It’s no secret that the Los Angeles Dodgers have one the best rosters in baseball, if not the best.
They’ve looked the part too.
But even the best teams have their struggles, and sometimes those struggles can come against some bad teams.
That has been the case for the Dodgers this season against two teams in particular.
Dodgers insider Blake Harris tweeted what the Dodgers current record is against the Colorado Rockies and the Pittsburgh Pirates, two lowly teams in the NL.
The Dodgers in 2022:
Vs. Pirates & Rockies: 2-9 (.182)
Vs. Everyone else: 43-19 (.693)

The Dodgers’ Achilles Heel
Sometimes, even the worst teams in the league can give you fits.
The Dodgers are no different.
If anything, it shows that the Dodgers are human and are experiencing something that any team could experience.
It just happens sometimes.
But still, it has to be frustrating for them that they’ve gone 2-9 against the Rockies and Pirates, while they’ve gone 43-19 against everybody else, including some of the best teams like the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants.
Beating good teams is always a confidence builder for any ballclub.
Losing to lowly teams is frustrating and embarrassing, and sometimes it can deflate a club.
That doesn’t seem to be the case with the Dodgers, but it just goes to show how even the weaker teams can give the best teams fits at times.
You never want to lose to bad teams, but baseball is baseball.
The Dodgers just seem to be really struggling against those two teams.
