    If Manny walks and LaRoche pans out to be awesome, then I would be depressed.

    Personally, I think the move makes the Dodgers favorites to win the division. But I do not think they will go further than the first round.

    But hey, if the Rockies can catch lightning in a bottle, anything is possible.

    That's pretty much it. The Dodgers have a lot of holes to fill next year:

    SS
    2B
    SP
    3B
    RP

    Some of those holes can be filled with internal options but not all of them. Bringing back Manny would be nice, but probably isn't practical.

    SS-Berroa

    That's what I'm guessing for the near future.
    Thats a pretty impressive 1-8...especially if Kemp and Ethier can continue to work the count deep.

    And if you replace Berroa with Furcal in late Septemer that lineup's ****ing scary

    Ethier is in the top20 amungst the league leaders....Blake right behind him.

    Once again Im no baseball expert but-why dont more batters try and work the count deep? It kills me to watch guys hacking at the first pitch or two and pop it up or foul out or hit the lazy fly.

    ESPN.Com says that it contains the options but you may be right about the waiver with the NTC. I'm sure we'll know tonight between Baseball Tonight and good ol' Vin.
    Scott Boras on ESPN RADIO said the options were removed with the trade.

    I generally agree with you. It's just about walking the fine line between patience and complacency.

    Granted, you can pop up or foul out or hit the lazy fly late in the count too. (Or you can be Andruw Jones, lead the team in P/PA, and strike out all the time.)

    I'm surprised that some people aren't thrilled with this. There's a difference between trading a couple prospects for a rental player and trading a couple of prospects for renting Manny freaking Ramirez.

    He's a pain in the ass for sure, but he'll be distracted enough with a change of scenery to be happy for a while. Hell, he may even like it here and give them a little advantage in resigning him (especially if he helps the Dodgers go on a tear and do some serious damage like i think he will).

    But the bottom line is they're adding one of the best bats in the game into their lineup. When Furcal's back in there, your lineup is almost AL-scary.
