Fans who pay close attention to the Dodgers’ farm system know that the last two seasons where like no other in recent history. In 2020, there was no minor league season at all due to the coronavirus, with only a select few prospects eligible to establish a regular schedule at the team’s alternate training site. Last year, just about every possible player who was mature enough and eligible for promotion got a shot in the majors, showing us just how talented — or untalented — the farm system actually is.

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.Continue reading “The 2021 Los Angeles Dodgers and Those Before Them: Teams to Be Remembered”
Once again this season, the Los Angeles Dodgers find themselves on the brink of elimination.

“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?Continue reading “Dodgers Season Depends on Offense Showing Up in Game 5 of the NLDS”

So you’re saying there’s a chance.
On Wednesday, a crazy thing happened. The Los Angeles Dodgers won, and the San Francisco Giants lost. And then on Thursday, the Giants lost again, to the San Diego Padres.
