BIG AL's RED-HOT MLB TRIPLE PACK (21-8 LAST 29)
Oakland Athletics (34-21) at Los Angeles Dodgers (39-17)
Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 9:40 pm
At 9:40 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Oakland Athletics. The future of the NL West may someday belong to the San Diego Padres, but for now it's the Dodgers who reign supreme. Los Angeles has clinched its eighth straight Division Crown and it will also finish with the League's best record in this shortened season. But nobody knows better than the Dodgers that those eight pennants have resulted in zero World Series rings and it's now been more than 30 years since they have won it all. If they're going to do it this year, they're going to need to stay as healthy as possible. That's been problematic for young RH ace Walker Buehler. But the good news is that it's been a blister problem that has sidelined the 26-year-old and those are normally very manageable. Buehler gets his first start since September 8 tonight and no doubt he will be carefully watched. He's been a beast in inter-league games, going 3-0 with a 2.74 ERA in eight starts covering just under 43 innings vs. teams from the American League. Take L.A. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
