Thank you. Okay.
And welcome to the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
My name is Doug McCain.
You can follow me at D.
Mac. Underscore Lee.
Mac underscore l. A tough game.
Tough Siri's for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who now falling 86 46 78 all time in the regular season against the New York Yankees home record jobs of 52 8 18 And this homestand they thought they finished four into.
So when you look at it for, Auntie would take that.
But there's a lot to take away from this series, and we're gonna break it all down.
But welcome in to the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
Thanks for joining us after a tough loss in a tough Siri's, but we're gonna be breaking all the way down and everything.
It really transpired some of the takeaways that you can take from this Siri's, but before we get things kicked up.
First of all, which guys have smashed that matched that hard but for Max Muncey's birthday today and also read sweet and share the show, but without further doing it right into your comments, a lot to get into on this Dodgers Nation postgame show.
But thanks for rocking with us.
Let's get into these comments de nos 51 50.
Screw this B s and let it all out. Let it all out.
We always were gonna bleed Dodger Blue till the day we die.
We love our Dodger baseball.
But this was frustrated.
You have the right to be frustrated.
Use this as a as a as a catharsis.
Let it all out right here.
No issues with it.
Give me all your Dodger taste.
How did you feel? What is your your one word reaction to this series of the Dodgers? Drop it! We'll lose two out of three games of the Yankees and we're gonna talk about why and what the daughters need to dio and all that great stuff.
Here we go at Havana.
What the hell, Danny, What a job.
We're not winning nothing this year.
Taylor spent the offense has been terrible the past five games.
Great, Great point in the offense today they couldn't most are more than a run.
John Peterson home run off the first pitch and the Dodger offense.
They were not really doing what's gotten in there, what the difference in this Dodger team has been their ability to sit back at bats and take pitches and work pitch counts.
This today you had John Pearson got that lead off home run on that first pitch, but today you have eight Dodgers that swung and hit on the first pitch.
Seven of those eight pitches were out with one was a home run.
So the formula that has worked for Robert Vance quick and this Dodger team it's not, did not did not helpline this.
The daughters need to go back to school and really get to what's been going really starts surprising those fundamentals that has made this a more dynamic offense because today they just did not get it done.
That offense was colder than a cu***ber out there, and no one you had one for seven with runners in scoring position, and Cody Bellinger had a rough Siri's.
He had another another tough day.
Corey Seager took 55 pitches total for Cory CR today, so the approach by this Dodger lineup was not very good.
You had German, you had packs it on Friday, pitchers and see sees about yesterday pictures that if you look at their e r A.
That is there week, league of their teams, their starting pitching and the Dodgers had a difficult to get into the starting pitchers that they face from the New York Yankees.
But here we go, say, and if you look at the offense, since in August, they're averaging 5.
8 runs per game.
See this? Ah, this month, 44 home runs for the Dodgers.
This month, they're on pace.
Toe hit, more home runs. This month.
They have all year.
They had 47 back in June, but that those Bronx Bronx Bombers, the Bronx Bombers, really lived up to their billing today because they were hit him out.
And other than other than that, Ford hit that judge hit on on Friday.
Most there runs coming from the long ball, and that's really more of the state of the major league baseball right now.
Home runs just flying out at a record pace, But let's get into these takes.
Give me your thoughts, comments and questions about your boys in blue were do some rapid If I'm gonna read off your takes.
But welcome in look.
Siri's lots to get into lots to address with this.
Siri's 100 were you gives up three home runs.
Does he need rest of 100 re you? He hasn't pitched more 100 on pace to pitch more than 100 92 innings.
2013 is Are they going to start getting him some additional rest? He didn't look himself.
He was not that.
20130.85 e r. Ran home hunting.
Rie you that we've seen all year that Ray went from 164 to 2, then Saturday couldn't get a thing going offensively.
The Kenley Jansen inning was a meth.
Give was a mess.
Give Kenley credit for stepping up and gutting out that performance.
But really, this weekend was not, though.
If this was the measuring stick weekend, the Dodgers came up sore than Napoleon at Waterloo.
I mean, they just did not show up and from offensively, and it was very disappointed.
No, you guys disappointed, and we've seen them break a lot of habits this year that cost him in years past.
But this weekend, the Dodgers really a disappointing season.
Siri's But the reality of this, the positive spin, if you look at it.
They went to inform this road trip so far this week, they got swept by the A's.
The Dodgers, they go for into all winds, are the same as Faras.
The standings go.
So the Dodgers still on top of the Yankees and right now, 86 46 they're still on pays toe.
Probably have an historic season and, more importantly, get that home field advantage come October. So here we go.
Jay Jay Hubbard.
We win Doug Crosby.
What I've dug rubbing from East Lansing, Michigan, five runs.
The entire Siri's disappointing.
You said it right there.
He's always rocking with us.
One of the day ones here on the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
But, yeah, five runs this season, and they have been raking on it.
They've just been raking night in, and I doubt the Dodgers are they hit a home run.
Usually they hit a home run and their seven.
Now there's 73 29 when they've hit a home run this year.
This year they were 13 and 17 heading tonight without hitting home runs, so usually that's the recipe for success.
But this is an elite club.
This is a team in the New York Yankees.
They have firepower.
They have no easy outs from one through a and this Dodger lineup.
In this, this pitching staff you saw Clayton Kershaw give Clayton Kershaw Ah, lot of credit tonight.
He was striking out guys utilizing his fastball to get strikeouts, but that home run ball was rearing its ugly head.
We're gonna break down the game in just a second.
But like I said, how did you feel about this? Siri's? What do you think is the most important thing the Dodgers learn from this series? Was it their lack of offense was the way they struggled.
Five runs in three games tonight, one for seven with runners in scoring position.
It's ambushing pitches too early in the count.
Not and not really hitting pitches that a great hitter pitches to hit.
So was it the often struggling? Was it the fact that they're going deep on Kershaw? Look, the fact that they get home runs off Kershaw.
The fact that they were going yard on curse isn't a surprise to anyone that's been following this team, but it is a surprise that was off the curveball.
The curveball has only been hit out going 12 times now.
So going into tonight, it only had 10 bombs off his curveball.
And you could name it with what we guys off the.
It just it was just Ah, here we go.
Siri's don't get all your comments in your guys. So just sit back.
Settle into the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
I want to get your taste What your thoughts are on this weekend.
Siri's against the pants drives.
How'd you feel about those you guys blamed on the uniforms? Was it though? Those terrible, horrific uniforms I have to believe that it paid Played a part of this point.
Pat Mattson Sager, Bellenger, Muncie. Gone missing.
Make Guillory completely dominated.
Mustered up three home runs.
Reuben Marina, Santa Maria, 805 By the way.
Drop your city zip code area code.
I got a big bag of shout outs right here, so let me know where you're watching the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
Tough loss. Okay, Tough loss.
A lot to unpack here But here we are, Jonathan, and there's your 2019 World Series champions.
Kip Szabo can't plan the guys.
I'm not totally sold on this on this Yankees team quite yet, but they were impressive.
Their ability Teoh e me.
They're just They have so much firepower.
They have so much firepower and you go into it.
The Yankees have the 19 best starting staff in baseball, and that was supposed to be their weak leaks are going in.
