Spring Training is almost here!
One Dodger we know is ready to go is center fielder Joc Pederson, and he took to instagram to show his excitement.
Spring Training will hopefully provide the answers to many questions fans and analyst have about the Los Angeles Dodgers. Most players are returning from injury and with this being Dave Roberts first year he will have his hands full. Fortunately for Roberts, owner Magic Johnson isn’t worried.
“I think [Roberts] can relate to the players and motivate them … we wanted the right manager to be able to put [our players] in a position to win,” Johnson said in an interview with ESPN.
Johnson also believes the Dodgers have what it takes to win the World Series if right fielder Yasiel Puig returns to true form and comes up big for L.A. in the postseason.
DodgersNation asked fans on twitter how many moves would it take the Dodgers to win it all and 41 percent of the votes say more than 3 moves will get the team there.

Now I hope the 41 percent is wrong and the Dodgers have what it takes to pull it off in 2016, now while Johnson has the Dodgers winning it all, so far he’s not far off. The Washington Post picked the Dodgers to win the NL West yet again citing their conclusion to 5 simple words: Financial Muscle and Clayton Kershaw.
Lets hope those East Coast guys are right!
It has been said some of the toughest questions have the easiest answers. For example, who has the second-best farm system in the MLB? Well the Dodgers of course, and the Oklahoma City Dodgers took to twitter to congratulate the team.
