Do The Dodgers Have The Best Postseason Offense?
Sal Baxamusa thinks so:
A Dodger lineup consisting of Rafael Furcal, Russell Martin, Manny Ramirez, Andre Ethier, James Loney, Matt Kemp, Casey Blake, Blake Dewitt, and some random pitcher will score something like 5.18 runs per game. That figure is the result of current Marcel projections for each those players, assuming an average-hitting pitcher for two plate appearances, and a league-average pinch-hitter for two more.I would have to disagree with him; for one thing, there is just now way that Rafael Furcal will be available, or if he is, that he will be especially good (he's scarcely seen enough pitching to have a clue). But they're a lot better than they were pre-Manny.
