Results Will Sway Choices

Times Staff Writer

General Manager Paul DePodesta said he still planned to be active before the July 31 trading deadline, but the team’s performance this week might change his thinking.

“I said earlier that we would be aggressive if we were in contention, but we haven’t played well in this stretch,” DePodesta said. “If we lose six in a row again, that could change our approach [toward the trade deadline].”

So, if the Dodgers continued to struggle, would DePodesta become a seller instead of a buyer?

“We’re reaching the point where we have to make some decisions as an organization,” he said. “How the team is playing will be a big factor in that.”
