Brandon League

Brandon League

On one hand, we can’t watch games on TV. On the other, why would we want to? The Blue Crew are doing terribly in nearly every field of the game.

The starting pitchers are inconsistent. Greinke goes eight innings in a 7-0 shutout one day, and the next, Kershaw — our ace — gives up seven runs in ⅔ of an inning, a meltdown of epic proportions that led to an 18-7 defeat at the hands of the lowly D’backs.

Other than Yasiel Puig being on a hitting streak, our bats cannot bring home the bacon. I think Kevin Kennedy on AM570 said we were 3 for 33 (or something ridiculous like that) with the bases loaded. C’mon!

And fielding? So many errors, so little time.

It is a sad state of affairs when the only good news is Brandon League. He has gone from being booed to being brilliant, and I’m happy for him. It’s not enough to bring the team back from the brink of destruction, but I can’t watch them anyway, so who cares?

That’s really the thing, isn’t it? If the Dodgers suck on TV and no one is able to watch it, does the check from Time Warner to Guggenheim still go through?

Don’t ask $tan Ka$ten. He hasn’t been seen or heard from since Opening Day.

Dodger Fan Rally on June 1
My friend, L.A. Times columnist Chris Erskine, appeared on Dodger Fan Weekly recently to discuss the upcoming Fan Rally at the Short Stop on Sun., June 1.
