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.
After carrying a one-run lead into the fifth inning, the Dodgers eventually lost 4-2 in Game 2 of the 2018 World Series on Wednesday night against the Red Sox. Los Angeles has dropped the first two games of this series in Boston and find themselves in a 2-0 deficit with the series set shifting to Los Angeles.
Despite the Dodgers and Red Sox going punch-for-punch for a good portion of the 2018 World Series Opener, pinch-hitter Eduardo Nunez crushed an Alex Wood slider in the bottom of the seventh inning, stretching the Boston lead to four and ultimately securing an 8-4 victory.
Though the year was as rough and unpredictable as it possibly could be, the Dodgers once again find themselves four wins away from winning a World Series Championship.
