    You're right though Muncy, J Turner, Cody are not hitting yet and they have no closer but I think you're wrong about Seager he'll come around. 231 15 35 is not bad before the all star break. BTW I have been a Dodger fan since Walter Austin was the manager.
    Trust me I bleed Dodger blue
    You think he's been not bad this year? His numbers have collapsed. Worst ba/obp/slug of his career and dramatic drops in all of them

    Only 72 games. LMAO!!!!. Thats basically half the season! No hes not going to turn around and magically be a .300 hitter this year. Hes just not. It was a stupid deal for Texas. Everyone knew it and now its proving itself. Theres a reason why the Dodgers had no intention of giving him that kind of money. Hes not worth it.

    The thing is he plays half of his games in a complete hitters park. Hes having the worst year of his career in the easiest stadium hes ever going to play in. And yes his numbers stink. Plus he was hurt every other year for some stupid reason. Hea just not a guy worth that kind of money.

    I'm not saying you write off his career. But you made it sound like he was having an ok season. By his standards, he's been dismal.

    Nothing about his career warranted the kind of money he got from Texas. And that's a much bigger sample size than 72 games.

    His first couple of seasons were solid and included a RoY award (deservedly so). Didn't hurt that he was playing on a WS caliber team then too.

    Little dust-up in Toronto last night with the Red Sox. Didn't think the pitch that hit Kirk was too bad. But I have no problem if those two teams want to beat each other up. LOL

    This must be the first time anyone has even brought up Corey Seager this year. Dodgers rolled on without him, as most expected. Trea Turner has been real good. Not as much power as Seager, but better overall #s.

    Everyone knew it was an overpay, but C Seager plays a premium position (SS) and was in what should be his prime. He also came up big in the 2020 NLCS and WS, he is a winner.

    The new stadium in Texas(Globe Life Field) is not as much of a hitters park as the previous stadium (GL Field at Arlington). It is actually neutral this season. Dodgers Stadium is actually a better hitters park per Baseball Ref this year.


    I wouldn't be surprised if he has some kind of small nagging injury. Also he is trying to do to much. His Fly Ball % is way up, LD and GB is down.. Changing leagues can also make a difference, so players take a whole year to figure it out.

    If he keep playing at his current pace, he will actually hit a career high in HRs. But that alone is not worth $33 mil per.

    I am guessing he turns it around eventually. His older brother was able to hit for power into his early 30s.

    Royals move Santana for prospects. Don't stop there. Benintendi(Blue Jays ?), Michael Taylor, Greinke , Merrifield. I'd say Salvy too, but I don't think they will do that.

    Blow the whole goddamn thing up. I'm ready to see the young guys.

    No doubt they trade some of those guys. They aren’t winning with them so might as well get something of value for them.

    I keep hearing Benintendi's name as a potential OF with the Yankees. Wouldn't be the worst choice, but certainly not my first choice.

    I believe he hit a home run.

    Kiermaier gave the Blue Jays a nice Canada Day present yesterday, but that's okay - first time for the Blue Jays at home on Canada Day since 2019, so y'all deserved a win. That photo was before the game, eh? I do remember them doing an on field interview just before the game and there was a crack in the roof, and then later on it was fully open. I still remember when I went there and the roof was closed while I was outside and I wanted to see them open the roof and i figured it would be loud and so I'd know when to go look, but by the time I got to the seats it was already open!
