The Los Angeles Dodgers are no strangers to star hunting, and they have been one of the most active teams during the MLB offseason as they look to bolster a roster that flamed out in the NLDS against the San Diego Padres.

The Dodgers are sorely lacking in starting pitching after they suffered numerous injuries to their rotation plus saw Julio Urias get placed on administrative leave.

Los Angeles’ offense struggled mightily in the postseason, a common refrain for the 2020 World Series Champions.

Despite a world-class lineup featuring Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman, the Dodgers found themselves in a position where they could use some more firepower.

Unsurprisingly, Los Angeles found themselves in the middle of the most-anticipated free agency period in league history as Shohei Ohtani pondered his choices.

The former Los Angeles Angels superstar didn’t let his intentions be known up until the last minute when he announced he was singing with the Dodgers and fans understandably were hyped via Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Ohtani is reportedly signing a historic 10-year, $700 million contract to join the Dodgers and gives them perhaps the best top-of-the-order in the sport.

Although Ohtani will be unable to pitch during the 2024 MLB season due to an elbow injury, he will still be able to hit which should solve a lot of L.A.’s woes at the plate.

For weeks, media and fans alike had no idea where the two-time AL MVP would end up though the frenzy has finally been settled.

Ohtani’s move to the Dodgers will have massive ramifications for years to come and their fans have every right to be excited.
