The offense has been inconsistent.
The bullpen has been awful.
But the Dodgers’ starting pitching has been very good.
Only the Astros starters have a better earned-run average than the Dodgers this season.
Men’s softball league started tonight in Ankeny.
We lost 19-17 — not much defense!
But everyone had fun and nobody got hurt. I hope I can say that every week.
Things I learned this weekend while lounging around Ankeny swimming pools:
The good thing about the Dodgers’ bad play is I can watch the games with a little less stress, knowing that they’re not a very good team right now. Just enjoy the games for what they are, rather than worrying constantly about where we are in the standings.
And, to quote Harlan coach Curt Bladt, we’ll let the chips fall where they may.