I thought the Dodgers were gonna stack runs early, and then when that bullpen comes around, have a little bit of a cushion toe work with.
But it wasn't the case.
Passing basically pitched the game, his night life.
And then today you gotta give your mind some credit.
He was working it.
We're going tonight.
Is throwing that getting strikeouts with that changeup, he leads the league and run support.
Let's get let's get, let's get here.
Try needing money to score more on Salamone.
Um, Pat Mats in a BP for for balancing a PB Phil Hamilton.
The Dodgers beat them when it count.
The Dodgers still beat them when it counts.
Don't ever talk about the 1981 world Siris, or what the Dodgers will do.
Worry about our offense from 213 Daniel Moreno.
Let's say to say hello to another World Series loss from Ryan German.
Our monster Yankees came with the full force and got to us.
Our boys, Ito wake up as they as their fall classic opponent.
Look a reality check.
Also, we don't have.
We don't have Alex for Do go back.
We don't have Alex for Do go back.
He's a guy who I was thinking, Hey, I was giving Getting a lot of those feels like I was watching the 2018 world Siris against the Red Sox and that Syria's the Dodgers had issues putting the bomb play.
They did not look like a dynamic offense.
Their plate of their approach at the plate was was not as dynamic as we've seen.
Two outs and runners in scoring position.
They weren't taking advantage.
Those Alex Verdugo.
We need him back.
We need guys that they can really put the ball in play and start to get hits.
Austin Barnes hits a double tonight.
You have doubles tonight.
Um, ct three got one.
Hard to watch from tent Soto.
Yeah, does this There's a question for you guys.
Does this Siri's change your world Siris prediction as Faras, the daughter's opponent for the last couple of months? Ah, lot of were a lot of you out there have been very high on the Astros.
Are you sold on the Yankees now? No mofo mo frustrated Martin's smell.
Only five runs, three games, Jack 702 Vega's.
This is a learning experience.
Better get those losses in the regular season.
That's what I'm saying. These losses are the same. Ray.
As usual, Despite the loss in the series, I still got a six my World Series.
Those aren't the Padres.
If you can't get up for this, Siri's, you have zero business playing.
You get punched in the mouth.
The Dodgers definitely did get punched in the mouth, and a lot of the issues that have plagued this team definitely reared its ugly head, starting with Clayton Kershaw giving up home runs.
If you look at clean Kershaw, it's he's thrown over fourth over 4000 curveballs.
Basically, only 12 them have been hit out of the park.
You bounce something.
Didn't have the command on his curveball that we usually see.
He did settle down, had had 11 strikeouts in the game and a lot more on fastballs, Which is a good sign.
But it's the first inning for Clayton Kershaw.
The first inning.
The first inning woes really continue for Clayton Kershaw.
If you look at his e r A.
In the first this year, Clayton Kershaw, his first inning IRA sits at 573 Then that drops the 123 in the 2nd 368 the 3rd 4th and then 164 in the fifth and a little over two in the six.
So the disparity in that first inning E r A ages balloons, it just it goes.
It goes all the way down to 123 in the second, so he's got to come out.
You know, guys are gonna ambush that first pitch second pitch and we saw it tonight with the Yankees and clean.
Kershaw gives up, gives up a couple dingers, gives up three shots today and like assess that first inning, so he's got to settle down.
I'm not starting to say we should have an opener for Clayton Kershaw.
I'm not tryingto bring that madness in here, but he's got to be cognizant off that first inning guys are gonna come out.
But here we go. Tina Ji min.
Relief pitching wasn't you guys.
You're lighting these comments up, so keep wrong with them to get as many as I can.
Let it all out, though, because the everyone can read it to see you're saying, Problem is, I don't feel good about starting pitching.
Villar disappoint. The offense was dead. Horrible.
Um, Andy, we'll never win a World Series TV contract.
Take. That's a hot take.
I still believe the Dodgers.
I still believe that this series could culminate in a World Series championship.
I'm not taking that.
I'm not being that dramatic from this Siri's.
But there are some issues that need to be worked out, and one of them is the offense definitely spun.
Earthy offense sputtered in a major way in this series.
One run tonight, one run, five runs total, so the Dodgers bats Felix says the Dodger bass took this.
Siri's off disappoint is this.
Siri's was the most anticipated Siri's in major league baseball this whole entire season, and the daughters had a chance to really make a statement.
They made a statement against the Red Sox.
They could have made another statement to the American League that they we have closed the gap on the American League.
We have the offense, we have the pitching.
But they did not capitalize.
And the daughter's really have to go back to the drawing board as far as offensively, because that wasn't look at that thing about what the doctors were able to dio against these starters.
OK, you throughout, Verlander, you throw out, you throw Cole, you throw a Greinke.
We've had great success against Greinke, but hey, the Dodgers, that's not gonna be the best starting staff.
There's in there, and Tanaka and Ceferino aren't even right.
Kershaw, 12 can no run support, and Kershaw, that has been something that he's benefited from this year.
This year, Clayton Kershaw has gotten the run support.
He's also dominated at home.
Clayton Kershaw, nine, and Owen, home since and since the All Star break at home, he was six to know within the area of 184 and 20.
It's so clean. Kershaw.
If you look at it at home, he's been doing it.
He's also done historically against an early competition.
He's won 11 consecutive in early decisions, and that was tied with Kenny Rogers for the longest streak ever.
But tonight wasn't enough.
Really a Ah, very respectable solid performs from Clayton Kershaw, who did not get the run support.
But here we go. Let's get in there. We got Marco.
We could have have easily been swept.
Dodgers 3 to 3 pitching.
We need lefties Hale and Oreos.
That's nothing to Julio or is still experiencing that.
That that suspension, but who? Your E s is not a batter.
He can hit for a picture, but he is not in the box, and he's not responsible for get the Dodgers runs on offense.
So I agree with you on that.
But Andrew I wanted the exam thing.
Johnson was, but yet give Gonsouland a lot of credit.
Gonsouland was one of the bright spots off this weekend, so let's let's flip this.
Ah, you know, let's spend this positive.
It wasn't all bad.
And Tony Johnson? It looks like the Dodgers have a dog or actually a cat.
And Tony Gonzalez.
If you look at his success, the way the effectiveness of his change up, he's just got that that poise out there.
This guy, he's got that feel, that poise and he doesn't look like he's intimidated at all.
And he was intimidated by this Yankee line of yesterday, and he was.
They start to get him a little bit.
The fans started, hit him hard, but he's building momentum with each and every start.
And Tony, godson, I think, is gonna be a great asset coming out of the pen.
So this is not gonna be the same Dodger team right now.
As you're going to see in October. I think they'll move.
Gone sailing to the pen or yes, there will be back.
Can't will be in the pen.
I think Rich Hill is my guy as far as the fourth starter right now, Zed James.
I need a Popeyes chicken sandwich after that mass.
Mama had said James A cheer yourself up. Kowtow, actually.
If you want to sponsor the show that we're looking for sponsors.
So then I'll then I'll plug your sandwich.
Don't think you need very much help for me.
Don't worry, you guys.
We can still blow the Marlins.
65 Randall average Cody Bellinger looks uncomfortable at the plate.
He's really getting underneath stuff.
He's and Cody Bellinger.
