Now that the 2017 regular season is complete, we continue our annual tradition of looking at the Dodgers’ season in thirds, a look at the production in three increments of 54 games each.

First, on the team level, here is how the team performed this season:

Dodgers 2017 season in thirds

2017 W-L Runs for Runs allowed BA/OBP/SLG ERA
2017 W-L Runs for Runs allowed BA/OBP/SLG ERA
First 54 games 33-21 271 (5.02/gm) 185 (3.43/gm) .258/.340/.425 3.20
Second 54 games 43-11 277 (5.13/gm) 176 (3.26/gm) .260/.347/.476 3.02
Third 54 games 28-26 222 (4.11/gm) 219 (4.06/gm) .229/.317/.405 3.93

In case you missed the earlier increments, here was the first 54 games, then the second 54 games. Man, 43-11 still looks ridiculous.

Here are the individual players, roughly organized by position groups. Among other things, marvel at the consistency of Kenley Jansen.
