The Los Angeles Dodgers are the 2008 National League West Division Champions.
Over and over this team has made me eat my words more often than a Steinbrenner. When Joe Torre was hired, I said he wouldn’t make a lick of difference going so far as superimposing his face over a Kool-Aid packet. The day before the season started I said the Dodgers would finish third in the division. And many times during the season I have written that the Dodgers are an awful team that have bigger problems than trying to figure out how to make the playoffs.
I was flat out wrong. Some of you commenters have ridden my ass all season long about my assessment of this Dodger team. Contrary to popular belief, I do not revel in the Dodger’s miseries. I would much rather look like a complete asshole and have the Dodgers win the World Series than be completely deluded Vic Jacobs style and watch the Dodgers circle down the tank like last season.
