So the Dodgers have rebuilt the left side of their infield by obtaining Mike Blowers and Greg Gagne. Are these the missing pieces to a championship season? I doubt it.
This appears to be a case of making moves for the sake of making moves. Blowers and Gagne do address the needs at third and short but do not improve the team other than a little bit defensively. Are championships won with a .258-hitting third baseman coming off his best year or a .254-hitting shortstop? We might be able to sacrifice one batting spot for a defensive specialist but not two.
