My Letter to the Dodgers

Dear Dodgers,

What happened to you? I know at the beginning of the season I didn’t expect you to be a power team. I know you are leading the division right now. But it’s still way early in the season and this is starting to get ridiculous.

In the series against the D-Backs you guys stranded a total of 32 men on base, and in the first game against Atlanta y’all left another 10 without even scoring a run. How do you expect to be a threat (much less win games) against opposing teams?

I really think you should put Wilson Betemit on waivers and finally bring up James Loney. It’s been five weeks, and Betemit is still hitting only .125. In the 56 at-bats he’s had in 23 games he’s only managed a meager seven hits. I know in baseball patience is a virtue, but I think five weeks is long enough.
