    Dee Gordan

    What does anyone think of this guy? I keep hearing how he cant hit and he has no power but with that speed and having Kemp and Ethier in your lineup I think he can score alot of runs. Maybe i'm wrong but he doesn't seem like he's too bad of a hitter. I think he's learned the game pretty fast and he can only get better.

    He is built like a rake hence his lack of hitting power but he is as quick as greased lighting and will steal a few bases and score a few runs.

    I keep hearing how he cant hit but I watched the other day and he took some good pitches and drove a couple foul balls hard and what I like about him is he started playing in his latter highschool years which makes me think he picks up on things quick. Apparently Mattingly doesnt like him vs leftys but i'd start this kid every chance I got.

    When he gets on base he puts the wrath of hell on catchers and pitchers.

    Dee had a shocker today in defense but he made up with it by hitting the winner in the bottom of the 9th!! He can hit but is not a power hitter.

    2 stolen bases too. If he can cut down on those strikeouts he's the kinda guy who will get alot of infield hits. If he can get a 320 obp the Dodgers are gonna score alot of runs.

    And the Dodgers need to start scoring a lot of runs. They have managed just one inning in 14 to score more than 6. That they are 11-3 is amazing.
