Hello fellow Dodgers fans. I have been away for a while, I had a real hard time getting over that Game 7 loss in the World Series. The missed opportunities of that series are very haunting. I needed to get away for a while to mourn. But life goes on and a new season will begin. That brings me to the winter meetings going on right now in Orlando.
The Dodgers lost Brandon Morrow to the Cubs and the Cubs also got Tyler Chatwood. Of course the elephant in the room, Giancarlo Stanton going to the Yankees. The Yankees got within a game of getting to the World Series. They are the odds on favorite to win it at this point. But this season we have to hear about the financial constraints of the Dodgers while the Yankees go and get Stanton when he wanted to come to the Dodgers. Imagine a right handed stick like Stanton in the Dodgers lineup. Dodgers would’ve been very hard to beat. Now he will form a Murderers row with Judge and the Yankees. All these teams that don’t go the extra mile like the Yankees to win have to realize your going have to be beat the Yankees to win the title. Why keep helping them?
The Dodgers had a magical season, but their are no guarantees that it will be replicated. Right now I just heard that the Cardinals are the favorites to land Marlin’s outfielder Marcell Ozuna. The Dodgers have a lot of prospects and depth to pull from to make these type of trades, so why don’t they? Dodgers attendance is always at the top of the league. They also have their TV deal which stinks for most of us, to add more money to their already rich pot. The idea of millionaires worrying about money and how to make more of it is lame. Guggenheim also has other businesses at their leisure. We the fans want a title delivered, it’s been 30 years. So we don’t want to hear about financial constraints. We always hear about all our depth and prospects but yet other teams make deals and we don’t.
Maybe Stanton was to big a fish to pry. But you cant allow every team to get better while we stand pat and expect to win a title. FAZ is supposed to be brilliant, well it’s time to get creative and add to our arsenal to make another run at a title.