If you look at Cody Bellenger, he really is a guy that we need to get hot.
We need to get hot for way.
We're not gonna coast through the NL without Cody Bellinger finding his groove again because Cody Bellinger tonight we got yet a walk at a ground outlasts last 30 games for Cody Bellinger is hitting 2 53 8 home runs and in this series did not really show up in a Hey, you're on ESPN.
You're going against the New York Yankees.
Cody Bellinger had a chance to really make a statement.
Say, Hey, that's my M V P Trophy.
But instead it was all about Aaron Judge and and they ran that so Cody Bellinger.
A missed opportunity, selfishly, as far as the EVP goes.
But more importantly for the Dodgers, it just is really leading to this.
This Ah, this offense they need more from from Cody Bellinger.
They need Cody Bellinger to be that guy that he was before The All Star break is hitting his.
His average is starting to dip near 300 last seven for Cody Bellinger to 26.
And I just want to see I just want to see Cody Bellenger.
If you look the way he's swinging a lot of those swings, he's underneath the ball.
He's got to keep that in the zone and start getting back to those great habits that got him as the front.
Marge, the F the M V P right now.
Let's not forget the Yankee starting pitching has been terrible.
This was only one good Siri's great point.
These games just give them or information for the scouting report.
Loves matches the Dodgers sl Numata.
You know I like it.
Dodgers still number one in all of our hearts.
We just got to take this one on the chin.
Go back to the rock to the, uh, to the drawing board.
Hey, We'll take this out.
We'll take this.
L will go back and we are gonna do some refining.
We'll do some refining with the hitters.
Well, our approach at the plate and Hun Jin Ryu We know that that wasn't the Hun Jin Ryu that's gonna be a Cy Young winner later this year.
We got school, Doug.
Slam dunk from dens are so disappointed.
Five runs of three games.
Kirsten 12 K's no support.
Come on, guys. Kiddos the Yankees.
Kudos to the 80 kiddo, they're good.
****, arson, Even if that, um, if the Astros start Ah, um, if the Astros get the home field into the A l, we will have in the n a a in the n o as long the season the Astros and will be an epic clash once again, that's a great point.
Look, if you look at the home field advantage, if you look at the home field advantage, the reality is it does mean something.
Home teams have enjoyed the most success in Game one of the world, Siris, having won 15 having there with a record of 59 34 since 1925.
But the Dodgers and the three the daughters are all time three and seven against the New York Yankees.
In those three Siri's they've got on the road.
So they've got on the road.
They they won Game six on the road in Yankee Stadium and nights.
Anyone that won that game 92.
So I'm not totally afraid of having to go on the road, per se.
It was just more of the fact that the Dodgers has felt outmatched.
The Dodgers felt out match from that potent Yankee lineup, and they're gonna have to make some adjustments.
Really, The hitting was one of the biggest takeaways.
The hitting in the or lack thereof was was that case.
Albeit they don't have Alex Verdugo.
You're going to get David freeze back.
You're gonna have a J.
Pollock hopefully will get healthier.
And hopefully we need Cody Bellinger to round back in the form.
We need Cody Bellinger to get back at it.
Even Max Muncy. Max Muncy. Last seven.
He's hitting 2 14 and he was one for two, it one for seven in the 1st 2 games that Dodgers the meat of the Dodgers lineup did not show up in this series, and that's just the reality.
And the Dodgers other than Justin Turner yesterday, the Dodgers just have not gotten it done.
Five runs in three games from an offense that was giving you 5.
8 runs per game in the months that month of August. But here we go.
What do you guys think is your biggest concern with this team right now? After this, Siri's what you think is the biggest concern with the Dodgers.
Because look, Kenley Jansen.
We could talk about Kenley Jansen, and you got a couple breaks late in that in that game.
But him hitting 96.
That was encouraging that that that with that, Ah, that that cutter to ah, to Sanchez and Todman.
Those were two of the best cutters I've seen him throw in months, so that could be encouraging.
As far as Candy Jansen's concern.
Houston has the better rotation.
The Yankees Roman, a little worried.
Siri's been earlier in the season, that I wouldn't be Godfrey Raise just shows that the offense is really hit or miss.
The Yankees have horrible starting pitching, and they show the daughter's check.
Crow are are Jen.
Um, here you has it lighted up. That's what I'm talking about.
Hey, I'm glad we could help.
Glad Dodgers Nation could provide a spot for you guys.
Let it all out because, look, we still have 11 games to get in October.
We still have a long post season ahead of us.
The Dodgers could be the one of the earliest clinching teams in history.
So it was tough.
It was a tough Siri's.
I'm not going to say that everything is fine.
Everything is not fine.
Not going to that dog with the Fire look, Everything is not fine.
The daughters have to address some issues, but Steve Graves? No offense, Tina.
Men sometimes need to be humbled.
Let's get it together.
Pat Mattson still waiting for daughter to show up against the Yanks.
Steven from the 92346 K offense was horrible.
Mike Misty Vidal, Dodgers choke.
Can't be good teams.
Kershaw giving up home runs and Cody back to his playoffs.
Look, the Dodgers, they did.
They beat the Red Sox after the after World Series, the daughters have fared well against elite competition This year, they won the series against the Cubs. They want the Cardinals.
They beat the Cardinals so I wouldn't go that far.
This Siri's Timmy doesn't reflect how, like how great the daughters could be this season is.
It was was not Peek Dodgers off course by any stretch.
But, um, it wasn't pretty, was not pretty.
You had just the buildup for this.
Siri's the buildup for this Siri's.
I went to the game Friday, the atmosphere there.
It felt like a playoff series.
You're locked into each and every pitch, but the Dodgers just did not.
They just did not match the electricity of that Yankee lineup in the Yankees.
Coming off a sweep, the Yankees limped into this.
Siri's getting swept on the A's.
But here you know Kevin Durant were trash players Weekend.
Caleb, wanna park no medals.
9 to 675 Cathy Tripp.
Why ks from the 602 hung you up? Let's hope the Yankees will not you guys.
Somebody comes to turn me into an auction air guy.
We have read this fast, but Johnny can't win.
If you don't score runs All those fellas in the office.
Jordan First. Jenny's.
Yup, we are done.
I would disagree.
Duke San Antonio, Texas Frank Ryan. Ana Montes.
Yeah, but the bats were asleep.
Andrew, How about Bellenger? Stops show and okay, stop showing up at the entire city.
Quit hitting for the dam fans.
Bellenger and just go get on base.
Cody Bellinger did make a great play defensively yesterday, but like I was saying about Cody Bellinger, he's a guy that they, his pitch selection definitely could improve.
Your definitely I'm completely.
I completely echo those sentiments right there.
He definitely could improve from that standpoint, but really, it's a swing.
Just Ah, is not.
He's not just getting to every pitch like he was and getting to every pitch in every quadrant of the strike zone like he was because look, if you look at Cody Bellinger splits earlier in the year, it wasn't a lefty righty issue, but Cody Bellinger really needs to get hot.
He's got to get back into that groove.
This team needs it, and I trust Cody Bellinger.
He's a guy who has had a dip and he's proven that he can make adjustments.
And I think you're gonna see that again.
Here we go. No mo foam. Oyama.
Ah, no **** Yankees could only hit home runs.
Look, if you look at the Yankees, look, the Yankees, I believe 59 home runs this month.
That's an all time record.
The Bronx Bombers lived up to their billing in this series, and the Dodgers need Thio Neto really go back to the drawing board with their approach if they're gonna face this team again, because it will be the death now the Dodgers will lose the New York Yankees if their offense won't match them.
The thing about the 2017 Siri's, we're still giving a bombs, but our offense showed up against the Astros hero Paul from the Union City.
Um, Isaiah out managed, as usual, Cursi Becker's Yankees are dangerous, but the Dodgers had an off game left on base.
Yankees don't have no pitching till Yankees play against the Dodgers.
Look at the the Dodgers definitely made.
They made packs and look like an ace on Friday.
They made German looked like looked like he earned those 17 wins this season, but today you're right.
The Dodgers, if you look at it Friday 12 12 strikeouts yesterday.
15 strikeouts on Friday night's game.
So, really, to me, it's the strikeouts for the Dodgers today.
You had guys ambushing first pitches.
You didn't have guys waiting and sitting back.
This team's confidence this season has been we're gonna get to you the 2nd 3rd at bat, and by by that time we've worked to count up, we're running it, running you up in pitch count.
And then we're looking for pitches to drive and ones that we can attack.
And that wasn't the case in this series.
So give Clayton Kershaw credit.
He battled tonight, get 12 strikeouts for Clayton Kershaw.
And, if you look at him a season high with Swing and Miss Total today.
So Clayton Kershaw, he did give up those bombs.
That's an issue.
There's no question about it, but he did show some some great strikeout ability, and that's that's what you get out of Clayton Kershaw.
He did not get the run support that we're used to seeing with Clayton Kershaw, but But if you look at it, too, if you look at if you look at Britain If you look at Britain, he comes in and he comes in.
Five pitches for Britain.
Bellenger, Ooo three.
Bottom of the 8th 1st pitch.
One out, Okay, comes in one pitch.
Ground up for Cody Bell.
You've got to take a pitch, especially if you're trying to mount a comeback and try to get a rally together.
But the Bronx Bombers, the daughters can overcome this.
The Dodgers can and will overcome this.
I'm not worried about that.
How do you guys feel about your Dodgers right now? What do you think is the biggest issue? Is it paging? Is it hitting? And, um, how, how important? Think this serious doing this? Siri's means anything.
Do you think this Siri's means anything? If these two teams face off again in the fall Classic, Me Personally is a Serie.
At the end of the day, you have the Yankees and the Dodgers, the two most storied franchises in Major League baseball.
At the end of the day, it's a series in August, and the Dodgers finished the week four and two, and they're still they still have the best record in major league baseball.
But here we go Marie.
It was the white uniform.
Stephen, that's what At least at least that was the last.
We're gonna see that uniform today.
By the way, Steven Dodgers fail against Atlanta and New York. They did not do.
And in that something 200 were you.
He gives up back to back home runs in that Siri's and 100.
Were you? You have to wonder.
Is 100? Were you a little bit? Is he a little bit? Is he starting at least started run out of gas? And does he need a little bit of a break? This 100 were you? You know, they're flirting with managing his innings, and he's thrown 152 and 2/3 innings, which that's already already gone.
Passes his Ah, his second year and the second most innings he's pitched in in one season.
So his rookie year he pitched 1 92 and and, uh, after after pitching 213 and 2/3 innings over the last three seasons combined.
So you had the growing.
He had the shoulder 213 and 2/3 innings.
He's already have toe 1 52 I really think they need to manage his innings throat.
And maybe Ross Stripling comes back.
Rich Hill will be back in early September. Hopefully.
So we're going to see what they're gonna do with Hon Gin re you? He put him on the IO.
Maybe that was a phantom of his neck.
We got Charles Hammell.
Verdugo is a major factor.
He energized the team that something to the intangible of Mister Mister were nasty.
Okay, don't let the kid get hot.
He brings so much of this team.
And But look, the daughters are mature team.
The daughters don't need ****ogs Verdugo to come and energize the team.
They know what they need to do to be effective in to get wins.
But I just want to see him at the plate again because he is one of the most disciplined hitters on the Dodgers.
And he's a guy who has one of the best contact rates with his bath through the zone.
So Johnny Sable Gavin luck should come up to help the offense.
There's ah, he's been bawling at Gavin Lux.
He'll come up. Randall windows.
When is when is Verdugo return? If you saw on his Instagram.
Actually, if you check out real fr G's Twitter, he posted a video of Alex Verdugo of Alex Verdugo taking swings at Camelback Ranch.
So that was very encouraging.
And, ah, we're gonna fix this.
So for Alex Verdugo to get back, they're gonna need They're gonna want that.
And he's progressing. He's progress.
If you go to Dodgers nation dot com Alex Verdugo.
He is, um he is, um, he's getting, He's getting his way, he's making his way back.
And, yeah, I could say, Go check out the real FRG, the host of the Blue Heaven podcast and, um, if you look at him 12 the year he's in close to 2 300 slashing 2 94 3 42 and 4 75 12 Hormones of 44 r B I's, but he's the one constant up there.
He's a guy I don't like seeing get platooned and also defensively 14 defensive runs saved really has some of the best U Z score metrics in center field.
And if you look at men Jack Peterson, look.
Jack Peterson, 1 75 against lefties, four extra bait now five extra base hits in his last 78 at bats.
So to me, I think you got a platoon jock straight up and certain situations.
He could give you some pop and give you a home run every now and then.
We got Travis Astros scare me. More of the Yankees.
Perez Yankees did this without Stan, Um, Severina.
Yeah, and you are and carnation on Bird and Void.
Yes, that's somebody.
The Yankees have have really dealt with a slew of injuries, a historical amount of injuries for the New York Yankees that season.
In fact, the Yankees this year.
If you look at it, they have over how many guys that they had like like 34 31 different players injured for the New York Yankees, 2102 days miss most in Major league baseball.
And he also have $67.
6 million on that I l.
So they are gonna get better.
The New York Yankees definitely have a juggernaut on their hands. That's just the reality.
But we have to accept that and not run away from it.
That Dodgers have the requisite talent to beat a team like the New York Yankees, and it starts with starting pitching.
So that was really the big takeaway, was that they got to re you, but that wasn't the real you.
That's not the best version over you.
That is delighted Dodger fans all season long that had a 0.
Heading into today's game.
But let's break down this game a little or actually get back to your comments, guys.
Dodgers dropped the Siri's.
They dropped the Siri's to the New York Yankees, but that is only the 10th Siri's laws for the Dodgers this season.
They're 29 10 and four in this this season, and they're probably gonna most likely gonna have the best mark in the franchise history.
So 2017 they went 32 18 4 So let's not forget we're talking about a great Dodger team.
There's no question about this is a great Dodger team.
The record shows it the run differential shows Don't forget.
The daughters have a plus 70 ah plus 64 run differential, and they've also given up 100 and 70 169 less runs than New York Yankees.
So if you look at those metrics the Dodgers, everything points to them being elite club.
But there are some concerns.
The offense today, if the offense does not prove that that they can be taken to handle a handle a Yankee team at home that I don't I don't know what to think.
Come October because look, we thought that this is a team that on a baseline level can get you 2345 runs.
They've averaged 5.
8 since the All Star break.
The Yankees can hit any of our relievers and we can't and we could touch.
There's Shawn Morris.
Um ah, Mr ****ects.
Try to hit home runs and then play smart three straight, three years straight.
The pitching staff needs an overhaul.
I think that when you think about when you're too, when you're two starting pitchers, two of the three are guys 32 that and you have the velocity decline off Clayton Kershaw, 100.
Were you? We'll see if he re ups, that's that's a fair point, but that's why getting getting to this team, getting a World Series championship and getting a crown is of vital importance.
So I got to get one of these T shirts, go to Dodgers nation dot com, get one of these T shirts and, ah, there's my favorite.
Want enough? About 88.
The time is now.
That time is now for the Dodgers.
We don't want extended to 32 years.
We want a World Series championship base, Syria.
We wantto pop bottles and see champagne all over Figueroa.
But, ah, there's a lot of work ahead of us and the Dodgers.
They may have need a serious like this.
The Dodgers have been role in four weeks. The Dodgers.
If you look at the Dodgers heading into today, the Dodgers, they've They've won nine of the last 13 and route to the best back record in major league baseball.
Nine other last 13 that daughters have been coasting.
They had had a rough trip where they lost to Ah, they dropped one of Miami.
They lost to the Braves, but the Dodgers? Now this refocuses a Dodger team that has a lot of decisions to make.
They have to come to grips with their rotation.
They have to really start balancing out their bullpen.
And then offensively, we're gonna see who can produce who can get hot come October.
And these guys have a lots of lots of work for and a lot of competition amongst themselves as we inch closer the postseason.
David Max Mosley, the guru of the routine error.
Yeah, tonight the daughters had improved up.
They had cleaned up that that's sloppy defense, but they let a couple get away today.
And one that with the map baby related to run with Jason McClure.
Yanks stuck to their game plan and we're selective at the plate.
Ah, the Dodgers play like that.
They had something to prove and chase over. Swung it.
Gotta tip your hat to the younger team, playing like veterans.
Jason McClure is one of our esteemed writers here.
Go read all of his pieces.
You're not doing Dodger baseball, right? If you're not reading all the pieces at Dodgers nation dot com.
Pat, we got we got Let's go up here.
You get somebody once.
Bet Sean, Everyone, calm down.
The daughters will be fine.
Look, the sky is not falling like I'm holding the sky of right now.
The sky is not following.
And if they think this is going to refocus the Dodger team, they came into this series.
They had won nine of the last 13 come off a sweep of the Blue Jays.
If you look at the comebacks, the Dodger comebacks this year, it's nothing short of historical.
They are heading into this.
Siri's was an aberration, that they weren't as clutch, but they've had 23 home games this year where they were trailing in the ninth or later, and they've won seven of those games.
No MLB team in the live ball here since 1920 has won at least 30% of their home games.
That's from stats, and so 12 walk off wins for the Dodgers this year, so the daughters are clutched are a clutch group.
But this Siri's I'm telling you, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Leaves a bad taste in your mouth, fromthe losses to the hideous uniforms Friday, having to battle out with Yankee fans for Let's go Dodgers.
Let's go Yankees.
Enough of that and the Dodgers will get back to square one and there starts squaring it up at the plate, but out of it, a Buffalo Bills of baseball.
Okay, I don't think that I don't think that I still think, uh, the Buffalo Bills in the nineties, they drop, They lost four straight syllables.
I like my chances with this group.
Tina, Gina re you and Kershaw give him home runs.
Makes it hard to stay in a game.
So we Clayton Kershaw, the home runs.
If you look at it, you want to eat? Look, you know, he's gonna get one bomb, you know? You know, he's gonna give a bomb.
It's just today.
It was the curve ball.
It was the fact that they got to his curveball.
And also he's at home, but he bounced back, gave you 12 strikeouts, got zero run support.
And if you look at Clayton Kershaw, he was averaging 77 a half runs per game.
Tonight, the Dodgers give them easily run off a jock Peterson leadoff home run.
And And you're right, though.
The way they teed off on him was definitely definitely concerning Aaron Judge.
By the way, how many times did they have to show Aaron Judge's home run tonight.
I mean, they were just You could just tell the ESPN put, uh, producers were just jumping for joy because I don't think I think we saw John Peterson.
I don't think we even saw a replay of it.
And they played his like 15,000 times.
But Miro, they need hits.
Enrique Martinez, Can we finalize a lineup for once? Channel Nicer.
Doug, I bought the same one fresh tea.
Get merged Them guys we still love our boys and blue still have the best record in major league baseball.
But no one said it was gonna be easy.
No one said that We were just gonna walk all the way to the world.
Siris Coast to the World Series and roots to another championship.
This team has worked to Dio and this Siri's shows that, but but But we got bets, All right.
Poor Bellenger chokes in big situations that you're talking about a guy who is an NLCS M v p.
Cody Bellenger is a guy who's gonna win an M v P this year.
He's a guy that he's got.
He's got him. He's had walk offs in the postseason.
So Cody Bellinger is a guy that I still trust, and I still trust will make the necessary adjustments to start playing at that M V P Level.
Yet Davis too stupid to know what to do.
Dean O's 51 50 Richard Sad hitting German armaments and 951 in the House.
It was a frustrating lost.
Their offense is what killed him.
They had many runners in scoring position and couldn't bring them home.
They need to fix that issue and get those bats going if they wanna win, all in October.
You said it best.
You're right on the money.
You hit the you hit around the nail there.
But the good thing is, you're it was an aberration if you look, if we've had the sample size off this entire season, to know that the Dodgers have improved in areas that have been played by in the past, their offense with two outs is 50 points better than it was last year.
Two hours the runners on 50 points better than it was in years past.
They've shown that they can win games without hitting home runs, but to me they just got humbled they got humbled.
They got out, out, out match in this series, and it was really a shame, because you could just feel it there.
Delores, we don't have the bullpen pitching. Doug.
I really think that you could almost see it.
Switch. Look this season.
Look at Joe Kelly. If you look at Joe Kelly.
Last 10 9 innings pitched.
Four hits, two walks, 12 K's no runs.
If you look at Pedro Baez, I don't blame Pedro Baez.
Ah, they have work today.
He's limited opponents to a 1 10 average in the aid, and he had.
That was his 40th hold off of the season yesterday.
So I think when you throw that depth and that quality of the starting pitching, I still want to see it now.
I'm on the point now where I think that dust in May, they got to see what they can get out of him as a bullpen peas because I really start to trust.
I was really starting to lean Ah, for Rich Hill because I just I really think that he's gonna be back just his body language, the what we've heard from him.
And if you look at Rich Hill, he has a 266 e r A.
In 11 postseason games from 2016 to 2018.
So that's a guy you give the ball in big games, and then you start to get guys and give you extended relief.
Like Johnson like May like Julio Urias.
Cancel my ankles.
That's four guys there that are used to giving more than one or two innings, and it starts.
So I do secretly start to believe in this bullpen.
I just want to see the offense look more dynamic.
I'm gonna really be paying a close eye to it.
And the next couple weeks has looked this.
Let's just be honest here.
The Dodgers failed this test against the New York Yankees.
Friday night was a laugher yesterday.
They could have lost that game easily, and then today they just couldn't get anything going.
And their approach at the plate was one of the worst I've seen all season long.
To be honest, it was a hard Siri's to watch and it was just cause of the terrible uniforms.
Great point there, Doug MH Dog Jansen Onley positive be nice to put it together.
Um, brand store.
We missed the boat on not training of some of this farm system talent that we have no room for anyway.
I actually don't think so.
There are some logjams, but I think that the move just wasn't there.
If you want to say anything, really, you should just say the daughters.
And it didn't correct it in the off season, but I would never give up.
Dustin Mayor Gavin looks for Felipe Vasquez.
And if you look at Shane Greene, Shane Greene has been a disaster, but, um, so here we go.
Um, fixes were quick.
Bottom line are Sean Shepherd Bottom line.
No bass David jeans.
Quick, guys, get here.
By the way, you guys, You guys feel better after this chat? I mean, come on, it's gotta help a little bit after after such a tough loss.
Right? Um ah, here we go.
Bottom line. No bats.
Taylor, This Siri's wasn't really that important, you know, best record.
But we still have it.
It wasn't important on the fact that the Dodgers still are in play for having the best record.
They still have the best record.
But it did leave a bad taste in your mouth.
You can't you can't deny that.
You can't deny that for team.
Look, let's say the daughters had won one of these past two world Siris.
Sure, it's just another Siri's.
But when the Dodgers were as out matches, they were against the Red Sox last year.
I just want to see what, what, what? They're going to d'oh! And and unfortunately, look, Kenley touching 96.
But and that was good.
But ah, they did not.
Ah, they did not fare well in today.
Today the offense just sputtered all day and it was not a pretty sight.
Richard Kershaw throws up that loop pitch, and judge hits it out.
Yeah, he hung that curve and just throw.
Took it away right there.
Left center, right.
Center rail at three Ridge.
It was those white uniforms.
Yeah, those white uniforms.
I mean, we're so bad.
Those were so bad.
Major League baseball needs to really reconsider how their market themselves, you have to The most iconic informs Dodger Blue Yankees.
I know they're wrong. They're not rocking the pinstripes.
But, hey, you got the gray with the New York.
I mean, you really want to see that? Because since 2004 there's the for Yes, we played him since then.
But since 2000 for this is the first time that these two teams we're gonna meet in the regular season in which boat teams we're gonna be in the playoffs.
So they haven't had a meaningful Siri's since 2004 and it was really a shame.
Major League baseball.
It's just every first of all one there, just hideous.
There's no question about that.
There were there was just hideous, but also I was at the game, and you just really can't even read the numbers on them.
So it makes the viewing experience.
It starts to really, really compromise the viewing experience, but I don't want to ever see those again.
What they should do is, is just put him in a dumpster and just light him on fire.
Look, I mean, those things were not not fun.
It was an exhibition game.
Disagree with that.
I disagree with that.
To say was an exhibition game to me is is really a discredit to a Yankee team.
And look, you're telling me this Yankee team is not gonna still try to hit home runs in the Fall Classic visit a team that has hit 59 home runs in August.
They're a team that is shattering home run records.
And the reason why the Dodgers lost this Siri's was because they gave up home runs.
Let's say the daughters are losing tight ones on Friday and today without giving him home runs and be a different story.
There'd be a different way to spin it, but they gave up all those jacks to the Bronx Bombers, and it's going to rear its ugly head unless the daughters can match that potent lineup.
Or they can find a way to neutralize it with with better pitching and ah, better command.
Because Clayton Kershaw was gonna find out how they got that curveball and Wyatt hung and just that first inning for Kershaw, we gave you his e.
A way above five Ray Final, Siri's of interleague play.
Ah, I think they play the Orioles. They they go.
I think they go.
They play Baltimore, which is like a basically a a J V high school team, so those will be hopefully three.
Pat Code needs to go back to shorten his swing with two strikes manual.
They need to start playing small ball.
We are paid for the deal's people pay with the devil.
Oh, we are paid for all the deals people made with the devil to win the 88 world. Serious.
I don't think that's the gays.
A really playoff.
Bellenger showed up for this series.
David Jeans Oh, Michael Ford Best Cody Bellenger.
Cody Bellinger had it off Siri's.
There's no there's no question about that.
Cody Bellenger is Look, you can bask Cody Bellinger all you want, but this team is is not gonna go far If Cody Bellinger does not start toe, replicate some of the early season six says he was having this year.
If you look at Cody Bellenger, Julia Cody Bellenger Um, he's a guy that that Ah yeah, saying well above 300 heading into the All Star break and that's you know, he's like 3 43 heading into the break.
Now that averages dipping all the way down and last ah, last 30 games He's just Ah, hasn't hasn't really taken the walks.
He hasn't he His approach at the plate hasn't been the same.
Cody Balaji still slug You know he's still getting home runs.
He's still tied for the league lead home runs with 42 but we know that Cody Bellenger is at his best when he's he's combining that with with a much more measured approach at the plate.
Ah, here we go, Bruce.
Dodgers a disappoint to us fan Pat.
Did Turner Ward get his old job back with his team? I like that patio did turn it Ward take over for for Robert Van School.
Goose was the bright spot.
The only bright spot Goose was the bright spot.
Also, Kenley Jansen.
Getting out of that was a bluff bright spot because it Kenley Jansen had had dropped that won.
His confidence would have been the gutter.
There's no question about that.
Kenley Jansen would have absolutely since June 26.
Kenley Jansen opponents reading to 67 against them, and he's blown three of here.
He had blown three of seven save opportunities with a 48 e r A So if you look at Kelly Jansen, he's still evolving, and I don't know what.
Ah, I don't know if he can keep that cutter consistently at 94 again.
I don't know if it's adrenaline.
I don't know if it's mental.
I love it's digging deep.
But look, he was attacking seven straight fastballs, and he's also last year.
He gives 13 home runs this year, eight home runs and Kenley Jansen if he can.
If he can find a groove, he's not gonna be 2017 Kenley Jansen ever again.
But But, ah, but if you look at it, if you just look at it the usage 2018.
That cutter usage is already down from 84 to 77%.
Ah, ****ed that he had thrown 90% of time in his prime.
Opponents are hitting 1 94 against him. This year.
It's 2 43 That velocity last year was at 92 1 this year, 91 7 So did Kenley Jansen find something? Was it the implementation of his legs that they were talking about mechanically? But I think that yes, it wasn't the prettiest thing.
Real frg was talking about how Clint Casillas.
He was talking about him needing a dynamite, anyone three straight strikeouts striking out the side.
I agree with that.
That would be the best case scenario.
But it could have gotten a lot worse if Kenley Jansen didn't get that win.
And the Dodgers definitely did save face on Sunday.
Ah, and you're right.
The biggest take home was was Tony Johnson.
I'm goo goo for Goslin.
Okay, I'll tell you that right now.
Big fan of the guy, his pitch mix.
He's got that splitter.
That's just devastating.
You're talking about inducing nice, soft and weak contact, and that's what gets it done in the postseason.
Scotty Cat one was that.
Now how fitting that you talk.
I take you right after I'm talking about Gonsouland.
Um, how the heck did the Yankees lose four games in Oakland yet made us look like a double 18? I watched some of that.
Siri's and the Athletics were scrapping that. Siri's there, get runs.
The offense started, come alive.
Aaron Judge really came alive.
Alex Rodriguez, By the way, that cereal, What a day! Terrible uniforms have to list the Alex Rodriguez had listen to the sound effects of the ESPN broadcast, but anyways he was talking about It's a judgment weekend and this In that ad, he was a major factor.
He was a major factor on Friday.
Today, Kevin ran the numbers five and one Curse for the Dodgers.
Oh, I love that name.
No mofo mo coming at us from YouTube.
By the way, you guys got to subscribe to youtube dot com slash Dodgers.
TV also hit me up on Instagram and Twitter at D.
Guys Charles Hammell Corey Seager is not being patient at the plate.
That's just what Corey Seager does.
If you leave Corey Seager, that is really the reason why he's been dynamic.
He has a track record of having success with first pitch with it with a first pitch ambush approach.
But if you look at the home Stanford Cory Siri's gone seven of 17 last seven for Corey Seager, 3 68 with four doubles last 30 14 17 extra base hit.
So in the last 30 games, 17 extra base hits for Corey Seager that's lead lattes has led the Dodgers.
So I think if you're Corey Seager.
You stay with what you're doing.
You can take a step back and maybe not every single at bat have that approach.
But I think that Corey Seager has been quietly easing back into being the Cory Sear.
We needed to be what we do.
We need Max Muncy and Cody Ballenger to start hitting for more of an average and start producing more consistently like they were.
Look, they're gonna be the first.
They're gonna be the first.
Ah ah, first Dodgers to hit 40 home runs on the same team since that 1953 team that had Duke Snider and Roy Campanella.
So there are still slugging.
But we know that this Dodger team Here we go.
We got Joseph Mega Xeni.
Day one of the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
How's it going? Joseph Magazine? He he's at the ravine.
What was the mood like at Dodger Stadium, where the Dodger was the Yankee fans out in force? I saw it reached like Peek, Do she Yankee a peak Yankee do Cherie.
When that guy was floating around Ah, in the bleachers with the end.
Why? I mean, look, there's another worse than a Yankee fan after a series win.
There's no question about that.
But look, we will get our revenge when it counts.
That's gonna be in October, and I still think that this team is a team that has a lot to a lot to AA lot to be proud of for what we what they've accomplished in the last couple weeks.
But this was an ugly Siri's.
I'm not gonna spend that on the I Look, I'm the I love the Dodgers as much as you guys.
I will look at the glass half full.
But in this series, it was definitely not a good look for a team looking to make another statement against an elite ale club, and they didn't get it done.
They didn't get done from at the plate, and and pitching didn't get it done, really.
Tony Gonsouland, Pedro Baez and Joe Kelly yesterday are one of the one of the few bright spots from another wise, very underwhelming and disappointed weekend at the ravine.
I was there Friday, had a good time, was always have a good time.
I don't care if we lose.
If we win, Dodger Stadium is Dodger Stadium.
And my point is, though, it felt like a playoff game.
So for anyone, just a one page below a playoff game, really, because the energy was there.
And, like I was saying, It's the first time in 2004 that these teams have faced off where they're both gonna make the playoffs.
So both teams fighting for home field advantage had a lot to play for, and the Yankees took full advantage.
The Dodgers did not.
Ah, yankeespitching isn't even good.
That's from Jack's 2178 Michael Williams.
If the daughters 160 games, Um, this guy would find something coming about.
Why? Because someone is paying him to complain.
I know what you're talking about me, but I don't, uh, really well recall the same place.
We're on the same page here, but ah, but they're definitely not definitely not doing.
I really think that if you look at this Dodger team, it is the fact that they came into the Siri's winning nine of 13 and I had said earlier they finished the week for into so those games count the same It doesn't matter who you win or lose against.
But trust me, this Siri's will be remembered until the Dodgers really start to turn around as far as their ability to get the offense rolling again against an elite pitcher.
And trust me, if the Dodgers play the Yankees in the postseason, they will reference this Siri's Ah, here we go.
The Joseph magazine.
The issue was leaving guys, right? Yes, the Dodgers had base runners on the Dodgers had had guys on and to start the inning in the 2nd 3rd and fourth, and they just cannot, cannot capitalize.
The Dodgers could not get guys in, and it was really the death.
Now they just could not get it.
Get it going for this team and Austin Barnes give awesome.
By the way, I give that to me. That's a bright spot.
Austin Barnes hitting a gap, er, he's been through a lot.
He makes his way back up.
So give credit mash that hard bun for Austin Barnes. Barnes.
He came back and he got a double.
So to me, that was big.
But, um but here we go.
Um, how do we go? We got um, we go back a teenager.
You got rocked in. Kershaw gave up some meatballs.
That's that's a That's a fair assessment.
Great. We swept the Blue Jays. My club.
This does not determine our season. Absolutely.
That's the common of the day.
This is not determine our season.
It doesn't in the least in the least.
And there is no panic button being pushed by Dodgers Nation.
But some of the some of the deficiencies this weekend we're very glaring.
And and, ah, and we're gonna have Thio have to really improve in certain areas we need if we need freeze back.
Yes, Scotty, Out guys made some really poor fielding mistakes at a vein of pitching.
Rudy played scared all weekend.
It was the perfect storm cold bat, sub par pitching and bad breaks. Ray.
Does anybody know if there's a slim possibility we get tolls again without that's good daughters Nation outcome's gonna update on that Scotty Cat.
Perez Rather have the Dodgers slum now the next week.
Rather the end of the exact That's a great point.
You want to be peaking at the right time.
This team is not peeking.
This team is not peeking.
It's just they left a lot to be desired with the way with to be desire with the way they lost games this weekend.
So, yeah, with you, the Dodgers, this Siri's look, you had.
You had Yankee, a lot of Yankee fans, and you had a lot of hype around the Siri's.
The Dodgers could have made a statement, but it's not gonna determine the season, and the daughter's still have an opportunity to get it right and start peeking at the right time.
But a lot of us have had been very encouraged by this offense all year, and then they sputtered this weekend, and we just kind of want to see what is going on.
Because Friday wasn't pretty.
Yesterday wasn't pretty, and today wasn't pretty.
That's three days, three straight games against an elite opponent.
This offense has not showed up.
I don't care what you say.
They got a little home where they got a home run from John today and they got bailed out by a Turner home run yesterday.
But safer that they have not gone.
The offensive production that we've seen all season long And to me, it's something that it is something to definitely take note of and file under the world.
Will Jewel will see how this progresses as the season moves along.
Robert Not moving but Runners Biggest concern.
Yeah, also, that that's that's steal attempt by Jock.
I thought was so unnecessary there.
How the bullpen workout for your Roberts Robert Vest and not moving runners.
Biggest concern. Beth Stupid.
If you don't scan when it win, if you don't score runs from Scotty, we got Tina Ji Min told.
Is it coming back this season? Maybe never.
Yeah, Tina, I think you're right on the money with that chancellor, the offense staying reliable and hitting with runners in scoring position.
Look, if this season had been replicating years past where the daughters were dead last in those some of those categories, then I think you would be really in hitting panic, hitting the panic button and waving the red flag.
