This week in the City:  After a brutal series vs the Giants, we ask if the Dodgers have run out of gas even after a series of blockbuster trades to get Ramirez, Victorino, and more.   Why it seems that it was premature to write off the Giants after Melky's suspension, and why the Dodgers are hitting the skids in numerous ways.  How have the Dodgers come up so listless in critical series vs the Giants and Diamondbacks?  Is it not in the cards for the Boys in Blue?  PLUS a Fantasy Football preview show with looks at the best buys in Fanasy Football?  What is the value of the Running Back in fantasy football?  Who are the sleeper picks?   Where do Arian Foster, Aaron Rodgers, and Drew Brees fit in?  AND Random Questions in Hour 2 with Tom in NJ filling in for Kevin on the Cape.
