Manage episode 301947911 series 2425921
Things go off the rails early for Clint, Brook, and Doug. After another Dodgers loss in St. Louis, everyone quickly turned to questioning the lineup decisions of Dave Roberts after seeing the manager turn in a lineup card featuring Cody Bellinger, Steven Souza, Billy McKinney, and (the slugger of the group) Austin Barnes.
Belli's season-plus-long slump continued with another 0-4 game and we discuss whether continuing to put him in the lineup like this could have long-lasting effects on his mental state and career. Plus, we're back on the #freemattbeaty talk which has suddenly become a lot louder amongst fans.
Now sitting 2.5 games behind the Giants, the Dodgers are flat out running out of time to capture that 9th straight NL West crown. No longer being in control of their own destiny, is it time for the team and all of us to keep one eye out on the Wild Card game? With that the guys make their choice for who starts the one-and-done Wild Card game at Dodger Stadium.
Somewhat staying on the Wild Card topic, the Padres come to town this weekend and Brook gets one of his wishes answered. San Diego starter Chris Paddack is finally starting against LA. We make our predictions for the NL West showdown.
Plus we read fan thoughts on what's wrong with Cody Bellinger.
