Dodgers Announce Their 2021 Coaching Staff With Some Additions

With George Lombard gone, LA had to get a new first base coach.



The reigning World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers have their coaching staff announced for the 2021 season. With the departure of George Lombard to the Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles had to find a replacement at first base. 

The Dodgers tabbed Clayton McCullough to take over as the first base coach for the 2021 season. McCullough is in the seventh season with the organization previously serving as a minor league field coordinator. He had also helped oversee the alternate location at the USC campus during the 2020 season. 

For the most part, the Dodgers coaching staff essentially stays the same from the 2020 season. Bob Geren will return for his 6th season as the bench coach for Los Angeles. Mark Prior had his first season as the pitching coach last year and will once again come back in the position. Dino Ebel remains the third base coach for Dave Roberts. Rob Van Scoyoc and Brant Brown will also return as the dynamic hitting duo.

Dave Roberts will obviously be coming back for his sixth season as the Dodgers manager. This will be the first time that he gets to start off the season as a defending World Series champion though. Doc has taken his team to the World Series in 3 of the last 4 years.

  1. If not for Doc Roberts’s hare-brained in-game pitching decisions they would have been 4 for the last 4 years in the WS and probably won at least 1 if not two other WS titles.
    If not for the Rays coach doing a Roberts type in-game pitching decision Roberts might have somehow managed to lose in 2020 also.
    Not a Roberts fan ever! Great managers inspire their teams to achieve above their talent level. Lasorda was the type of manager whose teams overachieved. Roberts’s teams consistently underachieve.
    As long as Roberts is coach the Dodgers will have to have more talent than any of their opponents in order to repeat as WS champions. Fortunately for Dodger fans, the Dodger organization is set up to be a dominant team for the foreseeable future. Too bad they are blind to Roberts’s lack of in-game decision-making.

    • It wasn’t Roberts who made 2 errors in the 9th inning of an earlier WS game that handed the Rays a victory. Without the gaffes Dodgers win in 5.

  2. Tmax-

    I’ve always agreed w each and every one of your posts, pretty much every word. I tend agree again w your assessment of the WS and previous obviously. But I do disagree that Roberts doesn’t get his players to “over achieve”. CT3, Muncy, Smith, Turner, all of them went from fringe roster guys to stars for the Dodgers. The team had one of the highest winning % in baseball history this year. The roster has an abundance of talent for damn sure, but it’s not all time good. The passion these guys bring night after night is a reflect on their coach. I’m not label Roberts as a top 3 manager by any stretch, but we need to give him credit where credit is do imo
