Dodger ‘Pen Looking Ugly
Seven games into the 2016 season, and the Dodger bullpen looks ugly. Really ugly.

The entire rest of the ‘pen came ripping apart in the San Francisco series, giving management a very disturbing preview of what could be lurking down there this season.
After a season-opening three-game sweep of the Padres where the Dodger bullpen wasn’t needed much, you knew its first real test would be against the Giants.
