Ugh, he was on the top of the Mariners list. :-[

At least we're still after Hudson.

What happens to Kuo?

He's still there which is probably why there is speculation that Penny will be traded for a bat.


Kuo is also questionable as far as durability is concerned. Question marks on Wolf as well as Schmidt and Penny.

You can't blame Schmidt for taking a deal like that.

I think SEA was hoping for a little bit of a home team discount but not now.

i agree with the idea that penny will be traded for another bat in the lineup.
the dodgers said their priority was to get a big bat but they've seemed to do the exact opposite. with the signing of schmidt, it allows them to trade and arm for a bat.
i can see schmidt putting up some pretty nice number with the dodgers next season.

It's a good thing Schmidt went to LA considering his propensity to give up more flyballs at this stage in his career and deteriorating skills.

I think he will be good enough the first couple of years but after that, it's a crapshoot.

oops I thought it was a 4 year deal... yes for 3 years this seems to be a good deal.

Honestly for 3/$47M I don't want him. :-t

I also don't want to touch Huddy with a ten foot pole. :-t :-o
