NLDS- Dodgers vs Padres

Recommended Posts

What the hell is with all of the national writers acting like the Padres won a World Series?

All depends on pitching health.  

Could be Clevinger, Lamet and Gore in MLB debut...could just as easily be Paddack, Richards/Davies, bullpen game.  Meanwhile, LAD lead with Buehler and Kershaw yet again.
 

Rosters are due at 11 a.m. EST.

This Dodgers team is just historically great. I wouldn't be surprised if they only lose 1 postseason game like the 2015 White Sox and 99 yankees. 

Their offense and bullpen are arguably the best in the league. Top 3 at minimum. Starting staff has some great weapons. Defense is worse than I would have expected according to fangraphs. The metrics reallyyy don't like their infield defense.

Dodgers have the better team, but it’s getting closer.  Just can’t go through a bullpen game after game after game.

With a healthy Lamet, Clevinger and the addition of Gore, you’ve got a real series.  Even White Sox fans wouldn’t be very excited about adding Kyle Davies to the back end of the rotation.

Padres vs White Sox is definitely a possibility next season.

Even if Bellinger doesn’t rob that homer, SD doesn’t have the starting pitching to stay in this.

They’ll have to go to Paddack for Game 3, and he just hasn’t been the same dominating presence he was as a rookie.  No matter what options Tingler had/has to choose from, none of them are close to ideal

Not sure what that has to do with a potential White Sox vs Padres world series next year, but I agree. Padres are toast. This dodgers team is too good.

Goes back to a game-winning homer Machado hit against LA in the regular season.

Fine, you have two of the best offenses in baseball.  For the White Sox, it’s all about starting pitching.

For the Padres, it’s Gore’s readiness, health and finding one more starter from Morejon, Patino and Baez.  Will lose Richards, Profar and Rosenthal to FA, although Yates will return and they’d love to keep Profar as well.  

Might look to deal Myers, Mejia and spare pitching depth.

This was as hypocritical from Manny as Cordero hitting Contreras was.

Don't have time to go find the link, but Machado hopped the Padres fence during Hosmer's homer and was hollering.

Which is fine, get hyped. But be prepared for the other team.

I'm elated that your Padres are getting beaten down, @caulfield12. There is no other team I want to lose more than the Padres after they lied about Shields' health. Fuck them.

LOL.

I'm okay.   This wasn't the year, not with all the pitching injuries down the stretch.   Tatis, Jr., met his limitations.   That Bellinger catch turned the series permanently in favor of the Dodgers (finalized when they failed to come back in the 9th against Jansen/Kelly.)  Tonight, he had another opportunity up 2-1 with the bases loaded and two outs against Urias, struck out, and then the Dodgers exploded the next inning.  Those were the two massive  momentum shifts in this series.   Feels like he started to press, because he also made some uncharacteristic defensive mistakes in both series.   That strikeout led to an error the following inning that helped to open the floodgates.

 

Let's not forget our own history trading Sirotka, who hardly was the same pitcher for Toronto (and led to the Keith Law lifetime "grudge")...of course, David Wells and Frank Thomas famously didn't get along either, and Thomas missed almost that entire 2001 season as both teams suffered bad karma.

Sirotka, it turned out, had a damaged shoulder, and never pitched again in the majors. The Jays tried to get Bud Selig to undo the trade or make the White Sox give them another player, but Bud ruled for the White Sox. I thought that teams did physicals on players they are thinking of picking up in trade, I don’t know if the Jays did this time. It wasn’t like Wells was great for the Sox, he only made 16 starts the next year, going 5-7 with a 4.47 ERA. After that season, he signed with the Yankees as a free agent.

It wasn’t an excellent trade for either team, but the Jays had to pay Sirotka $6.8 million over the next years, which was $2.45 million less than what Wells got in 2001 from the White Sox. So even though it isn’t exactly something that wouldn’t be at the top of Gord Ash’s resume, it saved us some money.

Sirotka would never pitch in the majors again.

In the end the Padres had no chance even if they won game 2. The dodgers are the best team in baseball and the Padres missed their two best starters. Can't beat such a good team like that. 

Padres have a good outlook the next 4-5 years with that good farm system and young guys already there but the dodgers will remain hard to beat. 

Essentially the dodgers are now what the Yankees were around late 90s to mid 00s.

Well, we have a number of Sox posters who like to go all the way back to Babe Ruth, 1919, Charles Comiskey, Shoeless Joe Jackson and Kennesaw Mountain Landis in their “Sox franchise is jinxed” rabbit holes.
 

Let’s just say neither franchise has exactly distinguished itself in Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals or Braves fashion over both long and (relatively) short histories.
