Everybody hates Dodgers fans. They show up late, leave early, cheer wildly when someone hits a routine fly ball, and don't know the players on the other team.

And worst of all, they like to refer to the Dodgers as "us..."

As for the Dodgers themselves, they have a great organization and an excellent team. A lot of their players came up through the ranks, and have been Dodgers their entire professional lives. The team supplemented this with quality free agents like Mookie Betts, and traded for proven guys like Max Scherzer and Trea Turner (all three of these guys were a big part of the Dodgers' win over the Cardinals last night). Just as importantly, the Dodgers got rid of shitstains like Manny Machado and Yasiel Puig, who are fine players when they aren't being clubhouse cancers. Speaking of cancers, I'll be really surprised if Trevor Bauer ever plays for the Dodgers again.

But the most important asset the Dodgers have is their manager, Dave Roberts. Despite his calm demeanor, he's a fierce competitor and he doesn't take any shit at all. When they talk about "The Dodger Way," he's the Enforcer. To my mind, he's the best manager they've had since Walter Alston (Tommy Lasagna was more of a cheerleader; his coaches did most of the heavy lifting).

The Dodgers are the defending World Series Champions, and they have a good chance of repeating. Their win last year - in an empty stadium after less than half of a full season - couldn't have been very satisfying. I'm sure that on a regular basis Roberts reminds the players that they have unfinished business.

Having said all that, I hope we win the World Series (and by "we" I mean anybody but the Dodgers)... :P :P :wink:

You are a giant fan hating robot created in a secret f#+&ing government lab.

Take care, then. Bye, bye now.

Well, at least you have a sense of humor. That's a start...
