  1. I personally would want Scherzer to start. He is the vet and would want him to be the pressure situation. B followed by U. If Hersh is available next. If they have to face SD all hands on deck if a one game playoff.

  2. I luv the guy, you don’t talk to Kersh when he’s pitching so don’t touch the guy. As dominant he is at this age Dodgers better sign the guy for least 2 option for 3 years at least $30 million each. They have a lot of players to pay coming up but money here is definitely no object. Go Dodgers

  3. I’m with Max Scherzer on this. If he hadn’t said something to Doc, then what’s next? “Hey Max, let me rub your back”. Doc should not put his hands on any player’s butt, period. That is just disgusting. This isn’t 2015, Doc should be aware of the cultural changes from #MeToo. MLB is a professional sports, baseball field is no different than an office. For those of you who disagree, do you want your boss to grab your butt in the office?
