LA Dodgers Short Cut No Yellow Brick Road

They made a blockbuster trade that had all the
makings of stealing the pennant from the Giants,
winning the National League, and swooping in on
a World Series title for a franchise that has
as much history as just about any royal family
in the baseball world, but it had a chance at
being a total flop too.

The verdict isn't completely in, but the Dodgers
gambled and as of right now, I'm gonna say they
lost. Yes they are only two games out of the
last NL wildcard spot, but they have failed
miserably in their attempt to gain any ground
on their longtime nemesis San Francisco Giants,
and have dropped to seven and half games behind
them for the first place spot in the NL West.

Though the Dodgers are now saying that this trade
for Beckett, Gonzalez, Crawford and co. is for
their future as much as it is to make a run this
year, it sure looked like a team that was hoping
for a bigger more immediate payout when the trade
was made. Maybe they were looking for the Wizard.
