After a rather disappointing start to the season the Los Angeles Dodgers have stormed up the standings in the month of June and are currently tied for first with the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers have won 10 out of their last 13 and are poised for a deeper playoff run this upcoming October.

Their starting rotation has been lights out, with the return of Clayton Kershaw helping them mightily. Additionally, the resurgence of Josh Beckett and Dan Haren has shored up their rotation with not one starter being a true end of the rotation player.

Offensively the Dodgers have been pretty solid scoring the 4th most runs in the National League up to this point of the season. Yasiel Puig is having an MVP-like season and with him playing everyday the Dodgers will always have youth and energy asserted into the lineup. However they have some areas to improve upon and will have a glut of outfielders when Carl Crawford returns from the DL.

    We don’t need Price at the expense of 2/3 of best prospects, the dodgers for years had one of the best minor league systems in all baseball, no one comes close to having as many ROYs, but the last few owners raped it, finally now when it is coming back is not the time too rape again

  • Richard F.

    I think we need Price. Haren has been up and down, Beckett(now on DL) has been on the DL 16times in 14 years.He is also a FA at the end of the year along with Haren. Also Guerrero has no place to play and his best position would seem to be DH. Therefore I propose a trade of Price and McGee to the Dodgers for Guerrero, Pedersen, Lee, Anderson or Reed, plus 2 mid-level specs. Greinke has an opt-out clause after next year.

  • Richard F.

    Then eat the money and get rid of Perez, Maholm and Wilson(players option for next year). It would help the BP and Starting Rotation.

  • Richard F.

    The goal is to get to the WS by winning the playoffs and a rotation of Kershaw, Greinke, Price and Ryu would be the best in baseball. We don’t need a 5th starter for the playoffs or possibly even for the WS.
