The World Series goes exclusively to all of Central America through ESPN signals

Los angeles dodgers they have again been eliminated in the postseason. After winning their first championship in 32 years during the 2020 campaign, the team was one of the big favorites to win the trophy of the World Series, especially after winning 106 games in the regular stage, second best record of MLB in 2021.

Taking into account their championship last year and the years 2017 and 2018, where the Dodgers came to the World Series, the team has reached the playoffs in nine consecutive seasons, being obviously eliminated before the “Fall Classic”Six times. In the stretch, they have won their divisional pennant eight times, demonstrating the kind of dominance they have imposed on the NL west division.

In the middle of the historic moment, is the leader Dave Roberts, who despite criticism (deserved or not), has led the Dodgers to the postseason in each of his years against the team. However, despite the regular season success of the manager and the team, it has not been transformed into championships, ironically resembling the 1990s for the team that just eliminated them, Atlanta Braves.

The 90s for Braves of the leader Bobby cox It was a total domain of the National League. The manager returned to the team after managing them during the late 1970s and early 1980s and after a five-year absence from a leadership position.

Cox entered in 1990 to replace the leader Russ nixon and under his command, they concluded with a record of 40 wins and 57 losses that year. From there they won their division in three consecutive years, before the 1994 strike. Then they won it consecutively from 1995 to 2006, obtaining the pennant of the National League on five occasions in that section.

All those good results concluded with a single championship of World Series, which arrived in 1995, despite how dominant the team was during that period, very similar to the experience that the Dodgers in the last decade, especially during the leadership of Roberts.

Like those Braves, the Dodgers have all the material and the veteran to continue traveling to the postseason and even win the World Series, but so far, in 2021, they are the living reflection of that talented team led by the legendary Bobby cox.

Remember that you will be able to see all the games of the World Series in Central America exclusively on ESPN.
