So the Dodgers just dropped two of three to one of the worst teams in the league. So the Dodgers are in Operation Comfort-a-Former-Dodger mode. This doesn't mean Ned should trade for some rent-a-bat who won't help us get past the first round of the playoffs—if we make it at all.
Especially since Andy LaRoche just went on the DL, Ned might be tempted to trade one of our other coveted youngsters for, say, Adam Dunn or Troy Glaus. Instead, Grady should do whatever he needs to do to keep James Loney and Matt Kemp in the lineup. I want to see these guys play every day, even at the expense of post-season play this year.
