Really interested to see what the Dodgers are going to do at the deadline. Although they seem content with their starting rotation, I will not be surprised to see them acquire another starter to really make that rotation complete.
Someone like Jake Peavy would be awesome for this team. He's a west coast guy and knows the NL West all too well.
As far as position players go, I don't think they will go after a third baseman anymore, but if they do, you could see them get a player like Michael Young. There's not much talent available at third and although I like Kyle Seager, the Mariners don't seem intent on selling despite them being out of the race.
With that Cuban shortstop/second baseman, there are conflicting reports to whether he was signed or not, but if he does end up signing, he'll be up with our club by September.
I expect all our outfielders to stay put for at least this season. Kemp can't stay healthy and Crawford's health is still a question mark sometimes, so it doesn't make sense to trade Ethier, who has been our healthiest outfielder.
And as far as our relief pitching goes, you'll see an arm added but question is if it will be via trade. If the Dodgers go after a starter, you'll see Fife go to the bullpen as a long reliever, but even at that point, I think they could add a back of the bullpen guy. Jansen seems to have taken the closer role permanently, so a veteran set up guy will be key.
Peavy isn't a west coast guy, he's from Alabama...
I'd love to see the Dodgers acquire Peavy but I think the Braves are going to end up trading for him now that they lost Tim Hudson. He'd probably be more comfortable playing there rather than LA also...
