Giants/Dodgers final 12 games

Recommended Posts

Both teams play Tuesday-Sunday the final two weeks. Giants one game lead. Would host game 163.

LA- 3 at Col, 3 at Arz, 3 vs SD, 3 vs Mil

SF- 3 at SD, 3 at Col, 3 vs Arz, 3 vs SD

Hope the opposition gives it their best. Should be good…and then everyone is a Cardinals fan on October 6th.

Last 3 games for the Dodgers against Milwaukee are going to be awesome.

Going to guess that Milwaukee is on cruise control at this point.  They are 5.5 back for the top seed, and 14 ahead for the 3rd.

They could be playing LA for the top spot as long as the Padres don't implode and hand it to SF.

Milwaukee is 5.5 back of SF, and 4.5 back of LAD.  That is a LOT of games to make up.  It is more than the Sox have to make up for HFA with Houston.

So glad divisions championships mean a great deal, should be an incredible final two weeks. Next year, this could be pretty much meaningless. Some of these division/pennant races were as or more memorable than the World Series, and are recalled to this day.

Historically, the National League had a three game tie-breaker and the American League a single game winner take all, which was consolidated when the separate league offices were combined under the Selig coup d'etat in 1999.

Bold & Italics = World Series Champion

  • 2021 NL West San Francisco (97-53) vs. Los Angeles (96-54)
  • 2020 AL Central Minnesota (36-24) over Chicago & Cleveland (both 35-25)
  • 2018 NL Central (Game 163) Milwaukee (96-67) over Chicago (95-68) and NL West (Game 163) Los Angeles (92-71) over Colorado (91-72)
  • 2008 AL Central (Game 163) Chicago (89-74) over Minnesota (88-75)
  • 1978 AL East (Game 163New York (100-63) over Boston (99-64)
  • 1959 NL Pennant (Games 155 & 156) Los Angeles (88-68) over Milwaukee (86-70)
  • 1951 NL Pennant (Games 155-157) New York (98-59) over Brooklyn (97-60)
  • 1948 AL Pennant (Game 155) Cleveland (97-58) over Boston (96-59)
  • 1946 NL Pennant (Games 155-156) Saint Louis (98-58) over Brooklyn (96-60)

Rockies are 45-27 at home. They could mess things up for one or both, though I guess technically if they mess things up for both they really aren't messing things up.

It will be tough for one of these teams being a wild card with over 100 wins.

I’ll definitely be rooting for the Cardinals to beat the Dodgers, because they’re the champs and it potentially helps the Sox. If it’s the Giants in the wildcard, I’d rather see them make it, and have a LA-SF division series.

I actually think any wild card with over 100 wins should have HFA against  a division winner with less wins. A team with over wins travelling to play a division winner is absurd. Regular season should mean something.

I’m definitely in favor of no divisions/balanced schedule and let the seeds fall where they should, but this is the whole point of having divisions matter. If you don’t win, you’re a wildcard no matter what the record is.

If I am Milwaukee I am not throwing Woodruff/Burnes/Peralta against the Dodgers in the last series. If anything 2-3 innings to keep the arm fresh but not giving the Dodgers hitters a look at what they may be seeing in the playoffs.

2 game lead for the Giants with 10 left. Both have late afternoon games.

Dodgers were down to their last out. Won in 10.

Giants and Padres 6-6 in the bottom of the 10th.  Extra inning rule sucks, but nothing they can do now. Hopefully only 10 more days in its current form.

You have to be more confident of the Dodgers fending off the Cardinals in a one game do or die situation due to the strength of their starting pitching.

Padres now get to play spoiler.  Next manager (Bochy, Glenn Hoffman, Francona) yet to be determined.

Giants owning the season series with the Dodgers… the Dodgers actually have to be 3 games better in the final 6, right?

No, if it’s a division tie, they’ll play next Monday in SF.

If it comes to that, good for baseball, but I want the Dodgers gone as soon as possible. Hopefully the Cardinals knock them off next Wednesday.
