Wait, what? Yes, surprisingly, the Dodgers were able to convince Lopes to come back and be a coach. Many fans had hoped for Lopes to take over the first base spot, but expected his price to be too great for the Dodgers to be able to afford. All fans know of Lopes' success in LA as a olayer and it seems that he is going to come back. The tweet by Dylan Hernandez
I'm told Davey Lopes is close to joining the #Dodgers' coaching staff.
does not say his role, but it has been expected that he'd become the first base coach, if he joined the Dodgers. He was part of a successful Philly running game, which was something the Dodgers lacked last season.
*NOTE* If this has been covered, sorry. I haven't been home much today and haven;t looked at the threads.
