ICYMI: Credits: How the Dodgers Could Trade for Giancarlo Stanton

Here’s J.P. Hoonstra to tie a little bow on the incredible season Gordon enjoyed.

As we wrote earlier this morning (with quotes from the L.A. Times), Farhan Zaidi admits that the Dodgers didn’t anticipate this kind of season from Gordon. Yes, he had plenty of upside, but there’s simply no way to predict this kind of immediate improvement in all aspects of his game.

Either way, though, the trade is behind us. Gordon deserves all the credit in the world for showing such great improvement. When a situation like a trade happens, it’s on the player to show the organization that traded him it was stupid to do so. In that sense, we’re happy for Gordon.

About The Author


First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
