Roberts expressed confidence that Seager will be able to start at shortstop, but didn't rule out the possibility of Seager being the Dodgers' designated hitter when the club goes on the road to Houston.
"If all goes well after the first two games of the series, then we can kind of reassess at that point and time," Roberts said. "It does give us another option as far as looking at playing three games at an American League ballpark."
We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.
No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.
Of course, we needn’t look at Jansen’s greatness solely through the prism of the postseason. If you clicked through to that previous link, you’d have seen that, by WAR, Jansen has been neck and neck for best reliever in the game with Kimbrel since the two debuted back in 2010. This season, Jansen became one of just 19 relievers all time to put up 3.5 WAR in a single season.
  • Craig Minami at True Blue LA tells us about the postseason 36 years go that featured the Dodgers and Astros; "The first Dodgers-Astros postseason series was pretty great." This brought back some memories.
  • Vegas apparently loves the Dodgers. Per David Purdum at ESPN; "Dodgers drawing big bets to win Game 1."
  • Per Ken Gurnick at; "Dodgers pitch in with relief aid to Puerto Rico."
The Dodgers will make a "substantial" donation to aid Puerto Rico's relief effort from Hurricane Maria in the name of Enrique Hernandez, whose record-tying three-homer performance on Thursday helped the club clinch the National League Championship Series.
  • The LA Kings mascot, Bailey, has decided to stand in as our mascot. Via a tweet from the lion:
