Dodgers aren’t showing any shortcomings even without Corey Seager | LA Times

Corey who?

On the morning of the opener of the National League Championship Series, the Dodgers announced that All-Star shortstop Corey Seager would not play because of injury. Cubs pitcher Jon Lester likened the impact on the Dodgers to how the Cubs might have been hurt had they lost Kris Bryant, the defending NL most valuable player. ESPN analyst Dan Szymborski calculated that the injury had reduced the Dodgers’ chance to win the series from 57.0% to 49.9% — in other words, “Dodgers favored” to “toss up.”

IN YOU FACE, SZYMBORSKI!

With bat flips and fly balls, Yasiel Puig puts on a swaggering Game 1 show | Plaschke

He ran out of the dugout during introductions with his tongue wagging playfully out of his mouth. He took off his cap to reveal lightning bolts shaved into his haircut.

Then, a couple of hours later, with a bat flip and a chest thump and roars that made Dodger Stadium literally shake, the Yasiel Puig Show officially began.

Dodgers leave Corey Seager off NLCS roster due to back injury

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced their 25-man roster for the National League Championship Series on Saturday, and in a stunning development, star shortstop Corey Seager is not on it.

Seager was held out of the team’s workouts the past two days at Dodger Stadium because of an ailing back, an injury manager Dave Roberts said Seager suffered while sliding into third base during Game 3 of Los Angeles’ sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Division Series.

LAT: Reconstructing the Dodgers’ 2016 Game 5 NLDS Win Over Washington

An essay by Andy McCullough that many say is very good.

As Kershaw loosened up in the bullpen, a phone rang inside Friedman’s suite. It was a member of the training staff. “Kersh is going to see if he can get loose,” the trainer said. “And there was nothing we could do to stop him.”
