In anticipation of the second half, Baseball Prospectus examines what ails every team in the NL West and offers suggestions to fix those problems. Dr. BP knows exactly what lineup changes are needed to boost the Dodgers' offense, recommends going to the reliever pharmacy for the Rockies, suggest an offensive booster shot for the Giants, advocates for several amputations on the Diamondbacks' roster and prescribes laughter -- in a 275-pound pill -- for the Padres. So take a spoonful of medicine and then move on to the NL East and NL Central.
