Who's afraid of the big, bad wolf? Apparently everybody. The Dodgers are planning to take over the universe, or at least that portion that resides in Major League Baseball. And if the rest of baseball only suspected or feared the possibility, it's all out there now. The Dodgers had what you might consider a pretty good weekend. They huffed and they puffed, and then went out and landed two more starting pitchers. Which only gives them eight, but who's counting? Not these guys.

— Manager Joe Torre had to laugh. The Dodgers pitched well. They didn't make any errors. "And we lost, 1-0," he said. The Dodgers dropped two of three games to the Washington Nationals, the last by a 1-0 margin on Sunday at Nationals Park, in the exact opposite way they dropped two of three in a series of high-scoring, error-filled contests in Cincinnati earlier in the week. The Dodgers' offense suddenly vanished over the weekend, scoring five runs over 31 total innings in Washington, including the 13 innings they played in a 4-3 win on Saturday.

This is turning into a special season for the Dodgers. Special the way their 91-loss season in 2005 was special. Or their 99-loss season in 1992. Just when you think their situation can't become any worse, it somehow does. The Dodgers descended to new depths Friday night at Dodger Stadium when they were beaten, 7-3, by the worst team in baseball. The Houston Astros had won only two of their previous 13 games and were 25-45 overall, but they battered Ted Lilly for six runs and eight hits in 51/3 innings.

In a season in which James Loney's batting repeatedly has come under question, the Dodgers' first baseman has caught fire lately. Loney was three for five with two doubles in the Dodgers' 9-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, and is 11 for 17 in his last four games, lifting his batting average to .271. Loney said his timing at the plate had improved recently and "I just feel like I'm ready every pitch. " Manager Don Mattingly took a somewhat cautious view of Loney's resurgence.

Everything seemed to lag Sunday, and not just because the nine-inning game lasted 3 hours 36 minutes. Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly conceded after his team's 6-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium that he "didn't feel there was a lot of energy out there" for the first time this season. "A disappointing day today for me," Mattingly said. It didn't help that the fourth-place Dodgers entered the game only hours after trading shortstop and clubhouse leader Rafael Furcal , ending any doubt about their hopes to contend over the season's final two months.

Manny Ramirez took one look at the lineup posted on the wall and shouted across the clubhouse. "Change the lineup, Joe!" he hollered as he laughed. Over the next 10 minutes, Manager Joe Torre drew up a new alignment, this one without Ramirez's name. Hit on the left hand the previous night by a fastball from Cincinnati Reds starter Homer Bailey, Ramirez said he expected to be back in the lineup when the Dodgers open a three-game series against the Florida Marlins on Friday.

Among the 3,257 things lost in the Dodgers' dramatic 4-3 victory over the Nationals Saturday night: -- Chad Billingsley rebounded from his only bad start, to pitch seven superb innings. He allowed one run on five hits and struck out six while lowering his ERA to 2.64. --Jerry Hairston Jr. is proving to be so special as a utility player, he's actually become a quasi-starter. He scored the first run Saturday, is batting .289 and is able to play at least three different positions.

Ted Lilly has waited for more than a week to make his season debut. To him, it's felt substantially longer. "It's not like I missed a ton of starts, but it feels like I missed a few," Lilly said. He's missed one, to be exact. Lilly will make his season debut Saturday against the San Diego Padres. "It's been fun watching us win," Lilly said. "At some point, we'd all like to be a part of what's going on. " A stiff neck threw off Lilly's throwing program in spring training, which, in turn, forced the left-hander to start the season on the disabled list.

Hey, what's not to love about 3-1 start on the road? A team will take that any time. And to be sure, there was plenty to like about the way the Dodgers opened the season in San Diego. Which is not the same as liking it all. Some positives: -- Easily the best thing to happen to the Dodgers this weekend was the performance of Chad Billingsley. His start in the second game might have been the finest performance of his five-year career. He was aggressive from the get-go, threw strikes and was in complete command.

Not to distance themselves too much from last year - - wait, is that possible? - - the Dodgers are doing things in April they could barely do all of last season. The Dodgers knocked off the Washington Nationals on Sunday, 2-0, Chris Capuano leading the pitching and James Loney driving in both runs to complete a three-game sweep. The Dodgers have now swept three teams this season, matching their entire total from last season. The victory left them a league-best 16-6, and at no time last season were they 10 games over .500.
