The Dodgers trading of Guillermo Mota and Paul LoDuca is coming back to bite them in the behind:

Since handing the bullpen setup role to Darren Dreifort, he has proceeded to give victory to the opponent no less than 3 times in recent days: the first being the day after the trade when the Padres staged a late rally, the second last week when the Reds came back, and the most recent, last night at Chavez Ravine when the "Gas Can" handed victory to the Marlins with two runs, two hits, three walks, and a wild pitch in two/thirds of an inning.

Also, Brad Penny is on the 15-day disabled list.

The allegedly "highly touted" rookie GM of the Dodgers, Paul DePodesta, is rapidly making recent GM's Fred Claire and Kevin Malone look like genius's.

PS: Great to see the Dodger fans welcome back the departed trio:
From http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/la/news/la_gameday_recap.jsp?ymd=20040816&content_id=829724&vkey=recap&fext=.jsp :

Lo Duca received a lengthy standing ovation from a sellout crowd of 53,121 as he stepped to the plate in the first inning. He acknowledged the cheers, taking off his helmet and thrusting it skyward. When he attempted to dig in to face Weaver, the fans bellowed louder, and he backed out of the batter's box.

Whereas Lo Duca, Encarnacion and Guillermo Mota were warmly received by Dodgers fans, Dreifort left the field to a chorus of boos.

Best news of the season for L.A. Double D has a torn ACL and is out for the season. That was about the only thing that could have put that arsinists flames out.

Hadn't gotten wind of that yet, KROC. (Haven't seen the paper today, and Rome is still 10 minutes away).

Just checked http://losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/la/news/la_news.jsp?ymd=20040817&content_id=830406&vkey=news_la&fext=.jsp .

While I wouldn't wish an ACL injury on anyone, DD did have issues, and he definitely was not an acceptable replacement for Guillermo Mota.

BTW, that trade sucked when it went down, and it's gotten progressively worse ever since.
