The Dodgers won 86 games while finishing a disappointing second to the eventual World Champion Giants in the NL West, but that was still a four-win improvement over 2011, and given the massive payroll increase over the past few months, big things are expected from this team in 2013. The July trade deadline saw the club acquire SS/3B Hanley Ramirez and eventual closer Brandon League. August brought the additions of Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, the injured Carl Crawford (elbow), and utilityman Nick Punto. That wasn't enough to put the club over the top, but the spending spree continued this winter in the forms of Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, and J.P. Howell. Needless to say, anything short of a deep playoff run will be a massive disappointment for the new ownership and its reinvigorated fan base.
