    Scavenging the Dodgers' corpse

    The Dodgers are dead--and they have some tasty middle relievers...and Brad Penny. Are there any matches for any of their arms? Any thoughts?

    They should give up. They might be 6 or 7 back of the Wild Card on July 31, with several teams to leapfrog in their own division. A smart team reassesses at that point. A dumb team "goes for it."

    My Cardinals are now 6-0 against them this season with one game left to play. I wish they were in the central.

    I would love Takashi Saito, but I'm afraid his contract and the attendant difficulties of having a Japanese pitcher (i.e., interpreter, media, etc.) would kill any such deal before it even got off the ground.

    go ahead and add the Astros and Brewers to the death watch.

    I was just thinking that last night, but wait a minute!! ESPN still says the Astros are going to win the wild card, so it must be true.

    But they are only 3.5 back now. I'm guessing they will wait to see if they are indeed 6-7 games back before pulling the trigger. And teams out of it will generally only trade FA's to be. The Dodgers wouldn't have a general fire sale of young cheap talent.

    Well, I am talking about guys like Carrara and Penny--not exactly spring chickens.

    Re: Scavenging the Dodgers' corpse

    If ever there was a time so far this season to run off a massive winning streak, this week would be it. Win today, then roll over both Houston and Milwaukee (again) on the road over the next week, and we'll be lookin' nice.

    Not only would that put us right up in the Cardinals' face, but it could force Houston or Milwaukee to possibly consider selling instead of buying or sitting still. If they're only five or six games behind us, I can't see them selling, but if they're nine games back of the wildcard following a beatdown from us, the chances of them raising the white flag altogether would be greatly increased.

    I don't realistically see any of the above happening, but it's a nice thought to have anyway.

    Penny doesn't have 10/5 rights yet does he? Just wondering if eh would even accept a deal to come here if he does...

    Count me in the crowd that would love to see him here provided we don't have to mortgage the whole farm to get him.

    Nope.

    I'd love to see Penny here, I have a feeling though the Dodgers would ask the moon for him.
