Record 79-75, 4.5 games behind in wild card
Remaining schedule: Padres (2), Rockies (3), Giants (3)
The Dodgers made the biggest trade of the season, acquiring Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett from the Red Sox, but even with their big spending, a 1.5-game deficit to the Giants since the trade has been too much to overcome. The Giants have already clinched the division and the Dodgers need to beat the Brewers and the Cardinals to make the playoffs. The Giants will make the Dodgers' final three games difficult, possibly making the playoffs out of reach.
Prediction: Miss playoffs
