Because the title might be a little misleading today’s post will be about the LA Dodgers not the LA Angels. I just want to mention a possible move the Dodgers will probably be making, as soon as this weekend too. Adrain Gonzalez is due to come off the DL soon and I know he might even start and I’m here to say if it ain’t broke, that’s what I mean in the title. Just saying this will most likely be a short post, don’t have a lot to say on the subject just want to throw in my two cents.
Like I said Adrian Gonzalez, the starting first baseman for the first few weeks of the season, is due to return soon and there’s talk that the Dodgers are thinking about benching one of their current starters for him. The only reason this is possible is Cody Bellinger, getting majority of time at first base, can also play the outfield. The main target for this benching speculation is center fielder Joc Perderson, because Bellinger can fill in at center. I’m just going to say that is a very dumb idea, the Dodgers are on pace to win 115-116 games this year why would you rock the boat now? Yeah I know Agon is a consistent player and a gold glove first baseman but the dude is only hitting .250 with only one homer, yes one homer. Cody Bellinger has the most homers on the team by a lot and is a great first baseman so again why rock the boat? So you want to make a guy with 34 homers switch to a different position so a guy with 1 homer can play while you’re in the midst of a possible historic season? Don’t do it LA!
