In the closest thing to a playoff atmosphere Dodger Stadium has seen in recent years, the Dodgers took two out of three from their traditional rivals the New York Yankees this weekend.The win bodes well for the Dodgers, who are looking to return to the playoffs for the first time since 1996. Now, we Angelenos shouldn't get ahead of ourselves. L.A.'s been in first place in June a number of times in recent years. But this season it feels as if the Dodgers have the most complete team in the National League West.

Armed with the best bullpen in baseball, the Azul should be considered the division front-runners as long as the offense continues to succeed. With the trade deadline approaching, LAist feels the Dodgers would benefit from acquiring an additional bat to potentially replace Juan Encarnacion in the lineup.
