Things feel a little bit bleak in Los Angeles. The Dodgers have lost 15 of their last 20 games and have already matched their loss total from the shortened 2020 season. The offense has completely stalled out and the health of the team is constantly in question.
But at the end of the day, they’re still the Dodgers. They’re still loaded with big names like Mookie Betts, Trevor Bauer, Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager, and many more. With guys like that on your side, it’s difficult to imagine this losing streak going on for long.
That’s how Jon Heyman views it. In a recent appearance on MLB Network, Heyman defended the Dodgers and had a positive outlook on their 2021 season. In fact, Heyman was so confident they would win 100 or more games that he was willing to bet on it.
I wouldn’t worry about this team. Because the whole team is going to be good. I think we’re wasting our breath right now because this team is going to win 100 games. I’ll bet anyone on that right now.
The Dodgers would have to go 82-45 the rest of the year in order to reach 100 wins. Looking at it that way, it’s not entirely out of the question that they would be able to pull something like that off. Especially with the talented names on their roster.
It’s hard to envision this team winning any games at all at the moment. But the Dodgers can’t be held down for long. They’ll start winning games, and one day soon, we’ll be able to look back on this stretch and laugh.
