    1. 100% in agreement. It seems very much like the Dodgers played it too cute in signing 4 or 5 reclamation projects cheap to fill the bullpen and should have signed or traded for a healthy superstar to be the closer or set up man.

      In fact, the Dodgers knew they had 6-8 bona fide starters. Why not trade a starter for a star reliever?
