I like what the Dodgers have done this off-season. I think Jason Schmidt will bring alot of experience and will have an affect on the other pitchers like Derek Lowe and Brad Penny. I’m a little worried on the young guys not being able to play next year. Where is James Loney going to play ? Nomar has that spot at 1st Base. Juan Pierre and Luis Gonzalez are in the outfield. Andre Ethier needs to prove himself that he can handle Major League pitching because he was bad at the end of the year. Matt Kemp might not be ready and might start at Triple-A Las Vegas. It’s going to be a fun Spring Training I guess. Before I end this post, I’d like to wish Eric Gagne good luck in Texas and thank him for all the memories.
