Dodgers’ impressive run needs that final exclamation point

The Dodgers came within a victory of a winning the World Series last season.

That wasn’t much of a consolation, was it?

The Buffalo Bills once came within a Scott Norwood field goal of claiming a Super Bowl and that didn’t earn them a piece of the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Championships are all or nothing and the Bills still have an empty trophy cabinet. The four consecutive Super Bowl appearances they made are remembered less as an achievement and more as a failure for their inability to win one.

Question, for those of you who know LA sports media better than I do: was Jim Murray the last competent sportswriter in the whole city, or is that just how it feels to us outsiders?
