Dodgers No. 6 in one offseason power ranking report

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

One ESPN expert feels the Dodgers are one of baseball's most complete teams.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been one of baseball's most aggressive clubs this offseason, and they stole all of the national headlines when they signed ace pitcher Zack Greinke. Now armed with a deep rotation, formidable lineup and solid bullpen, many feel the Dodgers will be one of the National League's best teams in 2013.

ESPN's Buster Olney recently released his top 10 power rankings for clubs as they're currently assembled now. There are still a couple of key free agents on the market who could change things up a bit, but as of now, Olney has L.A. ranked sixth.

You can pick holes in this team, starting with the left side of the infield, and it might not be a good sign that manager Don Mattingly is talking about how the pressure on the team isn't really fair to the players. But you can't get around this: The Dodgers have a whole lot of good players, from Clayton Kershaw to Zack Greinke to Matt Kemp to Adrian Gonzalez. Overall, the Dodgers have 10 players who make $11 million or more.

It will be interesting to see if Los Angeles' new ownership group allows for any more big signings or trades to go down this offseason. As Olney pointed out, there are a couple of flaws with the team, although there is currently nothing that immediately warrants a drastic change. Assuming the Dodgers can stay healthy next season, they should remain near the top of everyone's power rankings from April through September.
