Will The Dodgers’ October Be Magical Or Mortifying?

Dodgers_Yasiel_Puig_2013ATLANTA — The Dodgers will begin the 2013 playoffs against the Atlanta Braves here Thursday, but their most difficult postseason opponent has already shown up.

It came swaggering into their clubhouse bearing sordid histories and fresh doubts. It came in with a bold and powerful relentlessness that gave even baseball’s most cocksure and carefree team pause.

Its name is October.

The Dodgers have shown they can reasonably handle any nine players put in front of them, but can they handle October?
