The Dodgers have begun the 2019 season red hot. The back-to-back National League champions are considered the best team in baseball by many major outlets to this point in the season.

And yet there are some shortcomings. For all of the success, the Dodgers have had this season both at the plate and on the mound, as of April 11, the Dodgers are a mere 8-6 and are behind the San Diego Padres in the NL West by half a game.

This begs the question: Why? Why are the Dodgers behind the Padres when they are considered the best team in baseball and are scoring runs at a nearly unmatched clip? That’s what I was wondering.

In this article, I break down the good, bad, and downright ugly statistics the Dodgers have compiled to this point this season, and comment on what the team will have to do better and do differently in order to separate themselves from the pack.
