When isn't KC out of it by this point every year? I'll be shocked if Grienke isn't on the trade block in time for next year's deadline.
The Dodgers going for Podsednik makes me wonder if they're ready to pull the plug on Manny for good. This is around the time that Manny's deferred payment situation really comes back to bite the Dodgers, just because Manny's in full "dogging it" mode, knowing he's out of town at the end of the year and the team's still on the hook to pay him through 2014.
The Padres won't be able to get away with one good month. The key is they will have to prove they can win inside the division. Their horrible stretch in April came against Colorado, Arizona and the stinking Dodgers. That won't do.
