The struggle bus continues for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles. After an ugly 9-2 loss in Orange County on Friday, the boys in blue have lost 4 in a row and 14 of 18 and are straight up not having a good time. Just ask LA catcher Will Smith.
It’s not fun. But guys are keeping their heads up. Wins will come. It’s too good a team to keep losing. We all know that. We’re all too confident in here to keep what we’ve been doing the last two weeks. Things are going to turn around for us.
We keep telling ourselves that the wins will come and that this team is just too good to be this bad only to get fooled again each day as the black cloud following the Dodgers is well into its third week of poor play. The injuries continue to mount after the team lost AJ Pollock to a hamstring strain on Friday and don’t necessarily have help coming anytime soon.
Cody Bellinger is running at 60% right now as he waits for the small fracture in his leg to heal, and the big update on Zach McKinstry is that he has upgraded to being able to sneeze and not feel pain as he recovers from an oblique strain.
Still, there’s some reason for optimism today as Clayton Kershaw looks to play the role of stopper for the blue.
The wins will start coming again one of these days…
