The 2013 season has not started the way the Los Angeles Dodgers had anticipated it would.
Marred by injuries, stymied by slumps, the Blue Crew is 11-12 nearly a month into the season. This team, with a sky-scraping payroll, has struggled to manufacture runs and above all, win games.
The Dodgers had recently reached the .500 mark for the first time in eight games after posting back-to-back home wins against the Milwaukee Brewers, but drifted back to choppy waters on Saturday night with a loss to the Brewers.
However, amid the plethora of the Dodgers’ downfalls, there have been some positive happenings.
There’s no denying that the Blue Crew have struggled early on, but there are some encouraging trends that suggest they may soon break out of their slump.
