Another team, another star is likely to leave the city. Unlike the Red Sox and Braves, the Dodgers showed the least interest in bringing Trea Turner back to Chavez Ravine. There are some who believe that chemistry the acquisition of that transaction term Turner – not to be confused with Turner, the third has been in LA since 2014 – built with the likes of Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman will keep him in SoCalbut it seems more likely that Turner will want to go back to the East, where he grew up.
Trea Turner has been heavily linked to the Yankees, and if the Yankees can’t retain Aaron Judge, former National would be a nice second option. While two of the Yankees’ top prospects are natural shortfalls (Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza), Turner also has an extensive history in the offline arena, which should completely fill in the gaping hole. Judge will leave.
This is not about Trea Turner though. Without him in L.ONE., The Dodgers could turn their focus to Correa, who was were their arch-enemies. Correa never had a great relationship with the Dodgers, you know, for the whole “trick them out of the World Series title,” but Correa and his family threw shade at the Astros on their way out of the season. before, selling game equipment and other memorabilia go in troves. Why would he sell the equipment if he was already paid a large sum of money? Maybe he doesn’t like the Astros, and as the saying goes, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Everyone knows Dodgers have unlimited money and love to make a lot of money in free agency work. If Correa wants both a big market and the chance to play for a World Series title, no team can offer both of those categories like the Dodgers. Plus, they’ll probably give him the most money with a landslide.
