    I agree… it’s gonna be tough but in the end we’ll take it.
    Same scenario as last year, it’ll be close for 3 quarters then boom… big brother takes over.

    Arroyo will most likely win, but I believe that the Knights are going to have a tough time against South El Monte.

    Sooooo pumped! Ain’t this what it’s all about? This is we play,coach, attend high school football games for games like this Arroyo V South El Monte.
    There’s a lot in the line hereof course you got the league title this game probably decides the MVP Knights win Camacho or Ocariz is your MVP Eagles win Tovar is the MVP. Also, seeding for the playoffs, Knights win they maintain their current ranking but if the Eagles win they probably shoot to the 1 seed in division 12. Dare to be great boys!!!

    Re Dodgers v Co or AZ
    Dodgers have a losing record against AZ 8-11
    Dodgers have a losing record against CO 9-10

    Add to that the inconsistency of Yu Darvish of late.
    Add to that the post season mediocrity of Clayton Kershaw and you have a recipe for disaster for Dodger fans that believe it is their manifest destiny to win the world series this year. And an opportunity for a long shot bet on CO or AZ at some book in Vegas.

    His career postseason earned run average now sits as 4.55, a far cry from his dominant career numbers. He has allowed a .229 batting average in October, which is up 25 points from his regular season average. That number doesn’t seem like it should create a difference of 2.21 earned runs per nine innings, but it has.
