And it was......these losers are just that! The worst team in the history of baseball given the payroll. A SF win tonight should push us what 9.5 back? Yep its almost over....at least come July I can cancel my MLB. TV this year.
Some bright spots on an otherwise disappointing team. Puig! That guy has been great. Dee Gordon looks way better at 2B than SS and his speed is an absolute weapon. League. I thought that guy was toast.
It is a shame to waste such excellent starting pitching. First the bullpen was blowing games left and right, then the defense, now the offense just can't get anything going consistently with Hanley and Gonzalez way under-performing.
Now that Kemp's bat is starting to come to life a little bit, we may be in good shape.
The Dodgers would be well-served calling up Joc, then trading one or both of Ethier and Crawford for whatever RP, 3B, SS, 2B, or C depth they can get. Ethier and Crawford have contributed basically nothing so far, so losing them will not be a huge deal.
Our outfield should be Puig, Joc, and Van Slyke, with Kemp coming off the bench and making starts to give players rests. SVS should spell Gonzalez at 1B periodically to keep him fresh.
When Uribe returns, he'll be at 3B, with Turner as a utility backup.
Calling up Guerrero as soon as possible to get him acclimated would also be a good idea.
