Coming off a brutal, three-game sweep at home against the rival Giants, it's an understatement to say that Dodger fans are starting to grumble.
Needless to say, fans expected a bit more production out of a club that made a huge trade deadline splash. The Dodgers traded for Hanley Ramirez, Shane Victorino, Brandon League and Randy Choate to help depleted sections of the roster.
Adding Joe Blanton seemed to be the cherry on top, as he has postseason experience and could bolster the back end of the rotation.
Now, despite the Giants losing their most consistent hitter to a 50-game suspension, the Dodgers sit two-and-a-half games back in the NL West with about 40 to go.
The wheeling and dealing isn't, and shouldn't be done quite yet. The waiver period extends through August and there are some quality pieces the Dodgers should try to add to finalize a roster that can make a World Series run.
