Shortly after the trade deadline ended, I was busy sorting teams into arbitrary columns of winners and losers. The Dodgers, having acquired nothing but a pair of left-handed relievers, were losers. Getting Tony Watson and Tony Cingrani was the kind of tinkering that a team does when it’s overly satisfied with itself and its chances in the postseason.
Sure, the Dodgers are on pace to blow past 110 wins, and they didn’t need to make a deal to win their division, but they won’t get to take those 110 wins into the postseason with them. They needed to bully the rest of the National League in the postseason with the scariest roster they could build.
While I was busy moving them into the loser column, the Dodgers were busy trading for Yu Darvish.

Youth Ja’Wuan James Jersey According to Ireland, they decided to keep the mural at first but now the house is being renovated, his son is older, and his wife wants to remove it. Which is tricky, seeing as this year the Dodgers look to have a great chance of winning the World Series for the first time since 1988 and fan superstitions could be more important than ever before.
To find out more about where this downright majestic piece of art came from (that’s meant entirely sincerely — this mural is awesome) we reached out to Steve Sax himself and got to the bottom of things.
Sax played for the Dodgers from 1981-1988 before leaving for the Yankees in free agency following LA’s World Series win in the fall of 88. He played for the A’s and White Sox as well before retiring and is now a motivational speaker, author, and analyst for MLB Network on Sirius Radio.
