Greg Maddux has been traded to the Dodgers. No details on what the Padres get in return. (That part scares me a little) But i am glad to have this "old man" back for the stretch. With Penny back on the D.L. we need a pitcher that can give us quality starts (which he still can) and consistently last 7 innings (which he still does) taking some pressure off our over-worked (and showing it) bullpen.
This may or may not get us over the hump. But this along with the acquisitions of Blake and Ramirez sends a message to me that this F.O. is dead serious about the Dodgers aiming to win the pennant this year.
I sure miss Furcal and Saito right about now.
Oh well. Let's see where this line-up takes us! I have quiet optimism.
