    Would be nice to get the taste of that f'ing ridiculous Ranger series out of my mouth.

    I'm hoping for some wins. We sure don't need to lose 5 straight :\.

    Zack Greinke
    Christian Javier
    Lance McCullers Jr.
    Framber Valdez
    Jake Odorizzi or Jose Urquidy

    Framber Valdez, Jose Urquidy, Jake Odorizzi are really needed in the rotation. The Starters can be sent to the bullpen.

    I personally want Christian Javier as a Starter.

    Urquidy or Odorizzi needs to prove themselves for a spot in the Rotation.

    Scrubb needs to be sent down. Stanek is up and down.

    Luis Garcia as Setup Man with Abreu and Parades.

    6th Luis Garcia
    7th Bryan Abreu
    8th Enoli Parades
    9th Ryan Pressley

    homeboy thrives off that ****. we're better off not doing anything at all when he's pitching, just dead silence.

    I hope Dusty demands to have a Bauer ball removed from play for inspection.

    I'm going w/ Urquidy in the rotation over Javier. Javier needs to figure out his fastball control issues. I also like that Urquidy is more efficient and goes longer in his starts.

    I also think Javier's stuff plays well in the bullpen.

    So.... Trevor Bauer is obviously cheating, he doesn't hide it, but MLB not doing anything?

    The xBA on his 4-seamer was around the .260s w/ the Indians, but dramatically dropped to the .160s after the Indians. The big difference is the spin rate on his 4-seamer has increased ~400rpm

    The Astros didn't get any statistical improvements from sign-stealing, but pitcher's using illegal substances do. Hmmm... what am I missing here?

    A whistle blower... and a media blitz that can effectively target a soft media market (Houston) without any repercussion/backlash that will impact their sources or future job potential.

    The problem with the Dodgers is that some of their players are as delusional as their fan base. I guess since they finally won something they possibly don’t care as much, but **** those disingenuous assholes.

    Also read that Urquidy out of the pen isn't as good, compared to being a starter. Javier was good coming out of the pen.

    Abreu can kick rocks until he learns how to get a lead-off man out. Go practice in the Minors.
