How to fix every playoff contender's biggest problem

For some, it's all about getting healthy. Others have much larger holes to fill. Here's an action plan for each postseason contender to work on before October begins.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers avoided an embarrassing four-game sweep in Philly with a 5-4 win, cutting their magic number to one. The Diamondbacks are off tonight, so the Dodgers can clinch the NL West on Friday with a win at home against the Giants or a Diamondbacks loss to Miami. Other magic numbers: Yankees: 3 (to clinch wild card) Diamondbacks: 4 (to clinch wild card) Red Sox: 8 (to clinch AL East) Cubs: 8 (to clinch NL Central)

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen logged the final four outs in today's 5-4 win over the Phillies. That earned him the right to be interviewed by teammate Yasiel Puig.

As if losing 20 times in a 25-game span weren't bad enough, the Dodgers are now suffering some dings to their lineup mainstays. Corey Seager, who is already dealing with a sore right elbow, has fouled balls off his calf and ankle this week and sat out today's series finale in Philadelphia. And Justin Turner had to leave today's game after being struck in the hand by a Mark Leiter Jr. pitch in the first inning. This is not the way manager Dave Roberts envisioned gearing up for the playoffs.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Do the Dodgers have a bullpen problem heading into the postseason? Through July, the pen had a 2.83 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Since then, it owns a 4.90 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. Kenley Jansen and Brandon Morrow seem like the only reliable relievers of late, but haven't pitched much as the Dodgers have lost 20 of their past 25 games.
