    Second to the Cardinals, I loved the 60's Dodgers with Koufax, Drysdale, Wills, Willie Davis, Tommy Davis, Junior Gilliam and our very own local Claude Osteen. Then I learned to hate the Dodgers in the 70's and beyond. During that time, the Braves moved from 3rd to 2nd on my faves list.
    Koufax, Drysdale, Osteen, Podres, Messersmith, Singer, Hooton, Erskine, Perranoski, Tommy John, Welch, Sutton...the Dodgers always, and I mean ALWAYS have great pitching. And, they have the third-best uniform in MLB.

    A little before my time, but I can understand how one would like them. I would loved to have seen Koufax pitch. For a 5 year period, he was as good as anyone ever has or ever will be.
