Dodgers @ Cincinnati (6/9 - 6/12/2014)

Dodgers @ Cincinnati (6/9 - 6/12/2014) 


Uh oh, things aren't looking good for the Dodgers in tonight's game. We are facing the worst of the four Reds' starters of the series; he is 2-6 with a 4.09 ERA. Not only that, we are throwing Haren, who should be going to the all star game as the homerun derby pitcher. The guy loves to watch them fly off the bats of the opponents. If he is on his game, he should be able to give up at least two bombs by the third inning. Ugh! Let's hope he makes a mistake and actually gets guys out. Go Dodgers! noidea

It would be nice if we can actually win one of these four game sets we are not growing so fond of.

I wonder how long it will be before Kemp's teammates get tired of his act; leaving them in scoring position with less than two outs, especially. He started right out tonight hitting into a first inning double play with runners on first and third and one out. Neither Hanley nor Puig looked too happy when they walked off the field. Too bad Kemp's contract was a horrible one for an underachiever who was hyped, that now it is hard to trade him.

You seem to forget about his 3b last few games and being stranded...seems one way..
Lots of other players not named Kemp who have stranded guys which  you seem to have forgotten.

If there is a travesty out there, is why is Joc P not playing CF and Romak is playing OF and 1b?
That is totally ridiculous.

Not at all, Colo, most of the team stinks and I wouldn't be upset no matter who they trade.

There are many stars who are doing poorly.. Big papi, pedroia, Kemp,ethier,McCann,beltre, texera,jeter...
They  all stink for guys who should be closer to .300.
Our guys will snap out of it.

Scotty Van Stache has the #2 OPS on the team.

SVS is jason werth part two and I am afraid we are going to lose him. Any chance we sell AGONE and let SVS learn first base next year?

I was looking at the standings and realized we have the 3rd most wins in the NL and the 5th most wins in MLB. Not a lot of teams are killing it this year so far.

I saw that too and normally we would be like yea we ares struggling but we are still in it but with the way the giants are playing, I think that's where most of our frustrations lie.

Not really, though. A team with a $230+ million payroll should not be just three games above .500. I think the owners put out that kind of money because they assumed they were paying talented players; not a bunch of mid .200 hitters, and a bullpen that stinks. That is more of the frustration, imho.

That is all you got out of what he posted.  Six time all star, five silver sluggers.  Not a star?  Ok.

The Yankees. They're at .500.

Spending gives a team a better shot, but it's obviously not a guarantee of anything. A lot of the Dodger payroll is on pitching, and the pitching's good. Every high-priced player on the everyday roster was at least somewhat of a gamble. We know Kemp and Ethier have been question marks for a few years. We knew Crawford's contract is bloated, and he's battled through injuries. We knew Gonzo's contract is bloated, and he's getting older. Even Hanley has struggled before.


That's where the money's going, and the Dodgers were in a position where they had to pay a lot for what they got. Frustrating, sure, but as said, if the Giants weren't as good, prospects would still be high. In any case, the season isn't over yet.

Can there be a whole dedicated bitching topic so the topics actually cover the games specifically?

Please do not make it a sticky.  If you are a mod reading this try to consolidate and eliminate stickies.

Totally agree but let's say that the giants are not miles ahead, I think it would be less frustrating but I bet with a tad bit more patience on our part. Every day now I check wildcard standings and we aren't even close to July....now that is frustrating!!!

The Giants can be had, but first and foremost the Dodgers need to learn how to beat them, instead of cowering and shaking in their boots every time they face them. I am not sure this group of overpaid underachievers has the ability or heart to do that though. I hope they wake up and start earning the more than generous salaries they are making. Maybe this "huge" (for them) two-game winning streak they are on, will turn into a sustained run. Let's hope.

M.M.
