No joy in L.A.?

Now I'll never admit to being a huge L.A. Dodgers fan, so maybe there's something I'm missing here. But should this go through (and there's minimal reason to think it won't at this point)....

The Dodgers will lose starters Kaz Ishii and Brad Penny, 1B Shawn Green and reliever Yhency Brazoban. They've already lost '04 MVP candidate Adrian Beltre. They would get Javier Vazquez, who's already rumored to be going to the White Sox for Paul Konerko and maybe another bat or two, a submarine reliever in Mike Koplove, and Yankees prospects at 3B and Catcher.

So this leaves the Dodgers without two of their strongest run producers, and a starting rotation consisting of Hideo Nomo, Jeff Weaver....and? Am I missing something here, or are Paul DePodesta and Frank McCourt lost their minds?

i believe they are trying to free up money to go after a big bat (likely j.d. drew) and an arm (milton or one of the others). that's why depodesta had been waffling a bit ... they weren't willing to accept the deal unless they had other moves ready to go.

and now it seems like it's off again. DePodesta is holding it up. Maybe he's not such a pushover after all....
