We’re halfway through 2018 Major League Baseball, which means the time is ripe for a Dodgers check in with KPCC’s resident baseball experts Larry Mantle, A Martínez and Nick Roman.
Despite experiencing what many have claimed to be a notorious World Series hangover and a rough stint of disabled key players, the (blue) Los Angeles team has finally managed to stage a comeback. They’ve come from sitting at 16-26 in May to being tied for first place with a 47-39 record before heading into their series with the Los Angeles Angels this past weekend. The Angels took two out of the three games in the freeway series.
So what’s changed? And can Dodger fans stay hopeful for long? Our triple play blue buffs are back with a toothy roundup of this season’s highs and lows.
