Commentary: The excruciating conclusion of the Dodgers’ glorious season.
The Dodgers have suffered three defeats under Kershaw, the best pitcher of the season. The fact that they have won all three games is nothing short of a miracle, and they probably are as good as they were in the beginning, but now, the Dodgers are on the verge of the end.

The Dodger fans love their team and their players, but the Dodgers have experienced the worst of seasons from a team perspective in a long time, as they’ve won the pennant but lost the World Series. After a good run, the Dodgers would need to find a way to get back
