Even after the Orioles' thrilling 2012 season, it still brings a smile to many fans' faces when you mention that fabled late-September night in 2011 when the O's ruined the Red Sox's season and sent them into a tumultuous year-plus. Well, this Dodgers team will jog your memory, as L.A. was the buyer in Boston's yard sale last summer. The Dodgers have former Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and left fielder Carl Crawford, both disappointments of varying degrees in Boston. The also have Josh Beckett, a central figure in the "chicken and beer" controversy, who starts Saturday night's game against Wei-Yin Chen.
