It was a wild week for the Dodgers and their fans as they went into the NLDS against the San Diego Padres. As expected, the series did not come and go without tempers flaring or some sort of dramatics. The good news is that the good guys won though! Let’s dive into some of the news surrounding the team this week.
Dodgers players all talked about the exchange that took place between Manny Machado and Brusdar Graterol last week. Graterol threw his glove in excitement after Cody Bellinger’s homerun robbery, and Manny took exception to that. As expected, all players had the rookie pitcher’s back.
Speaking of that exchange, YouTube legend Jomboy did an excellent breakdown of the two teams going at it. Listen in as you get to see some curious lip readings from both the Dodgers and the Padres.
Manny Machado made headlines again when he downplayed a bet that he made with a Dodgers fan. Machado had bet his entire contract that the Padres would win a World Series long before Los Angeles ever got the chance.
With the NLDS now in the rearview mirror, the Dodgers can look ahead to the battle with the Braves for the National League Pennant. Take a look as we do a position-by-position breakdown of the two big teams.
We also did a much deeper dive into the pitching staffs of the two teams, which will likely be the difference-maker in this series.
