It's Vin Scully's final season as the broadcast voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers and once again, the team is one that looks like a contender -- at least on paper. However, the squad will have to break a recent playoff jinx in order to make Scully's last season at the microphone a truly memorable one.

One player who could be key to a successful Dodger season is the one Scully dubbed "Wild Horse". Yasiel Puig's talents are obvious, but he has struggled for consistency during his time with L.A.

One honor Scully can count on even before the Dodgers season begins is that the street leading into Dodger Stadium will be renamed in his honor. The Los Angeles city council voted that change into place recently, with new manager Dave Roberts and other Dodgers players, including pitching ace Clayton Kershaw, attending the meeting to show their support for the move.
