A Giant Series

July 27, 2012

The Dodgers entered San Francisco three games behind the Giants.  By Sunday evening, they could be tied for first, six games behind, or somewhere in between.

The addition of Hanley Ramirez gives the Dodgers a nice boost to their offense.  Hopefully Ned Colletti will be able to take his new budget and add a few more pieces before the Tuesday deadline without giving up any top prospects.  Apparently Allen Webster is so highly regarded that the Dodgers turned down an offer to trade him for Dempster.  It is possible, though a longshot, that they will try to expand the deal to include Soriano, Lehair and/or Garza.  It should be interesting to see how this plays out.  Knowing Colletti’s history, he will probably come up with someone who is not even on any sportswriter’s radar.

Dodgers lineup:
Hairston LF
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Ramirez 3B

Hot in St. Louis

July 24, 2012

Looks like the Dempster deal is on hold.

Chad Billingsley tossed six strong innings in the Dodgers’ fifth straight win, beating the Cardinals 5-3. Luis Cruz (three-run homer) and Mark Ellis (two-run double) delivered the key hits for L.A. while the Cards went 1-for-8 with men in scoring position.

Dodgers lineup for tonight’s game:

Hairston 3B
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Ethier RF
Loney 1B
Rivera LF
Cruz SS
Treanor C

Dodgers have dumpster…Braves have Dempster

July 23, 2012

The biggest name starting pitcher for this trade deadline was acquired  by Atlanta while the Dodgers continue to piece together their lineups from a refuse bin.  In fairness, if Zach Lee was demanded by the Cubs, that price would be too high for a 35 year old 2 month rental.

Today the team begins a series with the league leaders in batting Cardinals.
