For sure a Fronline starter (haren, oswalt, lee) in my opinion. But i dont think they will trade for haren within their division. Offense is pretty solid as well as the bullpen.

I don't know that we need a 'frontline' starter. Kershaw and CBills (and occasionally Kuroda) are close enough to that for me. We could definitely use some depth, something in a Ted Lilly perhaps. Not that I'm against having Cliff Lee on the team. I'm just against what Colletti is likely to give up for him.

ya makes sense. Ely's been struggling and monastarios is jekel and hyde. padilla is...well....never been a fan..so yes a solid veteren pitcher would been nice..like lily or westbrook from cleveland

Statues in the Outfield | FanGraphs Baseball

Quote:
Essentially, at this point, the Dodgers are running out an outfield that consists of a right fielder and two designated hitters. While all three are quality hitters and help the team score runs, they are giving back a lot of value with their lack of range in the outfield. The team’s run prevention problems do not fall on just the pitchers, as they aren’t getting much support from the guys behind them.
I'd try and do something along the lines of trading Loney and moving Either to 1st base. Slide Kemp over to right and find someone to play center

I'd like to officially put Kevin Millwood on the radar.

Yeah, he's 1 - 8 with a 5.12 ERA but

He's striking out 7.26 / 9
walking 2.7 / 9
Giving up 1.77 HR / 9 on a 16% Home Run per Fly Ball rate
Has a .330 BABIP
His FIP and xFIP are 5.06 and 4.17 respectively.

What's that mean?

He's got good command of his pitches with a slightly above average strike out rate (7.02 is average) and below average walk rate (3.42 is average). His fly balls are leaving the yard at an unsustainable rate. Camden Yards gives up 26% more home runs than a neutral park while Dodger Stadium gives up 7% less than a neutral park. So, the home runs would not be as big of an issue. The Orioles have a very poor defense which contributes to the high BABIP. The Dodgers D is pretty bad too, but moving Ethier to 1B, Kemp to RF and getting a CFer would help out.

Millwood wouldn't cost a ton in prospects or dollars and is a solid guy to run out there every 5 days.

Millwood has a tiny set of acorns. Don't be surprised if he asks for a stool to sit in the on deck circle so he can "rest" when the season is on the line. (See 2003 WC race).

.

Got just the player for you. Two time All Star, two time gold glove winner, batted .500 in the most recent NL Division Series while only striking out once, and where the 2010 NL league range factor for centerfielders was 2.17, our fellow registered a sparkling 2.54. Best of all he is already signed through the next two seasons so you will not have to worry about him leaving right away.

Who are you prepared to offer from the LA roster?
