Los Angeles Dodgers fans everywhere were so happy when it was announced that Vin Scully would be returning for another season with the team.
The legendary announcer was asked about the upcoming season in Pasadena magazine, and since he’s spent decades with the team, this is some pretty high praise.
“Well, you know, I never predict because I really — I’m like everybody else — I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. I do know that they came off a most exciting season and they came close. I tell people: one pitch, one fractured rib and two games. That’s as close as they came to the World Series. So if they can stay healthy –- and no one can predict that –- but if they stay healthy, they should be very, very competitive once again.”
Injury was definitely a factor last season, but it’s hard to ignore some crucial errors that were made late in the season.
Hopefully, they’ll be able to finish reloading this offseason and get healthy
