The year the Dodgers finally put it all together. This was the team that was finally going to bring the Championship back home after 31 long years.
It’s pretty much taken me this long to be able to pick up the proverbial pen to write about 2019. I’m still longing for the alternate reality where Smith’s shot cleared the fence and the Dodgers took Game 5 in a walk-off. It would have been the perfectly scripted ending after a season with 12 walk-off victories, especially after the back-to-back-to-back rookie walk-off home runs and Dave Roberts predicting a big home run from Smith during the Series.
