San Diego Padres
The Padres are a mess. I should just stop there, but for the sake of this post I’ll go in more depth. They were tied for the worst record in the National League last year and are a team without a vision.
And they are just two years removed from putting all of their eggs in a win now basket, in which they acquired James Shields, Matt Kemp, Wil Myers, Justin Upton and more.
The Padres project to be a bad team again this year, they bring to the hill for Opening Day the 29 year old RHP Chacin who had a 2016 that was akin to a fourth or fifth starter on most teams.
Chacin pitched for both the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Angels last year, in a season that produced a cumulative 4.81 ERA in just 114 innings pitched.
They also employ a lineup that will be missing some pop this year as well; with Myers being the only regular player of note. The team will have a mixture of journeymen, young prospects with promise and career minor leaguers throughout their lineup in 2017.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers enter the season coming off four straight postseason appearances, but have failed to make the World Series during that time, despite the best pitcher in baseball and the highest payroll in baseball.
They look to end that drought this season, bringing back much of the same players, in a team that lost in six games in the NLCS to the eventual World Series Champion Chicago Cubs.
They should get their season off on a strong note behind the best pitcher in baseball over the last several years, Clayton Kershaw.
Over the past six seasons, Kershaw has won three Cy Young awards and finished in the top three in all of the years, save for an injury plagued 2016.
Also in that six year span, Kershaw has never had a season’s ERA above 2.53 and has averaged over 206 innings pitched per season over the last eight.
