You know I haven't really scouted what was available, but it shocks me that we weren't able to find a starting pitcher who would have been an upgrade from Wolf on down for the playoffs.
This basically means we count on Bills and Kershaw to out pitch the other team's aces and for the offense to knock in enough runs for Kuroda and Wolf to pick up the win.
As we can see from the St. Louis series, you can see that luck is a big factor ( we out-hit the Cardinals
but nearly lost every game).
While I still have to say I like our odds vs. any other team, the World Series lock is now gone and the Dodgers will absolutely have to play their best ball to get there.
