Dodgers sign Vicente Padilla
In an attempt to help address our continually-exacerbating starting pitching woes, the Dodgers have signed Vicente Padilla, who was recently released by the Rangers. Padilla is a warm body and can be useful given the situation, but I'd really like to do better than this. For example, I wouldn't mind if we pay a bit of money and rent someone like Aaron Harang. We have not been playing very well lately, and we need to do something about the pitching---especially if we actually want to go far in the postseason. We were coasting for a while, but I definitely don't feel as secure now as I did earlier in the season.
