Consider this scenario: your opening day starter starts only one game then goes on the disabled list; your slugger will be suspended for 50 games; your rookie starter who showed promise has no idea where to find the strike zone; two of your bullpen pitchers are on the disabled list; you can't etch the names of your fourth and fifth starters.
Combine this with Rafael Furcal, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and Russell Martin swinging cold bats, and you have baseball's best team: the Los Angeles Dodgers.
While the Dodgers are facing some adversity especially in their pitching, the rest of team not only shows up but lifts the team to victories.
