Three Reasons I’m Optimistic About The Dodgers World Series Chances

The Dodgers are in an 0-2 World Series hole. The naysayers among us believe it’s all over but the strike outs – but I’m not one of those.

Here are three reasons why I’m still optimistic about the chances for the Boys in Blue to get off the ground and fight their way to victory – 2018 Dodgers style!

I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

  1. I would be a lot more optimistic if they would at least try laying down a bunt, or going the other way. David Freese is hitting .600 in this series. 2 of his 3 hits have gone to right and the other was up the middle. Only 6 of the 13 position players on the team have gotten hits. And they have one extra base hit. Matt Kemp’s homer, other than that, the other 11 hits are singles. They have struck out 20 times and have 6 walks. Kemp, Machado and Puig are the only players with a run driven in. Pederson, Muncy, Bellinger, and Grandal all in the starting lineup tonight. They need to put pressure on Boston and they need to do it early and often. 2 keys, Buehler needs to get a clean 1st inning. Then the offense needs to step up and score. Take the pressure off the kid so he does not feel the need to have to be perfect. Give him a little margin for error. That way they just might win game 3. They lose this one and it is pretty much adios amigos.

      1. Well since the game went 18 innings and there was very little offense, not really. What put them in a position to win was great pitching for the most part. Jansen and Alexander were the ones who allowed the runs. Jansen gave up another World Series homer, this time to Jackie Bradley Jr. Alexander walked a batter and made a crucial error. Pederson did hit a homer and Puig had a clutch infield single that along with Kinslers error led to the tying run. Muncy won it with the 4th walk off hit in Dodgers world series history. I do not like it when Roberts asks Jansen to go more than 1 inning and tonight proved why. He gets 2 quick outs in the 8th and then gives up the dinger that cost Buehler the win.
