Vast overpay IMHO. Either is one of the most overrated players in baseball.
So are the Dodgers for real here or what? Vin Scully just mentioned that Ethier is in a slump and obviously they don't have Kemp, yet they're still winning. SF is right on their ass, and the Dbacks should be far more scary when/if Upton and Young get the bats going again.
Look at their lineup and I think you'll get your answer. My hatred for the Dodgers aside, they have vastly over performed and will come crashing down to earth like the meteor from FF7 anytime now. Think Pirates from last year. Their pitching is OK but when you have Bobby Abreu batting 4th, Jerry Hairston battin 5th, some guy named Elian Herrera batting 2nd you just can't keep it up.
