The Dodgers just completed the best season in the LA Dodgers history and some fans are still unhappy! I am convinced that if the Dodgers win the World Series and don’t sweep everyone, everygame, some fans will say “Yeah, but they did it the hard way – they should have won 11 games in a row. FAZ should be fired!”
The Dodgers just took two out of three from the Rockies and people still complain. What I am about to tell you falls into the “Watch and Learn” Department:
How the Dodgers hit and pitched in the last 35 games of the season is not how they will play in the playoffs. Some of what they have been doing is to confound the advance scouts who have been in abundance at the Dodgers games. After the Dodgers got the huge lead, they altered their game plans, which is very smart. Others teams won’t expect what is coming in the playoffs. Watch and Learn.
How do I know this? I know. FAZ is smart – we all know that. But they are smarter than you and I can imagine. It is not out of the realm of probablility that they are deliberately blowing smoke to obfuscate what they intend to do in the playoffs.
