Dugout Digest – welcome to Dodgers Day

Today, we'll be hitting the halfway mark in our season preview series, turning our focus to the 2013 NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers had a terrible first half in 2013 that nearly cost manager Don Mattingly his job, but they turned on the jets in the second half and handily won the NL West. Los Angeles didn't make much of a splash in the free agent market this winter, but they also didn't lose anyone of significance and are primed for another deep playoff run.

Yesterday on TOC was Diamondbacks Day, and here's your recap.
