Both.   :laughing:

 

Lakers - Dwight, Nash, Kobe, Metta, Gasol, Hill

 

Dodgers - Kemp, Hanley, Crawford, Greinke, AJ Ellis, Mark Ellis

 

 

Plus more SMH 

...and the coaching of course as you sorta mentioned there in your previous post on both fronts.

^ Just one game closer to getting over 500. So close, but yet so far. Baby steps.

Back-to-back wins for the Dodgers and back-to-back games with a home run each for Gonzo & H-Ram.

 

Puig cooling down a bit the last few games, but it was to be expected at some point. Hasn't been much though so way too early to even be remotely worried.

 

Meanwhile, Kemp went 0-5, 4K's in a triple A game.

Sounds like he'll fit right back into this lineup. Just bat Cruz in front of him and no one will notice

Puig has put the team on his back and helping us win games. Keep it going. And our pitching has been better co incidentally

a) I think this should be lineup when Kemp returns this week

Kemp
Puig
Gonzalez
Hanley
Uribe
Ethier
Mark Ellis
AJ Ellis
Pitcher

Kemp has been sorry in driving runners in going back to midway last year (Even before shoulder injury) until he can show hes reliable in getting hits with RISP I think I wouldn't give him that responsibility, Id make him bat leadoff where he wont be under much pressure and this mental midget can just relax at the plate

b) When Crawford comes back obviously Kemp needs to be bumped down

Crawford
Puig
Gonzalez
Hanley
Kemp
Uribe
Mark Ellis
AJ Ellis
Pitcher

I think we can survive Kemp's incompetence at the 5 spot because the 4 hitters ahead of him are very very productive

What do you guys think? What lineups would you trot out?

Fife has done a very solid job filling in for him. I hope Fife remains in the rotation and can help us out with long relief out of the bullpen if we make playoffs

Just read on fox sports that the Dodgers have looking for pitching and have been talking about Ricky Nolasco (Marlins) and Matt Garza (Cubs).

 

I think the biggest issue with the staff is that we keep rotating our 4th and 5th starters and can't find a solid, consistent starter.  Nolasco is an innings eater which would help take pressure off our bullpen and Garza is just a solid pitcher.  His ERA is at 4 this year but he would be better than any of our 4th or 5th guys that we have used. 

 

We REALLY NEED another bullpen arm though.  

 

As for Kemp, I'm excited about his return.  With the emergence of Puig, it should take the pressure off Kemp and he can just play baseball instead of having all the pressure on his shoulders.  Gonzalez/Ramirez/Puig/Kemp is pretty solid but we need other guys to step up.  Hopefully we can also get a quality third baseman that is consistent at the plate.

I cant get home fast enough...I havent felt this since like 2003 when Kobe went on that insane streak of 9 straight 40 point games and 16 straight 30 point games.

 

 Voted for Puig hope he somehow makes the all star game

Kemp is back.  Check out the lineup:

 

M Ellis 2B
Puig LF
Gonzalez 1B
Ramirez SS
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Federowicz C
Punto 3B
Fife P
 
 
Before the season, 2 through 5 would have been seen as one of the scariest lineups in the league. Unfortunately, it has not panned out that way.  Let's hope Kemp can get back on track.
