    Awesome FBJ! Still got my fingers crossed for you on the others, but Lowe is not a very good TTM signer, and Martin seems to have stopped recently too. I got him early in his rookie season, but it seems the well has run dry. Not sure about the Killer Tomato.

    Then again, you just never know. I was shocked when you got Gonzo back...and equaly shocked when I got Dodger hero Steve Finley this past year too! Heck, just a couple of weeks ago I got somethign back from Fred McGriff that took almos three years! Sigs look sweet too!

    Like I said...fingers firmly crossed for you, buddy!

    Fox Sports - Breaking down the contenders' flaws
    Los Angeles Dodgers, offense
    If Andruw Jones rebounds, youngsters Matt Kemp and James Loney are in the lineup every day, and third baseman Andy LaRoche adapts to the highest level, then the Dodgers offense will be much better. However, those contingencies in tandem with too much Juan Pierre could mean trouble.
    San Diego Padres, CF
    Jim Edmonds has been in a pattern of steady decline since 2005, and now that he's another year older and about to play his home games in the toughest hitter's park in baseball, things don't figure to improve. Also, will his slowing wheels allow him to cover enough ground in the spacious Petco outfield?
    Arizona Diamondbacks, offense
    The Snakes ranked a paltry 14th in the NL in runs scored last season despite playing in one of the best hitter's parks around. The anticipated skills growth of young hitters like Justin Upton, Chris Young, Conor Jackson, Stephen Drew and Mark Reynolds should help matters, but that's making a lot of assumptions.
    Colorado Rockies, 2B
    Since losing the overrated Kaz Matsui to free agency, the Rockies have been looking for a second baseman. In camp, you can expect a battle among Jayson Nix, Marcus Giles, Clint Barmes, Omar Quintanilla, Ian Stewart and Jeff Baker. None of those options is particularly inspiring.

    I heard Buck Martinez & Mark Patrick talking on XM this mornign about the Bedard to Seattle rumors. They were saying one of the hold ups is the recent involvement of a couple other teams, specifically the Reds and the Dodgers. I haven't seen anything, anywhere about the Dodgers in on Bedard again. Has anyone else?

    The Seattle Times was reporting Sunday that Bedard to the M's was a done deal. Last night I heard it was a done deal except for Peter Angelos. I would not surprised at all if other teams got involved and monkeyed (cue Mitch) this up.

    Keith Law came up with his own top 100 prospect list for ESPN. Has some really great writeups. Here are the Dodgers on the list

    6
    Clayton Kershaw
    LHP

    Los Angeles Dodgers
    TOP '07 LEVEL: AA (Jacksonville)

    Kershaw has about as good an arm as you're likely to see on a young left-hander. His arm works extremely well, with little effort and quick movement through his delivery. His stuff is outstanding, a plus-plus fastball at 93-96 with good downhill plane and a two-plane hammer curve in the mid-70s that must cause left-handed hitters to strain their obliques as they try to hold up. He has a changeup with good fading action, but doesn't sell it well enough and right-handers can sit on it a little bit, although he can improve that with experience. The Dodgers promoted fellow pitching prospect Scott Elbert aggressively and worked him hard in 2006, and he responded with a shoulder injury that required surgery in May. They worked Kershaw less hard -- he faced 93 fewer hitters than Elbert did -- but still pushed him to AA before he was ready, and 19-20-year-old pitchers do get hurt. That's the only thing likely to stop him from becoming a top-of-the-rotation starter.
    25

    Andy LaRoche
    3B
    Los Angeles Dodgers
    TOP '07 LEVEL: Majors

    Big league teams can do funny things. The Dodgers liked LaRoche enough to give him a seven-figure bonus after taking him as a summer follow in the 39th round in 2003. They moved him up aggressively, gave him a shot at the big league job and decided a month later that he couldn't hit, instead accepting mediocre production from known quantities until they started to fall out of the playoff race in September. Now, after several abortive attempts to acquire a third baseman, the Dodgers are going to give LaRoche a chance to "win" the job over Nomar Garciaparra (who can't field a lick at third and isn't much with the bat) in spring training. Here's the scoop: LaRoche can, in fact, hit, and he'll hit for average with excellent on-base percentages, with middle-of-the-road power. He can play third, but doesn't project as a plus glove. He should be handed the everyday job right now.
    50

    Hu Chin-Lung
    SS
    Los Angeles Dodgers
    TOP '07 LEVEL: Majors
    Hu has an incredible combination of defensive ability and instincts that should net him a long career in the majors. His ceiling is entirely determined by how much he hits, and the jury on that one is still out. He has good bat speed and excellent bat control, putting the ball in play and trying to pepper the outfield with line drives. He needs to show this year that he can turn on some hard stuff inside. He never is going to hit for power, and his OBPs always will be driven by batting average. In the field, Hu is a wizard and a future fan favorite. He has plus range in both directions and a strong, accurate arm. But best of all is his natural feel for the game and constant awareness of game situations. If he keeps getting stronger, he should be an All-Star shortstop at the big league level who competes for Gold Gloves.
    52

    James McDonald
    RHP
    Los Angeles Dodgers
    TOP '07 LEVEL: AA (Jacksonville)
    McDonald signed as a pitcher as a draft-and-follow prospect, hurt his arm, moved to the outfield, hurt his coaches by not hitting a lick and moved back to the mound, where he's hurt opposing hitters by racking up K's like there might be a run on the strikeout banks. McDonald is Clay Buchholz Lite: average fastball or slightly below, above-average curve and changeup, good control and feel for pitching. His curve gets swings and misses in the minors, but it's a bit of a slow roller and he'll have to use it more sparingly in the big leagues unless he can tighten its rotation.
    86

    Chris Withrow
    RHP
    Los Angeles Dodgers
    TOP '07 LEVEL: Rookie (GCL Dodgers)
    Keep an eye on this one. Withrow pitched all spring with an average fastball (88-91 mph) and a fringe-average curve with good depth but an early break, but his velocity rose after his move to pro ball. He has some projection left and has a great delivery with a quick, explosive move toward the plate. And after the success of Chad Billingsley and Clayton Kershaw to date, the Dodgers get a little extra credit on first-round arms.
