The Dodgers were predicted to be a 100+ win team this season without Betts before this trade they would have been a 100+ win team in 2021 too. If he walks and they can't find someone as good as Joc they could be less than a 100 win team in 2021. I don't believe that Betts makes them more likely to win the WS since the playoffs are a crapshoot at best he increases them from 23% to 26%. This was already a team built to win now.

The playoffs are too random to build for you are better off building a team that can win the division every year then trying to design the perfect post season team. I think the Dodgers have proven they were built to win the division every year and if anything this trade put that at risk if Betts is just a one and done.
