  1. I did not come away from Phoenix at all confidant in what Friedman has assembled. You play like you practice and the practice was mediocre as a whole. “It’s early. No urgency” I’m afraid will be the norm as last year when we made it by one game. Yes, every game matters. game #163 as does game #1 or #33 or #50.

    • Exactly. Just like that free throw 2 minutes into the game is as important as one with 30 seconds left.

    • The “It’s early. No urgency” mantra is because most of the “so-called experts” suggest the NL-West is the Dodgers to lose, all of the other teams are in rebuild mode, have taken a step backwards from the Dodgers. This kind of thinking is dangerous! IF the Dodgers struggle out of the gate, this will give confidence to the Rockies, Padres, D-Backs, and Giants. Dodgers, just bury the NL-West!

      • Robin, did you watch last night’s game where the Dodgers AGAINstruck out 15 times. I mean, I heard the announcers say that Roberts wants to see better approaches from players when they have 2 strikes on them but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….they performed in the exact opposite way of what he was talking about. I do not like the looks of this team right now, and sorry to say but nothing is a lock.

  2. hmmm, is baseball just a seasonal thing? I thought to be into sports you had to be in shape and train the same way the year around so that you remain competitive ….. you should be…….lots of players look like they have never seen a baseball before……their paycheck should be based on how they produce, not how good they think they are
