In light of what the Houston Astros have done, some Dodgers’ fans or people who picked the Dodgers to win the World Series are not quite ready to give the Astros credit. It’s at times, we can only attempt to get them to see the truth.  Here are five things Dodgers fans need to get a grip on.

In sports, especially Houston Astros fans, there are those who are gracious after a loss. These are the fans we like when we win. We like it when fans say what a great team we have when we beat them. Then are fans who are sore and will find excuses to defend their team.

This may be something that the Dodgers and their fans won’t want to read. But if you do access this website, I hope you take it into consideration.

So Josh Reddick posted a picture on his Instagram account.

On the most recent upload, it shows him with his new Lamborghini that he and other teammates won. Now while we should be marveled at the car, there are those that are too upset by the shirt Reddick is wearing.

Dodger fans aren’t too happy with this because they feel that their former player is acting like he was part of the Houston Astros team even though he didn’t do anything in the postseason. Ok! So that is a valid point. But do you think Josh cares? I think he would rather win a World Series batting .190 then lose a World Series batting .295.

It sounds ridiculous to say, but despite having a bad series, Reddick has helped contribute to a clubhouse that won the World Series.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving Astro Fans

I hope you guys are full and relaxed from Thanksgiving break because I got something to say. It’s been twenty-five days since the greatest day in franchise history. For the most part, we’ve had respect from baseball, sports, and non-sports fans around the league. We were the sentimental favorites to win it all and we fulfilled that.

However, not everyone has fully come to grips with the reality. There are still some Dodger fans who feel that the Dodgers lost the series or that the series was rigged for the Houston Astros to win.

I could sit here right now and go on a rant about the lack of rational thinking on their behalf or that they’re still salty from the loss. But, I did some thinking and I don’t think it’s fair to go that route. As much as I hate to say this, I think we have to help the Dodgers’ crew.

Come Again?

Trust me with what I’m about to do.

Remember when ESPN Classic had a show called Top 5 Reasons You Can’t Blame? Basically, they take the most infamous moments such as Bill Buckner’s error, Chris Webber’s timeout, Ernest Byner’s fumble, Babe Ruth being traded, and the Houston Cougars losing to NC State, unfortunately. Then they come up with reasons why all the blame shouldn’t be on the victims of these episodes. You got five other reasons, which defend the victim and put the spotlight on the other suspects.

These reasons could give you a reason to change your mind about what you thought. However, they mostly give you a different perspective than the obvious one before your eyes.

With that said, I’ve decided to come up with a new episode titled “Top 5 Reasons You Can’t Blame the Los Angeles Dodgers for losing the World Series.”
