Season Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers

+

It’s no mystery that the Frank McCourt debacle played a heavy role in how the Los Angeles Dodgers finished (82-79) last year. Sure they had a winning record, but they were capable of so much more. Manager Don Mattingly has done a great job, despite the outside influences, in crafting a winning ballclub. He has helped center fielder Matt Kemp find his game again and did he ever. Kemp hit .324/.399/.586 with 39 home runs, 126 RBI and 40 stolen bases, but was absolutely robbed of a MVP trophy despite nearly winning the vaunted Triple Crown.

"I always wanted a little brother that I could play ball with, but Carlton just isn't able to do that. Most of the time he's too nervous to just hang out with me alone. My family didn't know about the treatments available to help him play ball or just 'hang out'. He's 14 now…I don't want another family to have to feel that void of a family member who's present."
