Another MLB season came to an end this week, with the Dodgers facing off against the Padres and then the Giants over the weekend.

In their final regular season game, the Dodgers routed the Giants with a whopping 9 to 0 win, finishing the season with a 106-56 record. With their 106 win, the Dodgers have broken their franchise record for number of games won, with the previous record being held by the 1953 “Boys of Summer” Brooklyn Dodgers that included Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider and other Hall of Famers. 

Following the wildcard game this Tuesday between the Milwaukee Brewers and Washington Nationals, the Dodgers will face the winner of that game this Thursday in the first game of the National League Division Series.

Today on AirTalk, Nick Roman and A Martinez join Larry in studio to share their reactions to the Dodgers’ record breaking season, and their predictions for the upcoming postseason.
