2004 Dodgers

Record:  93-69, .574, 1st place NL West

104 OPS+, 102 ERA+

A vote for the 2004 Dodgers could mean that the ace of the staff will have 18 no-decisions this year, the Dodgers will trade for an Arizona outfielder (Eric Byrnes?) who will hit a walk-off grand slam to win the division, and the extra speedy outfielder, Juan Pierre, will be traded to the eventual World Series winner, getting a key stolen base in the League Championship Series.

1963 Dodgers

Record:  99-63, .611, WS Champs

98 OPS+, 105 ERA+

A vote for the 1963 Dodgers could mean that the Dodgers will get 54 wins out of their three young starters, an outfielder with prodigous power, and a wonderful season out of the closer.  Oh yeah, and the club will also sweep the highly-touted Yankees in the World Series.

When voting, remember you are choosing which team most closely resembles the 2009 Dodgers.  Take into account the regular season record, postseason performance, and strength of offense and pitching. 

Final Four voting will run through Monday night.
