The 2010s in Major League Baseball have come to an end, and here's a recap of that ten-year time frame from MLB.com.

It's just hard for me to remember back to that 2010 season, when the Dodgers' ManRam era, brief as it was, ended; Clayton was still developing into the best pitcher in baseball, and the McCourts were still in "control" (and I use that term loosely).

You know, the more I think about it, the best thing about this decade ending is that we get a fresh slate and don't have to recall the three-in-five-years Water Hoarders titles. Twisted Evil

I sure agree with that!

For me this decade was painful in a lot of ways because back when it began, 2010 was the last good season my team had. They haven't gotten anywhere close to that since. They led the division most of the season and as you know lost on the last weekend to those Battery chuckers! That 10 game losing streak toward the end had a lot to do with the fold. Now, we have a bright future but will the FO make the right moves to keep that future bright - not dealing any of the key players our system has developed. Check back in another decade I guess!

And that's why the rest of the league blames your guys for letting that team in. Evil or Very Mad That was just the beginning. A new decade will sure look a lot nicer.

We still have to see if the Dodgers can keep that magic going into 2020 because 7 straight NL west titles is fine but sure isn't enough.

I've often said that, too, Sunny! Laughing Laughing
