Dodgers News: JT Realmuto, Yasmani Grandal, Second Base
The Dodgers usher in 2019 with the same goal as before: win the World Series. To get there, changes still need to be made and holes must be filled prior to the start of spring training which lies just over a month away.
2018 was a success and failure all in its own right. Max Muncy came roaring onto the scene and, until the World Series, he never seemed to slow down. In what ended up being his last season as a Dodgers, Yasiel Puig shined in right field opposite another beloved player in Matt Kemp.
In that regard, the individual stories, 2018 was fantastic. But the Dodgers shortcomings continued in the postseason, losing the World Series for a second straight year although this time, it never felt close.
That is why 2019 is a new year with an even better chance. Sure, 2017 ended in heartbreak just to be followed by the same letdown but 2019 has seen two defeats in two years prior. Here are the ways the Dodgers are trying to improve to make the necessary changes to get back to the promise land.
