  1. We need better leadership from Roberts Betts and Turner. The team went out of their strategy after getting guys on base, this is when they need to be reminded of what won them the last series. Hopefully there’s a meeting today. The Braves were terrible with RISP but ran into some bad pitches eventually, the Dodgers could’ve already had some runs on the board with small ball

  2. NEVER BETTER LEADERSHIP FROM ROBERTS. WHAT DO YOU WANT BETTS TO DO? EVEN TURNER CAN NOT GO AHEAD OF D.R. COLD DODGER BATS ARE A PROBLEM . THEY NEED TO BE WHAT WON THE LAST SERIES. HIRE A MANGER TO MANAGE D.R.

  3. Baseball is a team sport that requires each player to bring his A game to win. Self-efficacy is not something that Mookie or Turner can give to their fellow team members, but they can remind all of the guys how they got to the NLCS: something that I am sure they both do. Even Mookie, however, had offensive struggles of his own last night, and I do not believe for a minute that its because he lacks confidence or effort. Dodgers struggle against left handed pitching, always have; so, if possible, our roster should reflect Dodgers’ that can hit left handed pitching. (Is Hernandez our only Dodgers that can hit Lefties?) Not only were our bats ice cold but the ninth inning reminded us all just how much we need a reliable closer. I ask, why not give Graterol or Gonzalez a try? In the interim, I will continue to say, ” Let’s Go Dodgers!!!”
