so, the dodgers' season is over - prematurely by many people's thinking, including my own. and while i don't live and die by the team, i am disappointed. blue? not really. although these cards are.
2008 topps triple threads duke snider sapphire parallel numbered to 25
i bought this card a couple of weeks ago. the same seller had a steve garvey card from the same set/same parallel run going at the same time. i got the snider for $1.99 plus shipping (i was the only bidder) while the garvey card went for over $30 (i didn't win that one). go figure.

the dodgers haven't been to the world series since don sutton was on their opening day roster. yikes.

for me, the dodgers' performance in the 2014 nlds comes down to what they did or didn't do as a team during the series. yes, the team is comprised of individuals managed by an individual and brought together by another individual. and, yes, there may be some room for improvement with any of those individuals. but whatever happens this offseason, i'll still root for the laundry next season - even if (and actually especially if) the same people are wearing it.
what concerns me more is the fact that no dodger team has won their division (or the national league pennant before division play) three years in a row. history would tell us that the best shot the dodgers have is a wild card berth which means a one game playoff which means kershaw. doesn't it?
