The Dodgers 2021 season did not go as planned. But despite all of the injuries and distractions in the clubhouse, they still managed to pull out 106 wins and come within 2 more of another World Series appearance.
But they ultimately ran out of gas and fell short of their goals. And while they took the day to decompress and absorb the loss and boot from the playoffs, Dodgers players took to social media today to thank fans.
Justin Turner references clubhouse distractions for the Dodgers in his post. We’ll let fans guess what he meant by that. But there were a lot of really cool moments in the 2021 season despite falling short of another title.
Crazy year I’m forever grateful for!! Big thank you to the fans! GoDodgers pic.twitter.com/77B5MRzSAT

Trea Turner had a wild year in 2021. He won the 2021 batting title despite moving from Washington to the Dodgers in a midseason trade. He also dealt with COVID in the middle of all of that and had to adjust to a whole new setting in the midst of it.
Clayton Kershaw kept is as short as you might expect from a guy like him that doesn’t use social media all that much. But the Dodgers southpaw acknowledged the difficulty of being a cheerleader and dealing with injuries as well.
Dodgers fans thank you for your support, we love you very much!
We fought as far as we could, it’s time to prepare for the new year, which will bring many more blessings.

The Bazooka gave a quick message via Twitter, and it was as sweet as you might expect from the kid.
The Dodgers could potentially be losing a lot of big names from the 2021 team, and that’s going to be tough. But there is no denying the fight that they had this year, overcoming a whole lot of adversity to finish near the top.
