The Dodgers have been busy lately. They have locked up their young players to one or two year deals. They have been "spending money" on guys they already had. They signed Vincente Padilla today for just over $5 million for one year. This did address one issue.
Unfortunately they still are short a legitimate major league ready second baseman and they need another starter. Word is, though, that they are done spending. I hope this is just a negotiation ploy because they really need another starter.
Despite all this activity, they still haven't really plugged many holes. As John Wooden said, "Never mistake activity for achievement."
