No coincidence that it happens with injuries.

All star break came at a great time.

Me with Cap. Definitely gained some more respect for him he made sure whoever wanted a picture with him got one, especially the little kids.

Pretty interesting first half.  Obviously injuries hurt this team but we got on a roll and find ourselves in second place.  

 

The Dodgers are far and away the most talented team in the division so I expect this team to runaway with the division in the second half if healthy

 

Our starting rotation will be there and I expect the bullpen to be upgraded at the deadline.    

 

We don't see any NL West teams until the very end of August and September will be against all of the NL West opponents & Cincinnati Reds.   September we have 16 road games and 11 home games so it will definitely be fun

 

Let's just hope the key players get healthy and we keep it going.  Also I would not be shocked to see a surprise trade for another bat to add into the lineup.  Uribe has been solid but if they have a shot to get a another big bat, they'll go for it.

Could you try and speculate what kinda names they could potentially be interested in if so?

One name to keep an eye on is Kyle Seager, 3B from Seattle. 

 

His younger brother Corey is already in the Dodgers minor league system is the future at 3B but can play other positions as well.

 

Kyle Seager is hitting .293 with 15 homeruns and 44 RBI's.  It might take giving up a couple top prospects but this move would not surprise me.

I'm not sure what it is about ESPN and their love of reporting on the struggles of teams in LA and/or players. 

 

I just watched 10 minutes of ESPN reporting on Puig's "struggles" and how they are trying to paint the picture that he is a flash in the pan without directly saying it.   Yet, they don't acknowledge the FACT that Puig has been playing with an injured hip since July 3rd.

 

At the time of that injury, he was batting .443 and after that he dipped to below .400.

 

But let's not acknowledge facts ESPN.  It's not just about adjustments, it's a combination of injury and pitchers throwing him differently.

Puig at the playboy mansion with Snoop & Chris Brown. What's lost in translation is found in being around beautiful Women. That's universal.

Incredible throw by Puig.  Umpire robbed him of web gem.  Harper was out.

Carl Crawford has been pretty bad ever since he came back. It's gonna be an awkward situation when Kemp comes back since Ethier has been in better rhythm. Tough luck.

Ethier with a game winning home run in the 9th inning WOAH. Where did this come from and how often does this happen? Lol its been years since hes been Captain Clutch

 

Puig nailed Harper, stupid ump.  Puig got taken out why I dont understand

 

Dominguez coming in and getting a double play was huge. Nolasco got into so many jams and somehow escaped with only 2 runs charged to him.  Good win we grinded this one out

 

Hope Greinke can put together another gem tomorrow.

Carl Crawford is due for at least a 2-4 game with a couple of RBI's.

Rooting for you against the Nationals to help my Braves.but real talk your Puig hot month is done. He's went from .415 to .381 in about 7 games he will finish the season at about .280-.290. Still great and the guy has a cannon for an arm. But he's not the new Joe DiMaggio like bspn kept saying. I know Dodger fans didn't buy the hype. That wasn't a fair comparison for a 30 game rookie anyways. Ya call someone DiMaggio after a month and all you can do after that peak is decline. Regardless he's gonna he a solid ball player. When he figure s out to stop stepping out of the box to pull everything and thus drop his hands the K's will go down to. All in time.
