The expectations weren’t much, just something shy of the greatest team ever. When you start the season with a record payroll, followers aren’t anticipating just pretty good. Yet that’s what the Dodgers had been for much of the 2015 season. After a strong start, they lapsed into a prolonged period of mediocrity. A winning team that was still disappointing. But the goal was always to get into the postseason, to flex their muscle when it counted most. And now, after almost six long months, that sometimes infuriating team has done just that. Led by a masterful Clayton Kershaw one-hitter and three solo home runs off Giants ace Madison Bumgarner, the Dodgers finally clinched the National League West on Tuesday with an 8-0 victory at San Francisco's AT&T Park.
Only time will tell if the Dodgers can take it all the way this season.
