The Los Angeles Dodgers were seeking experienced veterans to put them over the top ahead of this fall. Lucky for them, they were able to do so through acquiring one of New York’s most clutch hitters.
The full deal will be: Curtis Granderson and cash to the Dodgers for a player to be named later or cash in return. #Mets

Los Angeles is on pace to beat the all-time record for wins in a single season. After acquiring Yu Darvish, Tony Cingrani, and Tony Watson to their pitching staff ahead of the deadline, they have finally added some veteran leadership to their offense.
Less than two months ago, I argued that Granderson in Los Angeles makes sense for both sides, and just how seamless his transition to their outfield would be.
The Dodgers have advanced to the NLCS in two of the past five years. Hopefully, Granderson can capture his first World Series Title with a team that hasn’t won it all in 29 years.
