@MarkSimpson1 Good analysis - what do you think about shortstop, mark? I think as far as the bullpen, JP Howell needs to get used less as a situational lefty and more as a one-inning guy - I think he wore down at the end because he got up so often.

1.13 ERA. The ERA after that was 13.50. The Cardinals hit 148/193/284 in the
first six innings and 400/431/689

Why bat for Greinke in the 5th when you know you have a short (and unreliable) bullpen?

July 8 2014 - Tigers score 14 runs on 14 scoring plays. Their BABIP for the game is .625. June 27, 2011 - Dodgers score 15 runs on 15 scoring plays at Minnesota. BABIP for the game is .524. No idea what the record is for most single run scoring plays in a game is or what the best team BABIP for a game is.

Thanks, Mike - you made the first 72 games tolerable, the next 94 games the thrill of a lifetime and the final 6, well, tolerable again - sigh. For what it's worth, Kershaw is 4-9 overall against the Cardinals and 1-6 in St Louis. The Cardinals beat him 4 times this year - not all his fault, as he got Kershawed in game 1. Clayton is 3-0 in NLDS play but 0-4 in NLCS play - something he'll get right, I'm sure. Clayton only got Kershawed 8 times in the 2013 regular season (surrender 2 or fewer runs in 6+ innings, loss or no decision) compared to 9 times in 2012.

Oh God, Mike, I loved the "Puig failed to hit a 15-run homer in the bottom of the 8th".

@DeucesWild My life as a Dodger fan started when my mom took me out of school to go to my grandparents house (they had a color TV) to watch Sandy Koufax pitch game 7 against the Twins in 1965. My favorite 1988 memory was Scioscia's HR off of Doc Gooden in Game 5 of the NLCS - started a train that did not stop. Hard to imagine 25 years have gone by without another title.

@I Alivandi "Long Shot" is a good read, by the way.
thanks for the laugh!

It's a little sarcasm - lighten up a bit. It does, however, mean the offense is horrible, as I predicted at the end of the 2012 season. In 2012, Bochy wasted far fewer ABs on clearly underperforming offensive players than Mattingly did - that's among the reasons the Giants win and the Dodgers don't.

Wow - 2300 words on AJ Ellis - that's just fantastic! Hoping for a great 2013 from him if Donnie can just not have Gordon and Crawford at the top of the order.
