Dodgers: Dave Roberts Guarantees A World Series Win in 2022

Bold words right from Doc.

The beginning of the season is always so exciting. For one brief moment, every team has the opportunity to win a World Series title, and the hopes are alive. Unless of course, you’re a team like the Oakland Athletics. But the Dodgers and their fanbase have every reason to be excited about what the 2022 season could bring.

The addition of Freddie Freeman helped Dodgers fans to overcome the pain of losing franchise pieces like Corey Seager and Kenley Jansen. And now with the roster seemingly set, the anticipation for what could come in 2022 is building. 

Dave Roberts certainly adds to that every time he talks about this team’s potential. But on the Dan Patrick Show today, the Dodgers skipper made a bold guarantee about where thet team is heading this season.

“We are winning the World Series in 2022. I know where you’re going with that. We’re winning the World Series this year, put it on record. We are winning the World Series. That’s our focus, that’s our goal.”

Patrick phrased the question as ‘what needs to go right’ in order for the Dodgers to win the World Series. Doc jumped right over that and said that they are winning. But he did add to that and answer his question, saying that health is paramount. 

“But to answer your question, we are winning the World Series if our starting staff stays healthy. I know that’s vague, but I don’t want to…that’s my answer.”

Health will certainly be a big part of the Dodgers run in 2022, especially within the starting staff. There are so many question marks after Walker Buehler and Julio Urias. Even the long-term health of Clayton Kershaw is going to be something they want to keep an eye on.

But if they can stay healthy, there is no reason that the Dodgers couldn’t make it deep into October. They have the lineup, they have the bench depth, and they have the overall talent to get it done. Now they just need to make it happen.

  1. Roberts needs to win the division and pennant, first. He needs to utilize David Price as a starter and figure out how to, properly, manage a bullpen. He needs to sped time managing in the minors.

  2. I’m tired of all the “we are going to the world series or we are going to win it” at the beginning of the year. Last year, we couldn’t lose it. Wew didn’t even get there. It’s a long season and a lot can happen. How about “with our current team and no major injusies, we SHOULD win the world series”. This is reality. We don’t even have a starting rotation yet. We have two starters plus a bunch of unproven potentials
