  1. How much faith can you have as Dodgers fan.? EVERY YEAR the same old one game they look great , then they go flat the next .I wish I were wrong and hope I am wrong but for some reason we can lately not get it going .I feel the Dodgers take some of the games going into the playoffs( somewhat lightly) then find themselves behind most of the time later in the game ,thus putting pressure on themselves only to go flat at the opportune time when needed ! The exception being the blowout to the Braves in Game 3.I know this sounds somewhat crazy ,maybe if possible they should just go play the game whatever…. happens ….happens .Hope the Dodgers make a great comeback, in which they are capable of DOING !

  2. See ya later, Dave! Time to go– oh yeah, I said that last year and the year before that

    1. Victor Gonzales has been way underused. DR is clueless bringing in Floro and McGee. As for Brusdar, he needs to develop more pitches. He is a right handed Aroldis Chapman and like Chapman, blows crucial games. Gonzales and Gonsolin make the most sense as relievers for what is left of this year. Remember, the Rays and Braves are successful this year with rookie pitching and proving again, great pitching defeats great hitting. At this time in the postseason, we do not have great pitching.

  3. Of course they’re done they aren’t meant to win a World Series for a very long time just accept the fact that the Dodgers are going to be one of those franchises. This is just the beginning, anyone who’s a young fan right now will be on deaths door when they finally win

  4. I don’t know what it takes to understand the Dodgers will not win with Roberts. We saw the Clippers with the same type of Coach. Doc Rivers had great teams too and couldn’t get it done. Both Doc and Dave are great interviewers maybe great with the vets but terrible managers when it comes to the fine points of getting their teams over the hump in the playoffs and WS. You have to admit batting 3 to 4 batters hovering around 200 or so is not all that great in a lineup. Both Kiki and Pederson hit now and then but overall the absolutely stink and neither is a good fielder. They have been horrible for years. Muncy might be entering that group as of late. Where’s Lux? So what if he was in a slump there’s no future with these poor hitters. They have a broken pen with Jansen and Baez both bad for years and are depending on a very overrated Buehler to be their ace along with grandpa Kershaw.

  5. Why all the gloom and doom? The team got off several good zingers about the Astros and Kelly got to make his funny face. Isn’t that what you wanted?
