Moreover, one of the key marks for both teams has been Andrew Friedman. In fact, he was the Director of Baseball Ops and General Manager for the Rays; and since 2014, he has been the President of the Dodgers Baseball Ops.
Los Angeles Dodgers
For the 3rd time in 4 years, the Dodgers are returning to the big stage. With the team winning all of their series early on; this year had many different types of challenges.
Since many players opted out before the season began, to time away from their families; this year was entirely different for sports professionals. To read about the players that opted out; be sure to visit our Professional Sports Players Opting Out post. Even with David Price opting out before the season started; the Dodgers have a chance to win it all.
