That's D, as in Disabled List

Steve Henson of Yahoo! Sports has the midterm MLB grades, and the you can't spell Dodgers without a big fat "D" grade:

Grade: D-plus

Los Angeles Dodgers: The vaunted young talent is developing as expected, but the veterans acquired for obscene sums of money to complement the kids have been huge disappointments. So Joe Torre is left with an anemic offense and an inconsistent rotation. Two years ago the Dodgers were in a similar plight, then inexplicably went on a July tear and made the playoffs. So anything is possible, especially in the forgiving NL West.

The Giants also get a D-plus grade, but luckily for us, the Diamondbacks only get a C. Aim for the mediocre!

At least he's blaming the vets and not the kids.

I smell another vets-vs-kids debate coming, if this team doesn't turn things around in July.
