- Lance Lynn is a local boy from about 4 miles away from where I live and around here, we like him a lot, but if he has to be beat like a rented mule, I’m glad the Dodgers did it!
- Some people have the misconception that Yasiel Puig is not as good a last year and they would be right – he’s BETTER! You can see the STATS for yourself. He is walking a lot more, striking out less, he already has more RBI’s than all of last year – in 100 fewer AB’s! His OB% is higher, his OPS is 5 points lower, he has twice as many triples as last year and 2 fewer doubles in 100 less AB’s! His HR rate is down slightly, but that can change in 2 days. He is a worthy All-Star Starter!
- What is it with all the leg injuries on this team? There has to be a common thread. Conte?
- Don’t look now, but Dee Gordon is back near .300 – the Dude is for real.
- Perez, Maholm and Ethier have just a little trade valve. Not much.
- Zach Greinke sure bounced back from his bad outing against the Royals.
- It would be appropriate if Kershaw puts the Dodgers in first place by firing a no-hitter. Is that too much to ask?
