Coming into the year, the Dodgers look to be the clear front-runners to capture their fifth consecutive NL West title. That’s not to take away from the other four division rivals, as each team has loads of individual talent. But there’s a reason the Dodgers have won four consecutive NL West championships.
The fun that comes with watching games every year, is you don’t know what will happen. A certain third baseman in Colorado may make a bare-handed play. It’s also possible that a first baseman over in Arizona hits a 430-foot homer. Whoever it may be, this division is stacked with perennial all-stars and that makes the division fun to follow.
