    what is CIF going to do when only 12 schools get in for CIF in division 6. There are 12 schools that are getting in and then there are 5 teams on the bubble that have to win this week just to maybe get and At-Large bid ( maybe ) and then there are 5 teams that are already out for sure base on league records.

    22 teams in Division 6

    12 in
    5 a maybe ( MAYBE )
    5 out.

    What Kershaw showed Sunday was he lost his composure showed frustration. The Astros knew that had him rattled. His mechanics weren’t off it was his mind that was off. It was like watching a Little League kid who couldn’t throw a strike losing his cool his focus. He is the best but Sunday night wasn’t his night. Plus Roberts said Morrow wouldn’t be pitching in game 5. Roberts knew he needed to rest him. How could Morrow call Honeycutt to tell Roberts he could go in. I honestly think dodgers don’t throw Morrow Dodgers would of won. Jansen is great but in my opinion he strictly a one inning pitcher. The game lost on the field and on manager decision

    Friday’s game at St. Francis will be exciting, but I hope the winning team can use its momentum to go all the way and take CIF. Remember, success in the playoffs is what separates good teams from great teams.

    I am not a Dodgers fan but as a SoCal resident I do want to see them win the WS. Last night’s loss is so demoralizing, if history is any indication, the Astros will close out the series tomorrow night. Kershaw is one of the best pitchers in MLB and I wish he was on my team. But I don’t know if the Dodgers will ever win a WS with him. First, it was the Cardinals who had his number. Last night, after getting seven runs of support, he couldn’t come through again. There shouldn’t be any excuse this time because the Dodgers even gave him an extra day of rest after being down 2-1. The Dodgers have every right to put all their marbles in his basket base on his regular season performances. Hence, the problem, he has shown he’s not even Orel Hershiser come playoff time let alone HOF like Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale. You can almost see it in his eyes that he’s mentally defeated in the biggest moments. For all my Dodgers friends everywhere, this is one time I wouldn’t mind eating my words.
    From T. Peterson: I am a Dodger fan but I agree with your assessment 100 percent.

    On the eve of their exit from the Del Rio, I’d like to publicly thank the Pioneer Titans for their participation, sportsmanship, and frankly their generosity in providing so many wins to others in this league. Your friendship and those wins will be missed.
