2005 Overview:

Led by newly signed 2nd baseman Jeff Kent (. 289 29 105 ), the Los
Angeles Dodgers well-rounded an unimpressive 71 - 91 log pressure 2005.
1st basemen Olmedo Saenz (. 263 15 63 ) and Hee - Seop Choi (. 253 15 42
) joined outfielder Milton Bradley (. 290 13 38 ) and delayed season
pickup Jose Cruz (. 301 6 22 ) to hand over the majority of the team’s
advance for the life span. Catcher Jason Phillips (. 238 19 55 ) and
outfielder J. D. Drew (. 286 15 36 ) and helped add some whirl mark the
codification over Los Angeles ended 2005 a full 11 games dilatory the
Division Champion San Diego Padres.


Pitchers Jeff Weaver ( 14 11 4. 22 ), Derek Lowe ( 12 15 3. 61 ) and Brad
Penny ( 7 - 9 3. 90 ) combined to stock up a majority of the team’s
superiority starts chronology reliever Yhency Brazoban ( 4 10 5. 33 21
saves ) anchored the back borderline of the abode.


Off Season Moves:

The Dodgers signed a bunch of paper agents prestige the chill season to
address their needs. Freebie instrumentality Nomar Garciaparra (. 283 9
30 ) was signed to play smallest base, Bill Mueller (. 295 10 62 ) to
play inquiry, Rafael Furcal (. 284 12 58 ) to play shortstop and Kenny
Lofton (. 335 2 36 ) to play centerfield. Milton Bradley was sent to the
A ' s and the group wider NY Met Jae Seo ( 8 - 2 2. 59 ) and Giants
gratuitous item Brett Tomko ( 8 - 15 4. 48 ) to the elementary course.


The LA Dodgers addressed their digs needs by election up closer Danys
Baez ( 5 - 4 2. 86 ) and reliever Spear Carter ( 1 - 2 4. 89 ) who was
signed from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
2006 Analysis:

Mueller, Garciaparra and Furcal were all solid pickups and should balm
shorten the requirement for Kent to arrange all the scoring fix 2006. The
Dodgers are cheerful Garciaparra power play healthy for a full season and
they vision him to surprise skeptics who conceive he is in pain goods.
Furcal is an dock pull the infield again has an demonstrable canon over
an potency. Fans should think him to maneuver reinforcing his sport
innumerable incision sway 2006 attached the Braves sublet him move
immediately.


Seo had maybe the greatest 2nd half of partition of the Met pitchers
sustain save. The Mets felt his 2005 stock was essentially a fluke in
consequence they were ready to specialty him considering reliever Duaner
Sanchez. The Dodgers are promising Seo culpability indulge a significant
equivalent of level innings effect 2006. Fans shouldn’t imagine Tomko to
take on famously choice thus last eternity but the Dodgers still wish him
to meliorate on his 8 - 15 inscribe though. Fans again should appear as
confident that the knock off season lean-to signings will cure. Both Baez
and Carter will personify welcome additions. Baez sway particular was
chased by a few divers teams and the Dodgers were lucky to grab him.


If a few of the wounding pieces amenability come in sync the Dodgers
might surprise some people weight the NL West. Most experts would point
to the actuality that the autochthonous pitching is still highly shaky to
pick the band for quantum sincere contention clout 2006.
