Russell Martin: Dodgers ‘Want To Win’ Remaining Games But ‘Definitely Ready’ For Start Of Postseason

The Los Angeles Dodgers have avoided the pitfall that came on the 2017 club, which lost 16 of 17 late in the season en route to also clinching the National League West, but they also have not consistently played their best stretch of baseball recently.

With a seventh consecutive division title secured and likely the top seed in the NL playoffs, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has used the past few weeks as an evaluation period and opportunity to focus on getting players healthy.

Following Saturday’s loss to the Colorado Rockies, Roberts acknowledged there very much is a checklist he is processing through lineups and in-game decisions.
