    Hopefully Muncy carries this momentum into the start of the season.

    The hitters look pretty damn good, the lineup is gonna be great. Mckinstry is the last bench bat which is nice.
    Pitching is gonna be interesting, I think they’ll rely heavily on bullpen to start, especially with Price/May/Santana probably in there to all provide length

    excited for the season. Gonna be a long one obviously and it’s gonna take patience but every day should bring something exciting. Let’s go

    No Angel car flags so far in Anaslime. That's always nice to (not) see.

    Dustin May is the 5th starter, price and gonsolin to the bullpen. That’s just for now and I’m sure it’ll all be super flexible and what not.

    My overriding sentiment going into this season is conflicted. On one hand, it's refreshing to be starting a year where we're not at risk of adding another notch on the drought streak, and that makes it all more enjoyable. But on the other hand, with virtually every analyst ranking the Dodgers at the top of their lists of WS favorites (and in most cases, by a lot), there's pressure to repeat. A team hasn't won back-to-back in 20 years, so it's a tough task, but this team definitely has the tools to accomplish that.

    So SI have the Dodgers losing to the Braves in the NL.

    Of course, they have the Yankees going to the WS. They predict a Braves win.

    I hope SI is as accurate as they are picking college football championships.

    The Braves predictions have been all over the map this year. Like 1-5 finishes in the division. There are a lot of questions on how their rotation is going to hold up over a 162 game season and the division is going to be really interesting. The East really is a toss up right now.

    This season could be a fucking mess. There is a lot of worry that pitchers are going to fall apart and we are going to have a litany of injuries which is why there are a lot of people that are really pissed about not having the UDH this season. If the injury issues happen, we are in better shape than anyone else. This season is going to be a wild ride and I am just hoping that we don't walk away with some career altering injuries to any of our stars/rising stars.

    What’s the reason people are worried? Because they only had 60 games last year?

    Righty pitchers are gonna be destroyed by us.

    All we need Chris Taylor and AJ pollock to do this year is hit lefties pretty good, which they typically do

    One of the coolest developments of the spring that hopefully carries over into the season is that Dustin May has a curveball and is using an elevated 4 seam fastball. Ooooooooooh yeah
