  1. Cody ripped that pitch. He had a few hard hit balls. He looks really sharp and I look for him to be an MVP candidate again.

  2. The Dodgers need the Bellinger of early 2019 not the late 2019 Bellinger. As he decided to work with his swing and stance. If he is smart he attempts to copy whatever he was doing for his start of the year last year where he was hitting 400 with power.
    The X factors are Smith and Lux for offense we shall see how they do. Seager is going to be a huge addition this year as he was able to work on his swing rather than rehab.
    If the bullpen Jansen, Kelly & Treinen find their groove they could be the best in baseball with the addition of Graterol and other young arms in support May, Gonzalez, Ferguson etc.
    I am predicting 40 wins but more importantly hoping for a WS win.

  3. There were no bold predictions in this article. If the title said it was I podcast I wouldn’t have opened it. How good titles.

  4. Series to forward to the most… Houston at Dodger Stadium where the announcer will introduce them as ‘Houston Cheaters’. Houston players will walk off field and forfeit game.

  5. 47 wins is the best prediction of the bunch. Seager is hitting rockets. Bellinger looks like April May last year. Justin looks like Justin. Mookie looks like Mookie. Joc looks like Joc last year. Pollack looks better than last year. Dodger players have a chip on their shoulders. We have a really special 60+ game run coming. Hold on your hats. By the way, I still think Clayton has another ERA title in the next couple years.

  6. My parents were born in Brooklyn and moved to LA in 1946. I was born a few ticks later…So I’ve followed the Dodgers and MLB for over 70 years. But this season is a complete and unequivocal sham! If the Dodgers were to actually win the so-called World Series this season, the fans on this thread will be excited? Are you kidding me? This is a complete joke, and the joke is on the fans. Count me out for this season!

    1. I agree it would not be what we all dreamed of and it wouldn’t be for our players either. Baseball isn’t baseball with a crowd especially a playoff one. Without it it just takes the whole meaning and emotion out of it and there will be little to no pressure which makes it less respectable. And let’s not forget the season part which is only 60 games, yes the Dodgers and a few others were going to make it regardless but some of their opponents will not be playoff worthy, there will be no parade either. When us as fans and our organization first set out in 2013 to win a championship, is this how we wanted it? I think everyone can agree deep down that it’s not, a 60 game season with no fans and no parade. Just cardboard and fake crowd noise
