Thome doesn't make a ton of sense for the Dodgers. We have an everyday first baseman in James Loney...I guess he'll be a power left hand bat off the bench? I would have bet Thome would have gone to an AL team for sure.
The Dodgers acquired Garland tonight too. I'm a little more excited about that move.
Dodgers DO need a LOT of help. They've been not so good since the All Star Break, but are they expecting him to lay every game at 1st? Um....about that....
They are something close to 28-23 since July 1st, not what they were prior to that but still good for the second(Virtual tie with the Angels) best record in baseball.
I don't get the Thome deal either, they said they wanted a big bat off the bench but don't see him playing that role, I don't want Loney sitting that often either. Though Loney has been off a bit lately.
