The Los Angeles Dodgers are NL West Champs. How good does that sound?
Dodgers fans deserve this, given how rough the last couple of years have been. From the tragic incident surrounding Bryan Stow to the tragedy that was Frank McCourt. Success and a quality ball club have been a long time coming.
Personally, the 2013 season is one giant blur. I am having trouble separating the pre-Yasiel Puig Dodgers from the post-Yasiel Puig Dodgers, and figuring out the difference between 30-42 and 92-70 is next to impossible. You just wonder what actually changed, if anything.
While you cannot go on a historic run like this team did without some help from "A" students, you also cannot end up 30-42 without some "you're going to need to retake this course next year" students as well.
That being said, here are the final grades for your 2013 Dodgers.
Note: I used the opening day roster, in addition to the call ups from the season. The players that appear are grouped by position.
