Yet another matchup that likely won’t be too close

Happy Saturday, everyone. Hope you all had a great Christmas. With the holiday behind us, time for another matchup in our bracket!

The last battle, to no surprise, wasn’t close. Justin Turner and his incredible double play ran away with the voting, receiving 96 percent of the vote on TBLA. Though still a runaway, it was a little less lopsided over on Twitter, where it got only 87 percent of the vote.

Here’s an updated look at the bracket.


Cody Bellinger robs Fernando Tatis Jr.

Yeah, this one won’t be close. One of the best plays of the Dodgers’ October run, and one of the best plays in Dodgers postseason history. In Game 2 of the NLDS, the Dodgers were hanging on to a one-run lead in the seventh inning. With two outs, Tatis Jr. crushed what looked to be a go-ahead two-run home run. Bellinger had other ideas.

He leaped and robbed what would have been a home run, saving the game for the Dodgers, and possibly the series. Had this been a homer, who knows how the game could have turned out. San Diego could have won, and the series would have been tied at one. Not only was this a game-saving catch by Bellinger, it was a series-saving catch.

Dodgers come-from-behind victory in Arizona

Remember this wild game back in September? Lost in all the postseason magic, there were a number of times in which the Dodgers displayed some regular season magic. Back on September 8, the Dodgers rallied from behind with a four-run 7th inning and a four-run 10th inning to come from behind and beat the D-Backs.

I’d give a full play-by-play here on how the comeback went down, but figured re-living it through highlights is a lot more fun!
