. They have made plays and the Dodgers haven’t! Period. Simple as that,
It appears that I was premature in praising Yasiel Puig. I retract it all.
Situational hitting is still the problem. For the past 5+ years it has been. Fix it or get rid of the players.
Really though, look at the Giants manager and the Dodgers manager – are you really inspired by Mattingly? Do you think he can make in-game decisions that will prove significant? How about Lorenzo Bundy?
I think we have the wrong manager, but I have felt that for 3 years. What do I know?
At least Gordon is batting in the right spot.
It’s not gloom and doom, but I don’t like the leadership of the team.
This could be a tough year if they don’t figure it out soon. It’s only two games but the Dodgers looked like a Little League team against the Giants.
