Post-Game 65 Thread: Free Fallin'

Yes, we've used this before.


Sure, we can sweep the sucky teams. And if they're slightly better than that, we can maybe win one game.

But after failing to show any offense this weekend in San Francisco (where we could only win the Clayton Kershaw-started game), we sailed on to Arizona, and laid another offensive turd in the desert.

This marks the third straight game where we have out-hit the opponent, but lost the game. More evidence that the lineups aren't working, especially after going 0-for-11 with RISP in today's contest. Credit Corey Seager for a fifth-inning solo HR, but that's about it; Mike Bolsinger couldn't last five innings, and former Dodger Zack Greinke largely shut us down over seven frames. Now six games behind in the NL West, we look to be irrelevant by the All-Star Break.

That game was so frustrating, I can't even put it into words.

I'm more bored than actively angry. They need some sort of dumb totem like the bananas or the bubbles to help shake out of the offensive funk.

Hideo Nomo said...

Or, you know, just...hit better.

But we are hitting, just not timely enough.

Buster lonely has a piece on how the dodgers have nice bats but no breakout hitters that are feared. We need Gary Sheffield in his prime. It Manny.
