Alright, Chase Utley is back! Wouldn't want to lose that veteran leadership in the playoffs!


We won some hard fought games. No doubt Utley's experience helped play a role. It's just that Roberts didn't realize the Astros and the racist Gurriel were reading Darvish like a book. If someone other than Darvish starts Game 7, we win it.

Darvish told Dave Roberts he was signing with the Cubs and said to him "My main goal is to beat the Dodgers."

(bleep) you Darvish. I hope you choke on bubblegum this time.

He already beat the Dodgers twice in the World Series. He needs to perform well to talk like this. He was the single biggest reason we lost the WS, I hope he doesn't fix his tipping and ends up out of their rotation. Bleep that guy.

Harold Reynolds said this morning on @MLBNetwork Matt Kemp has lost 41 LBS this off season on his way to losing 50 LBS


The fact that he had an extra 50 lbs on him to lose is ridiculous. I wonder how much muscle he's lost and how it will affect his power (if we end up keeping him).

Yeah, 50 pounds is outrageous.

Hosmer to the Padres. Eight years and over $140MM, though he gets over $100MM in the first 5 years, and an opt-out after the fifth year.

Some people are still in denial about this and blame it on Kershaw. This guy had the equivalent of 2 Bill Buckner moments.

Another reason why I didn't care if we re-signed him. Not only would we have to commit to him till his mid 30's but a lot of Dodger fans still haven't forgiven him for that blown WS.

Feels like we let a lot of quality pitching go this year; Darvish, Morrow, and now Watson. This year I think is going to be tougher to get to the playoffs.

I might not fit exactly into your characterization, but since I was skeptical of Darvish in the playoffs, I was not that disappointed.

I was, however, extremely disappointed with the almost universally acknowledged best pitcher in baseball, given a 4-0 lead, giving up four, and then with a 7-4 lead, giving up two more and having to leave after 4 2/3 innings; and the best reliever in baseball, in a save opportunity, giving up a ninth inning home run that completely changed the momentum of the series.

Your best are supposed to step up when it matters.

As with Tom Niedenfuer and Terry Forster, these are moments I will never forget.

I'm with you.
