3 Teams to follow for the next MLB season

MLB is currently at its offseason and the teams are establishing their strategy for next year’s season. The league is always thrilling to follow and the teams give great show to the public each and every year. There are always teams that are far more talented than the others. They are the favorites to win the world series and offer the greatest performance. Today, we’re going to talk about 3 teams that are considered to most likely win the next season of MLB. 

First, the Dodgers, the last champions:

The Dodgers of Los Angeles is among the 3 most interesting teams of next year season since they’ve just won it all. Their victory this year isn’t a surprise at all. In fact, everyone expected them to make it to the world series last round and win it all. In this year’s MLB season, they’ve always been considered as favorites in each and every game. They’ve won the regular season with ease and entered the postseason with great confidence. 

Experts are predicting the same turn of events for the Dodgers in 2021. No one can go against that since the team will practically be the same. The Dodgers will maintain the players and game style that ensured them the title this year. Only Justin Turner may leave if he decides so because he’s a free agent now. 

The main players are still in contract and will perform as soon as the season begins. The Dodgers didn’t also suffer from bad injuries this season. They will be in great shape when 2021 season begins. Given all of that, there’s nothing that would indicate that their level of play will regress. It’s most likely that they’ll repeat the marvelous season that they had this year and have a deep playoff run. What we don’t know is if there will be a team who will be able to stop them. Betway Sports make them 4/1 to retain their World Series trophy.

Tampa Bay Rays, dangerous If They Manage Their Problems Well 

Whom to consider as the second serious contender if not the runner up of the last World Champions Series. Remember, the Rays have managed to restrain the all mighty Dodgers in the finals. 

They certainly had a great team the core of which will be maintained for the next season. The only problem with the Rays is their current struggle with money. They would make a dangerous team if they succeed in maintaining their main players with them.

With their problem, they must find a way to ensure those players stay and stay  motivated. Players like Kevin Kiermaier dans Blake Snell are still owed a big amount of money. Those key elements could manifest their anger and do things that would get in the way of success. In short, the Rays are a very serious team whose future success depends only on how the organization will solve their lack of money. 

Can the Yankees make their return in the highest level? 

The Yankees cannot be separated with Baseball and they’re already in the title discussion every year. They certainly have the talents for since they count 7 of the best baseball players in their team. They don’t have to put that much effort in trades. All they have to do is to get their team to perform like  it should. 

Training and organizations are the key of their potential good season in 2021. With this long offseason, they certainly have enough time to reorganize everything. The Yankees might have deceived for several years now, but it would be a mistake to underestimate them for the next season.
