well that is a positive and I am not concerned about a couple of losses. It seems like the last 3 years or so they have hit a down period sometime during the first month of play. I would feel better though if it didn't happen this year.

As I said in my last thread: they seem to do this every season, early. They start out with a bang, go throug a downer after a couple of weeks and then get their act together. When they stared losing to the Cards I could see the printing on the wall.

Sure hope they get their act together soon. I'm looking forward to seeing Kershaw pitch Monday night.

Kershaw gave a good performance last night and of course Puig hits a home run. I thought it was interesting some of the side notes about Puig and his attitude, he even showed up an hour late for the ring ceremony yesterday.


Good win, now to sweep the Reds!

They found a spot for him tonight: five-run lead, and he didn't blow it. He even lowered his ERA to 9.42.

Although the Dodgers lost to the Metropolitans, watching Will Smith's MLB debut was great. First MLB base it, first MLB extra bases hit, first MLB throw out a runner on second. Talk about a guy being on top of the world.

Another win for our boys: just wish we could see them play more often. We get them on TV maybe once every few weeks and then the games start so late for us, if they are on the west coast that I am asleep by the second inning it seems.

A tenet of Branch Rickey's GM philosophy was that it was always better to get rid of a player "..a year too soon rather than a year too late."

The current Dodger management is channeling Branch and perhaps going him one better because they managed to unload Puig and Kemp at exactly the right time. I could not figure out what the Reds wanted with either of these players, and they must now be wondering the same because:
Puig: .210/.258/.376
Kemp:.200/.210/.283

The guys the Dodgers got for those two, Jeter Downs (.256/.347/.416) and Josiah Gray (4-2 2.70) in a couple of years of A ball, may or may pan out, but Puig and Kemp are for certain liabilities with unjustifiably large salaries.

Well Puig's attitude is what got him gone. Management and players were tired of him. Happy to see him go. Dodgers seem to have really jelled this season as a team, fun to watch the games and sure hope they can keep this winning streak going.
