While five days certainly feels like a long time for a team to have off, it sure seemed like it went by in the blink of an eye for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Shortly, the final MLB Wild Card round will produce a winner and determine what team the Dodgers will face in the 2022 NLDS beginning Tuesday at Dodger Stadium.
With four days to go before the beginning of the 2022 NLDS, the Los Angeles Dodgers still have a few decisions to make regarding the player roster. We already know that Joey Gallo’s in, pretty much cementing the position-player side of things, although some believe that Hanser Alberto and Miguel Vargas might be competing for one of the final spots.
For as high of a ceiling the Los Angeles Dodgers’ offense has, it also has an extremely low floor. I’m not necessarily talking about the last handful of games that matter little at the end of the regular season as much as I’m thinking about the consistency over the entire year.
For some baseball fans, the concept of a record-breaking season seems unfulfilling unless it’s accompanied by a World Championship, especially if they’re fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers. It’s crazy to think that a season that begins with preparations in February and often lasting into November can be forgotten so easily if the team fails to bring home the top prize.
Even though just a handful of regular season games remain before the beginning of the postseason, the pitching staff projections for the playoffs seem to be changing for the Dodgers daily, and in some cases, by the hour.
25 games might be the ideal amount of time to prepare for a postseason run in terms of deciding roles, resting starting pitchers and looking at players who previously may not have been considered.
But those 25 days could also be a potential pitfall if any injuries occur to a key player.
We have come to the final home stand, and last six games of the Los Angeles Dodgers 2021 regular season. And while not impossible to overtake the division lead, it seems as though the Dodgers will head into the playoffs as the first NL Wild Card seed.Continue reading “Three Dodgers That Need to Step Up During the Playoffs”
The Los Angeles Dodgers continue their quest to win the 2020 World Series today by starting a best-of-seven series against the Atlanta Braves in Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
The Dodgers on Wednesday morning announced their 28-man player roster for the opening round of the 2020 playoffs, which begins Wednesday evening against the Brewers at Dodger Stadium.
While we all know that there’s a very good chance the Dodgers walk away with the National League’s top playoff seed, what we don’t know is how the team will put together its starting playoff rotation.
