The Dodgers have been lurking around the top of the baseball kingdom for the past seven years. They almost tasted all the glory. They’ve been so close, whether it was one broken Hanley Ramirez rib in 2013 or the bang of a trash can, followed by a charging whistle, in 2017.
It is something that will forever be the bane of the Dodgers’ 2017 World Series run. The Houston Astros cheated in their endeavor to win the World Series, which of course proved successful for them. Today, Commissioner Rob Manfred handed down punishment to the organization.
Seven straight National League West titles and two NL pennants. Those credentials alone are enough to show how much the Dodgers have dominated the senior circuit over the last seven seasons.
Taking a page from our buddy Scoop’s baseball handbook, we thought it would be a good time to take a look at how the Dodgers are projected to fare in Las Vegas, now that a few of the big names are off the free agent board.
Is too much eagerness a bad thing? It is if you’re a parent or guardian and Christmas is coming and you have a small child in your household. And it can be for a baseball team too, one that has tasted the World Series twice in the last two years and have yet to win that ring.
Another season has come to an end, and another year where Dodgers are left wondering what might have been.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were handed a stunning 9-6 loss at the hands of the Boston Red Sox in game four of the World Series on Saturday evening.
It took every bit of 18 innings and seven plus hours, but the Dodgers have finally won a game in the 2018 World Series.
Undeniably, it’s easy to discredit the decisions of the Los Angeles coaching staff seconds after they implode. Two critical bullpen moves during the first two games have played large in both outcomes, putting the Dodgers in an extremely deep hole as the World Series moves Westward. As bad as the decisions may have been, the personnel involved in both of the substitutions was even more puzzling, as the moves were ultimately questioned by everyone who witnessed the game, including supporters of the Red Sox.
