    The schedule is going to get a little easier soon, but the Dodgers are improved from what they were earlier this year.

    This team, if nothing else, is consistent. The team started out the year at 4-6 through the first 10 games.

    If you divide the season so far up into 10 game increments they have been within 1 game of going 4-6 in each of the 10 game increments.

    Their overall record after each 10 game increment has been within one win of a .400 winning percentage. It has been exactly a .400 winning percentage 3 times and one game below that 3 times.

    That will continue this consistency through the 70th game as well here in a couple of days.

    No matter who is hurt and no matter who is hot they are a consistent .400 winning percentage team.

    Consider me shocked. I thought Banny was going to stubbornly leave him in there forever.

    That could be a good possibility. But Matt Moore just has not had it for a few years now.

    There is no way that was a hit for DDJ. But so much for the gift. Followed it with a DP.

    Hey Dave, you know how to keep the shift from taking away hits. Learn to go the other way, instead of trying to pull everything.

    You know, I haven't heard one word about that. I will have to see if I can dig something up.

    Maybe it is easier to keep something like that quiet.

    Nothing specific about any team, but here is a rundown on what is thought to be available in international free agency.

    This year's Top 30 International Prospects list includes 10 players from Venezuela, 16 from the Dominican Republic, three from Cuba and one from Colombia. The positions break down like this: 11 outfielders, eight infielders, seven pitchers and four catchers.

    The best athletes at premium positions are the most appealing to international scouts. Three of the top 13 are catchers and three of the top 10 are pitchers. Shortstops and center fielders are also highly coveted in this year's class.

    This is from Adam Morris.

    The player on the top 30 list linked to the Rangers is catcher Jose Rodriguez, a catcher out of Venezuela who is described as perhaps the most advanced hitter from Venezuela this year, with MLB Pipeline citing scouts as comparing him to Brian McCann (though hopefully without the Fun Police persona). BA also mentions the Rangers being linked to Rodriguez, describing him as an “offensive-minded catcher with an advanced bat.”
