The Dodgers have the worst outfield in baseball

Sep 8, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

That’s the assessment of Steve Dilbeck of the L.A. Times. He certainly has a point if you focus –as he does — on the second half production of Kemp, Ethier and Scott Podsednik. It’s been pretty brutal.  I know Podsednik wasn’t part of that crew before the season began, but it’s quite something to see a squad that was arguably the best in all of baseball now make a legitimate case for being the worst.

The most astonishing part of all of this is that they haven’t improved since Manny Ramirez left.  All of the big time national writers who are supposed to know everything told me that he was the problem and that the Dodgers would be better off without him.  Funny how that didn’t happen.

    Yeah, they’d be better now that the outfield is centered around the #1 team player Matt Kemp. This isn’t football, you don’t need to be a team player. Just hit the ball.

    On the bright side (for those of us that dislike the Dodgers) their outfield defense has been god awful too.

    I didn’t realize Podsednik had fallen off from earlier in the year. Looks like the Royals did well this year getting rid of older guys who were overdue for pumpkinization.

    What about that young guy?? what’s his name??? ogre? no… Sloth! Yeah, what happened to sloth? he’s got one hell of an arm and is a pretty good fielder. From what i’ve seen anyway.
