Dusty Baker: "I'd be interested to see -- they won the war -- but the effects of Jansen and Kershaw when they get to Chicago."— J.P. Hoornstra (@jphoornstra) October 14, 2016
I asked Baker if the Dodgers' use of Jansen tonight could turn into a trend: "It's not a trend that I'd like to be a part of anytime."— J.P. Hoornstra (@jphoornstra) October 14, 2016

21:40: L.A.'s Leftorium.
The biggest difference between the teams comes against left-handed pitching. The Dodgers ranked last in baseball with a woeful .214 batting average and a .623 OPS against lefties while the Cubs' .807 OPS ranked second. That discrepancy might mean adding a bullpen arm from the left side for the Cubs as Joe Maddon indicated rookie Rob Zastryzny could be in play as he impressed in his one month in the big leagues compiling a 1.12 ERA in 16 big league innings. He would join Travis Wood, Mike Montgomery and Aroldis Chapman as lefties in the bullpen if the Cubs so desire. Jon Lester is the lone lefty starter and will take the ball in Game 1.
