So the Dodgers got swept yesterday? Yawn! Big Deal! We did get to see a whole bunch of players who will not be with the team in 2018…. maybe ever!
- Logan Forsythe did nothing to dissuade anyone he is playing for a a contract and might have a career year.
- Trayce Thompson is trying to hit his way onto the team.
- Matt Beaty hit a Big Fly.
- No one not named Stripling or Gonsolin could pitch a lick.
- Kyle Farmer is seizing the day.
- Edwin Rios looks like a hitter.
- Max Muncy is making his case.
…. and it’s just a bunch of guys getting ready. Even if Barnes is healthy, it appears that the Dodgers might keep Farmer since he can play other positions. Time will tell.
Campy confirmed it and others have also told me: Matt Kemp is the darling of Spring Training. Barring injury, there is no doubt in my mind he is the starting leftfielder. Lots of other things have to be decided. There could be a trade or two and I am waiting for that inevitable “Bad News.”
Game today at 3:10 EDT/12:10 PDT with Kershaw on the mound. It is supposed to be on MLB.TV.
That’s all folks!
