It's the schedule

Joe Sheehan at Baseball Prospectus makes the point that the Dodgers' extremely poor run after the All-Star break came against the National League's best teams (minus the Mets), and the winning streak that stopped at 11 last night came against the poorer teams.

Also yesterday, Dodgers on Demand had its official unveiling as a 24/7 channel on the Time Warner digital cable lineup.
