The Los Angeles Dodgers are on a role right now and we know what they're capable of when they're firing on all cylinders. The Oakland Athletics are better than what they've shown up to this point, but their offense is ice cold right now and it's tough to back them against a team like the Dodgers when they can't hit their way out of a wet paper bag. Tough spot for the A's. Give me the Dodgers, and I'll take the RL to shave down the expensive ML price.
