The Dodgers are looking for cheap pitching

Jul 7, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

Evan Drellich of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers have been calling all over the place for pitching, contacting the Mariners, Astros, Blue Jays, Indians and D’Backs.

One wonders what kind of pitching they’re really looking for given multiple reports that they’re not able to take on any salary at all, what with them being a small market team with poor attendance in a crappy stadium and everything.  Buster Olney recently passed along word that the Dodgers wouldn’t even be able to take on “middling money” at the trading deadline.

Not that there’s anyhing wrong with picking up guys off the scrap heap. After all, Vicente Padilla struck out nine dudes and got the win in last night’s game.  It’s just not the most inspiring thing in the world for a team that needs to work in order to fight off the Rockies and catch the Padres.

    It should be a hoot watching the Bums skulljacking and searching the matrix for cheap pitching and running into a couple of bolts of black ice from the Feesh computers deep in the bowels of Joeprodolsharklife Stadium. Lay off that cheap pitching, Rasputin, or whatever your name is. Scrooge McLoria has dibs on it.

    Heh heh, sorry. I was up late rereading William Gibson’s Neuromancer trilogy last night. It tends to carry over into reality as we know it – or maybe reality as we know it tends to carry over into the Gibsonverse. Anyway, all your questions can be answered here: http://www.amazon.com/Sprawl-Trilogy-Neuromancer-Tessier-Ashpool-Overdrive/dp/115577504X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1278525710&sr=1-1
