Dodgers mailbag: Should they pursue slugger Jose Bautista and outfielder J.D. Martinez?

The Dodgers are 32-20. That translates to a 100-win pace, even if the team is still in second place in the National League West. After winning 10 times in 12 games, the Dodgers have cut Colorado’s division lead to a half-game. The Rockies have not fallen off, but the Dodgers appear to be hitting their stride. They swept the Cubs at Dodger Stadium, went 8-2 on the homestand and captured a series opener Monday in St. Louis.

Here are the pitching matchups for the rest of the week at Busch Stadium:

Tuesday: RHP Kenta Maeda (4-2, 5.08 ERA) vs. RHP Michael Wacha (2-2, 3.66 ERA)

Wednesday: TBD (likely LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu [2-5, 4.28]) vs. RHP...
