Karros and Stick

I like the Dodgers’ deal yesterday; dumping Karros, who’s washed-up, and Grudzelanik (you spell it), who’s mediocre at best, shows a real commitment to not standing pat. They need a plan B, though, if they can’t sign free agents for the open slots, and at second in particular I’m not sure they have one. Of course, there are two big-time second basemen on the market – Kent and Alfonzo – and they can always bring in Fred McGriff to play first if Cliff Floyd isn’t available.
The Hated Yankees, meanwhile, seem to be closing in on re-signing Robin Ventura, which relieves me greatly; I was starting to worry that they might be in the hunt for Alfonzo, which would really turn the knife into Mets fans.
