Good on paper, not so good on the field.
The picture above sums up this year's Dodger season. It began looking very promising with the acquisition of a very talented and successful manager, Joe Torre. It looked even better when we got Manny Ramirez at the trade deadline.
So why can't the Dodgers get a single win right now? They have lost 8 straight games, being swept in the last 2 series, including by a team (Washington Nationals) that is considered so bad, they are known as the Triple-A team of the majors. They have the worst record in the majors. What does that say about the Dodgers?
Now is a perfect opportunity to gain some ground against the division-leading Diamondbacks. I'd really hate to see the Dodgers not even make the playoffs with Torre managing, and Manny Ramirez playing as well as he is with the Dodgers now.
No matter what happens, though, I'm still a fan of the Dodgers and will stand behind them!
Let's go, Dodgers!!!
