@dylanohernandez 1m

#Dodgers lineup right now: Gordon, Punto, Kemp, Cruz, AJ Ellis, Ethier, Uribe, Herrera, Kershaw. Basically back to where they were in 2012.

7 loses in a row.

 

I think this team is building too big of a hole to climb out of.

You would think that but we are only 6 games back and no one is really going to run away with this division.

 

But I have no faith in this team to get out of a hole that small.  Everything has gone wrong this year.

That last inning said it all...Schumaker doubles to lead it off. Ellis grounds out, Andre strikes out, Crawford who is hurt flies out. Just a mess

 

I thought Jansen would be a solid alternative if League were to be replaced and he gives up a homer, now the bullpen is a mess. Tired of this

So he can bash the Lakers all he wants when they're struggling, but has to be fake about the team he owns? Got it.

LOL!

To be fair to Magic though, he's never played baseball so he has no room to talk or open his mouth. It's bad publicity for the team if he were to call them out as an owner, it's not something they need right now.

Basketball he feels he can say whatever he wants.

I feel bad as a fan right now but baseball is the worst sport to be in a slump in because it makes you feel helpless. It's a difficult sport to play and when you're playing bad, it's frustrating as hell and you feel like you have no answers.

They are making millions so they need to right the ship soon or the season is done just two months into it.

All the new guys are doing ok so far except for League

 

Hanley HR and 2B in 1st start back. Last yr in August he destroyed the baseball and had most RBI's in major

A-Gon last year .300 with RISP today 2 more RBI's top 10 in NL

Crawford leads the team in HR

Greinke was fantastic before the brawl/injury

 

most of the new guys have lived up to their contract stupid injuries have kept them out. Damn Ethier, Kemp doing SQUAT and they been healthy this whole time

 

This was from 2 days ago

 

http://www.rantsport...for-slow-start/


 

So who is to blame?

Manager Don Mattingly or new hitting coach Mark McGwire are easy targets, but I hate blaming a manager or coach for a team who can’t hit or pitch in tough situations.

Most Dodgers fans wants to blame injuries. Sure, they have hurt Dodgertown, but Band-Aids and braces are part of the game. The New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves have spent just as much time on the disabled list and they still sport better records than the Boys in Blue.

 

The solution to the blame game is simple: Enter Mr. GQ Matt Kemp and Mr. Softspoken Andre Ethier.

The pair of Dodgers outfielders are the longest-tenured position players on the team. They should be the leaders. They should be the stars. They should be living up to the big contracts they signed last year. But, through the first month of the season, they have shown no signs of doing any of those things.

 

Kemp, who once spouted he would be a 50-home run, 50-stolen base player, has just one home run in 117 at-bats. Ethier has just three in 108.

It gets worse. It’s no secret the Dodgers have been terrible as a team with runners in scoring position, but point the biggest finger at Kemp and Ethier. The former is hitting .176 (6-for-34) and the latter is batting .133 (4-for-30) with runners on second or third this season. They also have combined to strikeout 19 times during those crucial situations.

 

Both sluggers built on those numbers once again during Monday’s loss in the series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Down 3-2 in the third inning, the Dodgers had runners on first and second with nobody out. Kemp proceeded to ground out into a fielder’s choice. His partner in crime followed with an inning-ending double play. So long, momentum.

 

During the team’s five-game losing streak, Ethier and Kemp are just 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position with one RBI.

We keep hearing that Kemp and Ethier will start to hit. “The bats will start to come around,” we hear.

Well. Talking is for Spring Training.

They better hurry up. It will be June in no time, and the way the two Dodger vets are playing could doom the Dodgers in 2013.

19 runs scored for Kershaw now in 8 starts.  

 

1.6 ERA, 0.9 WHIP, 56 K's, 3-2 record.  This is the kind of crap that will AGAIN make Kershaw miss out on the Cy Young.  The Dodgers are doing everything they can to ensure Koufax 2.0 bounces from LA the minute he's able to...

Holy [expletive], this is Lakers 2.0 lol

RT @ramonashelburne: Source tells ESPNLA that Dodgers management wants to see how team plays once somewhat healthy before thinking about any big changes

Yeah cause you plan on half of your rotation being injured.

Harang asked to be traded cause he didn't want to come out of the pen, that was the only guy they got rid of.

Scott Van Slyke will be called up today, hitting .397 with 9 HRs.  Less of Ethier I hope

I hope that doesn't mean Gonzo is headed to the DL.

He said he can play through it as long as he doesn't dive. A-Gon has been excellent with RISP we could use him as late inning PH. Time for Ethier to be platooned and Ramon Hernandez might get cut since Fed is up
