Slumping Dodgers, Cubs add intrigue to NL race — Tipsheet

13 Setiembre 2017

As in immediately. Yesterday would be perfect. Since we're on the subject of super bullpens, the Dodgers may still make a run at Zach Britton, since they had reported interest in him during the deadline.

The Dodgers and Angels will collide six times during the Freeway Series in 2018, with Los Angeles hosting games July 13-15 and visiting Anaheim July 6-8. Everything has changed at Chavez Ravine. Please don't let the Dodgers be like the government. "There are so many things pitchers learn those first couple of years, and I think Jon is still in that category of growth".

Which begs the question: when will it begin to matter?

"That's part of the job".

L.A. went in front when Yasiel Puig launched his 25th home run of the season in the top of fifth, but the Giants took back the lead in the bottom of the inning, scoring runs on a single to center by Span and an 80-foot single down the third base line by Buster Posey. "You can't not want the ball, because then it's not going to turn out well for you", Gray said before Monday night's game against Arizona.

But the 8-6 win over the Dodgers that ended at 2:11 a.m., following more than three hours of rain delays, wasn't close to the latest game Bochy has experienced.

"You have to feel that way". Even losing 16 of 17, the 2017 Dodgers are 40 games over.500 entering Tuesday's play at 92-52. Only five teams have tied or bested their 17-win single-season run in MLB history, including the 1916 Giants (26, including a mid-streak tie), 1935 Cubs (21), 1947 Yankees (19), 1953 Yankees (18), and 2002 Athletics (20).

The Dodgers are still 3.5 games up on the Nationals for the best record in the NL and the postseason home-field advantage that comes with it, but that lead was much more significant not all that long ago: Following Aug. 25's games, Los Angeles had 91 wins and the Nats had 76.

But Darvish has been ordinary and sometimes lousy, lacking command. Despite its tendency to take off on a tear, New York finished 86-66 and in fourth place in an eight-team league won by the Brooklyn Robins. The Dodger announcers have been putting all kinds of spin on the tailspin with clichés like "every team goes through it" or worse.

"I just focus on what I have that day", he said.

Rangers 5, Mariners 3: Nomar Mazara and Shin-Soo Choo each had two-run doubles for Texas, which snapped a two-game losing streak. The Los Angeles manager himself has endured the toughest stretch of his professional career, counting a 10-year big league playing career — "in any capacity, yeah", he said.

There is some good news for baseball fans in all of this. Losing the NL West would be a fallout of epic proportions, but after what fans have seen thus far, it cannot be ruled out entirely just yet.

Bay Bridge Twist: The first half ends with three home games against the A's and the second half kicks off with three in Oakland.

"A tie was never an acceptable result of a baseball game", explained Steve Hirdt, executive vice president at the Elias Sports Bureau, major league baseball's official record keeper.

Potential downside: The lost opportunity against Northern Colorado and a shorter week of practice after the storm leaves the Gators less than ready for their SEC debut.
