Code Blue In Dodger town
The Los Angeles Dodgers are Hemmoraging, suffering an 11 game losing streak, and there is no end in sight. Two weeks ago, the Dodgers we’re flirting with the best record in MLB history. After dropping 14 of 15, the Blue crew would be fortunate to even keep home field advantage in the National League.
This eleven game slump is the worst since 1944 when the team was still in Brooklyn. The Dodgers are still in first place, at 92-51, the Blue Crew still have a nine-game head in the NL West. The Washington Nationals still trail the Dodgers for home-field advantage in the National League.
Los Angeles is beginning to panic, it’s water cooler talk anywhere you go.
The team has scored a measly 59 runs in 121 innings. The bats have gone silent. October is just around the order, so hopefully, in some ironic way, this struggle might unite the Dodgers for a run at the World Series.
