The Dodgers are Really Good

I can talk all night about the pathetic play of the Mariners over the past 3 games, but it would not be fair to ignore the quality of the opposition. The Dodgers showed why they are projected by many to represent the National League in the World Series this fall.

The comeback wins during the first 2 games were executed perfectly, and they dominated from the get go tonight. I’m not making excuses for the M’s, but LA is a great team. They pitched well, they played sound defense and they had clutch hitting.

It is disheartening that Seattle could not keep up with the Dodgers, but hopefully the Texas Rangers will present an easier challenge this weekend at Safeco Field.
