Despite the rough patch, the Dodgers need to win just three more games of their remaining 21 to clinch a post season spot. The most games that the Brewers could win are 94, so LA's 95th win would guarantee at least a wild card spot.

If they failed to do this, if they went 2-19 in their final 21 games, that would mean that they had gone 3- 32 in their last 35 games.

Suddenly this current slump has been as shocking as their amazing run earlier this season. With that said they still maintain a 10 game lead in the division. As I stated before, it doesn't matter what happens during the regular season, it only matters what happens in the postseason. The Dodgers certainly have made things more interesting. It appears that the plot has thickened.

Yes, they're going to make the postseason. The question is, will they be the 1, 2, or 4 seed?

That's the frustrating part for me. We had home field wrapped up (so it seemed) in late August. Now you're likely looking at a #2 seed with the Nationals a #1 seed. Dodgers play the Nats next weekend in a 3 game series which could put the Nationals on top if they sweep or even win 2 out of 3.

Instead of the Dodgers literally having nothing to play for the last week or two of the season they are going to play meaningful games in hopes of homefield advantage.

Being swept AT HOME by Arizona is one thing, but swept by the Rockies???? The Rockies? Are you kidding me!

Don't forget to mention it was a 4 game series too. Getting swept in a 3 game series happens sometimes but 4???

The Dodgers have a chance to get well against the Giants. San Francisco is 4-12 in their last 16 games, losing the last two to the White Sox by a combined 21-2 score. In this homer happy year, the Giants are last in all MLB in four baggers with just 115.

The Giants are just playing out the string, trying out a bunch of Triple A guys who aren't providing any hope for the future. They have Miguel Gomez (.538 OPS), Mac Williamsom (.632 OPS), Carlos Moncrief (.493 OPS), Orlando Calixte (.438 OPS) and Ryder Jones (.570 OPS). They also have been playing Pablo Sandoval regularly. The Panda hit a home run Friday, but that snapped an 0 for 38 streak at the plate for him. Overall for San Francisco he has batted .180/.233/.270

If LA can't break out of their downward spiral against this feeble crew, then they don't deserve to be in the post season.

I leave the country for two weeks on vacation and come back to this??? I suppose the silver lining was that I haven't had the opportunity to watch any of these games or really keep up on a daily basis.

But this is the reason why REGULAR SEASON SUCCESS MEANS NOTHING!!! And I'm looking every Dodger fan out there who has opposed the notion that the season is a failure without a title. IT IS ALL ABOUT WINNING A TITLE! The Dodgers could win out the rest of the season but nothing matters without winning the title. Conversely, the Dodgers could lose every remaining regular season game but as long as they win the championship it will all be worth it. This is especially so in a city where we are used to seeing the Lakers win title after title (and even the Kings had some small success a few years back). I don't even know why this was a discussion but I'm kind of glad nobody is even mentioning it anymore.

Small success? They won 2 cups in 3 years, both more recently than the most recent Lakers title. Lakers have been trash for quite a few years now.

Home field is in jeopardy now at 3.5 with a looming trip to Nationals Park. The first order of business is to stop the bleeding. They have Kershaw going tonight.
