Carlos Osorio

If the 2013 Los Angeles Dodgers showed us anything, it's that you don't necessarily need a strong start to a season in order to be successful and make the playoffs. The Dodgers got off to a dismal start, finishing the first half with an even .500 record (a far cry considering they ended May with a 10-17 record).
