Dodgers fans that got to watch Corey Seager in the playoffs this year weren’t even a little surprised. Anyone who has been there since day 1 with Seager knows what he is capable of, and the level that he can play at. The only major difference this year that he was 100 percent healthy and ready to go from the onset of the season.
All of that culminated in winning the World Series and NLCS MVP in what can only be described as one of the best offensive postseasons we’ve seen in a while. Despite that, there are still experts who don’t quite believe that Seager ranks among the games best.
ESPN’s Buster Olney recently released his rankings for the best shortstops in baseball, and Dodgers fans probably won’t love it. Seager did finish in the top-5, but he had 4 other guys that ranked ahead of him. Those players were(in order) Francisco Lindor, Fernando Tatis Jr, Trevor Story, and Tim Anderson.
Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t meant as any sort of disrespect to any of those guys. After all, each of those 4 shortstops are some of the best players in the game today. But Dodgers fans know that Seager can be one of the best in the game at his position when healthy.
Lindor is perhaps one of the most comparable players for Seager’s talents. Dodgers fans have certainly become familiar with the comparisons as the Lindor to LA rumors spread like wildfire around the internet for the last few years. While Lindor does rank better with the glove, the bats swing more toward Seager.
Regardless of where he ranks, Seager did make the list. He’ll do his talking on the field in 2021.
