What the Dodgers Need to Do to Take the Next Step in the NLCS

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterNovember 9, 2016

Juan Uribe missed two bunts on Monday night before sending a two-run home run into the Los Angeles sky.

Much like that one tiny and wonderful Dodgers moment, the rest of the playoffs for the Blue Crew are shrouded in a little bad and a whole lot of good.  

Join MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar as he offers an initial assessment of what the Dodgers must do to get to the all-important World Series.

The journey will be an arduous one. As the Braves proved, there is no such thing as an easy inning in the MLB playoffs.

Whether it be the Cardinals or Pirates, Los Angeles will have to rely heavily on the front end of their starting rotation, their prolific offense and a couple of their lights-out bullpen arms.

We still have a few days before the Championship Series kicks off, so let your thoughts and suggestions be known in the comments section below.
