  • The 2005 Dodger Offseason Thread

    I thought I'd start this thread to keep track of all the moves that DePodesta will do to "improve" the team.

    Carrara, Wunsch opt for free agency

    Keep Wunsch, dump Carrara. That's all I have to say.

    new seats for dodger stadium

    "The Dodgers plan to tear out every seat in the ballpark this winter and replace them with new seats in pastel shades — sky blue, turquoise, light orange and yellow — that evoke the original look of Dodger Stadium."

    old-school is cool. but replacing "aisle" for "section" i think is just plain horrible.
    isn't dodger stadium the only yard to use that term?

    here is the story on the new seats.

        Update:

        Dodgers sign Cruz to an extension

        Colletti next GM candidate for Dodgers

        It's official. McCourt does not know anything about Dodger tradition.

              Dodgers talk trade with Marlins

              Great. The last thing we need is to revive the LoDuca debate.

                    Only if Colletti can work out a contract extension. Zito will be a free agent at the end of 2006.

                      By trading for him we can get him for alot cheaper than if he goes on the open market

                        Yeah, but I don't want to lose some prospects for a potential one-year rental.

                          Zito with the Dodgers would be perfect. He'll be a big fan favorite. He is home. He is a winner and would be nasty at Chavez Ravine. I doubt they would trade for him unless a contract extension was worked out. Look what the Braves gave up for Hudson. If he could package Choi it would be perfect
