Kiss 'Em Goodbye: L.A. Dodgers
The team's problems might linger as long as Frank McCourt does
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the league division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm-system overview.
Today we show the door to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who had to deal with their owner's ongoing divorce saga and couldn't compete for a playoff spot despite featuring two of the best players in baseball.
For the full breakdown from all angles -- Bowden, BP and Szymborski -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
