Reds are a quality team...

this 3-1 series win means ALOT for the dodgers... they are serious contenders in the playoffs.


Reds have a lot of pop in that lineup. They can cause some damage at any point.

3 out of 4 against any team is impressive, but against a quality team like Cinci is definitely a great thing for this ball club.

Totally missed this. So bummed. Went into the other room for like 5 minutes and thought the reds were still up at bat.

The Snakes have to play some series' against Boston, TB, Pittsburgh and the Reds next month. We also have some challenging matchups against TB, St. Louis and maybe the Yankees...Need to gain more ground next month. Hopefully, lock the division up.

Crazy how we gained essentially 20 GAMES on the Giants in what? 5 weeks?

I really have to tip the cap to Capuano and League today. If Capuano can pitch like this, our SP essentially has no holes.

The whole offense needs to pick up thing doesn't make sense to me. Today was a terrible day but this was a series against a good Cinci team with a very good pitching staff.

It needs to pick up at home is what I meant. I realize the Reds are a quality opponent, but the offense just looks lackadaisical out there due to factors that are NOT the quality of our opponents. When we're on the road it seems like we are a free swinging ball club eager to get up to the plate and bat while at home we seem like we're more of a defensive team who lets their guard down a bit and wants to rely on our pitching and crowd to help us win. I don't like that approach. That's all I'm saying.

Really interested to see what the Dodgers are going to do at the deadline.  Although they seem content with their starting rotation, I will not be surprised to see them acquire another starter to really make that rotation complete.  

 

Someone like Jake Peavy would be awesome for this team.  He's a west coast guy and knows the NL West all too well. 

 

As far as position players go, I don't think they will go after a third baseman anymore, but if they do, you could see them get a player like Michael Young.   There's not much talent available at third and although I like Kyle Seager, the Mariners don't seem intent on selling despite them being out of the race. 

 

With that Cuban shortstop/second baseman, there are conflicting reports to whether he was signed or not, but if he does end up signing, he'll be up with our club by September. 

 

I expect all our outfielders to stay put for at least this season.  Kemp can't stay healthy and Crawford's health is still a question mark sometimes, so it doesn't make sense to trade Ethier, who has been our healthiest outfielder. 

 

And as far as our relief pitching goes, you'll see an arm added but question is if it will be via trade.  If the Dodgers go after a starter, you'll see Fife go to the bullpen as a long reliever, but even at that point, I think they could add a back of the bullpen guy.  Jansen seems to have taken the closer role permanently, so a veteran set up guy will be key.  

 

Peavy isn't a west coast guy, he's from Alabama...

 

I'd love to see the Dodgers acquire Peavy but I think the Braves are going to end up trading for him now that they lost Tim Hudson.  He'd probably be more comfortable playing there rather than LA also...

It's tough to score runs at Dodger Stadium, especially at night...

^ It's both at home and at night apparently. Home runs at Dodger Stadium I can understand but why they can't put up some more hits and a couple more runs I don't understand. Let me be clear I'm not saying they need to explode offensively every game like they did in the Toronto series. Just be a little more consistent with the offense at home

I know that he's from Alabama, but he owns a house here in So Cal (San Diego) which he has had since his days with the Madres.  He spends the off-season in California.

Some rumor tidbits before the deadline tomorrow:

 

• Dodgers-Angels: The Dodgers and Angels haven't made a trade in 20 years (since a Reggie Williams-for-Mike James swap in 1993). And that's the only deal those two teams have made since 1976. But sources indicate they had a mostly casual conversation about Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick this week. Kendrick -- who is signed through 2015 (for a total of $18.85 million) -- could interest the Dodgers as a second base option for down the road. But there were no indications that any deal was in the works, as of Tuesday morning.

 

TUESDAY, 10:17am: The Dodgers are now the front runner to sign Wilson, tweets Nightengale.

 

 

Don't see the Dodgers acquiring Kendrick, although that would be an nice pickup moving forward. 

 

Brian Wilson looks like he could be added to the bullpen for the stretch run.  If he's remotely close to what he was before surgery, it would be a nice pickup.  If the Dodgers are interested in him that means their scouts were impressed and I trust the Dodgers scouts over any other source when it comes to players.

@TBrownYahoo 1m
Brian Wilson has chosen to sign with Dodgers, according to source. Had three offers. Will start in minors.

 

Let's see how he does, could be a big help, and I expect him to be a better option than Marmol at the very least so we'll never him again  :laughing:

YES!!! I CALLED IT BABY A WHILE BACK HERE! GIVE ME CREDIT!!! WOOOO! WE GOT THE FREAK FOLKS! :rock:

 

Hope he does well and like you said WC, he can't be worse than Marmol we would hope even if he can't ever get back to his most dominant self.

Let's hope for a blue beard!

Also, if he were to ever reach closer status again, we could be hearing this classic:
