And welcome to the Dodgers nation postgame show monomers. Doug McCain.
Thanks for rocking with us tonight.
Here in the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
You can find me at D.
Mac underscore late.
If you're watching on Facebook, be sure to share.
If you're watching on Twitter, be sure to read Tweet like mass that Harper for your Dodgers, the magic number is now down.
You can count on one hand down to five.
They're getting this N l West crown locked up very, very shortly here.
We're gonna break it all down, can only chance.
And once again, he makes our hearts beat fast.
My hands are very clammy.
I'm pretty sure at this point Kelly Jansen has a deal with all the therapists in L. A.
Because he's driving us all crazy every time he gets out there.
I like the soft contact he got.
He got the out the slider at the end.
We'll break it down, Alonso.
Really a nice piece of hitting there with that dough.
But welcome here in on the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
Glad to have you with us, but you know how we get things kicked off here on the postgame show.
Throw your zip code, Throw your city, put it in the comments, so I'll give you guys some shout outs.
Who do you guys have? Is the player of the game? Like I said, Come for the rookies.
Stay for the vets.
Roll some are they Homer in the seventh.
Dodgers down to oh, going into the Bomb of Seven.
They get back to back Jacks.
A three run bomb by Russell Martin, his 60th home run as a Los Angeles Dodger.
Six of the season.
Like the real FRG says, He's a guy I can always count on to give you a professional at bat, and that's what he does.
He knows the strike zone better than any pit, any hitter, because he's the catcher because he's a vet and he went one for two tonight.
Three run home run.
And that was really the spark for the Dodgers and the Justin Turner.
He's not a vet like David Freeze and Russell Martin, but he's getting up there, too, and he got it done.
Hey, throwing those comments in there, let me get these shout outs rolling here were to go hop right into these comments.
Rapid fire style.
But welcome to the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
Thanks for rocking with us Magic.
Number is down to 5 October baseball.
We're getting closer and closer to October baseball.
Greatest time of the air.
But the Dodgers improve their record 91 in 50 41 games over 500 now they improve their home regular.
The boys in blue been getting it done all year.
But here you go, You guys lighten up these comments.
Let's start right the time.
My boy David can know what up, David.
Always rock with us.
Good games, Dodger.
Jeremy got the party.
You know, we got the best Dodger after party in town. Jeremy.
So that's a fitting emoji.
Melissa Blue with the heart Emoji Reuben Marino from Santa Maria, California 805 Kelly Sanders from you to mash that like but on YouTube for most Amar.
And you did it. Hey, Russell.
Martin is the man.
I love me some Russell Martin and he got it done.
He left the yard and you saw last couple home runs for Russell Martin.
He goes opposite field tonight.
He pulls one into the pavilion.
Another nice catch by the guy out there.
Hey, man, we got a lot of nice grabs.
The one in center by that Raiders fan on the on the air in auto home run.
But But Russell? Marty gets it. Done it.
David Freeze, since he's been back from the aisle.
2432 home runs. Four. David.
So you gotta love that.
He's getting it done.
And David freeze.
His home run percentage is 6.
His career best is 3.
Tell the 12 that's from Dodgers inside of here we go.
Need a closer? Oh, actually, Ryan Montana.
I start Watch the game at the right time.
Inning What? Ryan.
Oh, Ryan, He's always rock with us.
Hamilton, how you doing? Oh, my God.
Can we get rid of Jansen? He almost blew it.
He has no knockout pitch.
Look, we have a pretty mansion in Bel Air, but we don't have a lot to it with Kenley Jansen.
Right now, we need to put some more locks on that door.
And Kenley Jansen, he's figured it out tonight he just Hey, he puts you on Ah, he puts you on pins and needles every time he's out there.
But, like Joe, Davis said, We need to have him.
And like I've said, too, for a long time, we are not gonna make it deep in the postseason.
If he's not getting out for this club, whether it's the eighth inning before that, whether it's the ninth inning, when his recipe, he gets a clean inning, we need to have him get it done.
But he gives up a walk.
He gives up that double Alonzo and just more of the same for Kenley Jansen.
You thought with that insurance run with Justin Turner, they'd be more comfortable out there and Justice.
Rockies lineup They are a potent lineup, but yeah, Kenley Jansen.
It is still a work in progress, and it still appears that they're using as a workshop for him to start mixing in that slaughter.
You know the numbers.
We do it every time.
About the percentage of his cutter went from 90% down to 75.
I mean, he's throwing it with less regularity, so if he doesn't develop a slider, doesn't get that done.
He's probably not gonna be effective in October.
So back to your comments, we got Bob.
Torrey Jansen cannot be closing games.
Who would you guys have right now? You got one guy out of that bullpen.
Who you picking clothes? The games for your Los Angeles Dodgers? I know you guys going to say so I'll just wait and read off when I get to the comments.
But Joe Kelly is a guy that we built a lot of confidence in, and ah, here we go.
We got Victor, got the win, but But again, Jansen gives up another run.
Well, it wasn't pretty, but Jansen got it done.
Shout out to the bottom of the order.
Oceanside, California David, Another one of the V I p members.
Here you guys are back.
But look, since August since August, Kenley Jansen six earned runs, three home runs and 12 hits and 10 innings of work.
So he's a guy that these metrics are not lining up.
What they don't scream elite.
This is a career high and e r.
For him, after, um in July had a 5 60 are 563 are a August of five even.
And then he went to of five and save attempts.
And we all know one of those safe attempts.
It wasn't for Max.
Muncy convinced the umpire to call timeout.
That's probably another blown safe.
So if you look at the average is against him.
Hitters were hitting 1 97 against Kenley Jansen before the break after the break there, hitting over to 75.
So, in my opinion, it's a no brainer.
It's closer by committee.
He earns each and every appearance that he gets in the postseason.
If he if he flames out in the division series, then we reduce his role.
If you flames down the NLCS, then he we reduce his role.
But it is to me it's gonna be touch and go until Kenley Jansen can prove that he consistently go out there and that he could earn the confidence of Dodgers nation out there because right now, unfortunately, does not have it.
Ernesto 53 Um, well, we got Greg.
It's a beautiful thing.
Magic number is five palm trees, strong heart baseball.
I love it, Janey.
Luckily, we had the three run lead exactly the 31 lead.
Shout out to Justin Turner.
We weren't happy with a four to lead.
He goes out there a nice stroke for Justin Turner and give it up to Justin Turner.
Justin Turner, that's his ties.
His career high with home runs ties his career high.
27 Jack for Justin Turner tonight.
And he's a guy that has really been putting together Justin Turner.
Post All Star break. Justin Turner.
He's hitting 2 92 Slugging 6 37 17 Home runs.
Post All Star break.
So last 74 Justin Turner's still turning on Justin turn.
If you look at him last seven.
Um, he's given you about Um um, yeah, last seven for Justin Turner.
He's giving about 2 73 but now three home runs for five R B I's and he's a guy that you could see is rounding into form, and we know that this team goes as far as he goes.
You saw his averages when the Dodgers win games versus when they don't, he is the sturdiest that stirs the Dodger, the straw that stirs the Dodgers drink on offense.
Yes, Cody Bellinger is going to win the M V.
P Yes, Corey Seager.
By the way, Corey Seager.
If you look at Corey Seager since Ah Mei 12 he's hitting 2 90 slashing 2 93 42 5 18 with the O.
P s plus of over 1 25 So, yes, we have those rocks.
But Justin Turner offensively has proven to be the most important Dodger when it comes to that.
That part of the lineup.
Here we go, Greg cast Jamie.
Luckily, we had it through a lead. Pat.
Another clean inning for Jansen.
Dodgers Better make sure they reply.
Four runs going into the night in the playoffs, sm age.
If it comes to that and this Dodger front office, this regime with Andrew Freeman and Dave Roberts, we never know who's really making these decisions.
If they're throwing Kenley Jansen in tight situations without him proving ahead of time that he can get it done, we know it's gonna be a recipe for disaster.
Kenley Jansen has to prove to us in the next month and 1/2 or so that he can be trusted with E save opportunities tonight.
Five to lead Dodger Stadium, the Rockies air out of it and they go in there and Ah, Like I said, I don't like having clammy hands and feel awkward.
I'm starting sweating.
I gave blood today.
I mean, come on.
I verified that.
I think I think blue bleed blue.
By the way, go get one of these T shirts on Dodgers nation dot com.
Check it all the great content, But back to the comments Hamilton Jansen cannot be pitching period.
How about sit him for the rest of the year? Hamilton don't always agree with your takes, but I love your taste cause they are blistering hot and you want to sit him for the entire year.
$18 million in the bank.
Take the take the rest of the year off.
I don't think it's to that level yet.
It's not to that level yet because the daughters did not pick up someone in the off in the trade deadline that can.
That can fill that void.
We put Kent in the bullpen now.
Yes, Tony Gonsouland.
Dustin May can can carry We're going to see what they can do, but we're gonna need him.
Julio Urias tonight he gave up the one to Murphy.
But Julio Urias he had a couple 123 innings.
It was great toe.
Have Julio Urias back, and to me, he's the wild card.
Julio Urias is the ultimate wild card for this team.
What can he do in the postseason? Can you be that extended relief locked down guy? Is he a guy that can throw in there in a starter's role? Whatever it is, we are going to need Julio Urias and early on, it really was.
The Fastball Committee didn't have the fastball command.
He left one and and Murray he got.
He got that when he doubled that one.
And then Murphy had that solo home run, so that command wasn't there early on, but it was his first game back.
And if you look at ah, he had three innings pitched tonight.
Three innings pitched, 44 pitches, two hits and a home run by Daniel Murphy.
But he definitely looked like in the later innings that he was starting to look like that.
Who are is that has elite stuff very high on Julio? Well, here we go.
Vets rot Melissa without Melissa John Taylor, notably Jansen struck out Mike Lupica, Another mediocre outing by Jansen.
This guy's a shell of his former self.
Look, if you look at if you look at Kenley Jansen, there's no question that, But you hear guys out there saying, Oh, is it a mental thing with Kenley Jansen? No, It's the father of time thing with Kenley Jansen, and he's not gonna be able to get that stuff back that he had from 17 4017.
Was 8/10 of a run.
Okay, we're not going to see that Kenley Jansen, this year's Rodeo Arias 548 runners in scoring position.
They're only hitting 1 72 against him, so but we're not gonna get that Kenley Jansen bag.
He's not walking through that door, and I don't say that as a negative.
I say we gotta maximize what he has left because you see the numbers.
The numbers are what they are with Kenley Jansen.
His decline has been pretty swift.
But do the Dodgers really have enough depth to afford not getting outs from him whatsoever? I think they're gonna need outs from him, regardless, if this team is to have make a deep run in October.
But back to you guys, um, thanks for rocking with his Dodgers Nation postgame show.
You guys watching live here? Paris? Go, beauty.
Where you guys watch over. You got YouTube.
You guys are not feeling Kenley Jansen tonight.
Um and look, you guys, the best fans in major league baseball.
And part of the problem is we saw just how dominant he was.
We saw Kenley Jansen when he was virtually unhittable.
He was absolutely unhittable in his absolute prime.
Kenley Jansen, this year, you know e r a over 37 and the blown saves already gives up eight home runs and the velocity if you look.
Last year he averaged 92.
1 on that cutter now is down to 91.7.
Opponents are hitting 2 43 against it, and they're just trying to get that slider back that make that slider respectable.
So So that's that's really ah, that's really gonna be the the ah ah.
One of the major major questions that this team has to answer is how many times are they gonna run him out there But it wasn't a complete disaster tonight.
But back to you guys.
Yeah, by the way, give those hard buns for Russell Martin.
I love Russell Martin.
This guy is a seasoned vet.
And I'm telling you, they came for their rookies tonight.
They came for Gavin looks, They came for our rookie sensations.
And then they leave and they stay for David Freeze in Russell Martin.
So he got it done.
He was the M v. P is the player of the game.
Who do you guys have? You could also talk about some other guys, but you know, it was Russell Martin. Three run bombs.
Six of the year, 60th in his Dodger career.
Tim Power from Newport.
By the way, if you have not yet.
Where you watching the Dodgers Nation postgame show? We got Tapia No.
18 1/8 of Valley Can you know Perez the A 30 the 781 30 Jose Rod from Huntington Beach.
What up, Jose? Always rocking with us.
Taylor Spencer Still not happy with the offense? We couldn't hit a guy with an e r a above eight above freaking eight.
And imagine the terrible pitching we would face.
Look, Gonzalez his his e r.
But he really pitched very well tonight.
Yeah, you got to give him some credit.
He pitched very well tonight.
The Dodgers weren't hitting his fastball.
If you look, a dog is like one of 13 against his fastball.
And at yesterday, 10 balls over 110.
They with an exit velocity 110 miles per hour more.
They did have their first exit velocity of 110 miles per hour.
Hit arm or until mad baby late in the game.
So you gotta give me some credit.
Yes. The offense was a little quiet.
That was gonna be like the Toronto Siri's where we rocked the Blue Jays.
We scored 16 on them, and then we went dormant for about five or six days.
But the doctors, they did pick it up.
But you look at Gonzales array of 7 to 901 pitches, three hits, two earned runs, three walks and three K's.
And he was on his game tonight, so you got to give him some credit and also the thing with ah with Gonzalez to is he was Ah, um, yeah, he didn't look like you want to come out, But also, you got to give the you got to give that.
Ah, you got to give that dodgersbullpen some credit.
Yes, Jimmy Garcia.
Jimmy Garcia did not.
Let's just put like that.
He's consistently consistent when it comes to giving up home runs.
And, ah, like the great philosopher Riel, FRG said, The sun rises, the sun sets and you, me Garcia serves up bombs.
It was on a 95 mile per hour kind of Ah, lower, lower third of the plate.
Middle middle guys like Aaron Auto gonna hit that.
And it's unfortunate just continues to happen.
And now he's given up 15 home runs.
So he's only thieves third in the league, an opponent average, but he's given up 15 home runs That's tied for the tops out of the bullpen.
So really unfortunate for you.
Me, Garcia from that standpoint, But here we go.
Let's ah, rapid fire.
Get those Dodger takes.
And if I've not got red, you off yet? Trust me.
I'm gonna get to all your takes tonight.
Here in the Dodgers Nation postgame show.
Be sure to share Retweet Mass.
That, like bun for your Dodgers.
That magic number down to five.
P y que es representing from the valley of the sun.
Well, p y que es Manny Seniors night at Dodgers Stadium.
They got it done.
And this is why this team is so special.
You have a combination of rookies that have come.
I mean, the list of rookies now you got Gavin Looks, by the way.
My girlfriend tells you one more time how, How? How much she likes Gavin Lux.
I don't know, man, because she really is a big fan off Mr Looks.
And you got Gavin looks You got dust.
May Will Smith, Alex for do goes not even back.
All these great rookies, Matt, baby, Kyle Garlic did his thing.
Edwin Rios hit a home run.
So it's nice to see these veterans because, yes, they're important for contributing on the field.
But don't underestimate what they do in the locker room.
They keep things to get together.
David, freeze! Rosa Mara, these air all key cog in this Dodger team.
So that's why I just love this team.
You've got a great mix off rookies and vets.
But we got tabby ago.
Dodgers Robert from the Coachella Valley.
We got, um, we got Ryan.
Of course, Jansen has to make a sweat.
Bullets Exactly. Amen.
John The 696817 Aloha.
Ryan from El Paso, Texas.
Al Paso Strong What? Ryan Edgar from SAC Town, 916 Rep.
All day frank time for Jansen to be sent to the minors.
And that's thing.
I mean, that's that's something that it's really a pride thing with him.
That's obviously still an option with him, But you're telling a guy who's 18 no signs of $80 million contract.
Ah, guy who's been the rock for this dodgersbullpen for seven on seven some odd years, and this guy has been the leader in that bullpen.
All he knows is elite success and to tell him to go the bullpens to refine his craft.
That's a tough conversation for Dave Robertson Company and cast it and and and Andrew Freeman.
But hey, look, Caleb Ferguson, he looked pretty decent tonight.
Caleb Ferguson, a 123 inning.
I think 98 or nine pitches, and he did that earlier this year.
And I don't think it's the worst idea, because with Kenley Jansen, you're trying to workshop a pitch in the slider and you're tryingto workshop a new approach in the middle of a world Siris chase.
And, yes, the Dodgers, they have this division locked up.
We've had it locked up for quite some time now, but the daughters are 1/2 game behind the New York Yankees. The Yankees.
They're sitting at 91 in 49 your boys in blue.
They're 91 in 50 and the Astros there on the Dodgers heels.
They're only 1/2 game behind the Dodgers, so in his neck and neck, and these teams were fighting for that home field advantage.
And I told you the Dodgers 53 wins at home this year, and you saw those e r.
A splits the Dodgers 100.
Were you? Clayton, Kershaw, Walker Bealer are three best pitchers.
They love them some Dodger Stadium, and they're gonna want that home cooking at the Chavez Ravine.
So to me, it's a tough it's a tough thing.
It's a tough thing that the daughters are dealing with with Kenley Jansen.
It's a It's a great It's a tough conversation with with Kenley Jansen.
See Dodgers, um, and their season's ending Pretty soon.
So, um, so that's that's really Yeah.
I'm not gonna be such a such a possibility, but, um, in the near future.
But Jerry Moss, the 9 to 675 sweated out Robert Freeze with a big impact.
Magic number five from Melissa J.
Dodger Gonzales, Mexicali, Mexico.
Viva Lows, Dodgers.
J dots and watching Jansen close the game.
Is Pierre torture just not Ali closer anymore.
Tapia from the 818 put coin mo What up? Um, last Macon's for a second, But our back Kathy, I'm just glad we only have gave up three runs.
Our pictures have been so have given up so many runs.
Juan, we need LeBron James. Okay.
You need LeBron James.
I don't know LeBron James.
Three and nine career in the finals.
I don't think he's the closer that we want.
Yes, LeBron's a great player, but you're looking for closers.
I think there's some other players out there.
They will be my first choice.
Frank said Anthony.
I'm gonna be a Dodger Stadium on Saturday.
A Dodger Stadium.
There's no place like it.
Best fans in Major league baseball.
Melby go Dodgers candy.
We're staying up late for games like this.
Hey, look, I love the tension.
I have to admit I love the tension.
It's fun to watch, but it's starting to wear us then and we all can admit that.
Tapia Jose from Tijuana, Mexico.
What up, my man? Jacob.
I love we go international.
I always get a bump.
Ah, ah, but ah, here we go.
UFC Hashtag is time for Dodger baseball. Ben.
Let's get the best record.
Have home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Like I've mentioned when it comes from division round two NLCS to the world. Siris.
The world Siris has the biggest bump and postseason success since.
Ah, basically Game one of the world Siris.
The home team wins that match up 60% of the time, so the postseason is big.
But let's not forget the Dodgers three and seven all time against the New York Yankees from 41 to 81 but those three times.
The Dodgers, they went on the road did not have home field advantage in any of those Siri's, so it can be done.
And bottom line, the Dodgers are going to have to get wins on the road if they want to win this world, Siris.
But home field advantage is definitely of the utmost importance.
In my opinion, if you're the Los Angeles Dodgers won, you get the fans like you guys and to the numbers show that this team fears much better at home than they do on the road.
So, Sal Yes, let's hear for Jansen.
El Paso strong Robert 8 to 5.
If a California freeze player the game David freeze it.
Got to give it to David Freeze.
I have no issue with that.
You saw that home run rate sitting over 300 runners in scoring position to me, David freeze the guy that when he comes back when David when Dave freeze comes back, Um I mean, I mean, no way.
When now that he's back, he could do a lot of things you can play first.
Also look for him and the D H roll.
Look for him as a a bigtime pinch hit or so I love David.
Hopefully I'll bring me a jersey over there.
Hey, Anthony, What kind of jurors you gonna get? Let me know you're going home.
You're going? You on road? J.
Carter loved the show.
Doug, we out here in the 305 Miami.
The 305 in the mix.
That's what I'm talking about.
South Beach all day.
Jose D'backs can't stop winning any who go.
Dodgers the D backs. We're a hot team.
Before the Dodgers beat him on Sunday, had won six games in a row.
So hey, Rudy wide Jerko, uh, why'd your every time I say that I think of ah, real frg tweet? If he hits it, Jed Jerko hits a walk off, isn't it? Is it a jerkoff that makes me laugh every single time? Um, but, hey, judge, there goes a guy they picked up there doing some injuries at the time, And Jed Jerko tonight he got on some could have been marked as an era by Aaron Otto.
But he got on and also made some nice plays in the Ah, defensively.
Last couple days.
So, Jed Jerko, I don't think he's gonna be a pivotal part of the Dodgers postseason run, but we're right now in the dog days of August, when the dog days of August were chasing it and a West high.
We're about to pop bottles in the next couple of days.
Get that bubbly ready on Lee.
Five games for their seventh straight Eno West champion.
I love that kind of dominance.
P y kids Raider fan that made that catch was a Giants fan.
Did I miss something? Because if that's the case, no thanks.
I'm not cool with that.
I don't like the Giants fans here on on away inmate games.
They're not participating.
We're not We're not thinking about the Giants.
Giants can go toe.
Um Ah ah Germain! Our MENSA 951 Drop it in the house.
Gavin Lux is the talk of the show.
David Freeze and Russell Martin Ah, without age is just a number Exactly ages.
Just the number, especially for those two seasoned vets.
Yeah, Gavin looks.
One thing I love about Gavin looks is they mention he'd put on £40 but 40 good crowns 40 positive pounds.
And the thing that sticks out for did for Gavin Lux is that hand speed in the zone.
He makes quick adjustments, and he's a guy that really he just He looks comfortable out there.
And you just see the star potential in Gavin looks.
You just feel that from him.
Like we felt the same way with Alex for Do go.
And that's where I'm like you were bringing up guys.
They aren't just sluggers, not guys that could just go.
Your We're bringing up hitters like Alex Verdugo like Will Smith, like Gavin looks.
And the future is bright for this Dodger team, Gavin looks the most recent example.
And yeah, you know, he had his think Gavin.
Lucky, Like seven home runs his first year.
Now he had 26 home runs between double and Triple A, and he had a nice single tonight.
Last night, man, I I I promised I promised I was gonna tweet before the game that he was gonna go to for four with a single and a double didn't do that.
I'm starting to regret that, but I'm loving Gavin looks as far as Where does he fit in the Dodgers have an embarrassment of riches at that middle infield spot.
So hey, if he catches fire and he plays himself into this lineup, it's definitely possible because look, here's the pros and cons of having Gavel.
Gavel Looks up here, pros.
Everything okay? Because even in the worst case scenario, where he's not playing in the games, he's a guy that is gonna benefit from observing.
He's gonna benefit from being around this this Dodger culture, where all they do is win.
So I love it. I love it.
But back to these comments and Gavin loves How do you guys feel about Gavin looks? How would you give that? What would you Great, Gavin Lux is 1st 2 games.
Would you give it a B, C, D or F? Ah, of course.
I think I'm gonna give it a go.
Give it a B plus.
I'm to give it a B plus, and that's just because we've gotten spoiled all season long with Will Smith.
Maybe he gets a walk off like a Will Smith Sir Alex Verdugo.
Then I could put him in that age category, but B plus comes up clean.
Double gets a single tonight, another single and really, he was.
A lot of the detractors was that he was gonna be a liability defensively.
Steve Sax went there, went down there, got the yips out of him, and he looks comfortable out there.
He did not look like he.
He was timid her at all.
He looked like he was comfortable with the glove.
Gavin looks as much as you guys. The Lux.
The Lux Pun game has been just absolutely insane the last couple of days.
You gotta get throwing your luck's puns if you want.
I got a whole list of them here.
But Laura Love me Some Russell Martin Peabo 16 home runs the last two games, something strange going on in baseball.
Hey, you know the rule, the center of the pill, the drag, the way the letter is, that's just the culture of Major League baseball.
Yes, it's a different game.
It's a different game.
It's a less nuanced game, but the Dodgers do it with the best of him, and that's what's important is that the Dodgers did not let this year of major baseball passed them by 247 home runs by the Los Angeles Dodgers there, only to shy off the Houston Astros back in 2000 who hit 2 49 They also said another record Tonight.
They hit their 36 home run against the Colorado Rockies.
That's the most versus any team in Major League Baseball history for the Dodge.
The previous record was the Dodgers had hit.
Um, has they hit? Ah, in 1954? The Brooklyn Dodgers are there still chasing? Actually, they're there.
They're there to there.
So they're definitely gonna pass that with three games, Love.
You probably think they're gonna pass that.
The 1954 Brooklyn Dodgers hit 38 home runs versus the Reds in 22 games.
So that's just modern baseball for you.
The ball is flying out at a record pace and matches how it is.
We got Dodgers. UK can't hang around today.
Doug London calling to the Dodger Underworld.
What up, Dodgers? UK Always rocking with those.
How's it going? I love it all the way in the UK Awesome.
And Michigan Jansen is done.
He's Ah, he is not ableto pitch a clean inning.
I got it of Ben Sanchez.
Hope Jansen figures it out.
We got, um but Boom, we got Ah, Sonny.
I remember when Kenley Dom me like a closer is supposed to it's sad to see his decline.
You bring up a good point? Yes.
You have all this.
You have all this ridicule.
The pitchforks come out as soon as he has a bad game.
But bottom line is inside.
We want Kenley Jansen, Toby our closer.
We want him to be our Rivera.
We want him to do what Gandhi a did for us back and back in 2004.
But father of Time is never late.
And unfortunately, Kenley Jansen, if he doesn't get that pitch, mix right and get something that he's comfortable with, he can't rely on the cutter like he did during the era, during during the times when he was the best closer in major league baseball and there wasn't a close second.
So it's something that we're gonna have to follow and monitor closely with Kenley Jansen and he's gonna take us all for a pretty wild ride.
I can guarantee Is that Jeffrey bias or Kelly.
So you're Pedro Baez.
Give a give it up to Petey.
Petey has done great things of late.
He's a guy that looked there was a time when Ah, Pedro Baez.
We feared his appearances like we feared like we were.
We fear Kenley Jansen is these days, but Pedro Baez, a guy that he's built momentum all season long.
If you look at Pedro Baez last last 30 games e r A.
Over four, but last 7245 year A on the year of 338 e r.
A. 63 strikeouts.
61 innings Pidge and Yeah, Kenley, Jansen and Page Ah, Pedro Baez.
He came in and ah, uh, he's that he's really pitched.
Pitched a lot better.
Joe Kelly, to me is the guy I would roll with, cause Joe Kelly has the best stuff.
You see all he could get caught up a little a little easier, but here we go.
Dodgers UK just want to say I love this **** team.
Kenley gives me the tremors, though.
Hey, that's the reality.
Hey, it's not fun.
If you win every game, it's not fun if you blow out every game the Dodgers win, lose or draw, they're gonna make things interesting.
They're gonna put on a show for Dodger fans.
Just We all love the Dodgers.
We all love this **** team.
We're right with you.
Dodgers UK Chris Padilla.
Kelly Eric, stop bringing in you.
Me, I cringe every time I see him warm up.
Um, Kelly, we got a Mani Bhai's or Kelly Jamie Anybody but Jansen, Russell, Martin for closer, Reuben Russell, Martin for closer.
And now that is not really a dis to Kenley Jansen at this point.
Because Russell Moore I was disappointed the other night when they didn't bring in Russell Martin, but never never cruising Martin Rudy Gloria's aureus is interesting because aureus, you wonder.
Hey, where do they are they gonna value keeping him as that in that extended relief role? Or or do they want to see him as a guy? Trust me, if the situation presents itself, Julio Horace is a guy that has lights out stuff, and he has postseason experience.
All this talk about Felipe Vasquez.
Lucky's pitch 10 innings in August.
Also, he's pitched you and I all you folks, all you Dodger fans out there, you pitch Maur innings in the postseason and Philippe a basket.
So don't underestimate the level of experience that Julio Urias has gained the last couple years and also trickles down.
There's a residual effect with experience that Cody Bellenger and Corey Seager all these young guys jog Peterson so that that experience and the postseason is going to come in handy.
Jim Ah Jansen is a problem.
Hey, Joe Kelly for closer from Edgar Steve Porter 5 30 The real Northern California Rosa Marin started the night and Jansen finishes.
Rudy, tell us the last time Jansen had a clean inning, I would have.
Um, yeah, it was, Ah, couple couple starts ago.
He had a 123 but it wasn't a in Arizona thinking.
Had a cleaning lady.
You have to look that up.
But the fact that we have Toa kind of kind of dig deep like that is not good with the daughters again.
220 home runs at Dodgers Stadium the previous high was 2000 was 20 was 214 last year.
So no other reason.
Get that home field advantage.
Maybe Jansson comes around when it counts in October.
Robert Romero that, Ah, that is what we'd all like to see we'd all like to see.
And you never know.
Maybe he gets high because that is the ebbs and flows off the bullpen.
Some guys have good years.
Some guys have bad years.
Look, we got Brandon Morrow in his best year.
And then look, ever since he hasn't hasn't fared very well, look att Giles in 2017 postseason.
Look at Kimbrel.
Some guys struggle and let me look at Edwin Diaz this year.
The bullpen is a volatile position, and, ah, that would be mean.
That would be best case scenario, and that's what everyone's hoping for.
But Kenley Jansen? There's just a vibe out there that it just feels like what can go wrong will go wrong when he's on the mound sometimes.
But I did like the fact that he did induce that soft contact with the slider, and if he can manage to get out that way, that's something that ah, that's encouraging.
But But here we go.
Last clean inning for Kenley Jansen.
Um, was at Atlanta.
That was the loss at Atlanta.
When when he had, um he pitched one inning and ah, one.
Anyone strikeouts? So one anyone started.
That was the last clean inning for Kenley Jansen.
So No, no, the last cleaning was that.
Like I said, it was at Arizona yet Arizona He That was the one.
He had one inning, no hits, no runs, no earned runs and two strikeouts.
So, look, you're not wrong for feeling that way because he's kind of made us feel feel that way, but But he needs to put it together on a night in night out basis.
Sal er got out of a big jam in the eighth from Jeffrey A Geary. He did.
Seller, if you look it Ah! If you look at that was the bottom of the nose.
The top of the seventh right now that was a top of the top of the seventh, the top of the eighth, and you're right ks.
Casey Sadler came in and has a top of the eight.
He got the first out, got tap you to fly out, and then he got story story.
God, Then he gets into a little bit of trouble.
He got into a little bit of trouble.
Um, he walks, make McMahon, Alonso doubled, and, um and then, you know, it gives it the single black man than this single toe.
Coronado put runners on first and third with two outs, but then he got that ground out, so that was, um, my nose mixed up, but yeah, Casey, Sally got out of that jam.
Give those two hits.
We got that fly out to center, got that fly out toe to deep right center.
And that was big because that was a turning point.
That point the game was only four to.
So Casey Saller came in.
He battles out there.
Definitely battles out there.
And he's got some some nice stuff.
A guy who who was trying to trying to work his way into that postseason bullpen.
So Tapia, Joe Kelly needs to close, and Kenley can be a set up man.
I think that might be the natural progression.
Pro, Whatever Jansen comes out makes me nervous.
Yeah, he does. He does.
I went to last night's game.
It was great seeing a lot of home runs from the Dodgers.
You went to that offensive outpouring that wasn't out.
That was just a firework show last night at Dodger Stadium.
Just homeruns flying out.
Cody Ballenger, the hit number 43.
Gotta love that.
Ricardo Kelly looks defeated as he's walking to the mound before the first pitch.
I think there's definitely something to that.
He definitely has a demeanor that's not the same.
The same demeanor that we saw when you heard California love out there.
And you just know this game's a rat, that this game is in the books.
Like Chick Hearn says.
You know what the game is in the fridge.
Aerator lights are out.
Jello jiggle in Butter's getting hard.
That's how it was when Kenley Jansen was coming out.
Now it's Hey, every out.
You're just sweating bullets like you said before, and you're definitely right on there.
But Louise Urbina checking in from Jacksonville, Florida and there's Hurricane doesn't blow his heart as chance.
And right now, Louise got me dead over here.
Ben Russell Martin, 00 e. R.
A. For the closer Ella Well, Pat.
I'm done with blaming Kenley Jansen for not being able to perform anymore.
It's on Freeman and Roberts for not shoring up the pen at the deadline and not removing Kenley from the closer role.
Pat, look, I'm a guy.
I was refreshing, Refreshing.
I called F five season because you're always refreshing to see who's going to get that, who the doctors were gonna pick up.
They didn't get anyone, and it was It was disappointing.
But, hey, we're going to see their ultimately three minute company.
They're gonna have to answer for that in the post season if his bullpen gets rock in the postseason.
Even in the world Siris.
If they get all the way back and they get rock, trust me.
There's going to be hell to pay for this regime.
But look, don't underestimate Joe Kelly.
In August 10 innings a to 70 are a 12 K's.
We saw what he did last year and the Dodgers they are gonna be having.
They have a they have great depth with throwing starting pitchers.
They can give you extended innings.
Julio Urias, a Miss Bats guy, Tony Gonsouland, Dustin May, once he starts to harness.
That, by the way, is Dustin May.
My man takes one off his dome and he wants to get back in there.
So I still have hope for this bullpen.
And Kenley Jansen can get right then.
If not, we do need a contingency plan.
And trust me, they have to be working on that right now.
Whether that's put him in that eighth inning roll, that's something that, hey, you will get those outs.
And then imagine Joe Kelly in that ninth inning.
Imagine Julio Urias.
Imagine if it's Game six and the Dodgers can close it out.
Walker Baylor's rest.
Who knows? He's got the best up I know he didn't look his best yesterday, but Reuben Greg Tucker Baez to closer.
Raisa. What? L l Cool. Razor.
What up, Doug? Watching from both Boise, Idaho.
Now I saw that on Twitter.
You made that move. Congratulations.
But hey, guess what? You still got the net all hooked up in Boise so you can still rock with us here on Dodger Nation.
But congrats on the move, my man.
I heard Boise is a really cool place.
You check out a Boise State game and check out that blue turf, this Smurf turf her.
That's a great atmosphere.
Sadler is looking good, pitching like he wants to be on the playoff roster. Exactly.
That's what I was saying.
He battles out there and really didn't have the greatest time and Triple A.
But sometimes that's what happened.
You get guys that come up, they see the bright lights of the show.
They know it's there.
One shot and they bring it.
Last 30 games for Casey Saller a 2 to 1 e r A.
In 17 games, 20 innings pitched, 19 hits and 16 strikeouts.
So yes, like you guys were pointing out, you're showing Casey Saller some love you guys are you guys see him as a potential piece off that bullpen Moving forward if Ah Jansen is trash as usual from Lawrence.
Um, Jack Ramirez 70 to go.
Dodgers Good freaking win.
The bullpen is getting better.
Candid Perez Flora looking really good tonight, Lorenzo.
The Jansen will turn around 702 baby, The question we have to define what turning it around actually means actually means four.
Kenley Jansen I think there's a There's anyone who thinks that Kenley Jansen is going to be, Ah, 2017 Kenley Jansen. They're off their rockers.
That's not a that's not a possibility.
Don't see that happening.
If it does, trust me.
I would love to be wrong about that.
Well, I there are things that he can improve upon.
He can get more experience with that slider.
He can get better command with that cutter and, uh, and likes like you mentioned earlier, like you mentioned earlier.
It's about Ah, it's about It's also about Can he? Can he mentally be there to look like I revert to the quote by the great Tommy Lasorda.
He needs to not go out there and think he's gonna fail like Tommy, Lasorda said.
Pressure is a word that's misusing our vocabulary.
When you start thinking of pressure because you started thinking of failure, he needs to go out there and not think of failure.
Just go out there and pitch, and like you mentioned earlier, you just get that feeling that he's starting to feel the worst and he's afraid he's gonna blow a safe.
So I think that we can try toe get him, Optimize him any way we can.
And part of that is psychologically, um, here we go back to the comments here. Jansson.
Thanks for what you did, but no.
Jim, Um, here we g o we got Mr Gonzalez.
It's too late for Jansen.
We need we need home field advantage.
I think that it is paramount.
I think that I think that the doctor's got home field advantage to It's another way of this team.
Say, Hey, we've lost back to back world Siris.
But we are doing every single thing in our power to end that 31 year drought and by getting home field advantage throughout.
That's the Dodgers sending another message that they're doing that.
Yes, the postseason in Major League Baseball is a crapshoot.
Giants won three World Series.
Of course, like the worlds that could be fluky.
And the Giants proved that.
Okay, look at the 2006 Cardinal's teams can catch fire.
Look at the 97 Marlin.
Major League Baseball is.
That's why I love this sport because it's a sport.
It's not like the n b A.
We're going to get Golden State versus the cat when they're in their prime.
This sport is tough to predict, and that's why you love it.
And the Dodgers, though if they are able to get that, are able to get that home field advantage.
That's another way of them showing that, Hey, we're doing everything we can to get that done. Pat.
If the daughters don't find an alternate to Jansen as a closer, we will be the 2001 Seattle Mariners.
That would hurt 2001 team 116 games.
Can Griffey junior got so I got my hat backwards.
The Knights to swing a major league baseball? So, um, that wouldn't be nice.
And also the Cubs don't forget that Cub Team has.
I think they want 100 19 games.
They didn't win the World Series either, so we don't want to be.
We don't wanna make history in the worst way.
Um, but you're right.
You're totally right.
We don't want to be a be a part of that club.
We don't wanna be a part of that club.
I want to be considered the Atlanta Braves the nineties.
You know why the Atlanta Braves the nineties won a World Series.
I want a world Siris, and then we can talk about multiple world Siris so always kind of kind of scratch my head with.
People try to compare it to those brays because, hey, those Ray's got it done before and we have yet to do that.
So don't worry, we're making our run. Here we go.
Three career hits.
Vasquez zero career hits.
I love that Austin.
You guys just always killing in the comments, man.
You guys always have me dead over here, and you're right.
Hey, I love that.
Oh, trust me, I would never even think twice.
I was saying, Hey, pirates, if you want to see Gavin looks a pirate's uniform, I hope you know how to use photo shop because that was never on the table.
May wasn't in consideration for me.
They should have taken cable Ruiz and some other guys.
But um um candid, that's not happening.
Avila's Congrats, Daughters on a great comeback win and let's go Dodgers.
Let's get that sweep the Rockies tomorrow, Austin three, said Jansen is trash.
Joe Kelly should be the closer Charles Hammell.
What up, Charles? How you doing, man? Think you said you're going to the game tonight, right? How did you enjoy the game? I hope, uh, aureus is just a little rusty.
He will find it after a few outings.
Look, he had a couple 123 innings tonight.
Did have the command on that Murphy blast, but I'm a big believer.
You saw He flashed that.
And also I just love what? Who you are is guys get on base.
This guy does not flinch.
You see his demeanor A cannoli chance could learn from that because he's out there.
Just dealing still doesn't let the runners on base get to one.
Jansen is a liability, though.
What does What does he have left and light me, please.
Look, you saw the Yankees game.
You saw that Yankee.
You saw the cutter that he got talking out with.
That was a nice cutter.
Had nice break on it, but that's just we saw a look.
Mehran are very He was still getting out up in his late 30.
So it's It's something you don't give up on him quite just yet.
I'm not ready to give on him on him just quite just yet.
Um, so I think that you still you still have to try to ride with him, mainly because one look at everything he's done for this franchise.
You don't throw a guy away like that, but he's having a rough stress with hitters heading to 67 against him since June 26.
You got a 4 18 Hey, you know, he's got a 4 80 arey since June 26 So he had a e r a of five in August.
So he's a guy that he has to turn around.
We're gonna talk about it till we're Dodger Blue in the face.
And that's to me is that is the reassuring thing is knowing that there's no way there's no way in hell that they're gonna let him.
They're gonna keep trying him out there if he fails even late September heading into the postseason.
So hey, Kenley Jansen, if you want to be apart, is magic.
You better find a way to get right, cause I'm telling you, this Dodger organization is not going to trust you in October unless you're getting out.
But, um but here we go.
We gotta How about looks debut yesterday.
It was fired two per five.
I thought, man, I did.
You guys think that was how well did you guys think that? Ah, that that was a home run by, um, by looks yesterday, I just Sometimes I'm good at knowing right off the bat that cracked the bat.
I know exactly when when they're getting home, right? I just kind of want a will.
Um, but here we go.
We got, uh, we got Isaiah.
Where is Rich Hill? So Rich Hill.
He's gonna face live hitters.
You're gonna face live hitters.
Um, on Friday, there, Friday or Saturday, he's gonna hit face live hitters.
He just said he tossed aside bullpen session on Monday without any issues.
So he's been out since since June 20 with that left forearm strain.
And lucky was nothing serious.
It wasn't Tommy John or Eighth like that.
So Friday or Saturday is gonna face life hitters did a bullpen session, And I'm telling you, Rich Hill, we want dig mountain back.
You know, You guys want him back.
You want to see him? His energy.
Everyone's for Duke Energy back.
I really want Rich Hills Energy back, um, to Meena to six postseason IRA.
I have him as my four start.
I'm a big believer in Rich Hill.
One. He's been there and done that, too.
He wants to get another payday for agent after this season, so I'm a big believer in Rich Hill.
Kenta is a huge liability.
Hey, can't out of the bullpen as a writing specialist, I believe in Kendall's stuff, but you're right.
Kent is a guy that that he also needs toe polish up his stuff.
Four. Postseason play begins.
Robert still believes in Jansen.
Jerry Mas Shawna Shepherd Jansen is not our closer.
We called spores up again.
Not sure about that one.
Go read, Go read Tim Rogers Peace about that about bringing Josh boards up, basically saying, Hey, he's got to come up, see what they got.
Ah, with Josh Sports and with the pitching depth, you don't know what they're gonna dio with Hun Jin Ryu with, uh, with our starters with the 100 you may be getting some rest.
Maybe Kershaw might get some rest, so maybe throw him into that bullpen set Gonsouland Maysam start.
So, really, it's just about adding pitching depth for the stretch run here.
Charles Louise Dodgers solos.
Maho is por ciento I love it.
Dave Roberts seems to trust Jansen.
Way too much punk as Joey.
66 He got Shook.
A old Broxton singer.
Oh, Big a hole, Broxton, Man.
Hey, how's he doing these days, my man? Love a challenge.
70 to Vegas from Paul Pat.
Tired of watching Roberts mug when Kenley is struggling on the mound like he can't do anything about it? Hey, it is a part of the process.
Would you rather see him? Look, they can't take the bubble wrap off him now They have to see what they can get with Kenley Jansen.
