Without question, I feel disappointed and hollow about the Los Angeles Dodgers’ winter efforts. Truly, it comes down to I feel that the Dodgers are a player or two away from greatness. You hear that said a lot of times in sports – but I can’t ever remember a time that it applies to an organization and it’s core more than it does the 2020 Dodgers – in my mind.
Thankfully, MLB.com’s Mike Petriello writes about why the Dodgers weren’t more active in the off-season. Furthermore, it’s an important read for people like me; and I’m sure I’m not alone. Sometimes an opposing viewpoint can help make sense of things if you can be asked to look at it differently.
The Dodgers haven’t really done anything this winter, and fans are understandably frustrated.
What’s the plan, and how much does the timing of it matter?

Notably, Petriello points out something said by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Indeed, quotes like this one along with Roberts’ saying he was leading the recruiting efforts of elite players like Anthony Rendon could have been misleading.
