    Where did you get that from, who's suggesting they didn't lose, people are disagreeing with the idea that one person is solely responsible, could Roberts have done a better job with the Pen sure, but if the guys do they're job it doesn't matter, could the top HALF of the line up have hit better sure, could Jansen have pitched better in some of the close games, or the bull pen not imploded multiple times in the series sure, could Kershaw have pitched better in game 5 sure, could Darvish have pitched better in games 3 & 7 sure. But no one is deafening that Houston won, and good for them, they did it in spite of their bull pen being terrible.

    But if there is one theme from all that, it's the DODGERS as a team lost, not one player or one pitcher, or one guy buy himself.

    I would have preferred if he had pitched well in game 5 even if they still ended up losing. There is never going to be a point where his detractors are happy with his performance.
    Because even if he's lights out in 6 starts next post season people will point to his career post season ERA and say he still can't pitch in the post season.
    We both know it true.

    Deep down, you know it to be true.
    How could Kershaw one bad post season start stand out more than Yu Darvish's TWO bad post season starts? Basically to argue that Kershaw was singularly responsible or even the most responsible, we have to say that game 5 was worth more than TWO OTHER GAMES COMBINED, and that game 5 was more important than a deciding game 7.
    The reason game 5 stands out the most to some is because they want to push a narrative more than being honest.

    Deep down you have to know that ****ing up in 2 games is worse than ****ing up in one. (a game in which no one pitched well.)

    I hope someone has a lifeboat because I'm drowning in excuses over here.

    Its simple, Kershaw is the greatest pitcher in the history of the game, I am sure if you look at every post season loss you see lucky swings, missed locations, bullpen mistakes, and bad calls, if you eliminate those events he is also the greatest post season pitcher ever, its called pitch normalization where we return the post season to the expected norm and award him for what should have been. No one understand why a GOAT should be evaluated differently or scrutinized.

    Of course every pitcher before him failed on the merits.

    Boat provided, climb aboard, the minnow awaits.

    Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
    A tale of a fateful trip
    That started from this tropic port
    Aboard this tiny ship.

    The mate was a mighty sailing man,
    The skipper brave and sure.
    Five passengers set sail that day
    For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

    The weather started getting rough,
    The tiny ship was tossed,
    If not for the courage of the fearless crew
    The Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost.

    The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
    With Gilligan
    The Skipper too,
    A millionaire and his wife,
    A movie star
    The professor and Mary Ann,
    Here on Gilligan's Isle.

    Been a week since the last post in here, just wanted to remind everyone that the astros won. By that I mean the dodgers didn't win.

    Still way better than losing 98 games, but OK.

    By May we were out of it, the only thing left to root for was any thing not dodgers; we had a horrible season but we didn't feel the agony of defeat, we did enjoy the Astros thrill of victory.

    Be happy you made it to the WS, most of your team is coming back. You don't have a lot of off season needs.

    You felt the agony of defeat 98 times and lost the chance at the first pick on the last day of the season.

    I think you reach a point where defeat is no longer agonizing.
