Remember when the moron let McGee sit in the corner of the BP most of Sept/Oct. He hardly used him for reasons unknown other than he knows nothing about pitching.

This isn't going to end well for the Dodgers this year. At this point, I really hope they don't trade away a stud in Ruiz for some band aid that won't fix this team. They can't even hold the jockstraps of the Giants or the Padres. It's a mental thing and this team is just not there. Both the Giants and the stupid Padres are focused and punishing teams while the Dodgers look like some sort of mental mess.

AF better not trade any blue chippers for either rentals or middle of the road players that will not move the needle.

Scherzer is basically a Yu Darvish part 2 feeling to me. A guy they would have to overpay for that won't end up moving the needle enough.

The other route that AF loves is the Danny Duffy route which is another high cost rental who they would be buying at the top of the market that's also already been on the DL twice with a shitty hip.

This just feels like it's going to end bad for us.

I couldn't watch the game after the fourth inning. Too many joke at bats. I gotta say I love my son's post this morning - Bellinger sucks f'ing ass!
The Boy was a total fanboy of Bellinger up until the past three weeks. Now, he would love to see him in any other uniform by Friday. He blames Bellinger becoming an assclown on his baby mama. His words.

Bellinger is entitled. So was Seager but Seager is more of a grinder. Any kid who grows up in a MLB player's shadow has had every type of advantage known to man from money to coaching to facilities not to mention they get genetics too which matter unless you are Pete Rose's kid.

Bellinger doesn't know how to grind. You look at him and the way he goes about his business and it's basically like a spoiled prick. When he talks, he sounds like Spicoli who just wiped out into the pier at Huntington Beach chasing a late afternoon swell and thinks it's way cool.

I feel bad that he has to go home and hang out with his cleat chaser gf who has been on more hotel pillows than a mint.

I'm convinced now that Cody isn't very smart after his comments last night on that play. HE SAID HE WOULD MAKE THE SAME PLAY AGAIN but a good throw. What? He had the runner dead to rights at 2B for a DP but chose that iffy play to 3B. Posey wasn't going anywhere. Dude is slow AF & was barely off the bag. No score happens if he completed the easy DP. Team is snakebit outside of excellent starting pitching & much improved RP.

I gotta wonder how his daddy raised him. His dad had a reputation of being a smart ballplayer with marginal skills. Bellinger is skilled but is more and more like a dumber version of Joc Pederson. I missed his comments last night, but it sounds like he honestly doesn't notice that he is quickly becoming a "What If" story. I am honestly hoping we cut ties with this fool sooner rather than later. RIght now, he has some value, if only for a team who thinks they can fix stupid. I just worry that he might infect the team with his latent entitlement and lack of brainpower.
