Dodgers announcers predict Corey Seager’s monster 3-run blast vs White Sox
Los Angeles Dodgers super-stud Corey Seager is playing for his new contract this spring (LOL, are we really going to let this thing hit free agency?).
But if you told us the following highlight came from Nov. 2 in the midst of the Dodgers’ World Series run, we wouldn’t have batted an eye.
It’s like he never left.
Seager has bet on himself this year, and if extension talks aren’t underway now, it might be a while before we actually see that signature. But … can we be real for a second? These two sides fit like a glove. Is he really going anywhere?
In case anyone needed more evidence of a perfect match, the Dodgers broadcast team saw Seager stride to the plate Monday with two on and nobody out, knew exactly what would happen next, and … put it out into the world.
On the very first pitch, Seager ambushed and delivered, making the swamis in the booth look like geniuses.
Everybody’s in midseason form, we guess!
Will Dodgers star Corey Seager get that extension?
Now, come on, Corey. How much will it cost to get you back in Dodger Blue full time?
So far, so good for Seager’s strategy of waiting out the market and showing off his skills for a full 162 before entering negotiations. Francisco Lindor has already been knocked out of the running; his new deal should come with the Mets before Opening Day, and will only further set the market.
Coming off a hypothetical Lindor deal and the Fernando Tatis Jr. mega-contract that came well before it had to, Seager is now sitting pretty and riding a lot more hard evidence than just the recitation of his World Series stats.
We’re still confident his home is in Hollywood, though. Slightly less confident than with the Justin Turner talks, but pretty darn confident.
In case you’re worried, just listen to Seager singing the praises of the LA locals this spring:
We’re only a few weeks away from a title defense kicking off with fans in the stands. This is not the time to be worried.
Just like the Dodgers broadcast team, we’ll get into the prediction game and say it’ll all be handled anyway.
