  1. $1.5 BILLION DOLLARS and we still leave runners stranded. How do you find consistency in a lopsided lineup? Betts, Ohtani, Freeman and then up and down, pick and choose. Oh yeah, I forgot Smith and Teoscar. Hmmm. Will is not a power hitter. He looks at too many strikes with the bat on his shoulder. Teoscar strikes out. A lot. Outman, Barnes, Taylor need to be in OKC. Max? Lose the SPARE TIRE ALREADY! Miguel needs to be at SS, Mookie at 2B, Lux traded somewhere before the league figures it out. Kike at 3B. And separate the MVPs at the top of the lineup. Get Mookie out of his other jobs so he can focus on his primary position with the Los Angeles Dodgers!

    1. Wow!!! Couldn’t say it better myself. And I repeat over and over, pitching is the key and getting rid of Robert’s along with the above mentioned ( Muncy, Lux) as well.
