Sure they probably should have won in San Diego on Thursday, but a 4-3 intradivisional road trip can't be thought of as anything but a success. Think of it this way: if the Dodgers keep going 4-3, that's a 92-93 win pace.
Dodger Batter of the Week: Matt Kemp, who hit .375/.385/.583 with a home run and a stolen base, and has a seven-game hitting streak
Dodger Pitcher of the Week: Ronald "Pumpkinhead" Belisario, who made his major league debut with 4.2 innings of making batters look silly, allowing three baserunners while striking out eight.
Week 1 Record: 4-3; 32 runs scored, 23 runs allowed (.659 pythagorean winning percentage)
Upcoming Week: six games at home; three against the Giants followed by three with the Rockies
Monday is the home opener at Dodger Stadium against the Giants, with Chad Billingsley facing off with ageless wonder Randy Johnson. Game time is 1:10pm, but the gates will open at 10:40am. Pregame ceremonies, which will include the amazing Vin Scully throwing out the first pitch, begin at 12:35pm.
