At a record of 10 and three, the Dodgers are sitting atop the National League West. They have dealt out the most runs (82) and allowed the least (40) and have definitely asserted themselves as expected.
“We still have a chance to go 159-3,” Russell Martin said. “It’s a long season, though.”
Though the outlook is good, Dodger fans are all too aware of great starts that lead to bad endings. The Dodgers finished with the worst winning percentage of any team in major league history that won at least 12 of its first 14 games back in 2005. And last year, without Manny, where would the Blue Crew be?
The pitching staff needs to keep on truckin’ like they have. Kershaw is starting to come into what was expected of him. McDonald is also proving his worth.
Even Andre Ethier, the man that choked so many times in game winning and changing situations is doing great. He is currently the National League leader in RBI!
Dodger fans enjoy the success on our day off! Time to get back to work tomorrow against the Astros in Houston.
