Boston Still Needs to Win One More

October 28, 2018

Did Alex Cora make a mistake by staying with ERod in the 6th? As a Dodger fan, I say absolutely not. A 3 run jack by Puig put the Dodgers up 4-0. And the Dodgers have not lost with a 4 run lead all year long. 54-0. But what will Boston fans say? Well now they could care less because of the lack of a bullpen by the Dodgers. And…

Thanks to a Max Walk Off – We Have a Series

October 27, 2018

WHAT A GAME!!!    18 innings – 7 ½ hours.  My nine-year-old granddaughter picked a great game to see her 1st ML baseball game.  My daughter-in-law and granddaughter were decked out in Dodger gear, while my son was non-committal.  They stayed all 18 innings.  He just texted me (1:35 AM) and said UNBELIEVABLE!   Max Muncy comes close in the 15th, and then unloads going oppo in the 18th for the…

FAZ Believes Strikeouts Are The Same As Any Other Out

October 26, 2018

Do you Seriously believe that? If you really think that FAZ is really that stupid or if you believe that because it fits your own personal narrative, then you should probably stop reading right about now… because what I am going to say will really piss you off! My 9 year-old grandaughter knows that moving a runner, productive outs and sacrifices are most generally better than strikeouts.  Only hitting into…

Slip Slidin’ Away

October 25, 2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5anMTZjVsL8 The nearer your destination, the more you’re slip slidin’ away! Being down 2-0 in the World Series is not indicative of anything… except that you are two games away from being swept.  I guess we are not surprised.  It’s been this way throughout the season – these guys can look horrible and then come back the next game and score 15 runs.  Somehow, I don’t think that is going…

Game 2 – Let’s Get Even

October 24, 2018

This is what I was thinking as Game 1 approached.   The game we have been waiting for since November 1, 2017 and the opportunity to wipe away all the anguish of a 30-year drought. I have had a busy day and have discovered I am not as nervous about this series as I was the one with the Brew Crew. I don’t think it is because I feel the…

It’s Time For Some Unfinished Business…

October 23, 2018

A couple of days ago, Ken Gurnick wrote this: Corey Seager’s elbow blew out, and the Dodgers found a way. The entire starting rotation went on the disabled list, and they found a way. Kenley Jansen’s heart raced, and they found a way. They even found a way to overcome a nine-game deficit in the National League West. And on Saturday, the Dodgers found their way back to the World…

LA Dodgers vs. Boston Red Sox – 2018 World Series

October 22, 2018

WELCOME TO THE FALL CLASSIC 2018!! By the time the Dodgers and Red Sox square off in Game 1 of the 2018 World Series, it will have been 356 days since the Dodgers went down in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series.  It will be 30 year’s this month since the last Dodgers WS victory.  This year’s WS can make all of those bad memories go away (at least…

Farhan Was Right All Along

October 21, 2018

It took 174 games, but the Dodgers are heading back to the World Series. As I stated yesterday, it seems like this team needs to have their backs against the wall before they kick it in gear.  From the shouts that we are going to single them to death to come back to getting a 2 run HR and a 3 run HR to beat the Brewers in Game 7….

The Kershawshank Redemption

October 18, 2018

I used to own www.kershawshankredemption.com, and it may mean more to me than it does to you… or not, but Game #5 was a real redemption for one Clayton Kershaw from his previous bad outing. He’s now 9-8 with a 4.11 ERA in the postseason. IF he can keep that up, he can get his cumulative postseason ERA to below 4.00. This year, Clayton’s playoff ERA is 2.50 with a…

CO-DY, CO-DY, CO-DY

October 17, 2018

In a game that started so positively for the Dodgers, quickly morphed into what we have come to expect…a lot of strikeouts, inability to create runs, and questionable player changes during the game.  But it was all a prelude to what may go down as the THE GAME to take the team to a WS Championship.   I always like it when the leadoff hitter gets on base.  After a…
