Just over one year ago, Major League Baseball and the Los Angeles Dodgers were under an array of scrutiny as the opening day beating of Giants fan Brian Stow started the season off on a very bad note. To make matters worse, pervious owner and Boston native Frank McCourt continued to run the franchise in turmoil, leading the team to a mediocre overall record of (82-79). However, with a fresh start in 2012, the Dodgers things have redefined their identity quickly. In 2012 new ownership group Guggenheim Baseball Management and former NBA legend Magic Johnson, have taken the team from a state of embarrassment to praise, as the Dodgers boast the best home record in the National League at (15-3) through May 14th. Overall the Dodgers sit atop the NL West by 6 games with a record of (23-11). Led by franchise outfielders Matt Kemp (.359-12-28) and Andre Either (.302-7-32) starting pitchers Clayton Kershaw/ newly acquired Chris Capuano things have turned around quickly at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers could also have the chance to improve their rotation with a few young arms as minor league prospects Zach Lee, Chris Withrow, and Allen Webster could make debuts sooner than later.
