After getting the shit kicked out of them by the Angels about a month ago, the Dodgers have been respectable against some middleweight opponents.
They went home bruised from Anaheim and took 2 of 3 from the Brewers as Milwaukee began its tailspin
They took 2 of 3 from the hapless Cubs
They then feasted on the dregs of the NL on a fortuitous roadtrip:
Took 2 of 3 from the Expos in Washington
They nabbed 3 of 4 from the Pirates
The fun stopped on their way back home, as they dropped 3 straight in San Diego.
Back home they lost 2 of 3 in their interleague color rivalry with Toronto.
Better news on the homestand came early this week when they swept 3 from the suddenly human Mets.
With a day off Thursday, the Dodgers, along with 100,000 bored SoCal Raider fans who think they look better in Blue than in Silver and are trying to act macho and proud while you ignore the homoerotic undertones of their group hug lifestyle, they are looking for revenge.
The Angels have won all but 2 series since splitting 4 with Kansas City (they lost 2 of 3 the White Sox at home in early May and 2 of 3 to the Tigers in MoTown near the end of that month).
In addition to schooling the Dodgers in the art of the broom, May saw the Halos sweep the Yankees in the Bronx at Hillary Stadium as well.
