Kelly just looks like a broken guy mentally. I am not sure that they can use this guy anywhere at this point. I think it's kind of an asshole move to leave that guy in there to give the game away when it was clear that he didn't have it. You don't help a guy that way. You just basically punish him and fuck him up even worse. It's a really piss-poor way to manage.

They panned over to Ausmus and he was almost smirking before the play. It was probably him saying "I can't believe how fucking stupid Roberts is."

This is pure comedy at this point Roberts is basically leaving Kelly in to destroy the guy now.
Every manager worth their salt can outmanage him unless the offense scores a million runs or the pitcher throws a shutout in 8/9 innings.

The real season is always going to be the playoffs with this team. It would take a meltdown of catastrophic proportions to change their position in the West.

I just want to get to the trade deadline to see how Friedman fixes the hole.

After the game presser by Roberts: "I liked the matchups. I saw some good things out there. Kelly is trending in the right direction."

Of course they would never ask Kike to bunt there. He had a nice super hard hit that amounts to nothing.

This game in general was such a horrible game by Roberts. This stubborn fuck should have had Kike bunt but no way. They only play for the HR or the big hit even though it hasn't been there all night. Get a feel for the game. Tighten it up, play small ball and grind out some runs.

The Dodgers have players who are starting to struggle offensively.

I hate to wish injury on any human but the very best thing for the Dodgers would be for Kelly to get on the 60 day DL. They won't just swallow his contract and he is actually worse than an empty roster spot.
