Dodgers: Bellinger, Seager, Muncy Injury Updates, LA Selects Souza, Do They Need Another Righty Bat?

Last night marked the first time since Game 5 of the 2019 NLDS that the Dodgers played in front of a sell-out crowd at Dodger Stadium. We discuss the importance of the team playing in front of a capacity crowd again, Mookie’s breakthrough and the bizarre ending in the 9th inning where it appeared for a second that Blake Treinen struck out J.T. Realmuto with just two strikes.

Next, Dave Roberts provided an injury update on Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager and Max Muncy. Plus, the Dodgers designated RHP Nate Jones for assignment and selected OF Stephen Souza Jr.’s contract. We discuss if Souza Jr. can have an impact for the Dodgers and if the team needs to make a move for a right-handed bat.

  1. souza was very good with the tampa bay a couple of years ago this could work out well .

    1. He was released so he could go and play in Japan
      Seems they couldn’t promise him a call up and that was the deal

      Couldn’t promise him a call up?

      What did he have to hit .500?

    1. When we are healthy, we are fine. Turner. Smith. Betts. Taylor. Pollock. Three former All Stars, maybe one more this year. Pujols and Barnes. Souza adds to the mix.The test here is to not panic. Oddly enough, all our injured players will be back at the same time or close to it. And they all have awards in their back pockets. We need to stay the course. Just think back to Realmuto being available in ’16 and early ’17. They wanted Bellinger. Hmm. Would have sealed the deal. And the domino effect would have put Will Smith on the market. We are in great shape. No need to panic.

      1. Can’t complain if we have all the starting nine in the line-up together. That’s even stronger w/ an improved Lux and a much more experienced Smith compared to last year. The starting rotation should be much more dominating than 2020, again if they are all healthy. The BP looks to be status quo as last year w/ still some questions and inconsistencies, but has potential to be more effective. Only weakness is a more dependable bench or reserves that can support the regulars. Other than that, on paper, comparing position to position to other teams the Dodgers look solid.

  2. I am going to give the World Series Champ and best record in all of baseball last year. I want to believe the 2021 LAD will be successful this year. I hope

  3. 2 1/2 games behind the Giants but winning without their three best lefty bats!
    They’re going to the WS again, no doubt
