The Dodgers are on pace for the greatest season in franchise history.
Friday, the Dodgers won their 109th game and clinched baseball's best record and home field advantage throughout the World Series. The Dodgers are looking ahead to October where they will be trying to win their second championship in 3 years.
Earlier this week, former Dodger Alex Verdugo talked about watching Betts and the Dodgers win the 2020 World Series, and he didn't hold anything back. Here is what he said in the Boston Globe:
"A 60-game season, it's still hard to judge to this day," Verdugo said. "Like yeah, it's a World Series, right? Yeah, they got a ring. But they didn't play any games at their home field. They didn't. There weren't any fans there. It was 60 games. Anyone could ball out for 60 games. That extra 102 is a big difference. They won it, it's a true one, for what we call it. But I still call it as I see it, it's still a 60-gamer."
You can make the case the path to the 2020 World Series was more difficult than the path to the World Series in a "normal" season. The Dodgers had to play an extra round in the expanded 16-team postseason, upping their odds of elimination, and every game was played at a neutral site in Texas.
