Wishing upon a star

I would be so very thankful if the Dodgers could get one more win and advance to the World Series.

Feeling lots of anxiety right now. Hoping for the best.

Thank you, JT

Justin Turner is the second Dodger to hit a walk-off home run in a postseason game.

Kirk Gibson was the first — exactly 29 years before Turner’s.

Excellent job, Kersh

Clayton Kersaw pitched great tonight (5 innings, 2 runs) against a very good Cubs lineup.

That allowed us to win Game 1 of the NLCS, 5-2. 

Thank you, Kersh.

Because it’s the right thing to do

I feel like I’m a perfect gentleman when it comes to cheering for my team. I learned this skill from my Dad and my uncle Hub and my brother Steve.

Oh, sure, I get mad as heck when the Dodgers lose and cheer loudly when we win — but only in the privacy of my home.

I certainly wouldn’t “rub it in” to a fan of another team after the Dodgers beat that team.

And I’d never needle a fan of another team by saying “Go Dodgers” when our teams are playing.

And I give the opponent all the respect in the world when I’m talking to a fan of that team. I never predict a Dodgers victory — ever — and certainly not in front of a fan of the team we’re playing. What good would that do, other than tempting fate and offending the baseball gods?

My prediction: Cubs in 5 games

The Cubs are the defending champs and have that mojo. I won’t believe they’re beatable till I see it. 

I would greatly appreciate a World Series berth, but I’m gonna be OK if it doesn’t happen. I won’t let it define how I feel about my beloved Dodgers franchise.  

I’m eternally thankful for this tremendous five-year run of sustained excellence. 

Actually, I’ll take that one step further — I’m thankful for the Dodgers’ prodigious amount of success of the last 70 years. One of baseball’s elite organizations ever since Jackie Robinson’s rookie year of 1947.
