Dodgers will try to ‘not be stupid’ with moves

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 15 games ahead of their nearest NL West foe and have essentially wrapped up the division race by the end of July, but there’s an acceptance that there’s still work to be done on the roster. That work just has to make sense.

The Dodgers’ bullpen, in particular, is seen as a threat to their World Series aspirations. Team president Andrew Friedman admitted that he feels the pressure to improve the team, but there’s one important thing he must abide by: he can’t be stupid.

The Dodgers have so much talent at the big league level and one of the sport’s better farm systems, so in theory, they should have all the weapons to ensure they get over the top after falling short in the World Series for two straight years. Kenley Jansen may not want to hear it, but that probably means bullpen improvements are a must. The key is finding talent without giving up something they’ll regret too much, and that’s the fine line Friedman is walking.
