The Stage Is Set Dodgers Phillies
The NLCS is set with the Dodgers vs. Phillies and the Rays vs. Red Sox. The hopes of an LA series have faded away with the Angels shortstop failing to execute a squeeze play. Fundamental baseball is so important especially when there is no tomorrow because every play is magnified a 100 times. Eric Aybar will be replaying the missed squeeze all winter long looking to avenge himself in the new season.
But this is a Dodgers blog with the championship series starting is a couple of days the Dodgers have their hands full. The season series was split between the Phillies and the Dodgers with both teams winning all their games at home. Who is going to the World Series? It will be a dog fight to the end. If I was a betting man, the game that the world wants to see is Boston vs. LA; Joe Torre and Manny Ramirez, bringing their battle with the Red Sox to the West Coast.
