MESA, Ariz. -- The Dodgers had an infield in the 1970s and early '80s -- Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey -- that spent eight celebrated seasons together.
The infield of the 2014 Athletics didn't last eight months. Gone are Brandon Moss, Jed Lowrie and Josh Donaldson, the team's best player. The primary second baseman, Eric Sogard, remains in camp in an anticipated utility role.
