The Texas Rangers are World Series champions for the first time in their 63-year franchise history. They beat the Arizona Diamondbacks in five games, and finally join the ranks of the MLB’s elite.
The Rangers were littered with former Dodgers, and many of them played a huge role all postseason long and especially in Game 5. Former Dodger Nathan Eovaldi pitched six shutout innings in Game 5, while former Dodger Josh Sborz pitched the final 2.1 innings of the game and was on the mound for the final out of the 5-0 win.
However, no former Dodger played a bigger role in the Rangers winning this World Series than Corey Seager.
Seager was beyond dominant all regular season and postseason long, and culminated it with another incredible World Series performance.
He ended up winning the World Series MVP for Texas this year, becoming just the fourth player in MLB history to win multiple World Series MVP awards — of course, Seager won the award in 2020 with the Dodgers.
Even more impressive, Seager is just the second player in MLB history to win a World Series MVP award with two teams. And most impressively, he’s the first player in MLB history to win a World Series MVP award in both leagues.
Seager will forever feel like the one that got away in Los Angeles, especially as he’s still just 29 years old. He’s going to be dominating the MLB for years to come, but doing it in the wrong shade of blue.
At this point, though, there’s nothing Dodger fans can do except root for the amazing superstar, and be happy for him as he continues to etch his name among the baseball greats — especially come October.
Congrats to Seager and the Rangers on winning the World Series in 2023.
Now, it’s time for an exciting offseason…
