Power Rankings
Tyson Ross can't win the Silver Slugger thanks to Madison Bumgarner, but he's still a good hitting pitcher. He's 12 for 48 (.250) with a double, triple, home run and four RBI this season.
They haven't been above .500 since June 8, but they are close. I'd be interested to see the overall reaction to this season should they end with a winning record while missing the playoffs by a pretty sizeable margin. They haven't had a winning record since 2010, though they did win 77 games last season.
And now they've won six of eight. This coming after losing six in a row against the Brewers and Phillies. Whatever.
Swept by the Phillies after losing three of four to the Brewers. Atta way to show your GM that his confidence in you was founded!
I wonder if A.J. Preller realized what I've been saying for weeks -- that if he gutted the team after gutting the farm system a few months ago he'd be admitting he didn't know what he was doing -- and that's why he kept everyone at the deadline? He didn't fool himself into thinking they are contenders, right?
Justin Upton has been dreadful since the beginning of June, hitting .178/.277/.276 with 50 strikeouts in 152 at-bats.
One of their players throwing gum at an opponent for doing something pretty much everyone does now pretty well sums up the season. A day late, a buck short. Terrible.
I went back and forth for a while and I've finally landed here: You can't have a firesale less than a year after taking your first GM job and pushing all your chips to the center of the table without people realistically questioning if you know what the hell you are doing. And yet, the roster is badly flawed. Good luck, Mr. A.J. Preller.
After his second-half surge last year, Matt Kemp's first half this time around is nothing short of baffling.
Can GM A.J. Preller justify selling in July after that wild offseason of wheeling and dealing? I don't feel like he can. It'll be fun to watch if he does, though. We know he's not shy.
