Completely agree, no depth in the farm. Rotation and bullpen is solid, but the everyday lineup is riddled with holes.
I don't care how much money you have, if a player/position is not available, you're SOL. Proven by having to re-sign Uribe to man 3rd. He had a solid 2013 by his standards and stepped up in the playoffs, but not enough to forget his 2011-2012 campaigns. I'm sure the powers that be wanted to upgrade at that position, unfortunately, no one is available.
Injury wise, Kemp and Hanley are major liabilities. If those guys are out, this team sputters, Puig is a spark plug but not ready to carry any type of team or responsibility at this point. If Kemp is out, you have no CF'er, and two guys on the decline playing the corners. On top of that, the two guys playing the corners can't hit lefties to save their life.
I chuckled when I saw the list,
I tell everyone, the incredible run they had from July to August made everyone forget about April-June and September. The one silver lining is that if the Dodgers miss the playoffs, which is a possibility the way the team stands at this point, Ned Colletti will take the fall... FINALLY!
