... you can't deny that a HR hitter would help. And you also fail to mention LA has one of the best (3rd) team ERAs in the NL, sitting at 4.28.
Another thing ... of the 5 best team ERAs in the NL, four of them are in the WEST!
Meaning ... we can't win this division with pitching. We need power.
Personally, I'd LOVE Soriano ... even if we have to give the whole damn farm for him. Speed and power ... plus he could take over at 2nd (like he wants) when Kent retires. Or we can move Kent to 1st and Nomar to 3rd, and trade Cesar.
Considering the Dodgers have one of the better farm systems ... I think we could make a serious run at Alfonz. I hope Coletti is thinking along the same idea ...
