Post-Game 106 Thread: Burger Time!

DODGERS 4, GIANTS 3 You would always hate to drop the last game of a three-game series, when said last game is on national television (versus the first two games, in which the Dodgers outscored the Giants by 12 runs to regain possession of first place in the NL West).

Trading Jon Lester for Matt Kemp doesn't make sense

Trading Matt Kemp makes sense. Trading Jon Lester makes sense. But for each other? The Red Sox could use Matt Kemp in their outfield. Not necessarily in 2014, where Boston isn't competing for a playoff spot any longer, but in the future where Kemp is still under contract. The Dodgers could use Jon...

SAN FRANCISCO -- The National League West might still be decided based on what the respective general managers of the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers are able to pull off before Thursday's trade deadline. And then again it might not.
