Mookie Betts & Freddie Freeman Choke In Epic Fashion As The Pair Cost The Dodgers Their Season

Despite winning 100-games and being one of the favorites to win the World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers were embarrassingly swept out of the playoffs in lifeless fashion.

The Arizona Diamondbacks dominated the three-game series in every single way imaginable. 

The theme is a reoccurring one for the Dodgers who routinely have spectacular regular season success, only to fail miserably in the postseason. 

Most frustrating is the fact that the three faces of the franchise – Clayton Kershaw, Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman – were all absolute no-shows and were undoubtedly the biggest reasons why the team are cleaning out their lockers today.

Kershaw’s horrific outing in game one not only put the Dodgers in a hole, but it gave the hungry D-backs an extra shot in the arm and convinced them that they were the better team and could easily win the series.

The Dodgers offense, which had been their strength all season, went inexplicably cold during all three games.

Shockingly, nobody was worse than Betts and Freeman.

The pair combining for an astonishingly poor 1-21 at the plate.

In last night’s crucial 8th inning, when the Dodgers needed them most, both struck out.

Freeman expressed his frustration in the aftermath of the series loss, stating: “It’s hard to put into words. It’s just frustrating, and many of us didn’t play the way we wanted to.”

Freeman’s disappointment was evident as he struggled to provide the offensive spark he had consistently delivered during the regular season.

He acknowledged his shortcomings, saying: “I had pitches to hit all night and rolled them over, just like I’ve been doing for five weeks.”

Mookie Betts, too, took responsibility for his lackluster performance in the series, admitting: “I can’t speak for all of us, but I did absolutely nothing to help us win.”

Don’t let J.D. Martinez off the hook either. He was just as bad as Betts and Freeman.
