LA-Dodgers-logo

The Dodgers may only be 14 - 12, but they are just 1 game behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West.  They are still the co-favorites to win the World Series.  Considering they  have seen one start from Clayton Kershaw, and now he is on his way back to joining the team, I would say this team is in the drivers seat.  Los Angeles made it to the NLCS last year, severely upgraded their Bullpen - and still possess a ridiculous amount of talent in the OF - and at Starting Pitching.  You have to think they will be able to win this Division.  With Milwaukee staking themselves to a big lead over St. Louis at least right now - before they have run into injuries, and with the Braves and Nats both having guys on the mend, those Division may be more in the air.  Once the playoffs would set in, I would take the LAD Pitching Staff and Lineup combined over any other team.  Thus this is why we have ranked them so high so far in our weekly 1 - 30 list.  Detroit has a lot of similarities.  These two teams also have an easier path to to ply through, with  CWS/CLE and MIN in the AL Central, and ARI/SD both a little shaky to begin the 2014 campaign.  Teams that the Division favorites play 19 times each.
