    Dudes story is weird. Out of American baseball for like 4 years. Goes to Europe and plays in Italy. Cubs see him with his Italian team in Mesa and sign him

    I'm starting to think the entire league is juicing right now with these HR numbers.

    I think the base balls are being messed with.

    But wouldn’t be surprised if you were correct.

    He hit another HR today. He’s going to push for a roster spot next year

    I haven’t seen it talked about but Lester has been fucking terrible after hurting himself after his hot start to the season.

    He was amazing first time though the Dodger lineup. Second time he's been crushed. Dodgers are the best club in the NL. He will be ok

    I’m not just talking about tonight. He’s been really bad since his injury. I want to say it was his hammy about a month back.

    The balls are 100% juiced. The MLB can't even continue to take the position that they aren't. I just don't think some of these guys have made such drastic career changes by adjusting their swing and launch angle.

    The craziest one, to me, is people who think LaStella isn't juicing. He made an "adjustment" to his swing and has hit 15 HRs this season (10 in the previous 5 seasons). Who is believing that story?

    Just look at most of the dodgers hitters as well... guys who never did shit now are all world players. I'm sure it's running wild in baseball. No chance the league cracks down. Can't afford another scandal

    MLB made some "adjustments" to the ball this year, and they went too far. Home run numbers are a joke this year.

    Well, data shows it was at the all star break in 2015 when they juiced the ball. Every year since the HR record has been broken. This year the increase is so insane that, in my opinion, it's not just the ball.

    Adding Kimbrel will help but just like the last two years the Dodgers are clearly a better team than us once again.

    Although that doesn’t mean we can’t get hot and potentially beat them in a best of 7 series. Hopefully Bellinger will have cooled down a bit by October. Guy is on a fucking tear to start the year.

    I don’t think they are clearly the better team. That series in LA was very close. The Cubs also had a close series in Chicago that the cubs won.

    I fully expect these two teams in the NLCS

    Yup. The fucking Dodgers, with limitless payroll, spending like a team that prints money should. While we, a team that prints money, tries to skimp when we have generational talent.

    Dodgers spend because they already have the TV deal. It’s easy to for them to go all out.

    I would hope this is the final offseason we pretend to be poor
