Who Is The One Player the Dodgers Can’t Live Without According to MLB?
The Dodgers have their fair share of All-Stars and talented players on their roster, including two of the MLB’s best in Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman. It’s almost difficult to pick the team’s “best player,” or the team’s “most valuable” one. However, over on MLB.com, Will Leitch gave it a shot in his article picking the player every team can’t live without.
And when he got to the Dodgers, he ultimately went with the guy who’s going to be here for a long, long time in Betts. Here’s what he had to say:
“For all the turnover with the Dodgers this offseason, Betts is the heart and soul of the team … And don’t forget, a two-time World Series winner already.”
Betts definitely has the talent, already making six All-Star teams and winning an MVP Award at just 30 years old. He also hits in the leadoff spot for this team, and is arguably the best defender, winning six Gold Gloves in the past seven years.
He’s entering his fourth season with the club, making him one of the longer tenured players after all the turnover this offseason. He and Freeman will definitely fight for the “best player” crown all year long, but what they each bring to the club is invaluable.
So it’s hard to argue with Leitch on this one. He really could have gone either way, but it’s fair to say Betts, whose contract will keep him in Los Angeles through the 2032 season, is the one player this team cannot live without.
