Stopped reading after "No."

Thanks.
We'll pick this conversation back up around the winter meetings.

Nevertheless, as long as the Cubs and Dodger's choke like they usually do, I can live with that and be happy for this season.


Yeah, cuz the Bryzzo era Cubs have such a rich history of choking, amirite? :lol:

Matt Adams is on the braves now. Matt Holliday is a yankee. I am not worried about you guys. and have a real playoff team first. it doesn't look good for the redbirds in 2017.

We have been bringing up a lot of young kids from our farm system the past two years so we have to take our lumps a bit. We'll be fine going into next year. If we make the playoffs this year will be just added gravy. But once again, as I have seen for decades now, is the collapse of the Dodgers down the stretch and into the playoffs. Its so predictable its hard to not fall out of your chair laughing. :falloff:
Right behind the Cubs, the Dodgers are my favorite national league CHOKERS. Go Diamond backs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will some one please explain to me what happened to the Dodgers and why they ran completely out of gas. I have never seen a team turn around and go to complete zero like this.

Like we haven't called up a bunch of players (includingvthe Rookie of the Year).

Thought the whole Show Me State thing was for results, not excuses.

Fortunately they got to play the SF Giants - which always inspires them to win a few - I think they need 9 games now to clinch the playoff spot

After an early stretch of 30-4, this current run is not exactly shocking. It's just ebbs and flow of the game. They should right the ship over these final 2 weeks of the season.

But all bets are off in the postseason.

I remember in 1988, I was in Landscape gardening and there was another Japanese gardener on the same street I was working. You could set your clock to the nearest minute by what he was doing, but I asked him what he thought and his exact words was The Dodgers will lose because as a pitcher, Orel Hershiser was no good. Then the Oakland A's said they were disappointed to be playing the Dodgers and had hoped to play a better team. As a Dodger fan you can imagine how sweet that victory was. I was really very glad when O'Malley sold the team because as an owner he did not push for the best team and neglected it in my opinion. I agree that this team could beat the 1988 Dodgers. It would have been classic to have played the Yankees, but sometimes it's wise to be careful what you ask for, so I will leave that one alone and hope for my Dodgers

Yeah, but they got one last year and honestly, they looked exhausted. The should be proud of the success of what they did do though. They was still the second best team in the MLB

As a Dodgers fan, I will say congratulations to your team for an excellent performance and season. This year, however appears to belong to the Dodgers.

No. and we may not get to .500 with all the young kids we have brought up the last couple seasons. Its the growing pains and the ups and downs of transitioning your team to get younger, which we have. Nevertheless, as long as the Cubs and Dodger's choke like they usually do, I can live with that and be happy for this season. Get back to me the last 3 weeks of the season and when the playoffs start. Lets see who is playing the best baseball when the pressure is on. I hope your not too high on your Raiders either this upcoming season. I can't see them getting by the Chiefs and Broncos.


This is hilarious, never seen someone eat so much crow on one post ROFL
