Red face Dodgers' Start

Are they really that good, especially without Gagne and Penny, or is it just a fluke? Hey, no East Coast bias here.

I mean, yeah, it's something to be said when you've only lost two games (last time I checked). But still...just like I don't make that much of Yankees' slow start, I can't say I'd be too caught up in the Dodgers' brisk one.

It's still April, so as with the Yanks we just have to wait and see. I mean look at my DRays at 5-9 who would have thought they would have won 5 games already? lol.

Well I know that the NL West is not a difficult division

Dodgers are not that good. The defense is iffy, and I think Kent and Izturis coming back to earth will even out the returns of Penny and Gagne. I expect them to play .500 ball the rest of the season.

Well, it did not take too terribly long for the Dodgers to fall back to the pack.

Swept by the Dbacks last week. And we should have done the same the first time we played them this year.
