Fact is stuff just hasn't gone the Dodgers way this season. When you look at the reasons for this team's pathetic season, it's not a surprise.
Injuries have been brutal causing this team to not find a rhythm, but more importantly I do believe that the coaching has played a crucial role in this teams demise.
Mattingly is a laid back manager and in return, he gets a bunch of players that are laid back themselves. Ethier is content with his money and Kemp seems content as well, but I do believe him not being cleared for advanced weight training until a month ago played a big part in his recovery and atrocious start.
Crawford was good for us, then he got hurt. Hanley was poised for a huge year, then he got hurt in the WBC. Our third base situation is horrible and our bullpen is horrible.
We have three elite SP's in Kershaw, Greinke, and Ryu (yes, he's been great for us), but then our 4 and 5 SP's change every week.
Our two positives offensively? Puig and Gonzalez.
When you break down everything, it's clear why we are this bad at this point in the season. No one can make an argument that this team should be any good, no one. I don't care about the money spent, too many things have gone wrong this season and we had holes that were not addressed.
