I'd be happy to have the Dodgers sign Blake.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

I'd pass. Blake got worse as the season went on and he wasn't very good to begin with. Not to mention he's 35 and his skills are deteriorating.

I'd just play DeWitt at third. DeWitt was ok at 2nd, he wans't anything special. His bat plays better there but over the course of a 162 game season I think we'll see his defense suffer at 2B.

I was cheering like a mad man when Blake hit the go-ahead home run. What a feeling.
And after all that, I'd be pissed if the Dodgers re-signed him, especially at anything more than 1 year.

Anyone here know what's the status of Abreu?

Tony? Man good question. He's probably still hurt. Just checked this site that shows what our guys are doing in winter ball and he's not listed.

Baseball Prospectus article, one of their writers plays Dodgers GM for a day. Interesting moves, though I don't see them having much of a shot at retaining Lowe which complicates these ideas.

I like everyone of this guys suggestions. Living in Seattle now I don't hear all the info so why is Lowe not going to resign with us?
