I've never pretended to be neutral and yes i am an excited fan. I don't disparage the Giants or their fans.

I see you've dropped the pretense of being just an excited fan who's not looking to trash talk. At least you're being honest about it now.


I'm not a Giants fan. That said, until this year, the Dodgers have been a joke with their underachieving for the last decade plus. Baseball is a bottom line game. Let's see how they do in the playoffs. Reality is that your Manager has done a great job creating a winning culture and the players on this roster have bought in.

Finally, the key will be Kershaw healthy and Darvish stepping up big. Quality arms win in the post-season, no exceptions.

I thought people from LA didn't care about the rivalry


No that's LA folks not caring about LA v. SF in general. I was shocked how many people seemed to hate LA when I went to Cal. We never thought about hating on SF growing up in LA. Now Dodgers/Giants, that's a completely different story.

My experience was that most people from LA tended to have a broadly positive view of SF and/or the Bay Area, sports teams aside.

That might be changing now, as the economic/political power in CA has shifted north in the last decades.

As a lifelong bay area resident, I feel like I can say this. Back in the day, it was pretty hard to hate on the bay area because (generally) it was a pretty awesome place to live with pretty chill people. Now with the tech boom, there's a lot more arrogant pricks roaming the streets. The City sure ain't what it used to be. So if LA people want to hate on us, that's fine, I won't stop them

Growing up in SoCal in the 1980s, Northern California was definitely an afterthought. I would visit my Aunt who lived in San Francisco and was always surprised by the animosity to Southern California. Same when I went to Cal in the 1990s.

Regarding Dodgers / Giants. Prior to this decade, everything NCSF said about the Dodgers could have been said about the Giants for the 50 years prior to this decade. These things come and go. When the Giants finally won I was just glad that Barry Bonds wasn't part of it. The Dodgers really took a step back when the O'Malley family sold them. It is exciting to see them do so well this year and with a lineup that is young and could be in place for a long time.

Someone on my social media feed mentioned that SD Mexican food was the best in California. I say no way. East LA and SF Mission District tacos are much better than the SD carne asada with fries crap. Now their fish tacos are superior, I will give them that.

SF is a more provincial place.

Yes indeed. Three hits backed by3 homerun. Winners of42 of last 49.

Oh my - Dodgers win again. 5 home runs. Bellinger #31. Chris Taylor is a gem. Puig lines one over the fence. Seager goes upper deck. Turner joins in on the fun.

Darvish may be the missing piece.

I have to say I'm impressed. I predict there's going to be yet another NL West pennant flying over Chavez Ravine next spring.

i guess that's the fear... that the 2017 Dodgers are this year's version of the 2016 Warriors

Hey, I'm a Red Sox fan. I knock the rally caps off of kids and yell, Retards!

one of the best moments of yesterday's game... Bellinger was in an 0-12 stretch, and the Dodgers tv announcer said something like, "Some guys are in a slump, and some guys are just overdue." This was seconds before he yakked a 2 run HR (his 31st) to tie the game in the 6th. awesome stuff

Amazing the amount of Dodger fans at opposing stadiums. It's rivaling what we've seen in the past for Red Sox, Yankee Cubbie and (begrudingly) Giants fans in certain seasons. The Pantone 294 fan club has certainly made it a thing to represent and be loud at road games.

I was just at the games in Atlanta and i couldn't believe how many Dodger fans there were. Far more than in years past. I'm sure some of it is bandwagoning but, like you said, Pantone 294 seems to have really cranked things up.

By the way, how great is it that Greinke is 1-5 now against the Dodgers? I love Zack and was bummed to see him go (would love to have him back some day too) and am certainly glad he landed in AZ instead of Frisco. But it's a little sweet justice to batter him around the yard a little bit as he watches his team sit far behind in the standings.

it was reported that Greinke threw Puig's luggage off the team bus... must feel good for Yasiel to get the game winning RBI against Greinke in that situation. Even better that we win that game in AZ w/ our #4 going up against their ace.

Bullpen has looked shaky this series which is a bit of a concern.

AZ is a good hitting team and the BOB or whatever they call it is a hitter's park. At least we saw why Friedman wanted Cingrani. Blew two lefties away yesterday. He is here to get 1-2 lefties out in key leverage situations.

Hopefully, Gonzo comes back healthy and productive (he went yard last night in AAA). Forsythe against righties and Joc against lefties can be rough. With Gonzo back, Bellinger can move to left and CT3 can play second against righties and CF against lefties. Much stronger lineup.

Do you see the Dodgers not picking up Forsythe's contract option next year and going with Taylor full time at 2nd base?
