Is this the year of breaking bad for the Dodgers?

The Dodgers have won five straight division titles and the only thing probably keeping them from winning six in a row is going to be team health.

Are the Dodgers in decline?

Craig Minami in the TrueBlueLA comments asked this question. Is this a team on the rise, a team at the pinnacle or a team that be in some small decline? I started to answer but realized why I stopped posting lengthy comments at truebluela. By tomorrow, they will be gone,  so I thought I’d answer …

Forsythe has a triumphant return

For the first nine innings of last nights ballgame it looked like the Dodgers might have activated Logan Forsythe before he was ready.  Logan struck out four times in his first four at-bats out of the lead off spot, but when it really counted he struck for gold connecting on a double to drive in …
