    I keep waiting for will smith to come down to earth a little but he's got a great OBP (in limited ABs) which would be nice in front of the heart of the order as well.
    Yeah, so I don't think we're too far off on how we see seager. You see him as a 25-30 home run guy, whereas I see him more as a 30-35 home run guy. In either case though, that's still a decent amount of power. Will Smith on the other hand has tremendous power. I'm interested to see how he reacts once he goes into a slump, because it will happen. I think he'll be fine though because I think he's successful because of his approach at the plate.

    Yeah, we arenít too far off in how we see seager imo. I just think 35+ homeruns per year is borderline elite territory and I just donít think he has elite power. For example, this is only the 2nd time in Mike trouts career that heís been over 40+ home runs and heís hit above 35 only two other times. Seager might hit in the low 30s for homeruns but I donít think his average season will be there imo.

    I kinda see seager as similar to another former dodger, a left handed version of nomar garciapara (the Boston version, before the injuries). When healthy heís a .300 hitter, .360+ OBP, 25-30 homeruns, always near league lead in doubles, keeps Ks down and walks up. Funny, garciapara was also a guy that likes to swing at first pitch like seager does. I think seager has the potential to be better than garciapara if he stays healthy but unfortunately injuries have defined Seagers career so far.

    Tonight's lineup is so perfect I can cry. It's damn good to see 2017, Chris Taylor, back. Bring up Lux, and maybe they can just overpower everyone with the bat and skate by with the pen this October.

    Crazy to think that we could add lux to this group.. the kids in the dodgers farm are so deep with talent, it's ridiculous. I did think Ruiz might get called up at some point but now that smith is a regular they may not.

    Ruiz broke a finger maybe two and is out for the remainder of the season.

    It sounds like they're not going to bring Lux up to play in September, just to hang out.

    Seeing that Muncy is at 32 homers it begs the question- has there been two lefties on the same team with 40 homers? Or was that answered in my last question?

    That's a fair point about trout. I think Seager has a bit more power than Nomar, but I think overall the comparison is pretty apt.

    MLB needs a limit on pitching changes.
