But still, lol Dodgers.
Dodgers are fucked. They currently have only one true dominant pitcher(Kershaw) now that Capuano and Harang are starting to come back down to earth and are showing their true colors. Not to mention they will also have to rely on Beckett and Blanton to pitch behind them. I don't give a shit how good your hitting is, when your starters are giving up 4 to 5 plus runs up a game you're going to lose the majority of those games, especially in the NL West where's there's plenty of pitching. Dodgers rotation is overrated and has been over achieving the whole season and that's what's going to keep them from catching the Giants. Well, that and the insanely tough schedule they have coming up in comparison to the Giants schedule. Four against the Cards at home, then two three game series vs the Nats and Reds on the road. Meanwhile the Giants will be playing teams with losing records the rest of the way with the exception of the six games against the Dodgers.
Dodgers only chance is to completely dominate the Giants in those games but that's not gonna happen.
