And We’re Off! Dodgers’ 2011 Spring Training is Open for Business

Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the year: the start of Spring Training!  Sure the Dodgers have more question marks than we would like and more than a few glaring holes (left field, a lack of power, a questionable closer, and a suspicious defense to name a few), but at the same time, there’s a lot to look forward to with expected monster years for Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp, as well as one of the best starting rotations in the major leagues.

I personally love the unexpected stories of heart and grit that come out of Spring Training…there’s always one feel good story in camp each year and I’m eager to see whixh left-for-dead vet or up and coming youngster seizes the opportunity in front of them (the trendy media pick these days seems to be outfielder Chris Gwynn).  Can’t wait to see who it is this year.
