I am absolutely delighted to have won tonight’s game, securing another National League championship.
I’m soaking it in — and I never, ever take my team’s success for granted. It is so extremely difficult to get to the World Series.
I don’t have many hobbies besides the Los Angeles Dodgers, so you can certainly appreciate how much this means to me.
The history of our franchise is excellence in the National League and frustration in the World Series. I fully expect that trend to continue over the next 10 days.
But you never know. The 1988 Dodgers were given no chance to beat Oakland, and five games later we were on top of the world.
