State Of The Dodgers

Opening Day

It’s the weirdest and craziest opening day

ever. The season has been reduced to 60

games from the usual 162 after a global

pandemic put everything non-essential on

pause.

Now we are here in the dog days of July

the time of the year where the top teams

start making their run to the postseason

and where bad teams are shipping off top

talent and shedding cap space to give

their prospects a chance at the Show.

Yep! the 2020 season will start on

Thursday July 23rd with the Los Angeles

Dodgers facing off against their arch

rivals the San Fransico Giants.

Clayton Kershaw will regular opening day

start that has became the norm over the

past decade against a familiar foe. It’s

been 50/50 for the LA Dodgers Ace but

lately he has been pretty dominant

against their bitter rivals.

The Lineup for the LA Dodgers has been

upgraded with former AL MVP Mookie

Betts being acquired in the winter and just

signing a monster deal which is 12 years;

$360 Million.

Then there is Cody Bellinger who is

becoming the superstar the organization

envisioned and now in his 4th season he is

ready to deliver the elusive World Series

Trophy that has eluded the Team twice in

the last 3 years.

Corey Seager is now healthy and is

showing signs of the All-Star he was back

in 2017 when the Dodgers made their

World Series run in a season where he

was awarded the Silver Slugger award as

the top hitting ShortStop in the League.

The opening day game will have a

different feel the Dodgers will infuse crowd

noise and cutouts of die hard fans and LA

Celebrities. The game will be tough due to

both teams still getting used to being

back playing full time. I expect a pitchers

duel In this game and whole lot of drama

in the late innings. Expect another

opening day nail biter from the oldest

rivalry in the National League.
