How about getting Row Oswalt to the Dodger blue?
I am an Oakland Raider's writer here on Bleacher Report, but I am also an avid Dodgers fans, living in Southern California. However, before their winning streak, I would read the LA times every night and see bad pitching. Billingsley and Kershaw have done well, and so has Kuroda. This new Ely dude has done good, and That other dude with the knuckleball had 10 strikeouts one game. Now, I don't play baseball; never have. All that I am saying is that Ned Colletti has to use his brain and learn from the past.
If you have Padilla as your opening day starter, then you have a problem. He is a good pitcher, but will never be an ace. We screwed up the last 2 years by not getting Halladay or Cliff Lee. Now, we cannot let this opportunity pass us a 3rd time. Oswalt will be cheaper; this is your time Ned! Go get us a much needed ace. If we get him, I don't see a reason why we can't get deep into the playoffs! Billingsley can't handle the ace status. He melted down last season. Kershaw isn' there yet, and Kuroda and Padilla will never be. If we get Oswalt, we will be set!
Learn from your mistake Ned! Push us over the top! Go Dodgers!
