Dodgers star's replacement makes Game 1 impact

The Dodgers celebrated advancing to the NLCS but they should also celebrate their decided advantage over the Cubs. More

Overflowing? What the heck, let's party.

Prices skyrocketed for Cubs playoffs games at Wrigley Field in 2016 as they broke their long championship drought. Oh, and not hitting.

It's 1:34 a.m. on Friday the 13th, and there isn't a dry eye inside the visitor's clubhouse at Nationals Park.

Seager suffered the injury against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday and could not practice all week.

The Dodgers swept the Diamondbacks to reach the NLCS, while the Cubs beat the Nationals in five games.

"It has its pluses and negatives", Wood said of the layoff. "It's reality. So we've got to come back here and get ourselves back together". It's a confidence issue.

"Our team doesn't really approach games like that", Hendricks said.

The free-agent-to-be, along with his agent Scott Boras, both have said the 2015 Cy Young winner will test the market.

"Corey was open to everything", Roberts said.

"Yeah, it's a repeat", Arrieta said. Obviously, some guys are tired. "By the time we got back last year, we really belonged". The Chicago Cubs have now lost seven of their last 10 games overall when scoring three or less runs. That's a "heart-and-soul of the team" type guy. Now the Cubs will fly to Los Angeles, three time zones away, to start the series with the Dodgers on Saturday.

Despite the title, this is not going to be a sports column. They went down with it in the most inexplicable of ways. "But that's not the right way to feel because not one person makes or breaks a team".

We now cut to 1962, a terrific Dodger season reminiscent of this one, only I hope with a different outcome. Even with the movie industry, L.A. was considered by many to be a "rube" town, albeit with great weather and great beaches.

In the Dodgers 5-2 win in Game 1 of the NLCS, Puig peppered left center with a booming double (and he appeared to call it!) in the bottom of the fifth to breathe life into the previously-dormant Dodgers offense. Darvish is 1-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his postseason career.

The air in this place is an assault on the senses. Colorado's Nelson Arenado is another, as is Baltimore's Manny Machado. That's not glass-half-empty. It's just reality.
