The first road trip of the season for the Dodgers coincided with a trip to Colorado for the Rockies' season opener, which L.A. won, 10-5. Even KJ made the trip!

The Dodgers go for the sweep tonight in Colorado, having won the second game of the series, 7-2, behind Walker Buehler.

First sweep of the season, and the Dodgers have been relentless at scoring runs (yes, it's Coors Field, but many of them were "small ball" runs).

Now it's on to St. Louis!

We went out for brunch yesterday and watched our game during that, then watched your game later on, at a BBQ at some friends' home. I heard the ESPN crew mentioning how mad the Dodgers were after the Red Sox dominated them in the World series. It could be they will taking out their frustrations all year long on other teams, though I hope not! Surprised

Well, Dodger fans are taking out their frustrations on Joe Kelly, the hometown boy who was an offseason acquisition but has had a part in all three of the Dodgers' losses in this young season--including last night's opening game in St. Louis.

Well, clearly this version of the Cardinals is not the same one we saw when the Dodgers scorched through a four-game series in St. Louis last August.

Dodgers suffer their first shutout of the year, and their first two-game losing streak of 2019.

I sure hope Kelly figures out what it is that's keeping him from being effective. I understand the bullpen will be deeper when the starters return to the rotation and that can't happen too soon! I also didn't like the problems with RISP coming back to haunt the Dodgers. During the first week of the season they didn't have much trouble with that. Is that supposed to hound them forever?

Is it too early to call for a Slumpbuster? Surprised
