Reflecting on this season and playoff run, I'd like to give kudos to the team for their achievements.
They need more depth in the pen, specifically a reliable long man to bridge from the starters to the high leverage relievers; they need a more disciplined offensive approach. It was beyond frustrating to see them let opposing pitchers off the hook by swinging at junk and getting themselves out and they need to identify a reliable 4th starter so we can avoid so many of these "bullpen" games that tax our already overtaxed pen.
The defense improved, the offense carried us for stretches, Wheeler & Nola were excellent overall, Bohm, Stott and Marsh are starting to figure it out, Suarez was a revelation, Alvarado, Dominguez and Eflin helped stabilize the pen a lot, the team bonded with each other and the city and they restored the faith of the fanbase.
Hopefully, we can get back to this level; history says it likely will not happen which is why opportunities like this need to be cherished, but this team has many elements in place and should continue to do well. If we can shift Stott to 2B and land one of the good SS, all the better. Get Harper back in RF and let's roll.
