Can the Los Angeles Dodgers stay hot all the way to the World Series?
The Los Angeles Dodgers are on pace to fall one game short of the 2001 Seattle Mariners record-setting 116-win season. Even with Clayton Kershaw sidelined with a back injury, the team has been able to sustain their production with good production from every hitting slot. Now armed with Yu Darvish, the Dodgers have four quality starters who can cause trouble in the playoffs.
Once Kershaw returns, there is no one who can keep pace with the Dodgers.
Do you how many wins in July and August count toward playoff wins? ZERO.
Being hot in the middle of the season might be thrilling, but it doesn't mean anything once the records are reset for the playoffs. The ball doesn't travel as far in October, and those hot bats will soon cool off. Plus, there is the ever present threat of the Washington Nationals with one of the best lineups from top to bottom in baseball.
Enjoy the excitement now, Dodger fans—October is going to be very disappointing for you.
