Speaking of Joe Kelly, his appeal is STILL pending. After being pushed back to Monday, the results have yet to come out from MLB. Kelly is likely looking at sitting out a few games regardless, but the number of games is what is in question.

  1. Ok, everybody is playing badly. Some things Roberts has to change. Many things the players need to do, like really play ball. The Dodger players don’t seem to want it. It’s like there’s some kind of resentment, jealousy. The short spring season(if you want to call it that) the Dodgers looked great, what happened? Everybody is at fault. I’m a Dodger fan and it’s forever but there are times where you just get sick of it.

  2. Two promising rallies early on and two easy ground ball DPs by last year’s MVP to end the inning. It is beginning to look like the Dodger players believed all that pre season hype and think all they need to do is show up on the field and victory will be theirs
    Such an array of horrendous batting averages. And a season shaping up as how can a game be lost. Looks like starting pitching, relief pitching, not hitting with men on base ( and sometimes not hitting at all), and defense each take their turns in ensuring defeat
    A telltale sign of a not so great team is to get beat by mediocre pitchers. That seems to be the new norm
    This was supposed to be THE year but if Bellinger and Muncy don’t start hitting….( well, you all end this sentence in your own words )
