    What a great feeling waking today and remembering that the Dodgers performed in the clutch yesterday and get to move on. We may be overmatched by Boston, and they may crush us. But there's zero chance of winning the WS without getting to the WS. I kind of like playing the David role to Goliath. It worked in '88. And history does tend to repeat itself, at times.

    Not just cause it was the clincher but that felt like the most well rounded victory of the whole series

    Glad a lot of you were wrong on your predictions :D

    read somewhere he made it to 1b in 4 seconds flat on the bunt, which (supposedly) was his fastest time of the year.

    Last night was also nice because Puig had a solid night as our starting RF
    Good fielding and clutch hitting. And the HR to the absolute deepest part of their stadium slammed closed the door
    Puig plays the game like a kid. In a good way. He gets excited, he shows disappointment and he blows simple plays trying to be a hero.
    And then the next days he IS the hero. Again.
    At bat or with his cannon arm.
    And then the day after his cabbage head costs us. Se la guerre.
    He has been making fierce contact for awhile but mostly right at people. Still he's getting better at crushing the ball more and getting fooled stupidly a bit less.
    and the thought of both Puig and Bellinger getting hot right about now gives me shivers

    Kinda surprised Belli won MVP when Puig hit better and collected 4 RBIs, same as Cody.

    It's cuz Cody's white, isn't it?

    I was going to comment the same thing last night. Puig really came through during this series. Would have been nice for him to get it. Belli hit .200 during the LCS but still put his stamp on the series I suppose. Walk-off hit, go-ahead HR, huge defensive play in extra innings, etc.

    still thinking about Counsell letting Jeffres, who looked like shit all series, blow the game open when Knebel, Woodruff, and Soria were still available. Counsell got praise for his proactiveness but that was awful. It wasn't necessarily a bad pitch to Puig or anything to be fair, but still.

    Posted earlier that I thought Counsell was given a false sense of confidence with Jeffress' strong outing Friday.

    It proved Counsell was an idiot
    He was playing the DBB game of double shift everything to show I'm on it. Not.
    Go sit down loser.
    We ALL knew Jeffress was toast as soon as he came in.
    We'd been lighting him up consistently.
    Oh well he's got all winter to ruminate on it
