Dodgers Offense Rated the Top in Major League Baseball



There is a lot to be excited about in 2021 if you’re a Dodgers fan. The addition of Trevor Bauer to an already talented team paired with the additions to the Padres should make for an exciting season in the NL West. Not to mention, the offense really has the potential to be something special.

The Dodgers had down years from a bunch of big names on offense in 2020. Max Muncy was injured and didn’t really catch fire until the playoffs. Cody Bellinger messed with his swing and it never looked the same. Even Gavin Lux wasn’t the guy that they had hoped he could be. 

Despite that, the Dodgers enter 2021 with the top-ranked offense. Ben Verlander did his preseason rankings for offenses around MLB, and Los Angeles was right there at the top. To be fair, it’s hard not to put them their given the talent on the field.

The Dodgers head into the new year with all of these big names looking to rebound. That is in addition to guys like Mookie Betts and Corey Seager, who did not miss a beat during the World Series run. 

And don’t forget, the Dodgers also get Justin Turner back in Los Angeles. Adding a veteran with that big of a voice in the clubhouse and that great of a bat on the field is huge. They may have lost guys like Joc Pederson and Enrique Hernandez, but they are arguably already better on paper.

  1. I have to respectfully disagree with Dodgers at top rated offense and not having the DH is one reason. Will Smith sits when Barnes catches. Rios and others will not have as many chances for consistent AB’s with the pitcher batting. Not to mentioned the 7th and 8th hitters may be pitched around. And ido I think it’s fully safe for pitchers to bat after more than a year off? No i do not.
