Sport Report: Dodgers likely to pursue Francisco Lindor trade
Did MLB abandon the juiced baseballs for dead balls in the postseason?
From juiced to dead.
The Los Angeles Dodgers suffered a frustrating NLDS exit in 2019, and they look likely to make some aggressive moves in the offseason to try to prevent that from happening again.
According to, the Dodgers are likely to pursue a trade for Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor this offseason. If such a deal did happen, incumbent shortstop Corey Seager could become a trade candidate or shift to third base.
The Dodgers are said to be more open to major changes this offseason after making more minor changes in previous offseasons. The team’s playoff failure is likely a motivating factor behind that line of thinking.
Japan trade minister resigns over donation scandal
Japan's new trade minister has submitted his resignation after being accused of violating election law by offering voters money and gifts, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Friday. The sums involved, while small, would constitute a violation of Japan's public office election law.Isshu Sugawara had been in the hot seat after a magazine reported he was suspected of paying 20,000 yen ($185) to a bereaved family in his constituency.
Lindor hit .284 with 32 home runs last season and is a four-time All-Star. He’s also an immensely popular and charismatic player.
The shortstop, who turns 26 in November, would become a free agent after the 2021 season. The Indians have essentially confirmed that, meaning he could become a trade candidate. It remains to be seen whether they decide to try to hang on to him for one more season and dealing him before his contract year.
