ESPN's Phil Rogers puts the Giants at the top of his list of teams which will have a "restless December" due to a lack of moves (to date) and a lot of roster holes to fill. It's interesting that the Giants have been quiet while they have so many holes to fill (by Rogers' count, "two outfielders, a third baseman, a second baseman, possibly a first baseman and at least one, maybe two, starting pitchers"). I don't know if Rogers is counting Randy Winn or Jason Ellison as the other outfielder in the Giants' field (or maybe he's counting Dave Roberts?), but it's clear that they have tons of holes.
On the flip side, here's the Dodgers' lineup, if we start today:
Infield: Garciaparra, Kent, Furcal, Betemit (Loney, LaRoche in the wings)
Outfield: Ethier, Pierre, Anderson (Kemp, Repko, and possibly the return of Werth in the wings)
Catcher: Martin (Hall or potentially Lieberthal as backup)
Starting rotation: Lowe, Penny, Billingsley, Kuo, Wolf (Tomko, Hendrickson in the wings)
Relief pitchers: Brazoban, Broxton, Saito (and a bunch of other guys in the pen, including Elmer's Glue and that guy who sliced his hand open in a bar the night before the playoffs)
So the Dodgers have fewer holes, true. But we still have a lot of work to do; a power bat and a couple more pitchers come to mind.