But you just wonder, was this week in an aberration? Or does this team need to get back to basics and start doing what they've done this entire year? Under the tool is a robber vent score Jack and getting this offense to beam or dynamic.
Rob, our hitters didn't perform David Jen's Oh, our 5 to 10 pictures didn't intimidate behind a.
It's just going to hear all of ESPN l b Just talk nonsense until the world Siris.
Now that's a great point, cause you know they're gonna run with this.
You know, a lot of you know, those Power Rangers rankings.
Watch the power rankings tomorrow.
And the Dodgers, they're going to see all this.
There's all these knee jerk reactions from this Siri's and I would not be surprised if the Yankees are Number one of those power rankings.
So that's a great point right there.
P y que Os Can we get some love for the bullpen? Look, give the bullpen credit.
Yesterday, they were nails today.
Buys came in, gave in a run, but But for the most part, it wasn't a disaster.
And Kenley Jansen? It could have very well been a disaster.
A little bit of look, a little bit of vintage Kenley and the Dodgers got that one.
Eric Lee Ruiz over Smith.
I haven't seen enough of Ruiz in person.
But but Will Smith, If you look at what he's done in his short times in over 3 18 in his time back, So last seven years, he's dipped a little bit that no question about it. Will Smith.
His production has dipped, its regressed a little bit, so but ah, no, really. Come on.
And it's not the union's fault.
This is the 2019 Dodgers to exactly.
Did they forget who they were? Do they have to look down? See that Dodger blue across their chest? And I'm not making too much of it.
I just thought they were just kind of ugly man.
Reminded the sea and stepbrothers where Brennen is, they're getting forced to lick the white ****.
I feel like I was getting forced to watch the white **** today.
I don't like those unions, man.
The Dodgers, to me, in my opinion, have the best uniform in Major league baseball, and I just love to see it's the widest whites, The wedding cake.
Why, it looks super Kriss Super clean.
Dodger Blue, The best shade of blue There is so it was just a little bit of disappointment.
I know some guys air more upset than others.
We should of got D J in free agency.
Roy Garcia blamed the fans from the from the 88 that made deal.
That's the second time you mentioned that San 40 games over 500 go Dodgers.
That's what I'm talking about.
Sam mashed that hard bun.
Let me get definitely share this.
If you're on Facebook, let's not lose sight of the fact that the Dodgers are still in the midst of a storybook season that has 12 walk offs that has been the most fun season is.
To me, this is the most fun season.
Maybe it's recency bias, but to me, it's the most fun season that I've ever I've ever had a chance to see for the daughters.
And I've been following the team my entire life, really? So I just had a lot of fun watching this team, the way they're scrappy.
That's why that's why this Siri's was so disappointed cause they didn't have those those late season, those gritty at bats and they just weren't able to put it together.
But Eric Lee won 15 playoff Bellenger Verdu.
Daughters were humbled.
Lucky to win one game you're not.
You're not wrong on that.
The doctors could have definitely easily gone swept at home, which have been what you would definitely have left a sour taste in all you guys a mouths and it would have been very bad.
Um What up, Doug? No, definitely not.
We're rocking with men.
Is a lot of them today.
A lot of tweets. I'm just I'm just reading the ones they disappear.
One think once it goes past.
So I'm just trying to get as many as I can in rapid fire style manages.
Let's play some small ball.
If the runners on first Bundt put the ball in play, Daughters 3 to 3.
Bullpen was the prom.
Regardless of how how much fans bashed Jansen Pat can LeBron hit? Can LeBron hit Ray Bar? See me? A.
Has been carrying the load lately at absolutely Justin.
Well, Justin turn last seven, hitting one sixties, 1 76 last 32 75 but he's really starting to hit home runs 21 of his last 39 hits since the All Star break have been for extra bases.
So 21 of his last 39 hits since he also break have been for extra bases.
So Turner's slugging 13 home runs since he also break leads the team in that category.
So you're right.
Justin Turner, as he does every second half, has come around.
Cody back in 2018 playoff form, striking out all over the plate.
Perez FRG was right.
Send Cody down to the minors and call them up next week.
Rudy Puh props up all day.
Can't move up. Pop flies.
Can Roberts manage? I think if you look at him 23 postseason wins, he's definitely shown he can manage.
And I still believe in Dave Roberts.
But we'll see what happens.
This postseason is gonna go a long way to see whether or not how I feel about Dave Robertson.
A long run but back to back world.
Siris is no easy feat, very difficult to get back in.
You can't underestimate the trust and loyalty he gives, and guys and guys are rated run through a wall for Dave Roberts.
So guys play hard for Dave Roberts.
They believe in Dave Roberts.
So there's certain things you can't teach.
You can teach that you can't teach leadership abilities, but you can't start toe toe.
Help him better his his ability to manage searching situations.
But Jack Clayton struck out 12.
Wonderful Hash tag go, Yankees.
We got the Yankee fans in here represents.
Thanks for rocking with us.
We'll see you in.
Ah, we'll see you in October.
Possibly give you that.
Um Well, this will be long for God if the Dodgers won the World Series against the Yankees.
We're gonna laugh about this one, Mike.
We want to see her.
Siri's 42 strange hour hitting looked like the Marlins.
Manny, I truly believe we could beat the Yanks, but we can't win if we don't get any hits.
Hey, love the Yankees.
Look like the Yankee Yankee nation is filing in or not partying up and down. L.
Should take advantage of that.
Enjoy your time in Los Angeles.
But guys, we have just times it looks like we're nearing the one hour mark.
We're way past it.
While there's so many comments today, try to get as many as I can like with you with Thanks to rock with us.
You guys were on fire all night, so get a couple your last night.
Thanks for rocking with us.
Thanks for watching the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
Guys, your takes on the money as usual.
A lot of hot takes out there, but, hey, that's what this is for.

Siri's for the Dodgers.
So get a couple final takes in here and I'll read them off.
And then we're gonna be done with this post game show and back to getting to our winning ways.
The Dodgers seven game road trip.
You've got San Diego and Arizona coming up so the Dodgers can get it right.
Start piling up those winds star building some separation against the Yankees and the Astros, and then we're gonna get right.
Um, here we go, Tina.
Gene pitching can lose the game.
Munsey made some mistakes.
He really was an issue, but Kershaw gave up all solos.
This lineup is potent.
He needs offensive support.
We left so many guys straight, and that was really that was really the crux of the issue.
But if you look at, if you look at Clayton Kershaw, we know he's gonna give home runs.
The fact today two home runs off his curveball.
You only had 10 times with over 4000 curve balls.
Almost have you had a home run against his curve ball? So that was an issue today.
The Dodgers bats, they were ice cold all weekend.
Really? And Hunter, were you? I don't think that he's completely healthy at this point.
I think Hunter, you clearly clearly needs to have his innings manage to really get back to basics and starts a really, really zero in on being elite.
Like he was s O.
That was a bad start to to back to back Rocky starts for hunting for you.
So we got to get him pitching out an ace level again.
Ah, but a couple more.
You could do this all night.
Really? But you guys just on fire tonight, man.
Um, but here we go.
Jeff, we got Smith.
Let's go to the bottom here, Lemon air.
Hopefully we prove us wrong in the postseason.
But honestly, guys, thanks again for rocking with us.
