I never really pay attention to the Dodgers until June because of the Lakers and I wish that was still the case this season lol but I'm looking forward to this season it SHOULD be a great one. Hopefully Greinke and Kershaw will be the best sp duo in the league and our other new guys live up to their hype. At least we have the right owner finally. A world series title is coming eventually

Championship or bust. This is the lineup I want to see

RF Crawford
2B Mark Ellis
CF Kemp
1B Gonzalez
SS Hanley
LF Ethier
3B Cruz
C Ellis
SP Pitcher

I wish Dee Gordon was a switch hitter he could offer so much versatility we have too many left handed hitters who arent speed guys

That is the most likely lineup you will see (either that or Mark Ellis & Crawford swapped) except Ethier is going to be in RF, not Crawford.  Carl has never been a RFer, and they especially wouldn't try him there now after having Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm...

 

This is the lineup I would like to see, if Dee Gordon can prove that he is ready to be a MLB SS & leadoff hitter:

 

SS Gordon

LF Crawford

CF Kemp

1B Gonzalez

3B Ramirez

RF Ethier

2B Cruz

C Ellis

Pitcher's spot

I would do the same thing
I'd much rather have Gordon at SS so we can have Ellis come off the bench and we can put Hanley on third where he plays better D

Gordon would be better suited down in the 8th spot IMO.  Crawford is our legitimate leadoff guy, Gordon still has a lot to learn about hitting in that spot.  Being in the 8th spot would allow Gordon to see more fastballs and with a pitcher hitting behind him, pitchers would have to choose whether to pitch to Gordon or put him on base (not what you want to do with him) if they want the pitcher up at the plate instead. 

 

He can probably hit in the #2 spot, but I really like Mark Ellis there and even wouldn't mind seeing AJ in that #2 spot either.  Really smart hitter who would benefit from hitting in front of our 3-4-5-6 guys.  

 

Crawford

M. Ellis

Gonzalez

Kemp

Ramirez

Ethier

AJ Ellis

Gordon

pitchers spot

 

or

 

Crawford 

AJ Ellis

Gonzalez

Kemp

Ethier

Ramirez

Cruz

M. Ellis

pitcher's spot

 

 

I don't think Gordon starts the year with the big club, I think he stays in triple A for a bit but will be called up within a couple months.

Puig looks good. I wonder if we have a Mike Trout/Vernon Wells situation like the Angels did

*Might*

No need to rush him back. The good thing is he didn't irritate the nerve throwing or swinging. He was hit by a pitch so that's what caused the stiffness.

Still wont be surprised if Dodgers go out and get another LF as insurance.

They don't need to go out and get anyone, they have the OF covered with or without Crawford...

Why aren't they playing puig at catcher?

His arm strength and accuracy looked legit in RF.

I assume ethier is the one some want gone?

I wouldn't say that people necessarily want Ethier gone, but he is the odd man out if Crawford is healthy and good to go for the next few years.

Andre has a decent contract compared the market for OFers these days. He could easily be traded...

thanks for the reply, feel like I'm ignored in this thread(I come in peace).

What's the story with Puig?
