We discuss Max Scherzer’s dominance with the Dodgers and why he’s now firmly in the mix with his fourth career Cy Young Award. Next, we discuss how Andrew Friedman’s blockbusters deal at the deadline saved the Dodgers World Series hopes. Plus, who should take home the Cy Young between Scherzer and Buehler, and who will be the team’s ace in the postseason.
More than 5,000 Dodger fans spoke their mind in a poll we posted on Twitter. And, somewhat surprisingly, Max Scherzer took a commanding lead over the usual de facto ace for back-against-the-wall games, Walker Buehler.
