Let’s talk about the future of the National League champions

MLB: All-Star Game Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

I am now working on the Kansas City Royals Top 20 prospects list for 2018. The next team in the study queue is the Los Angeles Dodgers, to be followed by the Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Oakland Athletics.

Use this thread to discuss the Los Angeles Dodgers farm system and organization in general. Some possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:

****The Dodgers went 104-58 on the season and took the Astros to Game Seven in the World Series. 104 wins is tough to repeat; you could lose 10 games off that and 94 would still be a fine season by any standards. What do you anticipate for 2018? Are they the favorites for the division again?

****The young offensive duo of Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger: where do they go from here? Can they actually improve as they get into their mid-20s, or is what we see (admittedly excellent) what we get?

****Chris Taylor: due for a fallback, or will he sustain the breakout?

****Joc Pederson: your take on his future?

****Questions on the pitching staff: any chance Ross Stripling can start? Your plans for Walker Buehler? Who fills the 4/5 spots in the rotation?

****As always, please discuss your sleeper prospects or guys who are overlooked or anything else Dodgers-oriented.
