With the Dodgers dropping three games to the Mets in just under 24 hours, wrapping up a scintillating 2-7 roadtrip, we can now take a deep breath and reflect upon other great moments in 2010 Dodgers baseball that we face at the end of April. Like Vicente Padilla, Manny Ramirez, Jeff Weaver, Rafael Furcal, and possibly Andre Ethier all getting injured. Or the fact we've lost all five of five road series. Or the fact that we have to leave critical at bats to a .135 pinch-hitter in Garret Anderson. Or the fact that we have the 12th best ERA in the NL, but we've dropped series to two of the four teams beneath us...and we're about to face four at home with one of those who has bested us already, the Pittsburgh Pirates.
There are no NL teams with fewer wins than the Dodgers, and only one team in all MLB with fewer wins than the Dodgers (and it's the woeful Orioles). Clearly, we are playing the part of The Losers right now. And we're not even playing that part well.
