Remember the good old days when the Rams, Lakers, and Dodgers were always in the hunt for crowns and titles? I do. Boy, do I. What fun days they were! Hard times have fallen on LA native fans like myself who have been privileged to behold the Showtime of the Lakers, the prowess of the GSOT, and many Dodger achievements.
Lately, not so much. In fact, take away the GSOT years in STL, and LA Rams haven't had much to cheer about locally for eons, Jim Buss destroyed the Lakers. Shaw, GF, and recently Fisher destroyed the Rams in LA fun.
Upper management and ownership matter. Thanks God we at least have an owner and HC who seems hell-bent on winning. Dodgers really scored when they replaced Mattingly with Roberts and hopefully the same will be said about the Rams McVay-Fisher move.
Cody Bellinger has been a spark plug for the Dodgers. He started slamming homers and eventually the other players joined the party. Teams need a spark plug---a guy whose exceptional play brings out the best in others by motivating them to get in on the fun and glory. Rams need a spark plug on offense. A guy whose sudden excellence stimulates a chain reaction on the team that transforms them from "meh" status to something that sends shivers down fans' backs every time they suit up and show up. Rams need a Cody Bellinger.
WE have our Dave Roberts in McVay.
Who will be our Cody Bellinger?
Goff is a nominee.
Gurley is a nominee.
My bet though is on.........................who ya got? Who could out of the Dodger blue can ignite this sad sack offense?
My longshot pics are WRS Thomas and Kupp.
