The Rangers have had issues stringing wins together this season, so it takes more than one blowout win to get me on board. The Dodgers are still money making machines at home and Walker Buehler has been terrific this season. Hard not to like the Dodgers here, and I’ll take the RL as well to shave down the expensive ML price.
