There obviously is never time to lose focus while in the middle of a playoff run, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are now in a position where they are most likely not to see the ace of whomever their opponent in Game One.
Both offenses have been known to catch fire at any time (with the Cubs, they remained strong after the NLDS last year and catapulted themselves to a World Series). But is it unoriginal to say that LA has looked more like a winning team throughout each postseason game this year?
I mean, they have yet to lose (knock on wood), and they have the luxury of sending their ace, Clayton Kershaw, to the mound to kick off the NLCS in Los Angeles on Saturday. So, really, the chances to get out to an ‘always positive’ series lead to start, may very well be in-check. Whether the deciding game of the second NLDS says much, Los Angeles will have their hands full; but at the very least, they will be well-rested, well-focused, and ready to win ball games.
