The Hot Stove is not hot, but the rumor mill is at least lukewarm, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are, as always, in the middle of it.
The Hot Stove got very hot on Thursday, when a big trade went down between two MLB interleague clubs. Although it did not involve the Los Angeles Dodgers, it could have ramifications for them down the line.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have won the NL West the last eight consecutive years. With the exception of 2018 when it took a one game playoff with the Colorado Rockies to decide the winner, the Dodgers have usually won it pretty handily and look to do so again in 2021.
Catching is one of the toughest positions on the baseball diamond. Navigating your pitching staff through any scenario, trying to help get your pitchers a lead, and of course, all that squatting.
Today would have been the day that the Winter Meetings would have started were there no Covid to ruin yet another thing. The Hot Stove might have started heating up, but instead of meeting all in one place, meetings will take place virtually, and the stove will probably stay lukewarm for awhile.
The World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers had many key players show up in big moments during the October playoff run. Seven players of the championship roster are currently free agents. With the off-season hot stove being pretty cold at the moment, there hasn’t been much action.
There’s still not much going on in the world of the Los Angeles Dodgers as far as player news goes, but there are some things going on in the organization.
We’ve reached the early stages of the offseason when the is absolutely no news. Last week, the regular season awards were announced. Now, fans just sit and wait for any rumblings of trades or signings.
And just like that, the regular season is half over.
Of course, in this time of craziness that is only 30 games, but still we find ourselves at the halfway point. The Los Angeles Dodgers just finished a schedule of 17 games in a row with two road trips embedded within. I had worried that this might be a little stumbling block for them, but they finished it with a record of 13-4.
T-minus 10 days until the Los Angeles Dodgers open up what is to be the 2020 season against the San Francisco Giants.
