...or the 2009 Twins.
Twins angry at teammate’s 'selfish act' (Jeff Passan, Yahoo! Sports)
The Dodgers may be slumping en route to the post-season, but they aren't being accused of stealing signs (as Joe Mauer — gasp! — is). They aren't feuding with each other because a hothead reliever caused their slugger to get beaned (even with Vicente Padilla on the team!).
The Dodgers may be losing, but they're losing as a team (as Wednesday's one-hitter proved). Which may not be much of a consolation now, but if the Dodgers are to bust this slump and do some damage in the playoffs, they'll need a balanced attack.
This team has last year's playoff experience under its belt, and it doesn't have noted grump Jeff Kent. Several of us Dodger bloggers have been fortunate enough to witness this year's clubhouse firsthand, and it's exactly how a workplace should be: professional and fun. Even the LA Times' T.J. Simers has noted it.
I know, most fans would rather root for a bunch of unhappy winners than happy losers. With a win this weekend and a little luck in the playoffs, we might just get the best of both worlds.
