Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. Hope everyone has a great day today. I thought it would be romantic to have another round of voting. (I’ll see myself out)

The fun thing about doing these polls is seeing the difference in voting on TBLA and Twitter. Will Smith’s home run off Will Smith won the last matchup, but voting was pretty different. On TBLA he ran away with the vote, taking in 79 percent. However, he received only 60 percent of the vote on Twitter.

Still, he’s the winner. Here’s the latest look at the bracket.


Chris Taylor’s game-winning throw

Game-ending double plays aren’t too uncommon in baseball. They happen every now and then. Usually though, it’s a routine double play in the infield. Not in the outfield. Chris Taylor provided us with one of the most exciting finishes to a game in all of baseball this season. With one out in the bottom of the ninth and the Dodgers clinging to a one-run lead, Taylor caught a fly-ball and gunned it home to beat the runner and win the game for LA.

The throw was registered at 93.3 mph. Sheesh!

Kiké Hernández with the game-tying home run in game 7 of NLCS

How many times have we seen Kiké deliver for LA in the postseason? A number of times. However, arguably his biggest moment as a Dodger came in the bottom of the sixth in game 7 of the NLCS. Trailing a run, Hernández absolutely launched the game-tying homer into the bleachers. On the eighth pitch of the AB, he brought his Dodgers right back into the game. We all know how this game ended..... and it’s largely due to this at bat right here.
