Dodgers Postseason: Astros Going to Game 5 Has LA Fans Feeling Better

…or maybe a bit mixed.

Reactions from Dodgers fans was all over the place after a game 4 loss ticketed Los Angeles for a game 5 in the NLDS. Anger. Embarrassment. Confidence. Positivity. The Nation can provide and all encompassing range of emotions when it comes to their Dodgers.

Now, after a Houston Astros loss forced a game 5 in the ALDS, the consensus of LA fans found a feeling of confidence for their 106 win team playing in a winner take all.

Some people got the angle our Twitter poll was going for — the positive light at the end of a tunnel.

However, while the vote leaned more into the positive, the comments were… something else.

Playoff baseball definitely brings out the pessimist in people. Thankfully for the Dodgers and their fans, it brings out the best in Walker Buehler, who takes the bump against Stephen Strasburg in this decisive contest at Dodger Stadium.

What are your thoughts on this poll? Does the Astros loss bring you any semblance of joy or relief?

  1. The Astros playoff elimination would make me feel better not just a game 5. With that being said we’re going nowhere with the lineups we put out there

  2. We have to, first, get through the Nationals tonight. At this moment in time, contemplating an Astros Game 5 loss should be meaningless to us. The moment when the possibility of an Astros loss becomes relevant to the Dodgers is when the Dodgers win our own Game 5. If we don’t win, moot point. With that being said, Go Dodgers!

  3. The bullpen was our Achilles Heel all year. As usual Bellinger disappeared in the post season. Kershaw was terrible as usual in playoffs. And Roberts looked like a deer caught in headlights
