New photos of Mookie Betts are enough to get Dodgers fans fired up again before the 2021 season begins.
The Los Angeles Dodgers traded for Mookie Betts last offseason and had him signed to a 12-year extension by July. He was a key piece on last year’s World Series champion team and figures to play a similar role for the next decade.
The Dodgers are now looking to run it back in 2021 and the hype will continue to increase as Opening Day gets closer. The team decided to post some photos of Betts that will remind fans he is back and ready to dominate again this season.
Dodgers: Fans in Los Angeles have to be fired up about Mookie Betts
It must be nice to be a Dodgers fan. The team can spend at will and only got better this offseason by adding Trevor Bauer to the starting rotation. Throw in some Hollywood-style pictures of Betts and the hype train remains blaring forward.
Betts did not disappoint in his first season out west. He posted a 3.6 WAR in the shortened campaign and finished second in National League MVP voting, while also winning another Gold Glove and Silver Slugger. That shows why the organization was so confident to give him such a long-term deal before he played a single game for them.
The Dodgers are a fascinating team because they are World Series contenders who are still in for a fight to win their own division. The San Diego Padres could absolutely win the National League West, making for one of the most thrilling storylines in 2021.
Having Betts in a Dodgers uniform is one key reason why the team remains the favorite over their southern neighbors.
