The amount of disrespect towards the Dodgers over the last week is a little overwhelming. From the moment that the Padres landed Blake Snell in a trade, it seemed like the entire MLB forgot what happened just a few months ago. It’s almost as if Los Angeles didn’t just dominate an entire season and take home a World Series.
The latest disrespect comes by way of MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince. In his latest article, Castrovince gave a few bol predictions for the 2021 season as we enter the New Year. One of those predictions was that the Braves would win the National League pennant and that the Dodgers would be knocked out early.
Castrovince didn’t even think that the Dodgers would make it to the Championship Series. He felt that Los Angeles would get upset early, hinting that they wouldn’t make it through the Division Series with their current roster. While it’s fair to say that the Braves can actually be that good, it seems like a stretch to write off LA that early.
Yes, the Padres added a ton of talent so far this offseason. But the Dodgers aren’t really close to even getting started making their moves, and Castrovince even predicts that they still win the National League West. I don’t know when it got cool to disrespect the Dodgers, but it’s getting a little tiring at this point.
Here’s to hoping that just a few months from now, we can all look back at Castrovince’s predictions and laugh.
