You can see it from a mile away. LA will start to coast in Sept, enter the playoffs cold, and flame out in the first round.
We'll see. If someone can get through Kershaw x2, Greinke, & Ryu + that lineup 3 out of 5 games, I'll be impressed.
The problem is the Dodgers are one of those "hot and cold" teams. When the Dodgers are hot, they cant lose. But when they go cold, they go ICE cold. Plus, Kershaw, Greinke, and Ryu have a combined 5 postseason starts, which total to a 6.30 era in 30.0 ip. Its hard to know how pitchers will react in big pressure situations.
If the Dodgers get hot at the right time, they could win it all, but they may be peaking too early. Plus theres the health issue. The middle of their order is the most injury riddled group of star players ever. Puig, Hanley, and Kemp are always banged up.
