The Dodgers are off to their worst start in 60 years, and in his episode we try (probably unsuccessfully) to find reasons to think they can actually turn things around.

Items this week include the Reds sweeping four games at Dodger Stadium for the first time in 42 years, the Dodgers’ terrible record against last place teams, the weird year so far for Cody Bellinger, plus what the returns of Justin Turner and Logan Forsythe mean.

Also at the quarter mark of the season we give letter grades to different segments of the Dodgers. Spoiler alert: the bullpen didn’t fare well.

Another reminder that we have switched podcast hosts and as a result have a new feed in iTunes.
