Kuroda taking a line drive to the head last night is just the latest problem for the Dodgers. He’s apparently going to be fine, which is great. The Dodgers, however, have apparently been hit by something, and we’re all suffering as a result.
The team has spent almost the entire season in first place, but you wouldn’t know it from watching them lately. Since the All-Star break they are 13 -16 and in the month of August 5 – 9. Their last three games have ended with losses to teams in their own division.
If they don’t put the breaks on the slide soon they may be heading home for the winter sooner than we all thought just a few short weeks ago.
