We're Out Of Camembert -- How About Some Cheez Whiz?

You can tell the Dodgers are in desperation mode. Without any major-league-ready hitters in their farm system (sorry, Jon, Loney doesn't count -- yet), the PR machine has started talking up pitching coach Jim Colborn, and trotting out the ol' Dodger Way smoke and mirrors (hey, at least they had great pitching last year). Now it's working on prospect Andrew Brown, a guy nobody's ever heard of before and who hasn't been on any hot lists insofar as I know.
"I think when you talk about [Jackson, Miller, and Hanrahan], you've got to throw (Andrew Brown's) name in the mix also," Tracy said.

Brown, 23, hasn't gained as much notoriety as the other three, in part because he pitched only one inning the entire 2003 season.

... and now, of course, that he's put up three goose eggs in the Grapefruit League and three more in the minors, other teams are just salivating to have him on their rosters, somehow forgetting the last two years he spent on the DL, and the fact that his minor league record pre-injury wasn't all that:
He went 3-4 with a 3.92 ERA in 2001 for the Atlanta Braves' Class A affiliate in Jamestown, N.Y., then was 10-10 with a 4.11 ERA for Vero Beach in 2002 after being included in the Gary Sheffield-Odalis Perez trade.
Man, Tracy, you really need to ditch your jersey and get a loud, ugly plaid jacket if you're gonna start selling used cars...
