The Dodgers are 36-25 and currently sit tied for second place in the NL West after the one-third mark of the season. Although the Dodgers have not had complete control of the division for the greater part of the season, we can still safely assume this team will be in the postseason come playoff time.

The fact of the matter is this team is too talented, and the owners are too determined on bringing a World Series to Los Angeles to not let that happen. Even without leading the division, LA is still in the lead for one of the two Wild Card spots in the NL. But the beautiful thing about baseball is that it’s not the way you start the season, but how you finish. So there’s plenty of time for the Dodgers to take control of the division and make a playoff push.

So I thought the one-third mark of the season would be a good time to check in on the team and set the pitching staff Dave Roberts could roll out to set up a deep playoff run. Keep in mind I am using players soley on current Dodger roster. Let’s get to it.
