The 30: The Dodgers can't lose and the Nationals finally get bullpen help

The Dodgers are the clear favorite in the National League, but the Nationals and Cubs have brought in reinforcements to try and keep up. We discuss it all in our latest Power Rankings.

They’re a loaded team, armed with youth and veterans, stars and invaluable role players. They’re a venerable franchise, rolling over the rest of the National League and eyeing the end of a long World Series drought.

The 2017 Dodgers look a lot like the 2016 Cubs right now. Even with two and a half months left in the regular season, you can close your eyes and imagine them vying for a championship in the waning days of October.

It’s the NL version of The 30, and the Dodgers are the team to beat.
