LA Dodgers? Bring a Stretcher w/you if you come to the gm

Look at this lineup - which is pretty good overall - but they'd win "most likely to have DL Player of the year"

Furcal - coming off arthroscopic knee surgery ???? who knows
Lofton - he's 39 and hasn't played more than 85 games in three yrs
Drew - we all know about drew right? (IE wrist surgery plus the fact that he's missed an average of 50 games a year for the past 7 yrs in a row)
Kent - just had wrist surgery and expected to miss part of spring training
NOMAR - god only knows what he'll do this year
Jose Cruz - could be good but oft injured too
Mueller - his 150 games last year was 40 more than his average since 2000.

I think they put this team together like an expansion keeper league fantasy baseball team. They new they couldn't compete this year so they bought a bunch of over the hill studs - either praying they'd make it thru the year - OR - when they break down - and they will break down - they will trade the rest off to the highest bidder for youth.....


(oh and I didn't mention izturis coming off tommy john surgery)

Yeah, and remember Gagne is coming off a missed year. That's quite a lineup there.
