The Dodgers and Astros are still the two best teams in baseball, according to the Baseball Prospectus PECOTA projections.
The projections call for 99 wins each between last year's World Series foes.
The Dodgers are projected to finish 13 games over the second-place Arizona Diamondbacks, and a full 10 games above the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs, favorites in their respective National League divisions.
Both the immediate and future is bright, as the following young Dodgers rank in Baseball Prospectus Top 101:
RHP Walker Buehler (21)
OF Alex Verdugo (25)
RHP Yadier Alvarez (41)
C Keibert Ruiz (54)
RHP Dustin May (69)
OF Yusniel Diaz (73)
RHP Mitchell White (86)
