    Default Los Angeles Dodgers - Official August Thread

    The Dodgers need a dose of some good luck in August. It's time for a sexy party.

    It just dawned on me that FBJ never did the June recap. Now he has 2 months worth to do...

    So get on it!

    I second that, Tony. We need to right this ship, immediately!

    If only the pitching can pull it together for the final third of the season, this will be a playoff year. I think Penny, Lowe, and Billingsley could finally lead this team past the 1st round.

    Gotta have hope.

    Trade Winners:

    5. Dodgers

    Like the Yankees, they get points for not doing anything stupid. They made a bold push for A's right-hander Joe Blanton, offering three highly regarded prospects, but in the end settled for right-handed reliever Scott Proctor from the Yankees.

    It's difficult to embrace that move after Proctor was Torre-ized (i.e., worn down by excessive use), but it's not as if any of the other NL West contenders made significant improvements.


    ...and in case you were wondering...

    Trade Losers:

    3. Angels

    It's amazing how one of the game's best organizations annually ends up on this list, but the Angels have this annoying habit of targeting one player — Paul Konerko as a free agent after the '05 season, Teixeira at this year's deadline — then retreating when their best efforts fail.

    In fairness, the Angels had a deal in place for shortstop Miguel Tejada last season before Orioles owner Peter Angelos interceded, and they made a competitive offer for Teixeira. But too often, the Angels point out why deals don't make sense instead of why they do. And unless they make a waiver move in August, they'll again be left with too little around Vladimir Guerrero.


    In Between:

    2. Padres

    Michael Barrett, Milton Bradley, Scott Hairston, Rob Mackowiak, Morgan Ensberg, Shea Hillenbrand on a minor-league contract . . . it all adds up to what, exactly?

    Replacing hitting coach Merv Rettenmund with Wally Joyner is yet another low-impact move that would have paled in comparison next to, say, the addition of an Adam Dunn.

    Penny looked ok last night and Vin said Lowe is set to go this weekend, so that's real good news. Not so good that Wolf was shut down for another week, but of the three we'll live with it. Proctor is what he is, but we have 8th and 9th inning guys, so hopefully he won't make a big difference. It would be nice to have a few more actual relievers back there rather than burnt out starters, but it isn't going to make or break us.

    We need guys to hit the way they came out of the break. Hopefully Kent isn't out long and it doesn't slow his momentum, Nomar steps up like he did last year and Martin doesn't wear down.

    Unrealistic expectation. Hot streaks are nice but unsustainable; overall our offense is just not very potent.

    While I like Bill Mueller and think he's good to have around, the way people were jerking him off around here because of a three-week hot streak is a bit much.

    Is Proctor a rental until the end of the season?

    Like Betemit, he is arbitration-eligible for the first time after this season. We control his rights until after the 2010 season.
