Weekly summation 4/9/17 – Runs a plenty, wins not so much.

With a week of baseball in the books,  the Dodgers managed a 4  – 3 record which puts them smack in the middle of the NL West.  It was a strange week where the offense scored in double digits three times in seven games.   When you outscore your opponents 40 runs to 22 you’d probably expect to win at least five of those seven but when 34 of those 40 came in three games you realize they were lucky to win four games.

On the plus side:

  • they only lost one pitcher to the DL in Rich Hill.
  • they finally tagged a left-handed pitcher on Sunday
  • Puig has the highest OPS on the team
  • They have four starting players with an OPS over .900
  • Ryu and McCarthy gave solid efforts
  • Kershaw has yet to issue a walk in 2017
  • Josh Fields looks to have recovered his velocity
  • Chris Hatcher has started 2017 very nicely

On the negative side:

  • After opening day heroics, Grandal and Joc went into hibernation.  Grandal hit two home runs on opening day and those were his last hits for the week. Joc hit the grand slam on opening day and managed three singles the rest of the week. That means they were meaningless in Coors.
  • Enrique Hernandez and Franklyn Gutierrez didn’t do much damage against LHP when asked upon.
  • Clayton Richard toyed with the Dodgers.
  • Freeland didn’t toy with them but he certainly beat them
  • Logan Forsythe woke up on Sunday, but prior to that he had been MIA

    Toles has twice as many walks as Strike Outs!

    Barnes has as many walks as Grandal
    and one less Strikeout than Grandal

    Gonzalez is doing fantastic. 950 OPS, .350 BA, 7 H, 6 BB, 2 SO
    Puig is getting it done too. 1.164 OPS, .292 BA, 7 H, 5 BB, 4 SO
    Turner the hitting machine 1.023 OPS, .400 BA, 10 H, 1BB, 2 SO
    Seager getting rolling now. .995 OPS, .308 BA, 8 H, 3 BB, 7 SO,
    been watching that outside corner slip slide away with a two strike count, this won’t last much longer.

    They Can Do Better !!! ???
    Forsythe
    Pederson
    Toles
    Grandal

    Appears to not be seeing the pitch 94+ very well.
    Utley
