    Dodger tidbits

    Ermias (CA): Hey Jim, I just have a general question about how teams value free agents compared to draft picks. Do teams put more value into even low level free agents then they do in potential draft picks? For example the Dodgers will pay a combined $1.4 million in salary to Mark Sweeney and Gary Bennett who were both free agents. That was the same amount that Alex White demanded in order to buy him out of his college commitment. So do teams just consider the potential superstar high pitcher so big of a risk that they'd rather spend the money on mediocre talent?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:01 PM ET ) It's crazy to operate that way, but teams do. Most would rather know what they're getting than gamble on projecting a guy down the road. There's risk with a guy like White, and teams are leery of spending seven figures on a guy who might not make it. (Just using White as an example--he's going to be pretty good.) But if White became as good as he should, the Dodgers potentially would save tens of millions of dollars between what they'd have to pay him over the first six years of his career and his actual worth. You hit on one Alex White, and it's worth missing on several other players. So there's no reason not to put your money where your scouting acumen is.
    Ryan (LA, CA): Where on the moron sclae (1-10) would Frank McCourt rate if he lets Logan White leave to be the GM somewhere else while Ned Colletti stays on in LA?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:02 PM ET ) That would be a disastrous decision. Still can't believe the Astros hired Ed Wade over White, reportedly because Wade's experience would allow them to contend quicker.
    Rich (Sikeston, MO): Hi Jim. Now that we've seen a little bit of what Blake DeWitt can do at the ML level (see May) before struggling this month, do you have a better read on what he might be able to do at the top level? Do you think he can be a guy that hits close to .300 with 20-25 HR power and a good glove at 3B? Or can he switch back to 2B? Thanks

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:22 PM ET ) I do like the bat, not sure I buy quite tha much power. He's going to have to be a third baseman.

    Proctor to the DL. Bennett to the 60 day DL. And Falkenborg called up to take proctors spot.

    Dodgers option Proctor, no wait, DL him - PE.com - Professional Sports

    So can Billingsley's right arm just fall off and Derek Lowe's spleen rupture now so we can get it over with?

    Odds are that we'll never see Bennett again. Not that that's a big deal or anything...

    Matt Kemp again failed to plate a runner at 3rd with less than 2 outs... in case you were wondering. They guy is pretty decent when he doesn't swing at balls that bounce a foot in front of the plate but he is the last guy on the team I want up in the above mentioned situation.

    Or if Arizona would stop being as horrible as the Dodgers. If any team in the division starts playing slightly above average they will run away with it by August.

    Fair degree of runs being scored for Stults tonight...

    5-0 Dodgers, top fifth.

    Pretty sad that the D-Backs were 20-8 on May 1st, have gone 20-31 since, and have only lost 1.5 games of their lead of 1st place.

    5 runs and a CG SHO for Stults. You know what's great? Dude has 1 ER in two starts and they'll option him for Penny who'll continue to get blown up. Stults isn't a long term solution but he better keep his spot in the rotation until he comes back to earth.

    Win tomorrow and LA is 2.5 back. Unreal.

    Best news of the day is Proctor to the DL. Nice!

    Damn, Kemp is a tough guy to root for. As good as he can be, he can drive you crazy at times.



    And if this isn't a sign from God that Logan White should stay with The Dodgers and eventually replace Ned Colletti (as soon as next season), then nothing is.

    ESPN - Astros suspend pitcher Chacon indefinitely for insubordination - MLB

    COULDA BEEN YOU! STAY IN LA, LOGAN!
