    CLEM LABINE pitched an absolutely incredible game on October 2nd, whitewashing those Giants 10-0, that they could have had a whole band of spies with cameras, it would not have changed a thing!

      The MORE REASONABLE explanation is that there WAS no spy.

        Sure, sure, and the '64 Phillies, and the '78 Bosox, BUT only the '51 Dodgers ever blew a lead THAT large AND THAT late.

          Are you aware that, prior to the playoff, the Giants were 17-4 ON THE ROAD beyond August 11?

            Sadly, YES, but, please don't remind me, musial6.

              .....and then the DODGERS came back to WIN 4 NL pennants in the next 5 years! (don't start me stamping my feet and holding my breath).
              you can take the Dodgers out of Brooklyn, but you can't take the Brooklyn out of the DODGERS

                musial 6 you're right, I should have checked, see how the mind starts to go. anyway that makes the choice to go all the way to stl. for game one after finishing the season a little questionable. though you get two at home, the first one is crucial in a short series. which makes the 51 choice really strange. I think dressens anger with labine maybe cost them the pennant. battlin bake, the dodger dynamo

                  In '46, I think a major consideration was the Dodgers' poor showing in St. Loo that season (3-8), including dropping all four games in a series in July.
