Looking Back on the Dodgers 2021 Season with Bright Hope for 2022

Another year has come to a close, and with it memories of what has been tend to creep in. Even though it didn’t end the way Dodger fans wanted it to, it still was a very memorable year.

Aside from the 2020 season, which ended in a championship, this 2021 season will probably be the most memorable for awhile, with all its ups, down, and everything in between.

The 2021 Los Angeles Dodgers and Those Before Them: Teams to Be Remembered

All good things must come to an end, and as such this season, and this rendition of Dodger baseball, shall too.

We as Dodger fans have most likely seen the end of this amazing group of core, homegrown players who when augmented by stealth trades and big signings have made one of the best runs in modern history. Eight straight division titles, with the ninth just out of reach by one game, after winning 106 games. Three World Series appearances, and one Championship. But it still doesn’t feel like enough.

Dodgers Stay Alive After NLCS Game 5 Victory

With a massive 11-2 win against the Atlanta Braves, the Los Angeles Dodgers stayed alive in their hunt to repeat as World Champions. With the victory, also won their seventh consecutive elimination game.

All-star Chris Taylor put the team on his back by homering three times and knocking in six runs. Taylor ended the night 4-for-5. Taylor and AJ Pollock essentially beat the Braves themselves in a way. Pollock homered two times and knocked in four runs, as the two combined for ten RBI. Let’s hope the offense continues to explode in the next two games.

Dodgers Season Depends on Offense Showing Up in Game 5 of the NLDS

“We do our best with our backs up against the wall”.

Chris Taylor said this after the Game 3 loss, and the Los Angeles Dodgers showed up in Game 4, beating the San Francisco Giants 7-2 to force a Game 5. Can that same team show up in San Francisco, or will the offense not show up at all like it didn’t in Games 1 & 3, where the Dodgers were blanked both games?
