Monday’s MLB Trade Deadline has come and gone, and for the most of the day, Dodger fans were quite frustrated with the way the Dodger front office was handling the deadline. Little did Dodger fans know, Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi had a few moves up their sleeves that would change the landscape of the MLB.
As Sunit Bhakta pointed out in an article earlier this week, the Dodgers made the deadline eventful for Dodger fans, waiting until the very last 15 minutes to pull off any deal. Well, the patience of Dodger fans paid off as the front office was able to pull off one of the biggest trades in the last five years by grabbing one of the most touted starting pitchers available.
Now a few days after the deadline the rosters are being reconstructed to add these three new pieces to the major league club. I’ll go through each deal and grade the trade for the front office and examine how each player could contribute to this special Dodger team.
