GLENDALE, AZ – MARCH 01: Matt Kemp /

The Dodgers entered spring with a position battle on their hands. The regular season is quickly approaching, and they still have not made a decision yet. Here are some pros and cons for every competitor.

Spring training is flying by, and still, it seems like there is no real front-runner for the job wide open this spring. Left field was essentially the only question mark entering spring, and still, no answer has been found.

The Dodgers could go in many different ways here, and for each one, they would have a valid reason for doing so. The problem for the Dodgers isn’t that they don’t have a legitimate left fielder, the problem is that they have too many legitimate options for one job.

Sometimes having too much of a good thing can cause problems. This is a good problem to have, but it still is a very tough decision for management to make. The variety of their options is the most intriguing to me.

They could go with a 12-year veteran or a rookie, and both would have a legitimate case. The Dodgers organization is just so deep and exciting. The Dodgers have an embarrassment of riches, and now they have to figure out how to deal with it.
