As Opening Day approaches, the Los Angeles Dodgers have a lot to be excited about. Manny Ramirez and Rafael Furcal are back. Orlando Hudson will patrol second. Russell Martin, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and James Loney are all a year older. Last year's pitching staff had the best ERA in the National League.
L.A.'s pitching staff will lean heavily on its young arms in the absence of Derek Lowe.
