And So the Dodgers Will Play a Wild Card Game, Setting a Postseason Roster & More | Blue Heaven Podcast

Episode 227: “And So the Dodgers Will Play a Wild Card Game”



We’re in the nitty-gritty of the home stretch now for the Dodgers. With 6 games each left for LA and the division leading Giants, there’s a whole lot left on the line. However, as it stands the Dodgers are heading for their second Wild Card berth in franchise history.

With that, we look at the valiant effort put forth by the boys in blue in the second half and call out the soft efforts out of the inter-division rivals in San Diego and Colorado. Next, how have teams fared in the past as Wild Card teams in the postseason? 

LISTEN

Looking ahead, we touch on the do-or-die Wild Card matchup with the Cardinals and set our own winning roster for the postseason.

Plus, is there still a window cracked for the Dodgers to sneak their way to division title number 9 in a row?

    • His decisions already cost the team the division. Unless he pilots them to a championship, he’ll wear throwing the last game at St Louis.

      • Dodgers are going to beat St Louis …..Scherzer is the Paradigm complete opposite of DRRRRR Dave…His DNA will smoke the Cards….I look for the dodgers to win 1-0….Even though they can’t hit, won’t bunt and hit and run, they still have 3-4 guys that will swing only for homers and knock one out. Wainright isn’t Scherzer….Even DRRRRRRb Dave can’t stop Scherzer from going 8 and Trienen would close it…

        • I’m just really worried about the dumb decisions that dumb ole Roberts will make. Everyone knows that he will, which is why they need to fire him this offseason.

  1. You guys are full of sh t, all Robert has done is average a 105-57 record as a manager and the youngest manager to reach 500 wind, he hs paralleled Lasorda and Alston in many ways and will gollow them into the HOF and all you can do is bitch and complain from your couch. We have been ver lucky to have him

    • Timmy and DR sitting in a tree…

      His year long love affair with Cody has cost the team plenty.

      And having good ‘numbers’ because the front office gives him the best talent in MLB is no excuse for playing a .149 BA player FOREVER…

  2. There is definitely some middle ground here and everybody’s position has validity. Under Dave Roberts management, with and without Zaidi’s help, the Dodgers have been Division leaders, as well as MLB leaders, for many years. Some will argue, and with justification, that the Dodgers have one of the most talented rosters so Roberts should be able to have this type of success; and, we now have a World Series (ending a 30+ year drought.) On the otherhand, this season has been particularly trifling in regards to some of Roberts’ most costly, and seemingly ridiculous, decisions e.g., resting hot bats; consecutively playing Jansen when it was obvious he was challenged to close games for awhile there (Of course, that 9th inning 2 outs and 2 strikes Ruf “ball” which was a strike, should have ended the game we were winning against the Giants); and, yes, consistently playing Belli with his 160+ average, in lieu of more offensively talented players. I like Roberts but his decisionmaking has been compromised at some of the most inopportune times. Now Go Dodgers!

    • I agree with Timothy, and I agree with you. Now, let’s just get some Peanuts and Cracker Jacks and enjoy the ride. It’s definately been a long one. GO BLUE!!!
