Dodgers News: Alex Verdugo Has Some Questionable Comments About 2020 Championship Season

The 2020 Dodgers World Series was one for the ages. The Dodgers defeated the Tampa Bay Rays, 4-2 in the best of seven series to take home their first World Series title in 32 years at the time. 

Unfortunately for us, the novel Coronavirus rocked the entire world and the Dodgers were not able to celebrate the victory with their fans or at Dodger Stadium

The World Series was played at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, home of the Texas Rangers, home of now World Series MVP, Corey Seager. 

While the Dodgers and Dodger faithful are worried about capturing their second title in three seasons, one former Dodger has questions about the 2020 World Series title the Dodgers earned. 

Now, this could simply be taken as former Dodger Alex Verdugo still being salty for trading him to Boston for Mookie Betts or this could have some truth to it. 

The 2020 World Series had some unique challenges compared to other World Series titles. All players and coaches involved in it had to isolate themselves and be away from their loved one for long periods of time in order to capture a World Series title.

There was no true home field advantage and players had to creature their own type of energy to go and perform for a 60 game season.

On the flip side, it was no where near to a close regular season 162 games and missing those 102 extra games are a big deal. But, at the end of the day the Dodgers were still the best team that year going 43-17 and were on pace to win for at least 116 wins if things played out as normal. 

Of course, nothing was normal that season and everyone else dealt with the same thing. 

Verdugo has the right to voice his opinion, but it sounds like he’s still a little mad at LA for trading him for a superstar talent in Betts. 

That’s the nature of the business, but you can’t blame him for feeling a little hurt from going to the best team in the league to missing the playoffs.

  1. Baseball is a business. Most players come and most players go. It’s a sad cinereo but that’s life in sports.

  2. Well, Alex won’t be getting any rings with that Boston team. He has not reached the stardom that was expected of him.

  3. Alex Verdugo was never a “fit” for the Dodgers. I was shocked the first time I saw him with all of his Tattoos. If you look at the Dodger front office, they are ok with having wild hair, but that is it. The rest of the team looks professional. They do not like selfish players like Machado, Soto etc. Verdugo I knew was a gone-er just from the way be looked and handled himself.

  4. Verdugo can stay gone from the Dodgers. He’ll make a good Yankee, the team that people love to hate. Jealous much, Alex.
