Dodgers News: League May Get Creative to Play As Many Games As Possible

The Dodgers and their fanbase are itching for some baseball. Tomorrow would have been Opening Day in Los Angeles. Fans would have started flocking to the gates at Chavez Ravine less than 24 hours from now, and baseball would have been back. But the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed literally everything back, and now we all […] More

Obviously a major iceberg was avoided by the SS Dodger a week or so ago when the trade with the Los Angeles Angels fell through. Of course I say that because without that trade, starting pitcher Ross Stripling remains a Los Angeles Dodger.

Without question, a Friend of the Show always, and as Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman has said; Stripling is just a guy who helps the team win ballgames. Recently, Stripling talked about the whole process and his happiness to remain with the Dodgers.

First off, Striping talks about what it’s like to see your name fly across twitter confirmed in a trade.

“You know it was my first time going through anything like that. I’ve been with the Dodgers for eight years and you see stuff like in the past on twitter, slight trade rumors. But for the first time it was a ‘Ross Stripling to the Angels confirmed’. I hadn’t heard anything but I guess it’s confirmed. Then it was just kind of five days of nothing, and Andrew Friedman was keeping me up to date as best he could. Obviously I don’t even know if he even knew what was going on with the Boston and Minnesota side of things.”

Most importantly, Stripling sounds happy to still be with the guys he’s grown up playing with. Furthermore, he’s still happy to be one of us!

“It was a whirlwind for me, my wife and my family, but I am still happy to be here in Dodger blue.”

Hopefully Stripling locks down a rotation spot, and can be a stabilizing force in the back end of the Dodgers rotation in 2020. I have always had this feeling that he has this one ‘jump off the page’ type year in him, and I don’t think we have seen it yet. Even if he was an All-Star back in 2018.
