So one of the tastier nuggets in this morning's puff piece by the L. A. Times' Kevin Baxter was that the Dodgers have managed to lard their roster with not one, not two, but three former South Alabama players (Juan Pierre, Luis Gonzalez, and Marlon Anderson for those of you scoring at home and/or members of the University of South Alabama Alumni Association). While the Sons of Steve Garvey fully appreciate the values of higher education, we just have to question the wisdom of concentrating so much "brainpower" on the same roster. It's not like the Jaguars are exactly a collegiate baseball powerhouse.
