QUOTE=sir clinksalot;1055647270]Dodgers need to do three things:
1) Pitching, Pitching, Pitching, Pitching, Pitching. At least ... starting pitching. They need an ace. Kershaw will one day be that ace, but not yet. You need a solid veteran who can come in and mentor him. The Dodgers don't have that. Not sure what Pitchers are out there this year but they need to actively pursue a few of them, and quickly.
2) Don't let the drama with the ownership change the day-to-day operations on and off the field. The McCourts, if they care about the team at all will not put the Dodgers in the middle of their legal battles.
3) Dump Manny, Dump Manny, Dump Manny, Dump Manny, Dump Manny. The "TEAM" was MUCH better when he was serving his suspension. The rest of the guys (Ethier, Blake, Loney, etc) found out that they can play and they DID play. Pierre was a great replacement and it was sad to see him and Hudson reduced to role players in the 2nd half of the season when they were such a big part of why they were so good the 1st half. I'm not saying Pierre is going to be an everyday left fielder, so I'd like them to pursue a different one.
