Los Angeles Dodgers Have Legendary Bats and Pitching to Match Mets

What’s not to love about the Mets hosting the World Champions in August? Well, aside from the reminder that the Dodgers got their first title since 1988… when they got past the… ahem… home team (I’m STILL mad that Davey Johnson left Dwight Gooden in the ninth inning of Game Three). Still, it’s something that I’m excited to see.

The bats? Well, let’s start off with Cody Bellinger. That dude can rake. Oh yeah. That Mookie Betts guy is good… and who can resist a “Mookie” chant? Max Muncy is going to be looking to rebound from a rough 2020 season, so be on the lookout for his at-bats. Corey Seager’s going to be exciting to watch as he looks to build on that monster postseason he had, what with his eight long balls.

As far as the pitching goes… You know how there are certain pitchers and players where you know that you’re lucky to see an all-time great during your lifetime? Greg Maddux was one. Nolan Ryan was another. Clayton Kershaw is definitely on that list. Remember, time goes forward, not backward, so take every chance you can to see this master pitch. Walker Buehler is another one. David Price and Julio Urias are excellent, as well, so enjoy those pitching matchups.

Perhaps fans of the 2021 Dodgers might be writing the Mets down as an exciting team to come to their stadium, too. Let’s see how the rest of this offseason shakes out.
