Steps to Fix the Dodgers (Part I)   Leave a comment

I want to start a series aimed at fixing the Dodgers. Obviously, the first two steps are buying out Frank and Jamie McCourt and firing Ned Coletti, then replacing him with Logan White as the new General Manager. However, once that happens, there are still numerous steps the Dodgers must take in order to get back into contention–not just for next year, but for many years to come.

First, the Dodgers need to sell off their overvalued assets. Exhibit A: Manny Ramirez. There are rumors that the White Sox are seriously interested, which would create a potentially awesome outfield scenario of three ex-Dodgers: Ramirez, Juan Pierre, and Andruw Jones. But, once we trade Manny, who do we get back? The Dodgers have several needs, but I am a firm believer in getting the best possible players regardless of position, unless they are Major League ready.

Here are two packages I think the Dodgers can get back from the White Sox, especially if the Dodgers are willing to pick up the rest of Manny’s salary this year.

Scenario 1:
– Justin Greene, CF, 24 years old (AA and A ball): .281 AVG/.348 OBP/.831 OPS, 12 HR, 21 2B, 12 3B, 23 SB, 120/35 K/BB, 68 R, 64 RBI
– Santos Rodriguez, LHP (reliever), 22 years old (A ball): 3.57 ERA, 40.1 IP, 59 K/32 BB, .193 BAA
–  Terry Doyle, RHP (starter), 24 years old (A ball, regular and advanced): 2.76 ERA, 156.1 IP, 148 K/44BB, .225 BAA

Scenario 2:
– Jon Gilmore, 3B, 22 years old (A ball): .316 AVG/.353 OBP/.748 OPS, 4 HR, 21 2B, 78/31 SO/BB, 74 R, 71 RBI
– Dan Remenowsky, RHP (reliever), 24 years old (A ball): 2.75 ERA, 39.1 IP, 60 K/13 BB, .236 BAA
– Santos Rodriguez, LHP (reliever), 22 years old (A ball): 3.57 ERA, 40.1 IP, 59 K/32 BB, .193 BAA
