QUICK TAKE: The Dodgers integrated lots of young talent while making the playoffs a year ago. Look for them to do more of the same in 2007.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: C Russell Martin. He received only one rookie of the year vote in 2006, but don’t be shocked if he receives stronger support for the MVP award this season. He’s a standout offensive and defensively, and he’s already a team leader at age 24.
(Thanks to DT poster Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh for the tip. Guess that's why DT is kicking ass in that poll.)
