Dodger Fans Wholeheartedly Agree

Armando Benitez had stern words of warning to the Giants, looking to deal the erratic and extremely large-girthed pitcher:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Armando Benitez doesn't know if he will be traded but said the Giants would be making a big mistake if they let him go.

"I'll tell you something: You'll see this year what I do -- all you guys," said Benitez, after allowing a run on three soft singles Thursday. "You'll say, 'He told me.'"...

"(Bochy) needs me, I do it. If I feel healthy and good, I don't worry about this."

Benitez isn't worrying about a trade, either.

"I understand the situation. I (won't) be (ticked) off," Benitez said. "I've been in this business for 13 years. It wouldn't be the first time I've been traded. But it'd be a mistake."

Hey, we agree. Keep him, Bochy. On behalf of Dodger fans everywhere.
