starts with carl the craw.. remember him? fuly healthy again and has been his usual spark plug irritant self as a first-rate leadoff man. of course there's the most dangerous rook in years in one puig at second. talkin .600 slugging and well over 1.000 OPS. gonzo (remember him?) has become his old padre clutch self and a solid rock as the prototypical #3 hitter. nothin against pedy but a-gon is who u want in that position. the real though, the guy who makes this entire lineup truly elite and sangerous come playoff time is one HANLEY RAMIREZ... (y cant we get playas like that?).. perfect blend of left-right balance and skillset diversity. when u have Ethier batting 5th you have a powerful lineup. his bat is in resurgence (4 big hits yesterday).
all this without their top 3 OF'rs all playin together at the same time. kemp was on fire before his latest ankle issue. no way u sit puig. i can see kemp in left going forward and hitting SIXTH. think about that, the rightful MVP of just 2 years ago batting sixth. would hate to b a pitcher facing those guys. not one jabro in the bunch, each can go deeeep on any pitch. talk about a perfect win-win trade. dodgers wouldnt take it back and nor would we.
red sox west is kicking the angels all over their bloated grill on and off the field. these guys have won like 25 of 28 games and are poised to win their DIVISION! plus look at that pitching staff led by kuroda. built to make loud noise in the playoffs as well!
