    The Dodgers used to have a monopoly on the Rookie of the Year award; 5 in a row ’92 to ’96, and 4 in a row ’79 to ’82. Now they trade their best prospects for guys like Josh Beckett.

      So dumb of them to trade Zack Lee (their highest-rated prospect) and Yasiel Puig (their best prospect in reality) for guys like Josh Beckett. Oh, wait…

      They traded good prospects (not their best) for Gonzalez and Crawford. Beckett was the price of doing business.

      But yeah, “Beat LA!”

    Obviously I wasn’t happy when my guys headed into L.A. just in time to see this guy wreck two games for us, especially since he’s successful now because no one has a good pitching strategy against him, yet. Let’s see how he adapts when pitchers know more about him.

    Definitely a great defensive player and an awesome arm, either way. Still, he plays for the Dodgers, which means I hate him :)

    Beckett is really lazy.
