That was just plain pathetic.
Here you have a bad Giant’s team with aging position players and suspect pitching. The Dodgers could only manage one run off of five hits while giving up three runs off of 10 hits and an error in Tuesday night’s loss.
The sad thing is nothing the Dodgers have been doing since the Mets series at home would indicate they would muster any sort of production anywhere.
They lost two of three games at home to the Mets, two of three to the abysmal Houston Astros and two of three to the mediocre Colorado Rockies.
It’s time for the Dodgers to wake up from whatever coma they are in.
After the All Star break last year, they went lethargic and had to rely on blistering August where they won 17 of 18 games. Even then they barely squeaked into the playoffs earning a wild card berth.
The Dodgers on paper are the best team in the division. They have the capability of producing offense as opposed to the San Diego Padres, they don’t solely rely on their young layers like Colorado or Arizona nor do they rely on their old guys like San Francisco.
They have the capability of running away with the division. The fact that as of today they are one game behind the D-Backs makes it very frustrating as a Dodger’s fan.
With how ultra competitive the NL West is this season, the Dodgers can’t afford to loaf around. They need to start playing aggressively and close out the final two months on fire. As the St. Louis Cardinals showed the entire world last year, it’s all about how you finish the season. Actually in their specific case, it’s about how you finish the postseason.
