Re: What hyped team can you see missing the playoffs completely?
I want to say the Dodgers, but it seems like they are doing everything possible to ensure a playoff appearance. They already have a stacked bullpen but are regularly signing great/once great relievers whose market has been hurt by their injuries to minor league deals, and they have EIGHT starters (Kershaw, Greinke, Beckett, Ryu, Billingsley, Lilly Capuano, and Harang) who are starters in any team's rotation.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
