State of the Dodgers

The Dodgers, on one hand, have dominated their division and the National League entirely, as they will easily glide into the top seed in the National League come October.

They have been led by probable NL MVP Cody Bellinger’s 42 home runs and have had great success in their rotation including Hyun-Jin Ryu leading the NL in ERA in the first half of the season and Clayton Kershaw being undefeated at home so far.

It seems like they have at least one or two walk-off wins each week, including back-to-back walk-off wins against the Blue Jays this week.

But obviously they yet again have an Achilles heel and it’s the bullpen.

It seems like it is an annual occasion that the Dodgers have needed to add a big bullpen piece at the Trade Deadline, but the front office hasn’t pulled the trigger.

This year they had plenty of options.

Shane Greene, who went to Atlanta who they might end up having to face in October, was a good option.

What about Brad Hand? Felipe Vasquez?

Nope. The Dodgers instead picked up one arm…. Adam Kolerek from the Rays.

Who? Exactly.

Kolarek is not going to win you a World Series.
