Dodgers Week 17 In Review: It's Over

The Dodgers had their chance to make a push last week, facing the leaders in both the division and wild card races. However, they reverted to deadball era tactics, with no offense to speak of, losing five of six to the Padres and Giants, effectively putting a nail in the coffin of the 2010 Dodgers season.

As it stands now, the Dodgers are six and a half games out of the wild card, with four teams ahead of them, with 57 games to play. Barring a miracle, this season is over.

Dodger Batter of the Week:   Brad Ausmus had one hit in two at-bats, plus a walk, so he easily wins the award. Rafael Furcal was easily the best hitting regular, and he hit .190/.320/.381. I was tempted to give this award to Ronnie Belliard, who didn't even come to the plate this week once.

Dodger Pitcher of the WeekChad Billingsley made two starts, and didn't allow a run, so he wins. The pitching was wonderful this week, but when you can't score you can't win.

Week 17 Record:  1-5
11 runs scored (1.83 per game)
19 runs allowed (3.17 per game)
.269 pythagorean winning percentage

Season Record:  54-51
459 runs scored (4.37 per game)
454 runs allowed (4.32 per game)
.505 pythagorean winning percentage (53-52)
