Hall of Fame
- May 6, 2014
I know Seager deserved it. But I really wanted Kershaw to get that MVP. Astros cheated him out of a chance in 2017. And further damaged his legacy. Woulda been fitting to see him earn a World Series MVP.
Congrats to all you Dodger fans!
I have to say, it was an ironic twist of fate that Tampa loses the WS on a night they got shut down by a team throwing a bullpen game at them.
If Julio wasn't so valuable as a starter, I would make him the closer.MLB site asked "Are the Dodgers a dynasty?" 8 straight division titles and a World Series championship is pretty darn good. But a dynasty? I would say not yet.
Next year all their key players will be back. Plus David Price. He opted out of this season. Some talented young arms on the pitching staff to go with a couple solid veterans. Talented position players. If they repeat, then I would say yes. You can use the "D" word when describing this version of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
If there would be a concern going into next season, it would be the closer. Jansen isn't what he used to be. They have some good young arms with guys who can throw 100mph. But will any of them have the needed mentality to be a quality closer? I would look at Dustin May. If he can learn to be consistent with his off speed stuff, he could be like Gagne was in his prime. Graterol would be an option too.
My favorite part was Cody saying "I'm not high when I'm playing". Specifies when playing meaning he's higher than a kite the rest of the time.
