Dodgers: New Year’s Resolutions for All of the Team

LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 01: Yuli Gurriel /
3 of 5
Dodgers /


Yasmani Grandal: I resolve to be prepared to be traded, benched, platooned, etc., realizing I’m no longer the No. 1 catcher on this team.

Austin Barnes: I resolve to play like I did down the stretch. I resolve to work harder than I did last season, know that the team is going to be counting on me to be who I was down the stretch in 2017.

Kyle Farmer: I resolve to stay quiet and do whatever the team asks of me.


Cody Bellinger: I resolve to stop swinging at the down-and-in curveball whenever I get two strikes on me. I resolve not to become obsessed with home runs, no matter how sexy they are.

Logan Forsythe: I resolve, in my contract year, to be the guy the Dodgers acquired for top pitching prospect Jose De Leon last winter (20 HR, 52 RBIs, .264/.333/.444 in 2016). I resolve to continue to play stellar defense and swing a hot bat versus lefties (.290/.418/.452 in 2017).

Corey Seager: I resolve to not get injured. OK, so I can’t really resolve that, but I do resolve to do whatever is necessary to keep me on the field as much as possible. If necessary, I resolve to get my elbow taken care of in April rather than September, knowing we’ll be in first place when I return.

Justin Turner: I resolve to continue to be the face of the team and keep on doing what I’ve been doing. I also resolve to whisper in Clayton’s ear about his contract just as I did with Kenley in the winter of 2016.
