Yeah, Colorado and Arizona thought
they’d be contenders in the NL West--until they played us right before the All Star break. Prior to that, it was pretty much us in 3rd place--behind those two battling over 1st place.
Things changing dramatically with us sweeping them in the final series of games before the break--they’re now more than 10 games behind us. The 2 sweeps--part of our league leading 13 sweeps so far this season.
Regarding that other
team in the West, just across the bay from where I live--the team many thought would be the “best in the West”--well they picked up where they left off at the end of last season. They’re still on that record-breaking run going the wrong direction that they started right after last season’s All Star break, and they’re currently more than 30 games behind us.
As for the rest of the league--last season’s contenders and champs, and even this season’s Astros. Baseball’s best for practically the whole first half, until they too were passed by us--the only team with 60 wins going into the break--and now the only team currently in the 70’s with wins.
Fortunately, we didn’t do what the Giants did last season, and the gap between us and everybody else just keeps getting wider with this record-breaking season we’re having and the record-setting pace we’re on.Go Dodgers!
