Lets put away the pitchforks and fires for now

Last time i checked there are 162 games in a baseball season. Last time I checked the dodgers had been to two consecutive NLCS. We havent reached the All star break let alone half way mark. Last time I checked they are 19-5 within the division.As a fan you have to realize that this 162 games may tug on your emotions. The old adage you are going to loose 60 games and win 60 games. Its what you do in between that time that defines your season. Every team is liable to have a bad month or two. You think the Dodgers are the only team that is going through a tough time. Sure sometimes the team isnt watchable when they play stupid baseball. Look to say this team isnt good enough or doesnt care I point to all the walk offs and 16-10 in one run games. It is no lie that Kemp is struggling. We have to take Martin for what he is which is a little above average catcher. Look Kemp is in a slump and there is no doubt about it but you dont write a guy off like that just because of a terrible June. Look you may not like this but its a 162 game season not 80 or 16 or even 100. It is a mental grind to say the least. As a fan you are never going to be happy because there will be days that your team doesnt show up but you have to realize that these guys are human and that 162 game season is such a grind. This core is still a solid core. Look I am not saying that I happy about the recent funk. Lets remember though the positives in the three Yankee games. They beat up the yankees for 17 innings. In baseball you are never as good or bad as you think you are. Look the sky is not falling so just calm down and let them play.
