Another Off-Blog Response

My friend Jeff says "DePo had better pull off this Green-Johnson-Vasquez deal, or do
something else with similar impact, soon -- not just for the Dodgers, but for his own reputation."

This is true, but I use it only to illustrate the larger point that we shouldn't give up on the "What" of the deal -- in other words, "What purpose does this deal serve?" I am getting the idea that DePodesta has not proven his worth as a GM simply because he hasn't signed anyone to a triple-digit million contract. We ran Kevin Malone OUT OF TOWN AND OUT OF BASEBALL, doesn't anyone remember this?

We will know whether this is was a good decision somewhere around 2009. Check back then. In the meantime, Happy Holidays. Eat some pie.
