This particular pattern of futility is growing exceedingly tiresome. The Dodgers' hapless no-ffense needs to break out of its funk and snap the sweep cycle. The inability to deal with inexperienced pitchers that they should be manhandling has officially progressed from the "statistical blip" stage to "troubling trend", but the Rockies have run out of youngsters to throw at us. Though not exactly a gray-beard, Jeff Francis hasn't seen a winning season since 2007, back when he was with the Colorado the first time around. So, are we going to get our collective act together, or can we expect another half-assed effort?
