To say it’s been a bumpy road for the Dodgers this season would be a vast understatement. It’s been an oil-slicked road filled with gaping potholes and fallen power lines.

As they continue to sort out their newly minted lineup, what can the Dodgers do to get back to an even record and beyond before it’s too late?
