With the NL West as it is, I don't see why they can't make a run at a piece that *might* help them. Blake is by no means the answer like a Sabathia or Holliday but the NL playoffs figures to be a crapshoot although the Dodgers will muff it entirely as they always have in either being too cheap or not proactive enough.
As for the move, management just doesn't know when to ride their patience or be impatient enough to move. I've always been a proponent for Andy Laroche but aside from running in with injuries, unfortunately he hasn't had his chances to make a good impression.
