The Dodgers have had 602 plate appearances since the All-Star Break, close to the equivalent of a single individual season. Their offense in that time: .199 batting average, .268 on-base percentage and .297 slugging percentage.  By comparison, Garret Anderson’s numbers for the season are not much different – or aren’t different enough, anyway: .184/208/.276.

Before the break, the Dodgers were at .269/.338/.406. Now that’s different.

Averaging 4.8 runs per game before the break, the Dodgers have averaged 2.1 since.
