    Fervently hope that CK can be the loss stopper that he always is. Of course the offense is on vacation, and may not help him at all. Two wins out of six to these bottom dwellers can't be a good thing as a closing act.
    Like to earn a split on this series at least and end on an up note. That's the best we can do now.
    I thought the bye might initially be a bad thing because off time sometimes kills the momentum, but with the way we've been playing, this might be best.
    We'll see soon enough.

    Dave Roberts again didn’t commit to a Game 1 starter between Julio Urías and Clayton Kershaw. The crux of the decision: who do the Dodgers want lined up to start a Game 5 on regular rest (and who they feel comfortable potentially using in Game 5 on short rest).

    Urias is LA's ace now and Roberts knows it.

    If that series goes 5, LA deserves to lose it.

    Now, that HR was as timely and as good as it gets. Trea was looking worn out or something before that.
    Now lets hold on for Kershaw, amongst many other reasons.

    Gotta feel good about this one. Nice to split, better to win decisively.
    Now a good mojo for the working vacation coming up.
    Too bad about Freddie with the batting title..they did get him on that- but not Julio.
    So glad for Clayton,too.
    What a year he had...

    Can totally see Freddie having a huge postseason and putting the offense on his back

    Was an absolute treat to watch him this season.

    That HR from Trea was super encouraging. He has looked lost for a long time and I'm hoping yesterday gave him the confidence he needed just in time for the playoffs. We can't win a WS if he performs like he did last postseason.

    Urias-Kershaw-Anderson-Gonsolin?

    Short rest starts have never worked out well for us under Roberts. I hope we ride the 4 man rotation and have the bullpen ready if Catman can't go deep

    Nice to be able to get him back on an incentive laden one yr. deal. He needs to get win #200 wearing the Blue.
