Harry How/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Dodgers entered the 2018 playoffs with the highest payroll of any National League postseason qualifier.The Milwaukee Brewers entered the 2018 playoffs with the lowest payroll of any National League postseason qualifier.After the Brewers shut out the Dodgers 4-0 on Monday in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series Melky Cabrera Jersey , the boys in blue are at risk of another epic autumn collapse.Given the dinero disparity, no one outside of L.A. will pity them.If you go by Spotrac, the Dodgers paid $200 million for their roster and the Brew Crew paid $109 million (rounding up).Yet, despite the massive dollar differential, Los Angeles is teetering on the edge of an October calamity. So much money. So few results.Yes, L.A. has won six straight division titles and advanced to Game 7 of the World Series in 2017.Executive Andrew Friedman and company have constructed an annually relevant operation thanks to an effective drafting and development strategy, aggressive moves on the international market and the backing of deep-pocketed owners.That said, the Dodgers haven't hoisted a Commissioner's Trophy since 1988. Contending is fine, but what is it worth if you're always the Brooklyn Bridegrooms and never the bride?The Dodgers dispatched the youthful Atlanta Braves in four games in the National League Division Series. Goliath won that round. Tip your slingshot.Through three games against Milwaukee, on the other hand, Los Angeles hasn't played like a powerhouse bound for confetti and champagne.On Monday http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-jeff-keppinger-jersey , Dodgers hitters were frequently befuddled by the smoke-and-mirrors breaking-ball stylings of 30-year-old journeyman Jhoulys Chacin.Bill Shaikin BillShaikinDodgers tonight, by the numbers:0: Home runs0: Runs scored0: Hits with runners in scoring position10: AB with runners in scoring position14: Strikeouts.Final: Brewers 4, Dodgers 0. The Brewers are halfway to the World Series.Credit to Chacin, who has made previous stops with the Colorado Rockies, Arizona Diamondbacks, Braves, Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres. He arrived with his A-game at Chavez Ravine.Then again, he's precisely the type of hurler the high-priced Dodgers should attack with relish. The Brewers were a great story after defeating the Chicago Cubs in a one-game tiebreaker, winning the NL Central and besting the Rockies in the division series, but the knock against them was a lack of elite starting pitching.On Monday, they were entering a stretch of three games in three days on the road. This was L.A.'s chance to get to Milwaukee's bullpen鈥攚hich ranked second in the Senior Circuit with a 3.47 regular-season ERA鈥攁nd wear them out early.Instead Joe Crede Jersey , they shot blanks against Chacin and allowed him to chew precious innings while maintaining a zero on the scoreboard.That's not the way a title favorite behaves.Superstar and trade-deadline cavalry Manny Machado went 2-for-3 with a double. Overall, though, Los Angeles' bats were limp.Hyped, fireballing rookie Walker Buehler showed flashes of a future ace after getting an intro from none other than Ben Stein. When the dust settled, however, he was outdueled by Chacin.Buehler...Buehler?Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesThe Dodgers looked solid in spurts. Ultimately, they crumbled. It's becoming an all-too-familiar refrain.Add the continued, incongruous postseason mediocrity of Clayton Kershaw, and there's cause for sweaty-palmed hand-wringing in SoCal.Here's what Kershaw, one of the greatest pitchers of his generation and possibly all-time,told reportersafter the Dodgers' Game 7 loss to the Astros in the 2017 Fall Classic: "Maybe one of these days http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-james-shields-jersey , I won't fail, we won't fail and we'll win one of these things."Maybe? Maybe isn't good enough. Windows don't stay open forever, even when you spend the gross domestic product of a small nation on payroll and face a small-market engine that could like Milwaukee.Another deep run won't suffice. Even another NL flag won't suffice. It's title or bust. After Game 3's goose egg against the Brewers, "bust" is the operative word.All statistics current as of Monday and courtesy of Baseball Reference. Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Vottowas placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right lower leg contusion, the team announcedFriday.Votto has been hobbled since taking a fastball from Washington Nationals reliever Ryan Madson to the knee on Aug. 4:The Reds star was clearly heated, wondering if it was retaliation for a Bryce Harper hit-by-pitch."My reaction kind of falls in line with [not knowing Madson's intent]," Votto said, via MLB.com's Kyle Melnick.Outfielder Aristides Aquino, the team's No. 16 overall prospect, has been called up from Double-A in a corresponding move.Votto is still one of the National League's most productive players at the plate as he exits what are typically a player's peak seasons at age 34. He topped 20 home runs for the eighth time in 2017 with 36 and also led the NL in on-base percentage for the second straight year.He is hitting .284 with nine home runs, 24 doubles Ron Santo Jersey , 55 RBI anda league-leading .422 on-base percentage. He has hit just .227 with one extra-base hit and three RBI in eight games since the incident, missing a pair of contests during that time.The Toronto native has also remained durable over recent years. He's played at least 158 regular-season games in four of the last five campaigns. The one exception came in 2014 when he was limited to 62 appearances due to a quadriceps issue.Cincinnati doesn't have a proven replacement for Votto. After having traded Adam Duvall at the non-waiver deadline, Jim Riggleman will have to figure out a solution. Dilson Herrera, Brandon Dixon, Curt Casali and Tucker Barnhart could all see time at first.Ultimately, the Reds' batting order isn't anywhere near as potent without Votto in the middle, no matter how they try to replace him. That said, the focus now is making sure he's able to shake off any issues so they don't linger throughout the year.
