Had you told me on that day that we wouldn’t see him again for the remainder of the season, I wouldn’t...

Dodgers' offense is clicking

Clayton Kershaw and Brian Wilson might be on the disabled list because of the Dodgers' shortened spring training before they opened the season in Australia, but the team's hitters appear to be completely unaffected.
