On Wednesday, a crazy thing happened. The Los Angeles Dodgers won, and the San Francisco Giants lost. And then on Thursday, the Giants lost again, to the San Diego Padres. The Dodgers have gained a game on the Giants in the NL West, and are now one game back, with 15 games to play.
In this roller coaster of a season, the Los Angeles Dodgers are back on the top of the hill, having won eight of their last ten games. It is the right time for the Dodgers to get hot, as their three toughest series of the year are about to start.
“I don’t necessarily want to speak for the team. But I’m pissed personally. I don’t like losing. I want to win. That’s why I came here. And we are not playing up to our capabilities right now, so I’m mad.”
After yet another one-run loss, Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Trevor Bauer vented to reporters on the state of his current team.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are about one-third of the way through their Spring Training schedule, and those starting pitchers who were good to go from the beginning of camp are about to begin their third cycle of ramping up for the regular season.
The Los Angeles Dodgers played their first Spring Training game of the season yesterday, winning 2-1 over the Oakland Athletics. As of Monday, we are just one month from the beginning of the regular season.
