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.

"That's the thing: Maybe he'll be up and down this season, but when he's up, is there another center in the league quite like him? He protects the rim, passes out of double teams, has great hands around the basket, up-fakes on his jump-hooks, rebounds in traffic, even has a motor that keeps going and going (unlike a stiff like Eddy Curry). I'm not sure what's missing here. This is stunning. This is startling. There's almost no precedent for it. Just what the Lakers needed: More obscenely good luck. Meanwhile, I have to watch Al Jefferson whip jump-hooks off the front of the rim for the third straight season. I will now pour scalding hot water down my pants."

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.

You know, I can't believe I'm about to say it, but I WANT there to be a strike. I want it to go on and on until both sides finally realize how flawed the game really is. That's the only way they're ever going to fix it.
