I only post things I think might be of some interest to Dodger fans. I hope that doesn't offend. BTW
6 more Dodger home runs tonight. Pirate pitching staff sucks

Machado > Crawford

It's not like I'm HAPPY about this, but I doubt they keep him long term, given Turner and Seager (though maybe they push Turner elsewhere and sign Manny long term). But it sure is a swing for the fences. Over the last 30 (30!!!) years they've acquired a lot of big games (ManRam, Nomar, Hanley, Gonzo, Darvish), and it's not paid off in October yet. I remain ever resolute: Beat L.A.

Machado has hands of stone & his bat is good but not good enough to make up for his fielding deficiencies. In other words he couldn't carry Crawford's jock strap.

Welp, let's just hand the Dodgers the trophy right now.

Machado is a half season rental. Seager will be back next season. Solid baseball move.

Seager is better than Crawford.

BTW, I called the Dodgers would be in first in the West by the all-star break, and there they are.

When Seager is a multiple all star, gold glove and WS winner, let's revisit this idea.

I blame the Diamondbacks.

Hmmmm Hands of stone? 3 gold gloves.

At 3rd base, he's a terrible shortstop. -1.3 dWAR and still almost half the season to go.

from ESPN: If there's one possible negative here, it's the defensive metrics and reports of Machado's defense at shortstop. While he won two Gold Gloves at third base, he's at minus-19 defensive runs saved, worst among shortstops. Taylor, meanwhile, has played a solid shortstop (plus-3 DRS). Still, the upgrade at the plate outweighs some of the potential range issues. He also has a big home/road split this year, with a 1.140 OPS at home/.797 on the road, with 17 of his 24 home runs at Camden Yards.

Interesting. I wonder how many more runs he's worth offensively over Taylor.

If a guy is good at 3B but bad at SS, that would indicate that "hands" are not the problem so much as "range."

He's not only going to play ss. Turner can play first with Muncie at second. He can also play third when Turner takes days off to rest his wrist.

I think you're right about the range issue. He's just plain slow. He's rated #47 out of 48 shortstops for speed. Incidentally, Seager isn't exactly a speed demon either at #45. Brandon Crawford is #46, obviously slowed down by his hair.

Apparently Manny hasn't read the articles. He has made two remarkable plays in the hole. So much for hands of stone. BTW where would the Dodgers be this season without Matt Kemp and mad max?

Beyond Thunderdome, that's where they'd be.

Manny helps Dodgers win another game. This time with his legs and base running mojo.

Kershaw's back! 7 2/3 6 hit. 8 strikeouts. 3 walks and a 2 run single. Atta boy Clayton!

DDodger's going for The sweep run into a buzzsaw. Down to their last strike, Taylor d singles then Manny singles him home.

Another strong 6 from Kershaw and plenty of run support - 21 runs and 7 HOME RUNS! Brian Dozier looks like a good pickup. Thank you Giants!

My next post on this thread will be when the Dodgers win the World Series. Everything else is irrelevant. 1988 has been way too long ago.

I almost want the dodgers to win the WS at this point. It is pathetic. Like USC being an 8-4 team. Just no excuses.

Wow the haters are coming out. Nice to see you won't be posting. Perhaps you've never played the game. It's an exciting race and many of us can appreciate it.

I grew up listening to Vin on a small transistor radio. The rivalry was instilled at an early age. It became intense after that dip shot Marichal took his bat to Roseboro

Roberts is such a stupid dipshot manager. He brings back Baez, puts him in the 7th with a two run lead and he promtly gives up 4 runs. Dodgers need to replace him. Terrible manager!

I went to sleep early and missed the game last night. It was a pleasant surprise to wake up to this result. Seems like it was another classic MadBum vs Kershaw matchup. Go Giants! Beat LA!
