The Dodgers And Their Second Half Struggles

Last night's game was nice to see, as the Dodgers scored as many runs in one game as they did in four games in Atlanta. Since the All-Star break, the Dodgers have scored just 3.19 runs per game in 32 games. In the de facto second half, the Dodgers don't have a regular with an OPS over .775, and only have two with a .400 slugging percentage. Here's a look at every Dodger with 10 or more starts since the All-Star break:

Dodger Regulars Since The All-Star Break
Player Starts PA BA/OBP/SLG OPS
Furcal 17 76 .250/.368/.406 .775
Ethier 28 124 .248/.331/.413 .743
Podsednik 19 86 .295/.360/.359 .719
Carroll 23 99 .282/.367/.341 .709
DeWitt 11 39 .270/.308/.378 .686
Martin 15 54 .271/.352/.333 .685
Theriot 16 71 .295/.362/.311 .674
Kemp 29 121 .248/.306/.367 .673
Loney 30 124 .217/.274/.339 .613
Blake 27 112 .216/.277/.324 .600
Ausmus 10 37 .152/.243/.152 .395
Team 32 1170 .233/.301/.325 .627

Only the Mariners and Mets have a worse second-half OPS, and only those two teams and the Royals have scored fewer runs than the Dodgers since the All-Star break.
