I’m off to go boating with my daughters family today… so this is short! My wife and youngest son are doing a 4th of July event with their ice cream trucks and my oldest son is in Long Island today. So, it’s just me…
Fireworks at Dodger Stadium have been cancelled due to the Dodgers smoking hot bats!
Max “Freaking” Muncy should own 2B. With Gold Glove Caliber players at 1B, 3B and SS, you can have one weak link if all he does is rake. Mad Max should be an All-Star as should Kemp.
Before the season started I hoped that Kike would be a regular and said he might he 30 HR is we was. He is and he might.
Clayton went 6 last night and Doc says the reins are off for his next start. His velocity is climbing back up. He was throwing strikes and I think he will get 1 or 2 MPH back. He hit 92 several times last night.
Striker Buehler threw three innings and struck out 5 last night at RC. Allegedly he will get one more rehab start. Actually, they are stalling his clock!
I’m rooting for my Favorite Dodger – Rich Hill today.
Alex “Freaking” Verdugo is now hitting .346 with a .907 OPS after going 3-4 last night. He now has 7 HR which is 1 more than all of last year. Maybe the power is starting to come. It’s going to be hard to keep him and Toles down.
Puig, Pederson, Toles and Verdugo. Two of those players will not be on the team August 1st!
Player to watch: Drew Hutchinson. He’s still only 27 but has won 31 games in MLB. He went 6 and allowed 2 hits last night for OKC.
