2018 Dodgers preview. Projected record, stats and Playoff Predictions

After last years loss in the World Series to the Houston Astros, the Dodgers head into 2018 as a strong contender to compete for the title once again. Led by Dave Roberts, the Dodgers are not only a contender to me, but the favorite to win the World Series.

The Dodgers have an incredible core built around the best pitcher in baseball, Clayton Kershaw and soon to be MVP, Corey Seager. Oh, yeah don’t forget about 2017 NL Rookie of the Year Cody Bellinger and their slugging third basemen Justin Turner. How about you add the best relief pitcher in baseball to that as well in Kenley Jansen. A pretty good team, huh.

Projected NL West Standings:

  1. Dodgers 98-64
  2. Diamondbacks 85-77
  3. Rockies 82-80
  4. Giants 81-81
  5. Padres 70-92
