OK Grady, time to man up and shuffle the lineup. Hit those kids in the clean up spot. Stop batting Nomar 6th - drop him to 8th. Ethier, Loney bat 5th and 6th. This sucks...

I kinda need to hear Chris Tucker say "3 FOR 50" for it really to sink in.

Said Grady Little after the game (as per the ESPN.com recap):

That's exactly what manager Grady Little brought up during a brief team meeting after the game. The Dodgers' poor clutch hitting is behind their deepest slump of the season, one that has knocked them from first to third in the NL West.

The fading Dodgers lost their fifth in a row, their longest losing streak of the season. They've dropped 14 of their last 19 overall.

"We'll get through it, hopefully sooner than later," Little said. "Other than that, I don't have a lot to say. I don't have a lot of good to say, so I'm not going to say anything."


Way to fire the team up, Grady. (Yawn.)
