2017 Topps Now - World Series Edition - #820, #821, #825, #826 & #829 - Game 2 Cards

After last nights game the Dodgers are saying all the right things. Per Ken Gurnick at
"If you thought it was going to go 4-0, you're crazy," Puig said. "These are the two best teams in American baseball. That's what you get." 
Jansen agreed. 
"No, we're not frustrated," he said. "Nobody tells us it's going to be easy. The Houston Astros, the best team in the American League, we got to flat-out earn it. We'll go to their place and battle."
Wise words from two very important Dodger cogs. Following that, here are today's crop of Dodgers' 2017 Topps Now cards highlighting the Dodgers Game 2 loss. Although we are all clearly disappointed, we must all reflect on the fact that last nights multiple comeback efforts is proof that this team does not know how to quit. We just need to persevere, and I have faith that this team can do just that.

Blog Kiosk: 100/26/2017 - Dodgers Links - Nobody Said it was Going to be Easy

Although we didn't come away with a victory last night, I am more certain than ever that THIS TEAM does not know how to give up. These guys battle -- always -- even after falling behind three times they still found the gumption to fight back. Sure, things didn't work out as planned, but that's okay. If there's one thing this game teaches it's perseverance, and THIS TEAM has got that. Per Ken Gurnick at
"I'm going to get my shot at them. When I get my shot, I'm going to help my team win," Jansen said after the Astros beat the Dodgers on Wednesday night in Game 2 of the World Series presented by YouTube TV, 7-6, in what is shaping up to be a true Fall Classic. "I'll be back for Game 3. The team will give me a shot again, my guys will pick me up again."

Smith (who owned one-quarter of the club) O'Malley navigated a deal where he bought Branch Rickey's share of the club and essentially became a trustee over the Smith family portion to take over majority control.
