Thompson for three!
So glad to have baseball back too!
The youngins are certainly making a name for themselves out there. Outman plays with a passion that I just love to see, nothing that advanced stats can ever measure.
Pitching has been phenomenal overall right out of the gate, save for the usual hiccups here and there.
If Will Smith doesn’t make the all-star game yet again with his annual 130+ OPS+, I dunno what to tell ya.
All I know is if I am pitching for the Dodgers I want to pitch on the odd game days. I mean 30+ runs scored vs 2. That is crazy.
Heyward has been a very nice surprise. Will Smith may finish with 100 home runs at this pace. :Ellington On Fire:
I think the dodgers coaching really knows how to teach pitching and hitting. They don't just bring guys back and watch them do better they bring guys back and watch them excel. Heyward is making great contact with the ball. Im loving seeing the contact these guys are getting. Plus the patience of the two kids. Man those dudes have veteran presence at the plate. I do think the dodgers go the way Max Muncy goes though. He needs to find his simple stroke back and, for the love of good, stop missing the hoppers at 3rd.
Even sweeter it's against Kimbrel!
if you gonna get one its a good shot Kimbrel giving it up. That was a blast and an awesome way to sweep Trae Turner and his boys.
Max is the one, when he is hitting like himself, that will benefit most from the no shift rule. He laces shots into the gaps that the shift swallowed up for years. I see his On Base Percentage going way up if he is swinging like he has been lately
That hurt, big time. Great series, guys.
