2011 has been anything but a great year for the Los Angeles Dodgers. There have been a number of injuries to the Dodger infield and pitching staff, the team is currently in last place in the NL West, attendance is down, and the franchise recently went bankrupt.
But rather than harping on all of the negatives that are presently occurring, we will instead discuss the best years in Dodgers' history.
Originally from Brooklyn, the Dodgers played 127 years of baseball before the 2011 season even began. During that time, the boys in blue have had a plethora of great players, big moments and incredible dynasties.
For the younger generation of baseball fans, the Dodgers may seem like a franchise that tends to fill up seats in their stadium, but doesn't always perform on the field. However, from the 1940s through the 1980s, only the New York Yankees could rival the Dodgers in terms of success.
In fact, although the Dodgers haven't been to the World Series in 23 years, they still have the second most pennants (22) of any franchise next to the New York Yankees.
Things aren't looking too sunny these days in Dodger Stadium, but there are still a number of diehard Dodger fans that get butterflies when they think of these ten years.
