Bochy is all about the matchups and it works for him.
And, unfortunately for the Dodgers, the Giants are playing good ball again. It could also be that the Cubs are heavily overrated. The Gints aren't exactly tearing the cover off of the ball and but the Cubs seem to have issues with teams who have more than one ML pitcher.
LOL...Cubs are good
Horrible decision for Yas there. Runner on 3B too.
It is not hard to have a good record with interdivision games against Milwaukee and Cincinnati. Add in their ownage on Pittsbugh and I think that is where they got half of their victories. I will give you Bryant and Rizzo, they are great hitters, but guys like Russell, Contreras and the rest are falling ass backward into good hitting situations. I know that the clowns on ESPN love to crow about Russell's high RBI total, but he should have plenty more batting behind Bryant and Rizzo. I know there is a cult of personality surrounding Joe Maddon, but the Maddon I see is the guy who ruined most of the Tampa arms by overworking them and seemed to be always behind in the playoffs. Not saying I wouldn't want him running the Dodgers, but I am not going to fawn over him either.
