LA are only one game over .500 and 5 games back of division rivals San Francisco and a lot of problems have come up over the reason the 241 million dollar payroll is not producing the expected World Series winning team come early October. The offence, pitching and fielding has all been blamed individually but it is most likely a mixture of all three. Today we will look at the pitching, and more specifically, the bullpen.
The leader for the ERA in the team is Brandon League and if you have seen the Dodgers over the past few years then you would find that this years League is a lot different to last years League. The Hawaii native went 6-4 with a 5.30ERA and blew many of the Dodgers lead while going for the save and was replaced as Kenley Jansen as the closer. This year League is 1-1 with only a 1.40ERA and has been one of the most trusted pitchers out of the pen during the 17 games in which he’s made an appearance.
