Here we go, we are back, the Los Angeles Dodgers are about to begin their run for their first World Championship since 1988. For the eighth straight season the Dodgers have won the NL West title and are once agin the favorites to win the World Championship. The title has eluded the Dodgers for over thirty years (let’s remember we were screwed out of back to back titles by two cheating low-life scumbag organizations) and every year I sit on my couch, depressed and questioning why I spend so much money and invest so much into the ball club.

I have made it perfectly clear that this series scares me to death, best of three series are not what baseball is about and this is a complete crap shoot. If the Dodgers can get through this series against the Brewers, then I like our chances to take home the title this season. For once, I feel like this could be our year and that scares me to death. Usually I am negative, glass is half empty when it comes to the Dodgers in the post-season.

Walker Buehler will get the ball in game one and I for one am thrilled about that. He is the best arm on staff and he also takes the ball in the pivotal first game to alleviate the post-season pressure that has plagued Clayton Kershaw.

The offense has been functioning at a high level down the stretch and I love the lineup that Dave Roberts has put in place for game one:
1. Mookie Betts – RF
2. Corey Seager – SS
3. Justin Turner – 3B
4. Max Muncy – 1B
5. Will Smith – C
6. Cody Bellinger – CF
7. A.J. Pollock – LF
8. Edwin Rios – DH
9. Chris Taylor – 2B

This game is crucial, if we lose, I will be in full negative mode tomorrow. I will be begin tossing the wood into the fire and stoking the blaze that will be one of the most phenomenal spin zones your eyes have ever seen. If we lose, this shortened season will illegitimate and if we win, it will be the greatest climb up the adversity mountain in the history of organized sports. Plain and simple, I am bracing myself for the worst but cautiously expecting the best.

The Brewers are a team that has a lot of potential offensive fire power, the pitching leaves a lot to be desired. They enter the post-season with a losing record, 29-31. I should not be overly concerned but here we are with a knot in my stomach gearing up for the 2020 post-season. You got to keep the faith. Time to open up the veins and bleed blue.
