The Jeckyll and Hyde Dodgers Return – A Youtube Video

Well, here we are, one week into the season, and the old familiar Jeckyll and Hyde, Siamese Twin, Convoluted, Confused Dodgers have returned. In this Youtube video, I drop my takes on the first week. Inside we talk about Matt Kemp, the anemic offense, the Dodgers’ timid manager, and we review a Bavarian style IPA from Clown Shoes beer.

Enjoy!

I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

One thought on “The Jeckyll and Hyde Dodgers Return – A Youtube Video

  1. More Mr. Hyde than the good doctor. Like I said in an earlier post, I am concerned about the strikeouts. They are averaging about 8 a game. Only position player not to K is Pederson. That in and of itself I find amazing. The clutch hitting is not there either. They find the offense for 3 games and the other 4 they have totally forgotten that skill. Actually in the first win I think they only had like 4 or 5 hits. One of the writers on their web site, I think it was Gurnick, said that although they started at 10-12 last year they ended up winning 104. He also said that was mainly because of the emergence of 2 players, Bellinger and Taylor. So, who is going to pick up the gauntlet this year? Kike? I doubt it. He is nothing more than a utility player, and I think more playing time for him is not going to make any difference. He had success in the spring against RH pitching, but has not shown any of that so far. Forsythe? The biggest trade flop since Delino Deshields. Guy cold not hit a bull in the butt with a bass fiddle. Pederson? If Joc was the same player he was when he was in AAA, I might say yes. But he has shown nothing close to that. The guys who are in the lineup right now need to step it up big time. Seager, Taylor, Puig, Grandal, Kemp, Bellinger, those guys all have a lot of talent. It needs to come to bear until Turner gets back. More than that they need fire in their bellies and a deep desire to win and turn this mess around.
