Eyes on the prize – that’s the 1988 World Series Trophy – picture taken by catlovesthedodgers.mlblogs.com. The Dodgers now need to win just eleven more games to get their next World Series Championship Trophy. It’s been 28 long years since the last one.
We know the competition. First, we need three victories against the Washington Nationals. Second, we take four wins from either the Chicago Cubs or the San Francisco Giants. Then finally, we need four victories on the largest stage of all, against the survivor of the American League – the Boston Red Sox, the Cleveland Indians, the Texas Rangers, or the Toronto Blue Jays.
The team is already in Washington D.C. The starting rotation is set. The 25-man roster is tentatively set, and could change tomorrow. What’s left is the execution of the plan. Win, win, win. Go Dodgers!
