It would not have taken a lot for the Dodgers to take care of their place as the very best bona fide crew within the NL West. In spite of everything, they’d received greater than 100 video games in every of the final three full seasons and 4 of the final 5. Your checklist was constructed to achieve success proper now and for a very long time. So what in the event that they misplaced some key items? Their farm system and large payroll would hold them on the prime of the division, particularly contemplating that just one crew, the Padres, was a right away menace.
Nicely, the Padres aren’t only a menace anymore, they’re severe contenders, presumably with a greater lineup. Positive, the Dodgers nonetheless have the benefit of their rotation, however Los Angeles hasn’t confronted such a threatening lineup in a number of, a number of years. Bogaerts, Soto, Machado, Tatis, Jake Cronenworth, Trent Grisham. That’s the stuff of nightmares. How do the Dodgers counterattack? Mookie Betts (pictured), Will Smith and Freddie Freeman are nice. Then who? JD Martinez, 35 (pictured)? Miguel Rojas? Two males who simply had the worst seasons of their careers in Chris Taylor and Max Muncy? I don’t adore it
