  • Dave Roberts in the last week of June

    Recapping the last three days for Dave Roberts:

    Tuesday: Stripling effective through 5, Dodgers lead 2-1. Stripling at 86 pitches. His spot comes up with a runner on first and 2 outs (hardly a key situation). Dodgers don't score. Roberts brings in Yimi Garcia to open the 6th and he immediately blows the game. Dodgers lose, 9-4.

    Wednesday. "(player-popup #alex-wood)Alex Wood":/players/alex-wood-15846 pitches. Dave Roberts obviously falls asleep in the mid-innings, as Wood somehow is allowed to pitch 7 innings. Dodgers win, 7-5.

    Thursday: Clayton Kershaw starts, and it's expected he'll be given 75 pitches (pretty low to begin with). Kershaw pitches great. Pulled after 5 innings and only 68 pitches, leading 3-1. Walker Buehler comes in to open the 6th and he immediately blows the game. Dodgers lose, 11-5.

    Dodgers bullpen has been awful, yet Roberts is fixated on getting his crappy bullpen arms into the game ASAP.

    Dave Roberts is such a moron. He is incapable of learning.

    Repeatedly last month he pulled his SP with 85 pitches or less and the bullpen immediately blew it.

    So he pulls Wood at 76 pitches with an overworked bullpen (key guys have all pitched a lot Friday/Saturday) and brings in the crappiest pitcher on the roster.

    No surprise, first batter (Ohtani pinch hitting) immediately homers.

    It's amazing how many games he costs the Dodgers each season with his stupidity, but they're so talented they can overcome it.

      In the month of July so far Dodgers starting pitchers have thrown an average of 84 pitches with not a single one going for over 92.
