Damn The Dodgers! (managment)

So i was gone all friday and pass out early saturday, when i wake up in the afternoon i see the front page of the LA times that they traded Paul Loduca (catcher) who is one of the key players (IMHO) for the dodgers, not only has he put in his time (13 years+ including minors) hes only been with the dodgers. The new GM is a total ASS. And not only did they also trade a great reliefe pitcher but they just traded Dave Roberts to the Sox. I LOVE the dodgers but Hate the new managment, Frank McCort can suck It! All this while the Dodgers are in FIRST place in the west. Sigh, I just had to get this off my chest, resume car loving ppl.

I will never have this off my chest. Worst, most idiotic trade ever. It doesn't even make sense on paper! Even if they HAD gotten Randy Johnson, that's still not enough to make up for losing Mota, LoDuca, and Roberts. Hell, to get Johnson, there was talk of adding Edwin Jackson and Jayson Werth to that. WHAT?! Their BEST pitching prospect, and their BEST young outfielder for a 40 year old pitcher who's 1-4 in his last 8 games and a 39yo outfielder whose stats are no better than LoDucas?! And look where they are now. No CJ to replace LoDuca (oh gee, was that LoDuca with a passed ball tonight? Oh no, that was his "replacement&quot, no setup man (think Mota would have given up 3 hits and walk in the 8th?), a starter whose something like 1-5 in his last six and usually doesn't make it out of the 6th, and was that Bradley instead of Roberst who screwed up the play in center? THIS is the improved Dodgers? I think it's bloody fitting that the Dodger's first time losing a game in which they led going into the 8th in something like 150 games, can be pinned on mistakes by players at 3 of the 4 positions involved in these trades (Choi at 1st was the only one who didn't figure). Bad sign. Thanks a lot DePodesta.

LoDuca's first at bat for the marlins he hits a homer, Christ! Marlins still lost but hell What an entrance to a new team. Yes Choi sucked, and now bradly is going to left or right field now that Centerfield is taken (new guy refused to move). WTF?

I am not a Dodgers fan (Phillies fan ), but I think at least until it all works out this postseason, the deals might have upset the team chemistry that was working well. You didn't see the Cardinals make trades just to make trades... they know what is working.

I would have liked if Finley came to the Phillies ( because we have no other centerfielders), but I understand why Dodgers fans wouldn't have.

Good luck to the Dodgers if the Phillies don't make it ( yeah right at this point )
