The Dodgers lost to the half-hearted St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday in another frustrating low-scoring match. Beginning Friday, the Dodgers are now 2.5 games behind the Giants in the division.There is a lot of fuss about Bellinger, Dave Roberts decision, And a bullpen game, but the attack underperformed significantly at once.
Since the beginning of August, the Dodgers attack has been ranked 15th in Run (161) and 17th in OPS (.730). Conversely, the pitching staff owns Sterling 2.32 ERA. The average lineup is not the only one with such talent. They should be great.
In addition to Bellinger’s terrible season, Chris Taylor, Max Muncy and Justin Turner have all been sluggish in recent weeks.
Surprisingly, Taylor owns the highest strikeout rate (35.3%) in the Dodgers since August 1st. Yes, it’s even higher than Bellinger. To add more context, it is the fifth highest K rate in the major during that time frame. Taylor’s .192 batting average over that span is also amazing.
Taylor is leading the Dodgers in a game played this year, can a huge workload finally be worn by a super utility man?
Manchester’s decline isn’t as serious as Taylor’s decline, but that’s another big reason. Dodgers attack is sputtering.. Earlier this year, Muncie was a candidate for MVP and a proud owner of .972 OPS. After the All-Star Break, Muncie has dropped to .834 OPS, but more importantly, his walking rate has dropped from 18.2% to 9.1%.
Of the three, Justin Turner may be the closest to regaining his ditch.Veteran clubd two home runs in TTuesday 7-2 victory in St. Louis.. Still, Turner hit .216 in August, scoring just three doubles with 74 at-bats.
It’s hard enough to chase a quality Giants team, but it’s even harder when half of the day-to-day fielders are depressed.
If the Dodgers intend to win the division, it must start with an attack.
You also need to get started now.
