For the second time in two days, I'm stunned.

ESPN.com - MLB - Dodgers agree to three-year $47M deal with Schmidt

What is it with the NL West letting their best guys go to division rivals? First the Padres let Dave Roberts go to San Fran, then the Dodgers let Maddux go to San Diego, and now the Giants are letting their ace go to the hated Dodgers? What are these guys thinking?

Regardless, Schmidt's a great signing and he'll be in a pitcher's ballpark, so there should be no excuses for a bad season. But if I were him, I'd wear the old Groucho mustache and glasses disguise when getting back to San Fran, because there's nothing Giants fans hate more than those who defect to Dodger blue.

Well perhaps when they let Maddux go to the Padres the Dodgers were thinking "we're getting Jason Schmidt instead". Sounds like a good move to me.
