How can ANYONE look at the huge difference between Park's home stats and away stats and maintain interest?
Hopefully we don't get shut out on FA's (not counting Blake)...
It might cause Colletti to ... do something.
Now with Furcal's money no longer needed, the Dodgers are probably going to pony up to three years for Manny...damn, this offseason sure got away from them. No shortshop, 2 starting pictures or Manny. Being a Dodger fan right now sure isn't fun.
It's not all :violin:Quote:

...as opposed to.....?
You would have preferred offering an aging, oft-injured SS 4 years when we have a promising kid in DeJesus in the farm? You would have preferred picking up the 1-year option on a pitcher with "shoulder problems"? I would have liked Derek Lowe as much as the next guy but **** Scott Boras. And even though the Dodgers NEEEED Manny next season and maybe the next... I have nightmares of Manny in LF in years 3, 4, and 5. Remember Bonds?
Hopefully DeJesus turns out better than that Hu kid.

Potential fall out could be the Angels and Yankees making big bids for Manny.
Eh. Guess they gotta replace that Manny contract. With Ortiz aging apparently at the rate of decades instead of years, and question marks about Lowell's health and whatever is going to ail Drew this year, they kind of need another big bat just in case.
Wonder what kind of market there would be for Lowell.
