The San Francisco battle the Los Angeles Dodgers on Opening Day - Monday, April 1, 2013 - at 4:10 p.m. ET at Dodgers Stadium in the LA, California.

Heading into Opening Day, Bleacher Report sports columnist Joel Reuter predicts the season outlook MLB power rankings. The Giants head into the 2013 regular season at the no 1 spot - as Reuter points out, "The reigning champs have owned the top spot in my rankings all offseason, and that's where they'll start 2013 as they look to defend their crown. Pitching is still the strength of the team. Though it remains to be seen if Tim Lincecum can return to form, the rest of the rotation is solid and the bullpen is one of the best in baseball. Offensively, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, as the Giants find ways to back their pitching staff without a high-powered offense. NL MVP Buster Posey will once again be asked to do the heavy lifting."
The Dodgers snag the no 10 overall spot (out of 30 teams). According to Reuter, "The free-spending Dodgers were at it again this offseason, signing Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu to bolster their pitching staff. After adding so many new faces in the past 10 months, they'll now need to work on coming together as a team. A healthy Matt Kemp is joined by Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier in the middle of the lineup, and Carl Crawford will be looking to prove he's still a star after a rocky tenure in Boston and Tommy John surgery in August. The rotation will once again be led by Clayton Kershaw. And though he's battled elbow problems this spring, Greinke should give them a second ace-caliber arm once he's healthy. The Dodgers may have more rotational depth than any team in baseball, and that will only help them over the course of a full season."
