You know the sad story. The Dodgers offense has entered the witness protection program. Nobody knows where it is.
They were schooled by the World Champions about the way to play baseball. Despite the preaching of Don Mattingly, Mark McGuire and John Valentin, some of the guys have failed to have professional at bats and have not been able move runners. On the contrary, Hunter Pence gave himself up by shortening his swing and hitting to the right side to advance a runner from second to third base.
The home stand begins with the Padres and Grienke on the mound.
