The second most wins in all of baseball is a feel-good story. However, the Los Angeles Dodgers, for all their acquisitions and big paydays, have to be labeled a disappointment. The reason is a single world title from a team that was often dubbed the best in baseball. The new season begins with even larger expectations. LA has as strong an offensive lineup as any team in baseball save the Yankees. The Dodgers acquired a superstar to improve their defense and hit leadoff. One of the brightest young stars in baseball will fall into the second spot and man second base.

The order finishes with punch all the way through the seventh hitter. Ironically, the seventh batter projected in this year's Dodger batting order may be the most intriguing. Los Angeles will have a healthy ace back at the top of the rotation, plus they hauled in another lefthander with ace-type potential. In the middle of these two veterans is possibly the best young pitcher in baseball. LA will be tracking towards 100 wins again. The question may only be how long it will take them to get there. The talent is there, but will the Dodgers be able finally to realize their potential?
