After losing again Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers fell to 31-30 overall, eight full games out of first place in the NL West. They're 13-19 at Dodger Stadium, and only one team in the majors has more losses at home. Their payroll is $240 million. Manager Don Mattingly has "reached his breaking point," according to the Los Angeles Times. In describing the kind of baseball his team is playing, Mattingly used an adverb that relates to manure.
