Very Early Offseason Preview — Dodgers

13 Setiembre 2017

Although the Arizona Diamondbacks are nine games back, but are the second hottest team in the majors going 13-3 since the Dodgers started stumbling.

One team they should handle; the other they need to be competitive with.

Damages haven't been fully assessed yet, recovery and repair efforts have no clear or immediate timeline. The Gators use that wake-up call and two weeks of built-up angst to deliver a more serviceable performance along the offensive line, Franks throws the ball as accurately as he did against the Wolverines but with the bonus of actually having open receivers this time, the running game shows a pulse with the assistance of at least some push up front and all told the Gators expose a Vols team that won its opener with Georgia Tech despite being outgained 655-369 and more than doubled up in time of possession. This isn't the first time we've talked about this. After the season-opening series in Los Angeles, the next four trips are three-city swings.

Nothing has changed in Toronto.

Even more than that, they've lost 16 of their last 17 games. My body is still on East Coast time, and the sun is up there.

Not everyone is aware of the peculiarity.

The Indians are chasing that famous 20-game streak achieved by the 2002 Oakland Athletics, along with Chris Pratt and Brad Pitt, and have a great shot to get there as the Detroit Tigers are in town for three games.

AT&T Park was surreal after midnight as the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants faced off in a rivalry game that was unexpectedly sidelined by rare lightning and thunder around the ballpark.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Curtis Granderson will bat leadoff against the San Francisco Giants on Monday. "We put ourselves in a position to win". 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 stumbling Chicago Cubs awarded Milwaukee a three-game sweep over the weekend, allowing the Brewers and Cardinals to move within two games of the division lead. Both teams will get plenty of time at home, and because the first half ends with a three-opponent homestand, the Giants will spend 18 consecutive nights in their own beds. But hopefully that won't be soon.

Either way, it's good to be talking football again, all things considered.

Patrick Corbin took the loss on Friday, while Robbie Ray continued his dominance with the win on Sunday.

It really is curious how a talent-laden team like this can suddenly go into such a tailspin.

The Giants, who were 37 games behind their historic rivals when play began, won for just the fifth time in 17 games. Now in early September, the roles have completely reversed, with the Diamondbacks up 6.5 games in the Wild Card standings, thanks to a 10-game winning streak.

The game was just another in what has turned into Bizarro World for the Dodgers. The Gators made the right call to not play their game with Northern Colorado last Saturday - here or anywhere.

The teams, and a few thousand hearty fans, waited through almost two more hours of thunderstorms.

Delino DeShields, who was 2-for-4 with two runs scored, also had a solo home run to help make a winner out of Cole Hamels (10-3).
