    Our boy Jon Weisman attended the media day that the Dodgers hosted at the Mini Camp. Here's the link to the entire blog post.

    http://dodgerthoughts.baseballtoaste...es/897243.html

    Weisman blogs about the 3rd baseman situation, Kershaw, and Schmidt among other things.

    Here are some things that I thought were interesting.

    Watson also commented positively about Miller, who will be competing for a bullpen job.

    "He was healthy all of 2007," Watson said. "We worked on the command. He was in Arizona Fall League, and he's healthy. The velocity was back last year he was anywhere from 92 to 97 (mph) the entire year. The command was the thing we were really trying to harness through the course of the year."
    I pretty much wrote off Greg Miller after seeing his awful numbers in Arizona Fall League but it is good to see that his velocity came back to him. Hopefully they figure out his command in the Spring. I'd imagine that trying to regain velocity is a lot harder than trying to regain command.

    Plus a lefty that throws 92-97 is nothing to sneeze at. At the very least it seems like Miller might be a solid LOOGY candidate in the future. And his ceiling is a power lefty out of the pen who can pitch 1-2 innings at a time. Let's all cross our fingers that Miller figures it out.

    Watson said the Dodgers do plan to convert 2007 minor-league relief ace Jonathan Meloan to a starting pitching role, and that's how he'll begin the season (one would think in Las Vegas).
    Sarf and I have been driving the Meloan bandwagon for awhile so any updates on his status catch my eye. I had seem some stuff about converting Meloan to a starting pitcher role but in my mind I had always penciled him in for one our our bullpen spots this year because as a RP he's ready and we could use another power arm in the pen.

    Converting him to a SP isn't a bad thing though. It'll take longer for Meloan to get to the majors but a good SP is always better than a good RP. And he can always go back to reliving if starting doesn't work out.

    Anyways, with Meloan most likely not being apart of our bullpen this year it seems like the Dodgers will be relying heavily on Scott Proctor to be the bridge to the 8th inning. I believe I saw that we had re-signed him to a one year deal. So it seems like we'll have Saito, Broxton, Proctor, and Beimel as our main arms. With guys like Brazoban and Houlton in the mix as well.

    I hope i'm wrong, but he might be too old to continue to comeback from injuries. Hopefully he's throwing harder than 85 mph in spring training.
    I'm not sure what to expect of Schmidt this year. He had his surgery in June I believe, so he's had a lot of time to rest and rehab. That being said, I'm comfortable giving him as much time as possible to recover. I think with the depth in our rotation we can afford to wait till even the All Star Game to activate him. We'll see what happens but getting a healthy Schmidt at the all star break would be huge.

    Schmidt's a real wild card. I remember being really excited when we signed him last offseason. I just hope he doesn't turn into our version of Mark Mulder.

    I don't expect anything from Schmidt. That way if we get ANYTHNG from him, it will be a nice surprise.

    Good POV. But ****, with his contract, we better get something out of him. I'm tired of this organization paying players who don't play.

    Good to know $25 million is going to two guys who in the best-case scenario might combine to cover the #5 starter spot.
