Dodgers News: Max Muncy Compares 2023 Team to World Series Winning 2020 Squad

As the Dodgers get ready to start their postseason run, they will be doing so with a much different feeling than in years past. LA will be relying upon multiple unproven guys across their lineup, and they will be hoping that they can produce like they have throughout the season.

Of course, the Dodgers still have stars Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman, but they have survived on their depth this season. They have used their strong farm system, and depth more than ever in 2023, but they feel good about where they are.

Infielder Max Muncy spoke about the team and even compared them to one of the better LA rosters over the last few seasons.

“I think that’s where we feel really good with who we are this year,” Muncy said of the deep lineup behind Betts and Freeman. “This team reminds me a lot of who we were in ’20 where no matter what you did we had an answer for that. We had our guys. Seager was obviously who he was in the playoffs. Mookie was Mookie. But we had other guys to help them. That’s where I say it’s not going to live and die with Freddie and Mookie.”

While both Betts and Freeman have put together MVP-like seasons, the Dodgers have also gotten contributions from everyone on the team. It has been a different person stepping up each night out, and it has been awesome to see.

This team-first approach that LA has adopted this season has allowed them to really grow as a true, and the chemistry within the locker room is as strong as it ever has been. Utility man Chris Taylor gave thoughts on why this lineup can be tough to take down.

“I mean, they can try to not let one guy beat them. If your team is more balanced, it’s harder to do that,” Taylor said. “If you’ve got guys like Will and J.D. behind those guys and they’re hitting, you can’t really just put them on base. I think a lot of that depends on how the rest of the team is performing.”

If LA is going to win another World Series, it’s going to take a complete team effort. They just need to continue doing what they have been doing all year long, and it should work to their advantage in the playoffs.
