The Dodgers brought back 14 of the 16 players who batted from their World Series-winning team, including re-signing Justin Turner, the beloved third baseman and local product. They have the entire starting rotation back, plus David Price, who opted out last year, and they added the reigning Cy Young Award winner in Trevor Bauer.
The payroll, for competitive balance tax purposes, is roughly $255 million, the highest in the sport. Most projection systems, which by design are conservative, even to a fault, see the Dodgers as a team destined for triple-digit wins. So it’s no surprise that Dodgers fans are pretty pleased at the moment.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a majority of Dodgers fans don’t think the team needs to add anyone to the roster before the season starts.
When asked what specifically could be improved, 51 percent of fans said nothing at all, while 24 percent said the Dodgers could add pitching and 22 percent would prefer hitting.
Around the league, two-thirds of fans believe their team needs to add a player with just over half of MLB fans wanting their team to add a pitcher.
