Dodgers begin 2013 spring training at Camelback Ranch

The most expensive team in baseball history has assembled at the Dodgers’ Arizona spring-training complex.

The Dodgers have a projected opening-day payroll of $230 million and a roster that includes a dozen former All-Stars.

Several of these players were acquired in the middle of last season, which ended with a shocking collapse that left them eight games back of their division rival, the San Francisco Giants. General Manager Ned Colletti thinks that spending the spring together could allow these Dodgers to meet the incredibly high expectations of their ambitious and free-spending owners.

“I think we have a chance to be a very special team,” Colletti said.

There is also the potential for a lot to go wrong. Several key players are returning from significant injuries and the team has question marks on the left side of the infield, as well as at the top of the batting order.
