If there was one team that could be described as a “landmark” and “model” which one would it be? Well, MLB is filled with extremely potent teams whose efficiency can be measured on various criteria. While comparing management, farm system, performance, etc., one team in particular has caught the attention of reporters.

Ken Rosenthal, a senior sports writer, has a lot to share about his opinion on which team is best run. Yes, there are other teams that are perhaps equally well-managed. Yes, they have won only one World Series since 1988, but they are strong. Strong enough to have the New York Mets’ Steven Cohen talk about emulating it. 

Here’s Why The Los Angeles Dodgers Are A Good Choice

As per a tweet by @FoulTerritoryTV, Ken chose the Los Angeles Dodgers over other teams. While explaining his choice, he sounded quite convinced about the Blue Crew’s abilities, considering the following factors. First, they’ve “performed remarkably.. under Dave Rogers regime”, that they are “in the playoffs virtually every year”. And that they have “one of the best farm systems”. With that, the best-run would be the Dodgers, as they don’t fail to put up a competitive, winning team every season! 

Some have pointed out that certainly they have more money than the others, but they do know how to put it to use well. But the fact that they have made it to the postseason regularly for over a decade now shows that they are consistent. Even the fans of the team have quite a lot to look forward to every season. That said, it is to note that the Dodgers won 100 games and lost 65 games in their 2023 run (including the postseason). They played their final game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but lost to them in the NL Divisional Series.

It is also to note that the boys in blue have won seven World Series titles and 24 NL pennants so far. With all these evident observations, Ken’s opinion on the Dodgers’ superiority might be valid. Along with addressing the ‘best-run’ team in MLB, he also gave his opinion on the raging topic of Shohei Ohtani‘s free agency in conjunction to his recent unanimous MVP win.

Shohei Ohtani’s Absence From Media

Speaking of the BBWAA MVP award announcement, the unanimous MVP failed to speak to the media after receiving his award. He addressed the potential “technical difficulties” that apparently led to the cancelled conference call with the winner himself. When the routine after each award is a mandatory conference call with the writers, the fact that the call didn’t happen was out of the blue.

There were speculations that the talk with the writers could have been denied due to his cliff-hanger of a free agency. But since what the norm was didn’t happen, Ken named the folks behind this the “dork of the week”. Well, be it the Los Angeles Dodgers’ smooth operations or the dork behind the scenes, the ‘rant’ did address the burning questions in the MLB world.
