After the game he had, almost feel bad he made the final out.

I wonder if Charlie Culberson is going to get a ball planted in his ribs the next time he's up. Boy did he look dumb running around the bases last night

Isn't that just baseball these days? Everyone jacks homers and celebrates like clowns?

HR celebration was quite ridiculous by MLB standards but doesn't even come near the obnoxious NFL celebrations these days.

They play next August in the regular season. If they retaliate at all, it'll be then, not the WS.

Say what you will about the guy, but he is built for playoff baseball.

He's actually had a solid career so far. He's only 26 and he had a 118 OPS+ with 28 HR and 15 SB this season with solid defense (and a great arm).

Was he immature? Probably. But I'm not going to judge a guy that's probably been through some really tough stuff to get here and is having the time of his life playing, all while putting up pretty good numbers for his age. His worst offensive season so far was last year with a 98 OPS+.

I've always thought the complaints about his performance and on-field antics were overblown, but beyond that it does sound like he's kind of a problem in the clubhouse. That's the issue that's always bothered me more.

Not sure how close he is with the Dodger organization these days although I'm sure he's still gonna have a soft spot for them as long as Tommy's alive.
