For the Los Angeles Dodgers, the postseason is a lot like a video game and their only goal is to win the whole dang thing. Three levels stand between L.A. and the ultimate prize. And the first one, well, it’s not what they’d have chosen.
The Dodgers’ quest starts here with the Arizona Diamondbacks. And nobody in baseball beat the Dodgers more times this season than the Arizona Diamondbacks.
These two NL West foes find themselves in the National League Division Series after very different paths. The Dodgers had the best record in baseball and will have home-field advantage as long as they’re playing. The D-backs won a crazy wild-card game Wednesday night and will have an uphill climb as long as they’re playing.
