Well, that was some sweet revenge for my friends who are Dodgers fans. What a pounding. I wish I would’ve had the time to write that if Ramirez was available, he would’ve been nothing short of a perfect fit for us.
I don’t want to mort
gage the future for a rental either, but you never get a second chance to win a title. If this team is mediocre, and there are many reasons to think so; then a trade right now might not make sense. However, career years like Cabrera’s are few and far between, Posey is becoming a legitimate middle of the order force, and everyone but Lincecum is pitching their asses off. One big bat very well could make the difference.
UPDATE: Via Baseball Musings, the Dodgers have gone all in, landing Ryan Dempster on
top of Shane Victorino and Hanley Ramirez. The Giants
got Hunter Pence. *sigh* I feel like Charlie Brown at Halloween.
UPDATE: Whew. The Dodgers didn’t get Dempster. That’s a big relief.
