Yup- I wonder who's going to take Billingsley's place- probably Beckett for now I suppose. Hopefully he gives up more of a chance to win than Blanton, though I don't have high expectations.

The new Dodger ownership is really something- we're definitely the Yankees of the west now. I'm curious what will happen in the offseason too- wouldn't be surprised to see us offer out more huge contracts to big name free agents.

I'm thinking the same thing regarding Beckett as well Dave. All I can hope is that pitching in the NL will help him out, as it's an easier league to pitch in. Only 2 games back of SF, and we play them 6 more times I think too, so Beckett could prove to be important for us.

With what Dodgers ownership has done via trades, it almost makes signing FA kind of boring, lol since they just need to open up their checkbook. Hopefully we can pound on the Rockies, and gain more ground on the Giants. Still kind of hard to believe that Dre is our #6 hitter right now.

^^Lol yeah Jeff I was thinking the same thing- Ethier as the #6 hitter. I mean he's be a staple at the #3 or 4 spot for so many years. It just so happens Mattingly wants to alternate the righties and the lefties in the lineup. I would like to see him bat second and see how that goes.

Hmm having Dre hit 2nd is interesting. If I remember correctly, he hit in front of Manny in 08, and was solid. Plus we'd still have the left/right mixture that Donnie wants.

I'm hoping Kemp will be able to settle down a bit. Seems like he's been pressing a bit at the plate since the Gonzalez deal went down. Let's hope our big bats can start clicking, since we will probably have to rely on our hitters to win us games the days Kershaw isn't pitching.

Whatever happens the rest of this season, I still think our main focus should be starting pitching in the off-season.
