I got flamed pretty badly last night. And I'll be the first to say that my tone was affected by my frustration.
And while I won't use the "g" word again, I will stick to my general assertion. This team doesn't have what it takes to win a championship.
You can call it "finding ways to to lose", "head not in the game", whatever you want. But going 3 for 30-something with RISP...your game 1 starting pitcher walking 7 in 4.2 innings...or your 3 time gold-glove first baseman booting a ball and circling around looking for the ball..there is no silver lining here.
For all of you who said "they just had a bad game" last night, and tonight after the 2nd inning were probably saying "they just had a bad inning", I think the implication (or hope at least) , was they would bounce back strong as they have done all year. Maybe even get mad. Maybe show some fire. But they didn't. They look terrible and have managed only 2 hits.
Something has to be done, and I'm not sure what. IMO we need to swap out some of the DNA and try some new blood. You can see what Manny and Blake have brought to the Dodgers - well we need some of that next year. I don't know where you get it, and who you give up. But I hope they find a way.
