Kevin Brown for Jeff Weaver?

Sheffield... ugh
Gordon... wtf are they thinking?

but dumping Weaver for 2 years of Kevin Brown is a GOOD move.
even if you have to throw in someone else.

I'd MUCH prefer Vasquez to anyone else "available" BUT the cheap teams keep asking for Soriano in any trade talk, which is ridiculous.

I have a friend who's a LA fan. She was grinning because NY got Sheffield. My friend thinks Sheffield was a waste. Personality wise yes. Production wise no. LA couldn't score off Canseco pitching. LA's giveaway of Sheffield, (Jordan and Perez), who can't pitch outside Chavez Ravine, is a prime example of why LA's offense and team in general, is such a mess. Forget how much a player cries, complains, or bad mouths. Sheffield nearly won a mvp this year. If i was a Yank fan, i would be dancing in the streets. 12 mil a year for a triple crown mvp threat is pretty close to a steal.

A humorous quote from a New York Post Online article:

If the Dodgers were to trade Brown, according to sources, it would be for a hitter, not a hittee.

I dont understand why the Dodgers, with the pitching they have, dont plan on playing more small ball. They have about the hardest hitters park in baseball.

LA was 8th in bunts, only 17 behind leader, so it looks like they did some. In a tie game at home, say 8th or 9th inning, playing small ball looks like a good idea. But smallball encourages outs, (bunting). LA ranked 29th in oba. Every Dodger made a out 70% of time he batted. They were last in walks. LA needs to start walking, since it makes no out, and creates baserunners. Playing in a pitchers park, why not use walks, as a way of neutralizing the negative park effects?

A's fans may not fill the ballpark (though they didn't do as bad as perceived last year: 17th in attendance, averaged 27,000), but the fans that go do know their Billy ball. They cheer as much for a walk as for a single.
