the Dodgers have always been competent, the fans always want the team to do more than they have though. They have had problems advancing very far in the playoffs, although in recent years they have one of the higher payrolls in baseball. They have cut salary recently, so they are in money saving mode, and the fans don't like this. Dodger stadium is always good for Dodger Dogs, but the fans won't stay for long if the team doesn't keep winning. This year they have had a lot of injuries, but they need to bounce back.
