Dodgers News: Replay Reviews May be DFA’d, Mookie’s Message to KBO, and More!

Of the many big changes coming to the upcoming season for the Dodgers and the 29 other teams, it seems like replay reviews may take a back seat in 2020. Because of course the umpire’s union would ask for that (looking at you, Angel Hernandez).

The Associated Press and Ben Walker had this to say.

Replay reviews could vanish in Major League Baseball in 2020 as part of a deal with umpires that contemplates a possible “monastery setup” in which off-the-field movement is restricted because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This came together as MLB and umpires came to an agreement about pay for the upcoming season which guaranteed they would make 37.5% of their salaries. The umps will be paid a pro-rated share of their salaries based on games over a 182-day season.

Now just to get baseball back and make this mean anything.

One place getting baseball back is Korea. Yes, the KBO (Korean Baseball Organization) returns on Monday night and Dodger slugger Mookie Betts was very excited about it. In fact, he did something he rarely does… he posted on Twitter.

Baseball fans have already taken to choosing their new KBO teams, at least for the time being. Some are also planning on watching and developing allegiances along the way. There’s already a fair number of folks gravitating toward last year’s champion the Doosan Bears. But that decision is more likely due to the fact that they’re “da bears” more than hopping on the bandwagon.
