A lot of fans sure think so. I personally feel like it’s too early to write off the season, but things do not look good. Rather than focusing on the negative, let’s take a look at the positive. The young guys are really starting to make an impact, ie. Seager, Thompson and yes, even Joc (in the field anyway). I have also been pleasantly surprised with Adam Libertore, who I wanted DFA’d earlier in the season. The emergence of Julio Urias is also extremely promising, even though he only has about 70 innings left this year, before they shut him down. This brings me to the possible secret weapon. We are all eagerly awaiting the arrival of Montas. The guy throws in the upper 90’s, and he is sure to make a big impact, even if they decide it’s out of the bullpen. What puzzles me as well as the rest of the Dodgers fans is why this team has been so horrendous on the offensive end this season. They have no fire, and they just look like losers up at the plate. Take last night for example; bases loaded with one out and Kike Hernandez up at the plate. It was painfully obvious that he was going to strike out, and well, he did. What happened next...do I even need to say it. 0-12 with runners in scoring position! YIKES! This is becoming a broken record for this team. I’m getting so sick of watching this team fail time and time again. I am loyal though, and I will always support my boys in blue. I can’t stand bandwagon fans! Yes, the Dodgers are boring, but you have to stay true. We are The Dodgers are only a few players away from being a major contender, and I believe that even though we may not catch the Giants, we can at least secure a Wild Card spot. Only time will tell.
Card of the day is a steal from ebay that I got last year in the $70 range. Not too shabby for a Heritage auto:
