The Playoffs Are In Our Sights
“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.”
Dorthy clenches her fist while she shuts her eyes. Her heels click as her ruby shoes shine. While gnashing her teeth against each other she slowly chants those important words. There is nothing better than a trip home. For Dorthy and the Dodgers coming home is where they are at peace and everything is right in the world. It’s also a place the Dodger have been playing their best Baseball.
This season the Dodgers have the second best home record in the National League. They have won 44 games and lost only 27. That’s an astounding .620 winning percentage. Furthermore, they are batting an unbelievable .298 with a slugging percentage of .464 and OPS of .840. The Dodgers offense is potent in the friendly confines of Chavez Ravine.
The home team advantage the Dodgers have is an exciting backdrop for this last homestand. With 16 games left in the season and a tightening race developing in both the divisional and wild card races it is imperative that the Dodgers have a good showing this weekend.
