1942

No one much cares how baseball went from 1942-45 because the world was at war and many of the best players were in the US military.

But I just stumbled upon the 1942 National League standings and wow what a pennant race they had that year.

The Dodgers won a whopping 104 games and finished second behind St. Louis.

No surrender: It’s a great time to be a Dodger fan

There’s no surrender in the Dodgers, who rallied from a five-run deficit last night to beat the Mets and their all-world relief pitcher Edwin Diaz.

Like Springsteen and the E Street Band in their heyday, the Dodgers have been hitting on all cylinders for nearly a decade now. The entire organization operates on an incredibly high level.

What a wonderful time to be a Dodger fan! Never take this for granted — it’s very hard to win major-league baseball games.

I especially enjoyed Ken Gurnick’s opening paragraph in the MLB.com game story:

LOS ANGELES — Down by five runs after the seventh-inning stretch, a lot of teams start thinking about tomorrow. But the Dodgers aren’t like a lot of teams.

Dodgers have won the last 16 Kershaw starts

He’s not as dominant as he used to be, but Clayton Kershaw finds ways to give the Dodgers a chance to win.

The Dodgers have won the last 16 games started by Kershaw. That’s an impressive stat.

Also: Cody Bellinger is baseball’s best all-around player in 2019. He’s the whole package.
