First pitch of game one of the NLDS between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers is almost here! Here is what you need to know before the game begins
For the first time since 2011, your Arizona Diamondbacks are in the division series.
The last occasion came against the Milwaukee Brewers and it did not end well. But, I have a better feeling about this time around.
Nobody knows how this game will turnout. Division rivals are squaring off. But after a tense wild card game against the Colorado Rockies, at least we know there will be more then one game to settle in.
Before you arrive in your seat at the ballpark or on your comfy couch, throw everything you know about baseball out the window. Breath and take a step back. Remember the joy that this team brought us.
Try to contain your emotions, I dare you. Anxiety, confidence and excitement. We are all feeling it.
If you missed out on any of our coverage from earlier today, go ahead and dive in to all the analysis and predictions from myself and Trisha Garcia.
Also, it was great to partner with LA Sports Hub for a podcast and Q&A.

Chris Iannetta has a .424 career OBP against Kershaw and usually hits second against lefties, yet he is not in the lineup. Puzzling decision by Lovullo. Iannetta also caught Walker for most of the season.
