Dodgers Tee Off on Scumbag Kennedy, But Lose McCarthy

In earlier posts discussing how vastly improved are the 2015 San Diego Padres, I mentioned their outstanding starting staff that features a strong group of talented young hurlers, plus their one Achilles heel, baseball’s number one headhunter, that miserable trojan scum ian kennedy, who after three weeks of leisure time made his second start of the season tonight. Showing off every aspect of his inferior ability and sub-standard,

sociopathic character, the Dodgers whacked him up, down, and sideways, for eight earned runs in 4-1/3 inning. Kennedy now sports a 10.80 ERA for the season.

The Dodgers needed all those runs, plus the three they scored against the Padres' bullpen, as Dodgers' starter Brandon McCarthy was pretty bad himself, allowing six runs, all earned, in five innings. McCarthy left the game not because he

couldn’t get anyone out, but because, as we knew would happen (See virtually every post I’ve written about the Dodgers since last December), he’s hurt. McCarthy, who in 2014 pitched a full, injury-free season for the first time in his career, has now admitted to several days of elbow pain, and his set for a Monday MRI. Chances are pretty solid that we won’t be seeing him on the mound again anytime soon.

The Dodgers' bullpen, doing it with smoke and mirrors for the season so far, is showing its true colors, and came close to blowing the game tonight. The elder statesman, Joel Peralta, has been the glue so far, along with Yimi Garcia, but most of the rest of the group has been pretty bad, especially Sergio Santos, Pedro Baez, J.P. Howell, and Chris Hatcher, who the empty uniform non-manager don mattingly insists on using in key spots. Is they ANY reasonable explanation for
the team sending Adam Liberatore back down to the minors after three close to perfect appearances?

I happened to see some of this afternoon’s Mets-yankees game, and I cannot believe how so many commentators are so wrong about the steroid-meister, alex rodriguez. Lavish praise for his majestic comeback continues to flood the airwaves and tabloids, devoid of any factual basis. Granted, he got off to an excellent start to the season, hitting four home runs and driving in 11, while hitting .344 over his first ten games. Since then, however, he has now gone three-for-24 (.125) with ZERO home runs and ZERO RBI since, and watching him strike out a couple of times today, he looked pathetic.

Two final Dodgers’ notes – 2015 NL MVP Matt Kemp was two-for-four tonight (before getting kicked out of the game for arguing a third-strike call) and is now hitting.351 on the season, and Dee Gordon is at .364
