I must have died and gone to heaven

For some strange reason, many fans of the Dodgers weren’t overly optimistic about a positive outcome at the beginning of Game 1 on Saturday night at Wrigley Field in Chicago. After all, the Boys in Blue must have been close to exhaustion after laying everything on the line in Game 5 of the NLDS just two days prior, without an opportunity for even a short layover at home. Plus, southpaw Jon Lester had been sensational as of late while the Dodgers’ opening offering, Japanese rookie Kenta Maeda, had recently been showing signs of a somewhat tired and weary right arm.

It wasn’t long ago that much of the overall success of the Los Angeles Dodgers‘ organization was primarily credited to extremely strong roots in the club’s pitching program. While the main philosophy really hasn’t changed moving forward, the 2016 season deviated a bit from the norm, mainly because of the high number of injuries and the fact that upper management has been entrusting the future of the pitching staff to the youngsters, who may be only a season or two away from stardom.

As far as predictions go, it’s been almost impossible to even come close to the scripts played out so far by the Dodgers and the Nationals in the 2016 NLDS.
