Dodgers News: Radio Personality Says LA Will Make Huge Splash in Offseason

Dodger fans are still recovering from LA’s embarrassing NLDS loss to the San Diego Padres this past weekend. It hasn’t been easy to read the news or go on Twitter lately, as it’s all just constant reminders of the disappointing end to a promising season.

AM570’s Ben Maller had a huge tirade in which he laid into Dave Roberts and the team for their inability to manage this series correctly. But, amid his angry diatribe, he made an interesting point about the upcoming offseason.

“The Dodgers will make another splash,” Maller said. “I will guarantee you they make another big signing in free agency. And if they don’t make a free agent signing, they’ll trade for somebody big this offseason. They have to, they have no choice.”

The ‘no choice’ aspect of the argument is the part that stands out. Coming off a year in which a team won 111 games, you would think they wouldn’t want to change things up too drastically. But the fact that this team got bounced in the NLDS — and came away with just one postseason victory — they clearly need to make some changes.

And even more so, the Dodgers need to make an offseason move to pique the interests of their fans again. It won’t be easy to sell the fans next year on enjoying regular season baseball when clearly those games don’t matter at all. The Dodgers could win 112 games next season, and no one would bat an eye unless they came through in the postseason.

So the front office needs to make some serious changes to the roster this offseason if they want any chance of getting fans excited for a regular season that they now know does not matter in the slightest.

So expect the Dodgers to be very active this offseason, especially when it comes to the biggest names on the market. At least that’s something to look forward to.

  1. As long as, they have Dave Roberts managing the team… we will not see our Dodgers win a World Series…

  2. The best move they could make is get rid of Robert’s but that won’t happen. Next year they will have a great season then Robert’s will screw them again in the playoffs.

  3. We need at least 2 or 3 great starting pitchers, and a closer. Assume Kersh will be gone. Keep Trea Turner, and trade for a good defensive center fielder that can hit. Pitching will be the key, along with not making stupid decisions in the post season.

    • Yes except for center field. Bring up Outman from OKC and unless he goes all season hitting about .175 keep him up with the big club. Can’t be any worse than looper swing Bellinger and probably a lot better in the box.

  4. This isn’t “Draft Day”? Big splash my a$$!
    Fire Roberts, Andrew Friedman General Manager Brandon Gomes. Hire old school blood.
    Let T.Turner, Beli, Kershaw, Galo, Kimbrel, CT3, go. Let the new blood play. James Outman starts LF. Fire complete hitting staff. Hire Tony Robbins as EVP of Motivation and Psyche. Freddie Freeman as Team Captain.

  5. Friedman the “Professional Liar” and is “Puppet Roberts” will not deliver until one or both are no longer Dodgers

  6. Trout is the primary reason the angels are the mess they are. Huge contract and non repairable injury.

  7. Mr Arms crossed in the doughout while your season is collapsing in front of you. Dave Roberts needs to go please!!
