Yasiel Puig was bursting with confidence Wednesday night, and for good reason.
Beaming in the aftermath of the Dodgers' 10th walk-off win of the year, Puig guaranteed a World Series appearance while addressing a jubilant crowd at Dodger Stadium.
"I see you in the World Series guys," he said, according to the Los Angeles Times' Bill Plaschke.
In years past, Puig's statement would have sounded a tad audacious.
Now it's wholly reasonable.
That massive disparity has been buoyed by dominance in Hollywood, with L.A. racking up 30 wins in its last 34 appearances at Chavez Ravine.
According to OddsShark, the Dodgers—who have been defeated in the NLCS four times since 2008—are currently favored to win the World Series at +250 (bet $100 to win $250).
Should the Dodgers exorcise those recent demons and make good on Puig's promise of a pennant, they'll be in the driver's seat to capture their first championship since 1988.
