    Giants have about the same remaining schedule as us but we play down to the under .500 teams. We need to sweep the Rockies and Dbacks and win 2/3 against the Padres, Brewers and Reds. If not we will be looking @ playing in the WC game. A game that is NO lock that we will win. Depends if the offense decides to show up that day.
    It's never a lock, but that's how the WC scenario is set up. I guarantee you no one is looking forward to facing us in that game and if the giants manage to hold onto the division, I guarantee you that they want no part of us.

Giants have a tough week next week and ours is easier but we always take bad teams for granted and we end up losing games, we shouldn't be losing.
    The giants by no means have a safe lead. They might manage to hold on, but they could just as easily end up losing the division by a couple of games

    Another nice win! Jansen has been lights out after struggling early on after the break.

    Ever since he was booed he has been lights out other than 1-2 games max. He is looking somewhat his old self when he was dominant. Hope he keeps it because we are going to need him to come through when it matters. Maybe

    Cody needs to get booed out of Dodger stadium too. Then maybe he will wake up from his 0-28 slump or however bad it is. But let's just hope that Cody is saving all his good games for the postseason. If he struggles the rest of the year Dodgers may try trading him while he still has some value. And don't blame his injury. He has been struggling since the 2nd half of his MVP season. He got lucky last year was only 60 games or else he would have similar stats he has now.

    That's highly unlikely that he would've had similar numbers last year to this year if it was longer and it's kind of an absurd idea. First, He's only had 73 more at bats this year than last...so you're saying with an additional 73 more at bats last year, he would've dropped from a .239 average to a .158??? An 80-pt drop in a measly 73 at bats??? He also had 3 more homers last year than right now and only 3 fewer RBIs. That is to say that in fewer at bats, he outperformed last year what he's doing now and by a considerable amount so to say that he would be having similar stats is beyond crazy and the data show this assertion to be way off. It's easy to forget, but Bellinger has still missed a ton of games this year and even if he plays the rest of the way, he will still end up having missed something between 50-60 games or about at least a third of the season.

    And no, you absolutely do not trade Bellinger. That's beyond silly and you will get called on this many times over. The dude is 25 yrs old. He won ROY and is the last player to win an MVP in a full season. He hit .267 is rookie year, .260 the following year, .305 the year after, and .239 last year...to say not to blame the injuries in a year where he has had so many of them is again absurd because this year is clearly an anomaly not just to last year but to the previous 3 before it...and when the season started he didn't look any different than his usual self. Didn't he hit about half of his homers that he has this season prior to getting hurt? He also hit one that ended up costing the Dodgers the game because Turner made a massive goof on the bases on opening day (which didnt end up getting recorded as a homer). He was on pace for his typical season up until he got hurt. He goes down with a bunch of injuries and puts up an anomaly season and we're supposed to trade a player who is one of the best in the entire league because of a bad season where he's been hurt??? That is beyond ridiculous. What his numbers show, in their most modest interpretation, is that he's an above average hitter who can hit for good to high-end power (can give you about 25-45 homers a year) while racking up about 75-100-plus RBIs. You don't trade a player who can do that at 25 after he's put up a bad season while being hurt and missing a massive chunk of it. That's ignoring his speed and great defense. Thank god you're not the GM. Guaranteed that everyone on this roster would be gone and that we wouldnt have sniffed the playoffs for many years now.

    This dude was calling for Jansen's head just a few weeks ago lol. The one thing that gives me hope that Bellinger will turn it around this season is that Lamar has given up on him and since he's usually wrong that's a great sign that the old Bellinger is right around the corner lol

    Lol. Honestly, I think that’s why he’s trolling on Bellinger so hard. He thinks it’s the only thing he can justifiably say he’s been right about all year so he’s keying in on it.

    He’s just repeating things he hears elsewhere and it doesn’t have teeth.

    Chris Davis comps? I know Molly Knight made that comparison for one, but she wasn’t saying he has that career trajectory, just that he hit a ton of bombs, then ran into an 0-54 slump and couldn’t hit anymore. He also didn’t have surgery and lose 15-20lbs.

    Also, Kenley getting booed didn’t change him. Kenley got booed because of the results, and now he’s getting cheered… because the results. He had a bad run, it’s over. Lamar is just trying to justify all his criticisms by suggesting booing your players has a positive impact… it doesn’t.

    Lastly, I really want to see what he has to say about Bellinger “struggling” in the second half of 2019.

    Yeah, that's another weird one. His play dropped from an all-time level performance, but it's odd to characterize it as struggling.

    Right, he dropped from like Untouchable in the MVP convo to, essentially, there being an MVP convo.

    It was his first half that won the award for him, but his second half was still >.900 OPS on its own.

    Yeah, it's just stunning the things this dude says sometimes.