Like I'm saying, if Kelly Jazz you're closer, it's like having a big, sparkly 20 bedroom mansion with a pool, a game room, indoor movie theater, all that cool stuff, a bowling alley, but no lock on the front door.
We need a lock to close it down.
And Kenley Jansen appears to not be assuming that role based on you guys tonight.
The consensus is that Kenley Jansen not getting it done, but, um ah, but it's unfair.
I mean, Look, this guy's third all time in postseason safe.
16 postseason saved.
So he has done a lot for the Dodgers.
But, hey, what have you done for me lately, right? You're only as good as your last pitch. Last outing.
I'm a blip. Big believer in that Charles.
Jimmy Garcia is still garbage, and we talked all about that. Doug Flynn.
Denver Dough will be at dot Your stadium gether tomorrow.
Doug, My man Doug slain from Denver.
You fly in for the game.
I like it. You're you're going against your Rockies.
You're going against Iraqi from your hometown.
You enjoy it. Dodger Stadium.
You never know what could happen. 12.
Walk off this year.
I hope you get another one.
Dodgers to use Kelly Too close.
They want a chance that when the world Siris Tina G men can't keep blaming Kenley.
If Roberts keeps on using him, it's on Roberts now to say it's on Roberts.
Yes, Roberts is the figurehead.
Dave Roberts is going to take the heat, but trust me, it is a collective effort with the front office, and they're saying to themselves, Hey, we have to give him the reps.
We have to see if you can develop a slider.
It was a five to lead.
The daughters had a five to lead.
If it's a 2 to 1 lead tonight, he comes and he blows it.
That's a different story, but they have to see what they can get with Kenley before they make the next move and look his last starting.
He had a he had a clean any against Arizona.
Um, before So, um, just make Give me the bat boy and stay out of the pan. Eric.
The next time I see you, me Garcia, it better be on a milk carton.
You guys always just so cruel, man. But I love it.
Don't hold back.
This is This show is for that kind of stuff.
Get out your thoughts.
Whatever it is, Charles, it's the front office not wanting their 1918 million to go to waste.
I think that's a factor.
There's no question the investment they haven't Kenley Jansen is definitely a reason.
Also, look, this is ah, organization that takes care of players that have done great things for them, and Kenley Jansen is a big part of this Dodger history, whether you like it or not. Kenley Jansen.
It will be, you know, the career leader in saves for a long time and a record that probably will not get broken.
So that's something to consider.
But give it a couple weeks.
If he's still, if he's still pitching like he is, if he looks like he's not that guy, he will not trust me. Mark my words.
Kenley Jansen is pitching like he is right now.
Come the postseason.
He will not be depended upon to get those outs, and Dave Roberts is doing everything He can keep his confidence up and keep the morale up with Kenley Jansen, but they moves will be made if needed.
Sean looks is going to be great, no question about it.
He's a superstar, a superstar in the making.
Pat Mats and Jimmy is short for You mean I'm still considered an MLB player? That Matt's You're too much.
I t Kevin Durant.
Leadoff luck should be an everyday thing.
Look that somebody considered.
But I think Alex Verdugo comes back and he assumes that role you put looks a little closer to that, You know that.
That's 678 whole suitcase.
What he can do down there where we got, um, Sean, Good for Marin.
Maybe this game will Will quiet his haters for a minute.
Healthy gets too many haters.
I think that that Russell Martin is a guy that gets a lot of love out there.
Repping the 661 John Isles.
What? John Isles.
How you doing, man? Jim, I hope you figures it out clean, too.
It's been rough watching their start.
Greg's gotta Jansen is out of options. Sorry.
Can't send him down.
Ride Yankees and Astros.
They're going to do everything possible to get home field advantage.
The world, Siris especially.
It's against us.
I believe we can get home field advantage.
Me too, Fernando. Go Dodgers.
I'm gonna be a Dodger Stadium and boo everytime Jansen comes out of the pan.
Hey, you pay for the ticket.
You can boo if you want.
That's my stance on that.
I don't always boot unless it's a giant.
I booed the Giants every single time or the Red Sox.
But hey, it's your ticket. You're freed.
Abou Let him have it.
If you want? Um, it's a beautiful day for a ballgame, Pat.
I'll take who are the S F Giants for 100 hashtag eliminated? Exactly.
But by a member of that cute little run they went on in the mid season.
That was so adorable.
Now you miss your opportunity to get some prospects.
Farhan, how's it up there up in San Fran? I love it, Dodger for life, right, Charles? He's not gonna lose the job forever.
That is his dream job right now.
And why would he jeopardize it? Just because fans think so? I don't think so.
L a well, in Orlando, Florida in the house.
Hurricane Dorian doesn't stop us from cheering for the Dodgers East Coast Dodger fans all right, as d Dodger, um, that, uh, that guy's buds with FRG What? SD Dodger.

Give him an easy A.
Ah, we got dope.
Kelly is so soft.
Jansen can't be that elite closer again.
Everyone to have a little moment.
Silence! Holy! You know her, Say a little prayer.
Stevie Wonder could hit it off of Jansen these days.
And you know, you just always bring my love of a man.
Well, your thoughts on Gavin loves my thoughts on Gavin.
Lux is like I said, he's a guy.
The moments not too big form.
He's rapidly ascended.
Went from Tulsa all the way to Okay, See, it was just a matter of time.
I mean, he was just crushing it in the minors, and now we start to hit for power.
First year, seven home runs this year.
26 between double and Triple A.
He's got that nice stroke through the zone.
Quick hands, quick adjustments, quick eyes.
And then he's a big Duits six to add £40 of muscle.
I'm a big fan of of Gavin Lux.
I really I'm so excited for the future off this Dodger nucleus, but green from Mexico.
We got props to Fergie.
He was on a contract.
Not going to just throw that money away anyway.
Um, week SD dodgy should live in the hitters we should face live hitters were wakes.
That's something to hey, facing live hitters is something that is something he could benefit from.
Just takes him out of his mind.
Takes him out of that situation because, you know, he doesn't want that backlash.
He doesn't want the headlines.
He doesn't want social media blowing up about him.
And and I think I think I think you're totally right on that.
Um oh, you're right.
The mic volume was down like all day. My bad.
How about that, Mike? Volume was down.
