The former thread was getting too long to scroll through quickly, so here is a fresh one.
The Dodgers kicked the Giants’ butts during the regular season, but the hated ones had that special something that works so well in the postseason. In a short series, the ability to execute plays, hit in the clutch and aggressively run the bases trumps a team that can’t deliver with the game on the line. So while the Giants are playing in their third World Series in the last five years, the Dodgers got an early vacation.
Most of the Dodgers will be kicking back, enjoying the warm California, Arizona or Florida sun golfing, swimming and maybe catching a glimpse of the games on their 80″ HDTVs or burning up the road in a $550K white 2014 Lamborghini Aventador, that shoots flames out the back. Don Mattingly, on the other hand, will be trudging through the snow, in freezing weather at daybreak, to feed his horses and shovel the shit from the stable.
I have enjoyed reading your detailed and well thought out comments, which I think represent a high point for this blog. With the demise from power of Ned Colletti and the hiring of Andrew Friedman, this promises to be a very interesting offseason, that will keep the hot stove burning.
Keep up your great analysis.
