    So say we do sign Andruw. Where does that leave Ethier and Kemp? I sure hope they don't start the season platooning right field again. They need to be in the starting lineup.

    supposedly we're looking for an upgrade at 3rd, and we've spoken with the Rangers about Hank Blalock

    The Texas Rangers are quietly shopping third baseman Hank Blalock, who spent last season battling injuries. Even when healthy, Blalock's production has slipped significantly from his All-Star 2003 and 2004 seasons when he hit 61 home runs and drove in 200 runs.

    The Rangers have spoken to the Dodgers regarding Blalock, who will make an affordable $5.95 million in 2008 with a club option in 2009 for $6.2 million. The Dodgers want to add a big bat at third base because they aren't convinced Nomar Garciaparra will return even to his 2006 form or that prospect Andy LaRoche can shake back pain and become a productive everyday player. However, they aren't convinced Blalock is the answer.

    I think you've got it backwards. I would bet Andruw can get at least 5, but the Dodgers would be smart to keep it shorter.

    I think Kemp clearly out performed Either, and has the much bigger future. I've always seen Ethier as the perfect 4th outfeilder. Of course we rather have Ethier playing instead of Pierre, but thats how things are...

    Ethier in left, Kemp in right, Pierre on the bench or hopefully traded.

    but given how much Torre likes veterans with speed, will that happen?

    Ethier, Jones, Kemp. That's a wet-dream outfield compared to what we've had the last two seasons.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    13 minutes behind my post Frolov. I know you might be thrown off today because the Raiders pretty much ended your season yesterday but you gotta shake that off.

    Ideally we'd bite the bullet on Pierre and trade him for whatever we could get. Even eating salary if necessary.

    Ugh, what did LaRoche do to Colletti. Seriously, can we give this guy a shot? It's funny that this article mentions LaRoche's back injury, yet offers up Blalock as a solution. A guy who has been hurt the last 3-4 years or so.
