|New Dodger and Major Leaguer, South Korean|
LHP Ryu Hyun-Jin
The four above mentioned players were all shipped to Los Angeles from an equally formidable looking Boston Red Sox team who were picked by many (myself included) to win a ring in 2012. Frustration with management and a general lack of team chemistry were largely to blame for Boston's inadequacy in 2012 and subsequent dispersal of major talent. The Dodgers new ownership, the Magic Johnson Group, are hoping to turn their $2B investment in to a winning dynamic using many of the same discarded pieces Boston couldn't cohesively mesh. There is with out any doubt that the Dodgers are officially contenders, but don't mark them down as surefire favorites yet.
