Hi, and welcome to another edition of Dodgers Dugout. My name is Houston Mitchell, and congratulations to the Denver Broncos for winning Game 1 of the NFL Championship Series. They play a best-of-seven like baseball too, don’t they?
Comparing the teams
Over the next few newsletters, I will take a look at all five NL West teams, comparing them in the infield, outfield, bench, rotation and bullpen. Every team will be ranked at each position, so we can get a better idea of where the Dodgers stand as they try to win their first World Series since the Reagan administration.
