Now it’s so pathetic it’s just plain funny.

Last week Grady Little was quoted as saying that the team had hit rock bottom. Obviously he didn’t see what lie ahead.

Now that the Dodgers have a firm grip of fourth place in the NL West, it looks like the offense has completely collapsed. I knew that there would be games where the Dodgers wouldn’t be able to score since they have no power, but never in my imagination did I think the Dodgers would go into a slump of this magnitude.

What really kills me is the Dodgers have had opportunities to get into games. Of all of their losses, only one was a loss by more than three runs: their Sunday afternoon 12-2 loss against the St. Louis Cardinals. All it would have taken was a hit here, a hit there, and the Dodgers would have won those games.

So how did the Dodgers attempt to get out of their slump and not embarass themselves in front of a national audience?
