What moves can the Dodgers make in the coming weeks that would make me happy?
The Dodgers have already had a busy offseason despite not making many roster moves. Time will tell whether Dave Roberts will be an upgrade at manager over Don Mattingly, but the Dodgers will undoubtably look different next year, both in their coaching staff and on the roster.
The Winter Meeting will kick off on December 7 in Nashville, TN, and are usually a very busy time for all teams, including the Dodgers. It feels sort of quiet right now, a calm before the storm sort of thing before all hell breaks loose and everyone gets traded for everyone.
Last year’s Winter Meetings saw Brandon McCarthy, Howie Kendrick, Jimmy Rollins, Yasmani Grandal, Enrique Hernandez, Chris Hatcher and Austin Barnes become Dodgers while Dee Gordon, Matt Kemp and Dan Haren, among others, were jettisoned from LA. Lots of moves can and will be made, probably out of nowhere, but here is my best case scenario for the Winter Meetings and the rest of the offseason.
