  1. The Dodger bats went cold because neither Betts nor Taylor (who was on fire) were in the line up. When Taylor was inserted late, he went for JT who was on something like a 12 game hit streak. You would not – and could not – have done anything different if you wanted to deliberately cool them off. I mean this isn’t brain surgery.

    The team does this every year to keep people healthy and fresh without success. Perhaps letting your best players play, get some rhythm, and build some momentum for the playoffs might be in order.

    1. And of course these are a collaborative efforts as far as lineup decisions go by Roberts and Andy, at least they appear to be. But it is a puzzle as to why Betts and CT3 were not in lineup because we as re seeing only a 60 g as me season, and it’s not as if those 2 were getting time off ne as r end of a162 game season

  2. Bench the hot hitters? Why? Not that it matters, but we still haven’t won the division and the A’s are coming to town. Man, these are some of the reasons why it’s so hard to get behind a guy like Dave Roberts. Rally killer.

    1. I feel same way as far as Roberts and his handling of lineups. I mean,we’re only talking about a 60 game season and like you, Ralph, I find it tough to get behind Roberts when I see these same things on almost on a game to game basis.

  3. Time to load up the Brinks truck and head over to Bochy’s house. Need a new manager

  4. Folks what do ya think is the over-under as to how many innings Roberts allows May to pitch in tonights game, even if his pitch count is reasonable and he has the team in the game? My guess is as per usual, I got to take the under, and say under 5. After all, we have pretty much seen how Roberts has the BP pitch the bulk of the innings almost every night. That may likely catch up to Dodgers during the Post Season at some point.

    1. Paul I have to say I didn’t blame Roberts for pulling May last night after 5. The result in the game was OK but May made it look hard. He’s got great stuff but, IMO, he’s still a long way from a finished product and presently the Dodgers 5th best starting option.
