I watched some Dodgers games last week and they didn’t get any runs and the starting pitching gave up a whole ton of runs and there were players playing I didn’t know much about and some players I really like are hurt and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.
The Dodgers start the last week in August with a day off, and maybe it’s a good time for it. The offense sure seems tired. Almost no-hit yesterday, and no runs scored Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers.
This team. Every time you think a game’s over, it’s not. There’s always something happening, someone else stepping up to do the damage. Thursday night was another wild ending that resulted in a walkoff win for the Dodgers.
While lefty Alex Wood was busy providing the Dodgers with yet another stellar starting pitching performance at the big league level on Wednesday evening, outfield prospect DJ Peters continued his recent domination with the lumber in the California League.
Last year, a few stubborn fans who didn’t care to comprehend simple math believed it to be a season-long jinx. But only ten games into the 2017 campaign, the struggles the Dodgers have been wrestling with against left-handed pitching have become so obvious that other teams are realigning their pitching rotation when they see a series vs. Los Angeles appear on their respective schedules.
