Dodgers - Signed Luis Gonzalez
Los Angeles Dodgers - Signed OF Luis Gonzalez to a 1-year contract worth $7 million.
Well, after a nice signing of Jason Schmidt, Colletti decides to instantly cash in on the miniscule amount of karma he accrued and instead figure out how to block Loney and Kemp more effectively. Sure, it’s only a year, but what good does being in Las Vegas do for Loney or the Dodgers? He hit .380 against AAA pitchers - it’s a waste of his time. After a promising start, Kemp had a stretch in which struggled against major league pitching. Now, instead of making adjustments against major leaguers, he gets to beat up on AAA pitchers some more - is hitting .388 instead of .368 against Adrian Burnside and Kevin Jarvis going to teach him to hit against Brandon Webb or Chris Carpenter? Not a ####### chance. The Dodgers blocked one with the Nomar signing, now they’re blocking both. The Dodgers signed Luis Gonzalez despite his very public delusions that he’s an Important Starting Outfielder and they fired DePo in part because of the Bradley/Kent clubhouse friction. Unless Gonzalez hits truly horribly, something along the lines of 220/300/300 or so, he’s going to be starting in left.
I do thank Colletti from signing Gonzalez as it keeps the Orioles from doing that.
