Happy New Year’s Eve. If you’ve come here for serious baseball news today, well, I feel bad for ya son. But at least we have stuff like Roy Halladay dressing up like Jamie Moyer for a 1980s-themed costume party:
I’m guessing there will be baseball news in 2014. Until then, I will probably switch from mimosas to straight champagne around 2pm, so stay tuned.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
