Are the Dodgers the best second-place team ever? Maybe. But you have to admit those New Jersey Generals (14-4 in ’84) were pretty good too. LA finished up 106-56, a game back of the Giants and 16 better than their opponents, the Cardinals. Max Scherzer (15-4) is 7-5 in postseason play and went 3-0 for the Nats during their 2019 championship run. Max struggled in his last two starts, allowing 10 earned runs over 10 ¹/₃ innings. … About a month ago, the Mets were still in the wild-card hunt. The Redbirds put an end to that pipe dream by winning 20 of 22 down the stretch. Adam Wainwright (17-7) was a big contributor, going 5-0 in his last seven games. Adam is 4-5 in the postseason but has won for us numerous times this year. Doggin’ it. 10 units on the Cardinals.
Hit it, Frank. Start spreadin’ the blues. Xander Bogaerts and Kyle Schwarber took Gerrit Cole deep, Nathan Eovaldi allowed one run over 5 ¹/₃ and the Red Sox sent the Stankees home for the winter. Final 6-2. Down -700 buckyboones.
