Posted: 04/21/2014 4:18 PM

Phillies at Dodgers 4/21-4/24 


Thought I would start this thread.
Lee vs. Maholm - Today
Burnett vs. Ryu - Tomorrow
Hamels vs. Greinke - Wednesday
Kendrick vs. Haren - Thursday


I hope the Dodgers take 3 out of 4.

Tough pitching matchup for us. We need another great game from maholm.
Against Lee we will need Puig,HRam,Kemp or the amazing Uribe to step up. 
We are not going to get a lot of opportunities against Lee so we need a bomb or two.

Hey guys new to this site, but eager to talk dodger baseball.

Anyone else feel like last night was kinda like a throw away game?

Question: IS this platoon outfield thing actually helpful? I don't think it is but I am wondering what you guys think.

Thanks

It's not helpful. Hard to get in a good groove when your in one day and out the next. I'm tired of it. Should be able to get some runs off of Burnett tonight tho.. Or at least I hope.

Not a fan of the platoon.   So far it is a disaster and with some kids I think it would work but not with Crawford, Ethier, Kemp and Puig as the guys that need PT and to add SVS in makes it a lot worse.   These guys need their ABs and swings.   The line-up changes way too often and no one has any rhythm.

Puig should not be batting leadoff.   As long as Gordon is getting on base use him, if not go back to Crawford.   Crawford, Kemp and Puig need to be your starting outfield with Ethier getting 3 games a week max - one for each of the other three.   SVS needs to be off the bench (SVS can play but 5 outfielders is way too many for this team).

Agree in total. I do wish SVS would get more AB's though, he is talented and can hit with more power than andre, kemp, and crawford. I know kemp could have pop but he hasn't been the same since his injuries.

Its a small sample size but Joc Pederson is just mashing AAA: 
  
.426.530.7651.295

This has to make Andre expendable. No way in hell you should trade Pederson because he is a natural center fielder where as Either just gets by. Trade Andre for a catcher or a utility guy that can play SS/3B.

Most teams carry 5 outfielders. Manly cuz of CF being a tough position.
Platoon will work OK till mid may and by  then we  will know more of JocP ability to hit AAA so he can be counted as BU if needed in CF this year.
Next year I can see him as main 4th OFer.
Ethier becomes expendable  in a month.

Tonight's game will be a low scoring affair.,. 2-1 or 3-2..
Hopefully our bully can hold down the fort at end.

Re: Phillies at Dodgers 4/21-4/24 


Gordon, crawford and Puig should be 1,2 and 3.
Agon.. 4, and HRam 5 till he starts hitting, Kemp 6
Mattingly lineup today is strange.
We can't seem to get enough hits together to score lately.
Need a bomb from Puig,agon,HRam,Kemp or uribe.
Can't wait till Ellis gets back... FedEx is a black hole.

Teams do not platoon 5 OFers.  Just does not happen unless you don't have guys that are worthy of playing everyday.   No one has an issue with the 5 OFers being on the roster, just why are you trying to platoon 5 of them?

We are just a bad team right now 


Mattingly is making the obvious holes larger by misusing his strengths.    Are we going to lose every extra inning game?   The team plays like he manages - that is it is a long season and no game and no at bat really matters.  

Dodgers versus MLB teams  3-7

Versus triple A teams 2-1

Versus double A teams 7-1

Re: We are just a bad team right now 


Twenty-three errors in twenty-one games tells the story. Unless things radically change, or we get rid of some of those who are starting to appear as over paid, over hyped, Hollywood "stars", this team is going nowhere this year. It is a long season, but the games in April count as much as the games in September. This team is not fun to watch, but dreadful. They are being outclassed by a team that could finish last in the NL east. Wake up guys; you are not as good as you think, and not worth paying to see right now.

Crawford is expendable, Ethier is not, except if Pederson is ready to handle it.

Who is trying to platoon 5 outfielders?
3 starters and 2 reserves. Simple.
