First place versus second place! The verdict is still out on Yasmani Grandal, but couldn't we have thrown in some more cash in the Matt Kemp deal and gotten Cashner or Tyson Ross? Just a thought as we smart from that momentum-killing sweep in San Francisco. Scoring six total runs in a three-game series ain't gonna get it done, boys.
Fortunately, dreamboat Zack has picked up the slack from hopefully-still-recovering-from-that-root-canal Kershaw. In his three starts, Greinke has gone 6, 7, and 6 2/3 innings, with a total of 14 strikeouts and only two walks. Now the Dodgers just have to wake up the bats in cavernous Petco Park, because the pitchers can't do everything.
