Dozier entered the game last night as part of a double-switch. Trailing 2-1, Dozier came to the plate in the 8th inning, the tying run on base, and nobody out. Dozier flew out and did not advance the runner. The Dodgers went on to lose the game 2-1.

So you are saying the Dodger fans are soured on Dozier already?

Odor a complete bust of a pitcher. Was he signed to a two-year guaranteed contract? I don't want to see him pitch one inning in 2019. He is absolutely terrible!

Odor is still under "team control", and can go through arbitration again.

25-1 lead for Nats over mets


Yowza

so then, get this ...
The NATS today DFA'ed reliever Kelley for flinging his glove to the ground after giving up a homer late in the 25-4 WIN


And Oakland gave up "international Slot Money" for Kelley, trading for the glove thrower.

STL owned up to the 14 million dollar mistake with Holland and released him Friday; Apparently going to sign with Nats.

MY MAN !!!!!!!!

Jayson Werth, who said he was "done" with professional baseball in June, has this advice for front-office types who use sabermetrics to determine the paths of franchises: It doesn't compute.

"They've got all these super nerds, as I call them, in the front office that know nothing about baseball but they like to project numbers and project players," Werth, who wouldn't use the word "retirement" when he left the game on June 27, told the Howard Eskin Podcast for 94 WIP in Philadelphia.

"... I think it's killing the game. It's to the point where just put computers out there. Just put laptops and what have you, just put them out there and let them play. We don't even need to go out there anymore. It's a joke."

Werth, 39, was playing with Triple-A Tacoma -- batting .206 with four homers and 19 RBIs for the Seattle Mariners' affiliate -- when he said he had "no regrets" to stop playing. He finished his 15-year career as a .267 hitter with 229 home runs and 799 RBIs, mostly with the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies, with whom he won a World Series in 2008 and was an All-Star selection in 2009.

"When they come down, these kids from MIT or Stanford or Harvard, wherever they're from, they've never played baseball in their life," Werth told Eskin. "When they come down to talk about stuff like [shifts] ... should I just bunt it over there? They're like, 'No, don't do that. We don't want you to do that. We want you to hit a homer.' It's just not baseball to me.

"We're creating something that's not fun to watch. It's boring. You're turning players into robots. They've taken the human element out of the game."

Werth, known for his long hair, big beard and aggressive style during his playing career, is not the first to launch a verbal assault at baseball "nerds." Hall of Famer Goose Gossage ranted against the same thing in 2016.

"It is a joke," Gossage said then. "The game is becoming a freaking joke because of the nerds who are running it. I'll tell you what has happened, these guys played rotisserie baseball at Harvard or wherever the f--- they went, and they thought they figured the f---ing game out. They don't know s---."

Awesome

Some guy on Twins Daily said the Odorizzi peripherals were worse in Tampa, so my assertion he was bad wasn't based on fact.

So I just went fact that Odor can't get past 5 innings 2/3 of the time this year. That alone is enough for me.
Or anyone that watches him pitch.

Sounds like a perfect over pay FA for the Twins to pursue off-season. We like over-the-hill guys.

Perfect! Twins can make a trade for him as they will have plenty of money available for bad pitcher acquisitions.

I hope those stupid $27 million pitcher contracts go away forever. Bad money.

It's a stereotypical jock attitude towards nerds.

Jock doesn't want nerds running the game.

SAN DIEGO — Former All-Star pitcher Esteban Loaiza, who earned more than $43 million over 14 seasons, pleaded guilty Friday to federal drug charges in California.
Loaiza acknowledged that he possessed about 20 kilograms, or 44 pounds, of cocaine with intent to distribute. He faces up a minimum of 10 years in a prison and maximum of life when he is sentenced Nov. 2.
Loaiza, 46, was under surveillance when he was arrested in February near a house in Imperial Beach, which borders Tijuana, Mexico. His SUV had just left the garage when authorities confronted him.
