Back before the season started, I touched on the Dodgers outfield “problem.” Looking back at it, my predictions were pretty far off, but then they looked as if they were the best options.

After the first month of the season, the team has had it’s fair share of injuries to the outfield. So many injuries that the team was rushed to call up top prospect Cody Bellinger. Between injuries and lack of production, the outfield has come to look very different from first expected. 21 games into the season I’ll take another look at the options and talk about what the ideal outfield should be.
