Opening Day did not end the way Dodgers fans would have like it to. In the first game of the year against the rival San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers bat were relatively silent all afternoon, as the club could not muster a single run.

While some fans of the Dodgers are viewing the 2018 campaign as a season of redemption, many others anticipate the year to be a continuation of success. It’s hard to believe, but Los Angeles is now in pursuit of its sixth consecutive NL West division crown, and with each passing season, the club inches ever so closer to a World Championship.

We’ve been waiting for months. We’ve endured the heartbreaking and bitter-sweet days that followed Game 7. We’ve watched as one of the most talented classes of free agents sat quietly, waiting for the kinds of offers they’re worthy of to start rolling in.

For those of you who are frequent visitors to our site, you’ll already know that we’ve always been keen on putting together plenty of posts featuring 25-man roster projections for the Dodgers, especially long before players report to camp. This winter is no different. As it stands now, there are exactly 47 days before pitchers and catchers convene in the clubhouse at Camelback Ranch, and if the player personnel stays relatively the same, we can easily put together a somewhat accurate roster prediction right now—at least for the sake of building a foundation.

Dodgers Thump Padres in Grand Fashion

The Dodgers 2017 season started with a strikeout of Manuel Margot by Clayton Kershaw, courtesy of Public Enemy No. 1, Kershaw’s curve ball.

The rest of the inning did not go quite as smoothly. Wil Myers hit to Corey Seager at short, and Corey committed his first error of the year on the throw to Adrian Gonzalez, advancing Myers to second. He then headed to third on a passed ball by Yasmani Grandal, and scored on a hit by Yangervis Solarte. Kershaw got out of the inning, and things got much better from there.

Ok, so I know that not every game is going to be this good. Of course it can’t be. But there’s not much more of an emphatic way that you can start off a season by scoring 15 runs while blanking a division rival.

Anticipation 

And tomorrow we might not be together I’m no prophet and I don’t know nature’s ways So I’ll try and see into your eyes right now And stay right here ’cause these are the good old days

-Carly Simon  Anticipation 

Opening Day is upon us. The best day of the year. Anything is possible, and dreams are full of a World Series run. Who cares if half your team is on the disabled list? Who cares that your pitching staff has the best one there is, plus who knows who? That your manager is a rookie, and there’s too many brains in the front office? That your payroll is too high for all the uncertainty. And that you’re desperately trying not to remember that the treasure of your ball club is retiring at the end of the year and you have limited time left to listen to him.
