As our Dodgers are currently constructed, I don't believe we have enough offensive firepower to do any damage in the playoffs.
Aside from the disabled Matt Kemp, and Andre Ethier, there isn't another player on this team who is a threat to hit 15HRs.
We have virtually no power from the corner infield positions. Most teams have power at both, we have it at neither.
We must find a 1B or 3B with power. Our pitching will only take us so far.
Two straight offseasons, we could have landed a power hitting 1B. Adam Dunn in the 2010 offseason, and Prince Fielder this past offseason. However, no attempt was made at Dunn, and Fielder generated only mild interest from our Dodgers.
Let's be realistic, the James Loney experiment is a failure. The guy gets hot every now and then, but he just can not hit for the power needed for a 1B.
Juan Uribe is oft-injured, and he too has very little pop. At this point in the season, I'm guessing, but I believe we have a combined 3HR from our corner infielders, and that my friends will not get it done..
We Need a Bat!
