What they need right now is to move on from the Abreus, Uribes, and Riveras of the world....and get a real bat to fill the 4-5 slot.

Something young and long term.

Also, for the love of god the Loney experiment has to be over. The guy is great defensively but he couldn't hit if he was thrown a beach ball.

I'm not at all worried about the future of the Dodgers. They have plenty of youth. I am worried about right now.

The pitching looks fine but they are just a seriously weak hitting lineup with very little speed on the paths with guys like Rivera, Abreu, Loney and Uribe in the lineup. If you can't hit for **** you got to be able to run. Aside from Gordon, Gwynn and Herrera the Dodgers have zero speed.
The only real prospects they have are Zach Lee, Chris Reed, Withrow and maybe Martin. Only Lee cracks baseball america's top 75 prospects. The only position players they have that are interesting are all 25 years old and dominating in a hitters paradise.
