One of the more talked about narratives of late has been that the Dodgers were wrong in letting star shortstop Corey Seager head to the Texas Rangers two years ago. LA tried to keep him, but they also didn’t offer him the most amount of money that they could have.
It was history from there, and Seager just helped lead the Rangers to win their first World Series in franchise history. He won the World Series MVP, making him only the second-ever position player to win the award with two different teams.
Seager is one of the best players in baseball, and with his second championship ring, the question now starts about him possibly being a Hall of Famer down the line. He is only 29 years old, so there is plenty of time for him to continue winning.
Here at DodgersNation, we asked the question to Dodgers fans about which team Seagar would go into the Hall of Fame with if he ever made it. You can see the results below.
A whopping 71.5 percent of the over 6,000 votes predicted that Corey Seager would go into the Hall of Fame as a Texas Ranger.
While he did help the Dodgers win a World Series, it was during the shortened 60-game 2020 season. This isn’t taking anything away from the 2020 championship, but he just won a championship with the Rangers over the course of a regular 162 season.
He also was a part of a team that went 11-0 on the road in the postseason, something that had never happened before. Additionally, we don’t know how much more success he will see during his time with the Rangers.
Texas has the team in place to be around for a long time, and Seager figures to be the head of the snake for at least the next few years. He is lining himself up to have one of the more successful careers in recent memory, and while it stings to see him wearing another team’s uniform, it is well deserved.
For any Dodgers fans who were sad to see Seager win with the Rangers, take some solace in the fact that he took down the Houston Astros in the ALCS, and then followed that up by knocking out the division rival Arizona Diamondbacks to win the World Series. Once a member of the Dodgers, always a member of the Dodgers.
