    I just look at things differently I guess as a Dodger fan. When it comes to baseball I just donít measure success by only championships. Itís very hard to win in baseball. Itís a long season and lots of things can happen, so many variables. You need a bit of luck as much as talent to win a championship. But to be competitive and on top of your division every year and be in the playoff picture I think is a gigantic measure of success. And the fact that the Dodgers have done that for the last eight years, and probably nine, is impressive to me as a fan. I donít expect a Yankee fan to understand that honestly.

    You look at the Yankees like I look at the Lakers as a fan. They should win every year and when they donít itís a failure.

    I was disappointed by the losses in the World Series but I wasnít crushed by them. I was happy the Dodgers were finally good enough to keep getting back there. To keep a talented team together year after year is something to be proud of as a franchise.

    It was pretty memorable to me when the Orioles beat Koufax, Drysdale and the 1966 Dodgers 4 straight. I was in the 4th grade. They canceled class and we watched the games on tv in the gym. The whole town was dancing in the streets after game 4.

    I'm glad I was only 2 years old at the time and missed it.

    One of the benefits I guess of being a DC sports fan.

    Any postseason win is met with jubilation.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Matt Carpenter got a hit!

    Well, it was a bunt single to the left side because the defense was just giving it to him and he's refused to take it for the last two years, but it's still a hit baby!

    For real, I don't understand why players aren't doing this every time there's a shift. If they are going to give you a free base hit, take it!
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Never understood why batters don't go for it every time against the shift. That should be something worked on, especially for the hitters who KNOW they're going to face a defensive shift.

    Anyway, congrats on Matt's hit.

    Ted Williams later in life said he regretted not hitting the opposite field when they put the Williams Shift on him.

    Said he was just being stubborn.

    You do it enough times, guess what? They stop using the shift on you. Imagine that.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Imagine if you where the worlds greatest bunter. Had supernatural perfect control of where to place the ball etc. You could hit 400. Then when they bring the infield in hit just off the grass. And if they bring the outfield in hit a hi fly for a triple.

    Guys say itís far more difficult to change your batting style than to just continue to hit like you normally would. Youíre not going to see you guys change their games like that. I wouldnít do it myself either frankly. Start messing with your head and stuff like that trying to do something very different like that.

    All of us armchair quarterbacks make it seem like itís something easy to do when it really isnít. Itís not like these guys donít notice what part of the field is open. Making that kind of adjustment when the ball is coming at you 100 miles an hour is not easy, and many players who are good hitters have said exactly that.
