    @ RAMS FAN: The Dodgers appear to have a strategy of going to a leaner, scrappier, and less star-studded roster. They are counting on players such as Gavin Lux, Max Muncy, Chris Taylor, and Trayce Thompson to all have something resembling career seasons, and at the same time.
    These particular players, as well as all the others who are now on the roster, ought to be on a mission to bring another championship to Los Angeles.
    What would probably help the Dodgers the most would be to have a healthy starting rotation for the entire postseason, and a closer who can get batters out when the pressure is at its greatest.

    First we learn that Santa Fe has landed Bateman, then comes the news that Riley is going to keep the porous defense and his buddy Grinch…isn’t life grand?
