A rivalry was renewed this past weekend, or was it?

The Dodgers hold the top record in the majors at 31-15. Who would have imagined this?

I sure did, especially because of the not-so tough NL West division they are in. However, every game is still a game, and it is played until the eventual winner wins.

The Dodgers has the best record because of a lot of reasons. These reasons include great management from top to bottom, including manager Joe Torre, superb veteran leadership, young, hungry players and fantastic overall talent as a team.

Blue lost two-of-three games to the Angels (23-21), but it was still a great series. All three affairs had enormous crowds of 50,000-plus. The action was there. The suspense was there.
