There has been a Spectrum outage for hours in my area and apparently there isn't a Spectrum app to watch Dodger games on your phone. Is that correct?

Leave the players in their field positions. Moving them around is arbitrary, IMHO

Barring a big lead we’re gonna see Kenley later. Maybe Graterol for the eighth over Treinen.

Gonna be interesting to see if Roberts let’s him pitch the sixth. Or if Kersh allows it, I say.
