Is Yu Darvish The Answer To Dodgers’ October Blues?

July 31, 2017

The Dodgers pulled the biggest coup d’etat in today’s MLB trading deadline by landing Yu Darvish for 3 prospects with Willie Calhoun being the biggest piece being sent to the Rangers.

This trade almost never happen but somehow it came together in the final minutes before the deadline.

The addition of Darvish only strengthens the Dodgers rotation who have been doing an amazing job this year. That along with the Dodgers’ bullpen who have stepped up big time and just added two great lefty relievers from the Pirates and Reds.

The Dodgers achilles heel in October has been pitching and this year the Dodgers became aggresive and went out to make it better.

With the Dodgers being owners of the best record in MLB, it is safe to speculate now that without the Dodgers going to the World Series, this whole year will be a huge disappointment. Dodgers haven’t gone to the World Series since 1988 and 29 years after are in a position to make it happen. Could Yu Darvish be the answer that will put the Dodgers into the World Series? Could Darvish and Kershaw team up to end the Dodgers World Series drought? Having the best record in Baseball doesn’t mean anything if you can win 11 games in October. 

We shall see how the postseason turns out but for now the Dodgers have put themselves in position to go to the World Series for the 1st time since 1988. Let’s hope they get the same results of 1988.
