The most important week for the Dodgers season begins tonight at 7:10.
They start off a 4 game series with the 1st place San Diego Padres and end with a weekend series against the Washington Nationals. Luckily for the Dodgers, Stephan Strasburg is on the Disabled List.
The Dodgers need to win at least 3 of 4 from the Padres to get back into contention. Anything short of that most likely means the end is near for this 2010 season.
The pitching has been there for the Dodgers since the All-Star break but the offense hasn’t showed up. They haven’t scored more than five runs in 17 straight games. They need to end this 5 game losing streak.
Andre Ethier returns to the lineup tonight, after leaving the team in San Francisco to be with his wife, who was expecting their 2nd child.
It’s time that the offense sets it up. Ethier and Furcal need to continue their all-star years and everyone else will follow.
Time to win some games.
