The Dodgers could have imagined a lot of scenarios for their Game 6 Friday night and never come up with the one that actually unfolded.

I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...

Brian Wilson is coming, Brian Wilson is coming!
When exactly, the Dodgers weren’t ready to say. Don Mattingly tap-danced like Gregory Hines when asked what was next for the reliever.
