Thus concludes the first full week of the offseason for your Los Angeles Dodgers. After watching the Padres get bounced in the NLCS by the fun and lively Philadelphia Phillies, folks are sure to be longing for their boys in blue.
The stage is set for a Phillies vs Houston Astros World Series starting on the 28th, so there is certain to be quite a number of Philly fans around the baseball world.

Beyond Mookie, Dave Roberts had the spotlight firmly pointed in his direction following the playoff loss.
