Wishful thinking. I dont see it though. Pitching wins in the playoffs and the Dodgers have great starting and relief pitching. Hope you are right though.
The Dodgers have all the makings of a team that will fizzle.
Most of the team has no playoff experience. They're going to coast into the playoffs, which kills any momentum. Theyre injury prone. They have Brandon League.
Somebody is going to enter the playoffs on fire from battling it out for a spot, and teams who havent been in a big game for a month+ tend to get bowled over.
Kershaw gives them a good shot, but I can see them heading in overconfident and rusty.
