    Damn 2cent, you triggered? Good to know there’s someone like you worrying for us all, but cut the drama bit.

    @Tank, all class! Is it okay to go buy where poisons are sold, get home, and give it to everyone you love without them knowing? According to you, it is.

    Your 2 cents ain’t worth a penny. No politics involved? That alone is a conspiracy of stupidity. As for Sturgis, people bring back stuff more serious than the Rona. Besides, don’t some folks deserve to get a break and go somewhere where the antifa/blm DELETED would never show there masked faces.

    The Dodgers are 12-7 after a 6-0 win over the San Diego Padres Wednesday night. Justin Turner hit a three-run homer in the 8th inning to break the game open for L.A.
    The Dodgers currently trail the Colorado Rockies by half a game for the division lead.
    Joc Pederson again batted leadoff and went 0-for-4, lowering his average to .180. The Dodgers’ team batting average of .232 puts them at 21st (out of 30 teams) in major league baseball.
    Fortunately, L.A. has the best pitching in MLB, with a team earned-run average of 2.34. Good pitching is the most important thing to have in baseball, but I agree with Rams Fan: The Dodgers would have an easier time of it if they could give their pitchers run support.
    Hopefully, the 6-0 win over a decent Padres team is a sign of things to come.

    I have the cure for Bellinger’s hitting woes… I’ll trade him in my fantasy league

    With this worldwide pandemic that has cost sports leagues across our country billions of dollars, what is truly amazing is there are still conspiracy theorist individuals who still think it is due to politics. Kens and Karens are still refusing to wear their masks. You can’t have it both ways. Just wait until the 250,000 people from the Sturgis motorcycle gathering in South Dakota go back to their respective homes after this weekend.

    #9 Amazing the Dodgers have the record they do. I’ve seen little league players with better discipline at the plate. Bellinger .167 Muncy .186 Pederson .196? Did they forget what that stick in their hands was for? Yet here’s Blackmon in Colorado hitting .500. Thank you bullpen for saving our bacon.
