    I love how those of us who remain objective are framed as wearing rose colored lenses, when the reality is that the rest of you are simply hypercritical...

    Let's take an objective look...

    * Current .646 winning percentage would stand as the 2nd best Dodgers record since coming to LA in 1958
    * In the 63 seasons since, this team is only the 5th in LA Dodgers history to put up 100 wins
    * Of the 5 LAD teams to win 100 games over the last 63 years, Friedman has put up 3 of them
    * We are 40-13 over the last 53 games
    * We are looking at our first batting champion since Tommy Davis did it in '62 and '63
    * We have 3 legitimate Cy Young candidates
    * We are tops in the NL in Runs Scored and have the Best Run Differential in baseball

    These criticisms that we should've somehow magically woken up 2 weeks ago, and whatever other incoherent nonsense, is mind-boggling.

    If we were 3 games back in any other season and went on a 40-13 run, we'd be in first place. It just so happens that the Giants have gone on an equally mind-boggling 39-14 run.

    Give credit where it is due. We've been killing it for 2 months and they've been doing just enough to stay on top. Just because they've been good doesn't mean we've been bad

They just like to complain. They've literally torn apart every facet of our team and just switch out to blame something or someone else. "The front office is crap and can't bring in any talent", "Roberts is lucky we're so talented", "this pitching is lucky the offense is bailing is out", "the offense is lucky the pitching is bailing us out", the bullpen is lucky our starters are baling us out", the starters are lucky the bullpen is bailing us". It would be funny if they didnt actually believe that nonsense. Even if we were fully healthy this would be an amazing season and it has been an amazing season (especially when we factor in all the injuries). It's bizarro world in here
    I honestly don't know why all the negativity. This team has had a historical run at the division. The best run of any Dodger team in history. The Giants are just that legit this year. It happens. The year that we should have won against the Cheaters was a year like the one the Giants are having.

    And no celebrating a miraculous win?! Come on guys.
    No. Cause we suck. I'm just being a realist here. We are not winning the WS because our offense sucks, our pitching sucks, our manager makes dumb decisions, and Freeman is an idiot. If it wasn't for all that we would have had 130 wins this year.

    Chris Taylor: .108/.167/.215 since August 27th
    Max Muncy: .176/.248/.412 since August 21st
    Cody Bellinger: .161/.238/.302 all season long
    Justin Turner: .225/.302/.364 since August 4th
    Pitcher's spot

    At least some of us are smart enough to be aware of how unimpressive a significant chunk of our lineup has been in the last several weeks. It's not exactly what you'd expect from a championship caliber team. Call it for what it is.

    Future Hall of Shamers:
    (1) B.A.L.C.O. Barroids (2) Mark McJuicer (3) Jose Chem-seco (4) Rafael Palmeiroids (5) Ken Chem-initi (6) Jason Gi-andro (7) Ryan Fraud (8) Muscle Melk (9) Woman-Ram (10) Shammy Sosa (11) Roger Clear-mens (12) A-Roid (13) Ryan HGHoward

    *Chris Taylor has been battling a neck injury in the second half of the season.

    *Thank goodness we have a roster that can mitigate the dry spells of some players by still being able to fill the other lineup spots with guys like Mookie, Trea, Seager, Smith, Pollock, Lux (who’s been great since coming back up), Pujols (against lefties). And that’s not even counting Beaty who’d be starting on a lot of MLB clubs.

    *Again - Despite the 4 that are guys scuffling, the Dodgers are 40-13 over the last 53 games. What more do you want?

    Exactly, this right here. It was such a great comeback win and all these dudes were doing was complaining so I had to lay into them about it. Like it was such an awesome win to experience and rather than everyone being happy these guys are ripping the team

    Exactly, the giants have a great year doesn't diminish our great year in the slightest. Two great teams having it out. That's amazing. This has honestly been one of the most fun seasons to watch.

    Yep, this right here. The Giants having a great year doesn't make our year any less great. If not for a historic amount of injuries to key guys, we would've likely shattered the all-time wins record in a season and still have a shot at making this be our best regular season ever.

    And yet we keep on racking up the Ws. That's how the season goes, you have some guys go cold and others get hot. If everyone were hot at the same time, we would end up scoring over 15 runs a game. You can find the sort of thing you posted on every roster and that's why depth is so important. The fact is that our guys have been doing great over that entire stretch

    After seeing these guys turn on Scherzer last night after him being absolutely insane since coming over, it became clear to me that they lack any perspective and simply react to whatever is in front of them. Doesn't matter how amazing someone is, as soon as this slip up "it's all over, they're done, send them out and trade them for whoever we can get".

    Betts, Seager, and T. Turner are really starting to do some damage. Our guys haven't had that much time together, but we're starting to look real scary at the top of the lineup. It's easy to forget, but Seager is one of the best players in the game and usually in the top 2-3 shortstops in the league when healthy (or at least in that discussion)

    Hopefully we’re getting healthy and we’ll be near all cylinders when the playoffs start
