The Dodgers hate us now. I don’t know what we did to them, but they’ve decided to lash out and treat us to awful baseball.
We talked about the Dodgers struggles last week, and they continued to be awful this week. The team showed a couple signs of breaking out of it, several close games agains the Rockies, and a 4-1 lead early on Friday. In the end, the Dodgers dropped all 7 games this week, extended their losing streak to 10 games, and have now dropped 15 of their last 16. There isn’t much more to say, this isn’t fun anymore.
They still own the best record in baseball, (a title that is in danger btw) which is pretty interesting considering how awful they’ve been for two weeks. Just a testament to how good this team used to be, you know, when they loved us.

Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again, and it’s nice to see him back on the field, the fact that he’s been productive is just a nice bonus.
Week Twenty-Three Puig:
You got, “Whatever Puig”
It’s hard to care when the team has been so awful, and he hasn’t exactly helped things.
