Joc Pederson completely writing off Dodgers with latest IG post?
It was so wrong watching Joc Pederson go on a World Series run with another team — let alone an NL rival — and Los Angeles Dodgers fans had to deal with other jabs along the way.
And it’s not like Pederson was some background figure. His clutch-ness was crucial in getting the Braves past the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLDS and his one homer and four RBI in the NLCS against the Dodgers played a role in dispatching the defending champs.
Other jabs that were thrown in there? Pederson’s commentary on how the Dodgers let him walk in free agency after he helped the team win a championship in 2020 and then letting all of LA know that the city missed out big time on a parade after he had just gotten done celebrating with Atlanta. Oh, and he penned a letter to Atlanta in The Players’ Tribune.
The hits keep on coming, though. On Tuesday, Pederson expressed his impatience with the current MLB lockout and revealed he was eager for the start of spring training … accompanied by a picture with his former CHICAGO CUBS teammates.
Joc Pederson’s IG post indicating he’s writing off Dodgers?
Those beloved Cubs teammates he spent … barely three months with? What’re we missing here? Not to mention, after his LA-themed Super Bowl post congratulating the Rams, he managed to sandwich in two other posts commemorating the Braves’ 2021 World Series run.
Correct us if we’re wrong, but that’s Pederson pictured with Trevor Williams, Ian Happ and Anthony Rizzo. Happ and Rizzo were just spotted together taking batting practice, so could there be some sort of Chicago reunion in the works after Pederson, Williams and Rizzo were jettisoned at the trade deadline (though Williams is stuck on the Mets)?
But then again … the Universal DH is coming. And the Dodgers need some outfield depth. Could kill two birds with one stone here if the relationship isn’t fully severed.
At the very least, can we get a throwback Dodgers picture with some of the boys? This era of Dodgers baseball looks to be coming to a close and fans certainly would prefer it be a little less abrupt.
