How Will Dodgers Handle Their Starting Rotation Issues?

Things are looking dire in the city of Los Angeles at the moment, at least if you’re a fan of the Dodgers.

It may seem silly to say things are dire when the team is in possession of the second most wins in the MLB, just a game and a half out of first. They still have many of their 2020 World Series championship team on the squad. But things are not looking good at all for the Boys in Blue, especially in the starting pitching department.

What a long, strange week it was for the Los Angeles Dodgers. And yet, they didn’t lose a game.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are on a roll and are looking to take that momentum to our Nation’s Capitol.

After getting no-hit by the Chicago Cubs last Thursday, the Dodgers have gone on a six-game winning streak. They beat the Cubs the remaining three games of that series, and then edged out the San Francisco Giants in two games to gain some spots in the highly contested NL West. The Dodgers now sit at 49-31, 1.5 games out of first, while holding the second-best record in the National League.

(Rob Schumacher/The Arizona Republic via USA TODAY NETWORK)

The Los Angeles Dodgers did something Sunday night on national television rarely seen—they absolutely dominated their competition.
