The Dodgers have gone through a rough patch.
After a year of ownership conflicts, a down season and traded stars, some will forget that the Los Angeles Dodgers were the best team in baseball for much of the 2009 season and that their core—Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Andre Ethier and Jonathan Broxton—remains intact and young.
Joe Torre is gone. Manny Ramirez is gone. But the team remains talented.
Ned Colletti spent this past offseason trying to supplement LA's core and return the Dodgers—which finished below .500 last year—to the top of the division. While the team made few major additions, it retained some key pieces and supplemented that talent with bench players.
