Here we go again

The last time the Dodgers and Nationals met in the postseason was the classic 2016 NLDS when the Dodgers had to win games four and five or face elimination. They won both, but game five didn’t come easy and is probably one of the best NLDS games in Dodger history. In 2016 the Dodgers turned …

Is Enrique Hernandez the next Dodger traded?

The current LAD front office has made a habit of trading players they traded for in the first place.
