Evan Drellich of mlb.com runs with the headline, "LA unsure where to go to fill roster", which sort of sums up how the Dodgers look one week from the trade deadline and just over two months short of the end of the 2010 season.
We're in third place, six games back of the Padres (with a crucial series in San Diego starting Tuesday), and manager Joe Torre has basically thrown up his hands in desperation given the lack of options that the Dodgers have at ANY level.
Meanwhile, no moves from Ned Colletti. Can we raise the white flag any higher?
Oh, and the piece ends with this gem:
Torre has been beholden to [roster spot waster Garret] Anderson more for his presence and intangibles than his on-field contribution. He's batting .186.
Actually, Anderson is now batting .181 after yesterday's 0-for-4 with a walk performance. But the PRESENCE he shows in batting 0-for-4: now that is indeed irreplacable. And intangible. And insignificant.
