Dodgers: Max Muncy Goes Off on the White Sox Manager
Dodgers fans got to witness one of the most questionable managerial decisions of the year on Thursday afternoon, and it went in their favor. That had to feel good to be on the positive side of things. It came in the top of the 6th innings with Los Angeles already up a pair of runs.
With Trea Turner at the plate and a runner on second, the White Sox opted to walk him. But they didn’t decide that until it was a 1-2 count, which is extremely odd, but even more so with 2 outs. But it really worked out for the Dodgers.
Max Muncy came up next and crushed a 2-2 pitch over the wall in left for a 3-run shot. That proved to be the runs the Dodgers needed to win the game and take the series. After the homer, Muncy appeared to have some words for the decision made by manager Tony La Russa, but we’ll let you decide.

The Dodgers ran into a bit of an embarrassing moment this weekend against the Mets. It looked for a moment like they didn’t entirely know the rules after trying to have a position player pitch in a game where they were down 5 runs. It was very…weird.
Who doesn’t love a good lockerroom tradition following a win? Dodges fans were treated to a new fun one this week when it was reported that they had Club Dub following victories. And of course, it was founded by Justin Turner.

Muncy demonstrated, with his bat, that success is the best revenge. Find the home run ball, write the score on it and present it to La Russa, who, apparently, was drinking, again, when he made the intentional walk decision!
