    Both team will be badass. If i had to choose one i'd say dodgers by a hair.

    i will take the angels chances now with mike scioscia's way of running the club & the clubhouse....

    on paper, the angels will be better as well as soon as they add another SP

    just don't want people to think I'm biased towards the dodgers because ths is how I really feel..

    Pitching
    Doders have a great rotation, one of the best in baseball. Their bullpen is really good as well and really shined last year towards the end of the year. Bringing back brandon league was a great move, I still hope they bring in a few solid arms to the bullpen but i think they are solid here.

    Angels have a pretty good #1 and a good #2 starter but that's about it the rest are ok starting pitchers. I thought the joe blanton signing was a head scratcher.. I think he definitely got paid for what he will/wont bring to the mound.. I see him as a #5.. Hopefully the angels go after a few starters (send a package over for R.A Dickey?) in the next couple days because they need it. Their bullpen also needs help.. I think hanrahan should be in LA somewhere (I'd like it to be the dodgers ) but it would be good for the angels to make a run at him as well, send a couple prospects over and get er done..

    Hitting
    Dodgers have a better lineup then people are giving credit for BUT I will admit they have a few question marks.. Andre ethier, great against righties but time for a potty break against lefties cuz everyone knows nothings gonna happen... Matt kemp, coming off a serious shoulder injury, the question is will he be able to get back to the production that was seen in 2011 and 1st half of 2012 before the injury happened? who knows... Carl crawford, another big question mark.. Where has this guy been the last few years? One of the best in baseball fell pretty fast.. No idea how he will be next year but he will be an every day starter.. And adrien gonzalez.. First at bat i had flash backs of mannywood, after that i had flashbacks of andruw jones.. Which adrien will be in blue next year? Time will tell..

    Angels.. 2-4 is trout pujols hamilton... need i say more??? I kinda expect hamilton to lead both leagues in RBIs next year.. Losing torri hunter kinda sucked, but ya picked up the best hitter in free agency and possibly the best free agent this year. They're other staters are solid hitters as well, this is a great lineup that can hit the ball and has speed, hitting for average, and power. Great mix of hitters in there.

    Overall evaluation

    As I said, angels have better hitting although I wouldd say the potential is there for the dodgers, they have question marks with their hitting.. Angels 2-4 is the best in baseball.. no doubt.. that is just nasty.. I woulod hate to be a pitcher and see mike trout get up to bat and know that pujols and hamilton were right after him..wow.. Dodgers starting pitching is great, I'm not gonna say it's the best in baseball, but it is top 5 for sure. 2 cy youngs at the front with a very solid josh becket and billingsly following him. (yes, billingsley is injury prone, but last year second half he was one of the better pitchers in the league before he went down.. look up his stats.. didnt have much run support but man he turned a 180 after the all star break) The #5 will be Ryu.. Yes, he is a rather large investment (he's fat..) but he was lights out in korea.. I hope that transitions to the MLB nicely. I would say at first he's gonna struggle but i see him being a solid #5 next year. I would give the dodgers a slight edge over the angels because the dodgers have better pitching and although they have questions with their hitting, the potential is definitely there for them to be more tthen just good.

    No.
    Amen!!

    No one realizes just how bad Santana and Haren were for large stretches last year...

    I think Angels are better, I Like Weaver better than any dodger pitcher, grienke is overrated, kershaw is good, he about even to weaver. beckett is washed up, if Cj wilson steps it up, and play how hes getting paid. i like angels pitchers better, plus if angels get dickey, that will clitch it for me, both close. but trout is future of baseball, pujols and hamilton are top5 best hitters in the game, trumbo is a beast. they both are stacked, i just like angels better

    I like Josh Hamilton and Pujols, better than Kemp, And Im a huge Kemp fan! i think dodgers got jose baustista or prince fielder, at that calliber, id side with dodgers, but now i really like angels
