The Dodgers are Primed to Make Franchise History

The Dodgers have a chance to make history.

The Dodgers have had an incredible season thus far. Heading into play on Wednesday, Los Angeles sits at 76-40, leading the National League West by a whopping 18 games.

They have never finished 14 games in front of the NL West, let alone 18 games. The franchise record for wins is 106. The Dodgers can definitely get it done.

Former Dodgers broadcaster Ross Porter hits us with more details.

The Dodgers will need to finish out the season going 30-16 in their last 46 games. That is more than doable, as they have won 74 of the 114 games this season. Although the Dodgers have a chance to make history in the regular season, the focus should not be on having a big lead in the NL West or winning 106 regular-season games.

The focus should be on winning the World Series.

Keep in mind; the 2017 Dodgers team had 104 wins, which led to a World Series appearance. The Dodgers should be focused on winning the World Series this season, after falling just short of it the previous two seasons.

At the end of the day, what matters in sports is who wins the championship, just like we saw with the Golden State Warriors in 2016. Most people don’t remember they won 73 games and lost just 9, because they blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. Same for the Dodgers. Most people don’t remember that they won 104 games in 2017, they remember the back-to-back losses in the World Series.

The Dodgers should still aim for 106 wins this season, but their main focus should be on winning the World Series.
