The 2021 MLB season has ended, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are … not atop the mountain, as they were at the end of the previous year.
Did you enjoy that feeling? Did you like Clayton Kershaw running in from the bullpen triumphantly instead of sitting on the quiet back portion of the bench, just out of view? Us, too. Time to get to work.
It’s difficult to repeat in this sport, which Los Angeles fans can take solace in. After all, the Braves just became the ninth distinct champion in nine years, which is nearly unheard of. Parity reigns … as difficult as that is to hear.
Luckily, Los Angeles will have plenty of opportunities to regain control of their kingdom this offseason, as well as a multitude of huge decisions to make as they attempt to prioritize their high-dollar contracts and ditch the internet troll they willingly gave a record deal to last summer.
Who stays? Who goes? We won’t find out just yet, but we’re officially on notice.
