Leading the division at the break by 1/2 a game does not auger well for the Dodgers. Looking at the schedule for the 2nd half, there are a lot of road games against some good teams -4 Pirates, 3 Braves, 3 Nats, 3 Reds & 6 Giants, not to mention 3 Mets, 4 Cards, 3 Marlins, 3 Rockies & a couple more D'Backs. They are 20-24 on the road against mainly weaker teams. Unless the team can start supporting their pitchers and giving them some runs to play with, especially some late innings insurance, they will struggle in the second half of the season. I am hoping Kemp can help lift them and also they can find another hitter to support him as there are no hitters at all in the current line-up other than Kemp (Ethier went off the boil after he signed his contract).

No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda
