Dodgers aren’t cleaning up

Many things are going right for the Dodgers but the number one problem for the Dodgers in 2017 is the lack of production from the clean-up spot.

The numbers don’t lie, the LAD are 25th in wRC+ out of 30 teams.  The Angels are right below the Dodgers, maybe something in the water in Los Angeles?

    • Thought you left us and I was wondering what I said. Was it the lack of coffee? The bad hygiene?
