  5. Injuries and contenders: Not a good mix

    In the course of the last few days, four likely playoff teams have taken devastating hits via injury. The timing couldn't be any worse, with Opening Day 11 days away as I write (unless you're a Dodgers or Diamondabacks fan, and those teams open play Down Under in Australia on Saturday).
