The Los Angeles Dodgers are leading the NL West and will just keep getting better. Ben Verlander talks about the Dodgers’ recent winning streak and why they’re one of the best teams in the MLB.
“It was the offense that made it so widespread and started to become more serious,” Verlander said. “They’re currently the first and only team to have more than six wins or more. Last time, they had seven, and Mookie betting who is carrying them right now. “
Betts had a slow start to the season but made a comeback and led to the Dodgers’ accusations uncomfortably.
“He’s one of the reasons I’ve said ‘they haven’t scratched the surface in the past,'” Verlander said.
Over the past week, Betts is hitting .393 with three home runs and eight RBIs. Statistically speaking, Betts is playing like a top player in baseball, something many expected at the start of the season.
In their seven-game winning streak, the Dodgers swept all four games with Arizona Diamondbacks and won 3/4 first Philadelphia Phillies.
During that same time period, the Dodgers scored 6.43 runs per game, a first in Major League Baseball, and their overbase percentage of 0.368, also the best percentage in baseball.
“Mookie Betts is tearing back into his MVP-like days, and it’s been a dominating past week for the Los Angeles Dodgers,” Verlander said. “They did [Dodgers] was the best team on paper, and they went through the regular season, and then it didn’t lead to success in the knockout stages. “
Yes, the Dodgers won the NL championship, but as Verlander points out, at this point it’s either championship or bust.
“They should win a championship… and they need to get to the World Series,” Verlander said. “Anything other than a failure, in my opinion.”
The Dodgers have been on this boat before. They were the best baseball team. Experts predict they will win them all in recent seasons.
They’ve got smart talent and they could have more this season.
Will this be the year they regroup and march to the World Series, or will there be another disappointing early game?
