The Los Angeles Dodgers enter the season with one of baseball’s most talented teams on paper and have a great shot to win the World Series. Again.
It’s the same old story, isn’t it?
In 2016, the Dodgers won between 91 and 94 games and took the NL West for the fourth straight season. And for the fourth straight year, they bowed out of the playoffs before the World Series.
The Dodgers haven’t won the NL pennant since 1988. Twenty-four of the other 29 MLB teams have won a pennant since the Dodgers last did. That’s remarkable under the circumstances.
