Do the Dodgers deserve to be in the playoffs? Not really. Even with Manny, the team isn't as good as the Braves, Cards, Reds (hard to swallow there), Giants and Padres. I am still leaving baseball magic open but they will have to win this weekend series with the Nats. No playoff team should lose to the Nats in both series' unless Strasburg has pitched twice. I am going to blame the bats on this one. This team reminds me of the 2007 team but even they weren't done by this time three years ago. This team may end up being the 2005 Dodgers. Hey, good thing we traded for Octavio Dotel!
