As one of the most storied franchises in baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ history goes all the way back to their initial days as the Brooklyn Atlantics in 1883. The team eventually became the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1932 named after the Brooklyn people who “dodged” trolleys. As a franchise, the Dodgers have won six World Series titles, 21 NL pennants and 14 division titles. They also made history by being the first major league team to play an African-American player, the iconic, Jackie Robinson. To this day, the Dodgers maintain their winning culture much to the delight of both fans and gamblers.

Los Angeles Dodgers Record
1932 marked the first season the team adopted their current team name. In 1947, the Dodgers made history by debuting Jackie Robinson, the major league’s first African-American player. They would lose their first seven World Series against their bitter rivals, the Yankees but finally defeated them in 1955, earning their first and only championship while in Brooklyn. They relocated to Los Angeles in 1958 and won another World Series title in 1959. Their last championship came in 1988.
Since the NL West’s creation in 1969, the Dodgers have won the title 14 times and finished second 15 times. The Dodgers are the kings of the NL West (although the San Francisco Giants may protest that). In 2015, the Dodgers made it three straight division titles, a franchise record. They won 60.5 percent of their division games and beat up on everyone except against the Giants, who they had a losing record against.
Even with all their injuries, the Dodgers remain one of baseball’s most stacked teams. On offense, they have a stout middle with star players in Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez and their pitching rotation is led by arguably the greatest pitcher of his generation, Clayton Kershaw. They lost fellow ace, Zack Greinke but added Scott Kazmir and Japanese star, Kenta Maeda. There is little reason to think this all-star team can’t beat anyone.
Another division crown is expected and another World Series title, the franchise’s first in nearly 30 years, is a definite possibility. But the Dodgers need to stay sharp and hope their stars deliver and their injuries don’t continue to pile up as their close rivals, the Giants are more than ready to snatch the division away from them.
