Maybe another injury and it works out but in one league I was kinda counting on Betemit playing every day from here on out.


I really wish they didn't trade for Lugo. He was completely unnecessary, as they had their ideal infield in Betemit, Furcal, Kent, Nomar, when all are healthy. It's especially disappointing to me, as a Lugo owner, because now I need a replacement SS when Nomar comes back.


yeah i also wish they didn't trade for lugo. Not because i'm a dodgers fan but because i'm a lugo owner. Not only is his playing time in question now but he most likely will not be stealing as many bases and moves to a pitchers park. I think at this point its anyones guess as to what happens in the infield but most likely lugo will be used as a utility man... :-t

Lugo out? Now that's really disgusting. I could argue that Lugo is a better SS than Furcal. If I were Lugo, I'd be pissed if this happens.

Why is trading for Lugo a bad idea? Sure, they gave up a top prospect, but at the same token, how can you count on Nomar and Kent both being healthy, while putting a young player at third who hasn't had an everyday gig at the majors yet. Having a surplus of talent is never a bad thing unless it's taking up too much payroll, but that's not the case here.

Lugo sat last night in favor of Loney at 1B. The Dodgers situation is beginning to have all the earmarks of a fantasy nightmare. If Kent remains healthy and Normar makes it back (granted, neither are a sure thing), I can forsee one of those situations where Grady gives liberal days off to Furcal, Kent and Nomar wihile shuffling Lugo and Betmit (and I guess Loney and Sainz) in and out of the line-up. In other words, Lugo, Kent, Nomar and Betemit, otherwise effective and worthwhile fantasy players, would be starting 60-90% of the time each, destroying a lot of fantasy value.

Good for the Dodgers to have this depth, bad for fantasy owners.

Lugo is too good to be sitting on the bench... perhaps because of their age (Nomar and Kent especially), they intend to shuttle Lugo around the infield to keep everybody fresh for a playoff run... but I can't see the Dodgers trading a top prospect for a good 5 tool stud so he can sit on the pine for half the games.

That or he's the new 3b mostly, and spot starts at the other IF spots to give the others days off.

Wll really up his value in terms of utility next year.

How about

Betemit - 3B
Furcal - SS
Kent - 2B
Nomar 1B
Ethier - LF
Lugo - CF
Drew - RF

Damn... still no Loney. That sucks.

When Nomar is healthy, Lugo is the 2nd best bat on the club and he's got awesome speed on the basepaths. You have to get his bat in the lineup somehow. Since he's a switch hitter, He can spot start for a lot of righties against righties.... Frankly, he's better than Kent or Furcal, but benching those guys will cause a huge stink... so thirdbase seems the likely spot.
