    For the most part, no surprises.

    Only comments I have is 1) Good for McKinstry, and 2) Alexander is the weak link in that pen.

    Kind of nice when the roster discussion comes down to the last position player and the last pitcher on the roster.

    Basically the feeling is that players are going to breakdown. It happens a lot with rookies since their bodies aren't generally built for the riggers of 162 game season. Now everyone is coming off of a shortened season where pitchers had DH's and travel was immensely decreased, there is a strong chance that some guys will break down and there will be a number of young guys that just didn't get the PT last year where there could be less fill-ins to choose from. I am expecting the Dodgers to have A LOT of IL stints this season and I would guess they're going to be mostly phantom stints.

    For me, I'm just worried about players like Seager and Turner (who have had injury problems in the past), Pollock (do we really have to mention it), and Kershaw (who's had back issues). Those younger players that got their first taste of the big leagues in a shortened year may still need to get used to a very long season.

    But I'm not THAT worried. If anything, we still have alot of resources to dive into if the injury bug hits.
