MILWAUKEE – The 2018 Los Angeles Dodgers have spent nearly seven months tormenting themselves and their fans, operating as if a pennant were their birthright. They tantalized with their talent and tortured with their results. They lost games when they shouldn't have, but won every game that needed to be won. They required 163 games to win the division. If Major League Baseball would have allowed it, the Dodgers would have taken the National League Championship Series to Game 8.
