As the season begins to round into form, the hopes of Dodgers’ fans do the same. I hear the excitement from a lot of these fans around Southern California, who also feel the anxiety baseball brings to us as we wait for October.
Anxiousness has been the routine for Dodgers’ fans each spring since 1988. During the 29-year drought, the anxiety and depression have only grown with each passing year. Now that the team has secured four straight NL West Division crowns, the sense of urgency has never been greater for this team to win. As October nears, obstacles will begin to arise in front of this team, and it is up to the players to overcome these obstacles and finally end this drought in LA. Here are a few obstacles that are standing in the way between the Dodgers and their 7th World Series Championship.
