    I just saw the replay on MLB.COM. **** Jace Peterson for not running inside the lane. That's what caused the collision.

    I was totally against the current playoff format back when it was installed in 2012 for this very reason. We won 106 games and now our season is on the line. Having a second wild card team is bull****.

    Yeah. That ***** needs to be fixed next season. No way should the TOP 2 teams in MLB have to face each other off in the divisional round and event worst one of them playing in a WC game where they are 1 bad start away from being eliminated.

    If they want to have 2 WC teams then make them play 2/3 games. Start it the days after the season ends. I would be saying the same thing if it was the Giants. I would love to have faced the Giants in the NLCS is the format was different. The lowest 2 seeds should play each other in the WC game. Who cares about division winners come playoff time.

    Especially given how large the gap was between us and the Cardinals. If they want to do something like this there should be some kind of minimum that the other team has to be within in order to trigger a playoff. Like maybe if the other team is within 3 games or something (but we finished so far ahead that it's absurd that it now comes down to one game). I agree with you though, no point in having a 162-game season and then having a playoff like this.

    The second wild card should have to win twice. The first wild card should just need one win.

    I also dislike it because it is also possible for a third place team to win the World Series.

    I have no problem if the 3rd or 4th best team wins the WS. If they can win the WC,DS,NLCS,WS then they deserve to win. I have a major problem with teams like the Dodgers potentially losing the WC and be eliminated when odds are they would advance further than the other team if it was more than 1 game match. 1 bad start from Max and we are done for the year. That doesn't make sense considering we have like 15+ games over the other WC team.

    Yeah, that would at least make it more reasonable. I hope they rethink this going forward, it's a really bad system. The dodgers and giants shouldn't have to play each other in the first round either. They should make the matchups based on record. If we win our playoff game, we're going to be in for an epic series and that shouldn't occur in the first round or as a 5-game series.

    What I was saying is that if both wild card teams are from the same division, then one of them would be in third place in their own division and theoretically has a shot of winning the World Series. This has happened a few times already.

    I was such a huge Piazza fanboy - as I’m sure most of us were - but man, I couldn’t be more disappointed in that guy as a human being these days.

    He's a Trumptard. Piazza is greedy (we all saw it in 1998), so I bet he supports Republicans because they support cutting taxes for the wealthy.

    ^ This dude was stumping for Larry Elder! Lol.

    This ***-hat, who currently lives in Italy and hasn’t been to CA for anything other than playing baseball since he left LA (followed by SD and OAK), essentially said if we elect Larry Elder, he’d be willing to squash his beef with the team and make his grand return to Dodger Stadium as if he’s Dodger-Jesus or some ****.

    I gave him the benefit of doubt when he was upset with Vin, not because I agreed with him, but because it sounded like a misunderstanding. But who in their right mind could dislike Vin Scully and be hip to hip with the likes of Trump and Larry Elder? Who in their right mind would think that after spurning our team, then picking the Mets for his HOF hat, and essentially abandoning all association with the Dodgers, that the fan base in a vastly blue city and state would say “oh yes, please grace us with your appearance at Dodger Stadium oh great Dodger-Jesus, and take us to that sacred Blue Heaven!”

    Obviously he misread the room

    Mike Piazza. Tommy’s God son. Also Lasorda is turning in his grave at the douche that is the person now. Great player and even a greater disappointment as a human being.

    My brother in law used to be assistant sports editor for the San Diego Tribune and he worked with Vin often and told me that he was the nicest human being he had ever met. Lol my wife and I met him once and he and my wife talked about Catholic school for 10 minutes.

    Yeah, Piazza was my favorite player from like 93-98. Such a shame how the whole situation played out and certainly not a fan of his political views
