Come February, with most of the country still trapped in winter’s deep freeze, Major League Baseball teams migrate to warmer areas to prepare for the upcoming season. Carrying high hopes for 2013, two of those teams, the White Sox and Dodgers, share the field at Phoenix’s Camelback Ranch to train before their respective stadiums have finished blow-drying the grass.
A year ago, the White Sox emerged as one of the American League’s most surprising clubs, combining for 211 home runs—third-most in all of baseball—during an 85–77 campaign, landing them in second place in the Central Division behind the eventual AL champion Detroit Tigers. Out west, the Dodgers endured a similar fate in the National League, coming up short to the eventual world-champion Giants, but not before shocking the baseball world by acquiring some of the game’s biggest names. The Dodgers finished with an 86–76 record, thanks in large part to the third-best pitching staff in the MLB, which finished with a tidy 3.34 ERA. Thanks to their time in the desert, both teams expect to improve on those outcomes come spring, easily surmounting any armadillos that roll their way.
