Chris Taylor is what Dodger fans prayed for

You can’t really quantify the impact that Chris Taylor has had on the Dodger season. You could try it with fWAR but you would be missing the complete picture.

Four horseman and a wild horse trample the snakes

You couldn’t have scripted a better beginning to the Dodgers quest for a 2017 World Championship with all the key players in the 104 win season contributing right away. It really was a bing, bang, and a big ole boom as Taylor/Seager/Turner put the Dodgers on the board 3 – 0.  Bellinger walked and showed off …

The confounding Lester

The lasting image of Jon Lester beating the Dodgers for the NLC crown is of Enrique Hernandez dancing like a fool off of 1st base. His job was to rattle the man who had thrown over 2,000 innings while being one of the best October pitchers of his generation. Predictably it did not work and …

Cody Bellinger – Sooner or later?
