The L.A. Dodgers’ World Series defeat last year provided a lot of hope for a comeback this season.
Not to pour salt in the wound, but the Dodgers aren’t doing so well. As reported by ESPN, with Corey Seager out for the season, and Clayton Kershaw with a case of biceps tendinitis, the Dodgers’ future looks a little bleak. And FanGraphs recently projected that the team has a 36.7 percent chance of winning. At the start of the season, that number was closer to 85 percent.
On the flip side, the Anaheim Angels are looking pretty good. Shohei Ohtani is becoming a name, even non-baseball fans recognize. The “Japanese Babe Ruth” has been living up to the hype.
