Los Angeles is so talented, so ridiculously talented, and yet three months ago the Dodgers were 12 games under .500 and buried in last place in the National League West. Their manager, Don Mattingly, seemed on the brink of being fired. Nobody could stay healthy, everybody except Clayton Kershaw was underachieving, and nothing at all added up.
On Thursday, the Dodgers overcame a 6-3 deficit in the final four innings and became the first team in baseball to clinch a division title.
