We trade Boom Boom Betemit, a young power hitting infielder and sign Boomer, a 44 year old pitcher who was released by our competitors.
For years I wanted Boomer in a Dodger uniform. I always thought he'd be a great fit in Dodger Stadium, I just didn't expect to get him when he was 44.
Somehow I expect that Depodesta knew if they released Boomer that we would sign him. He should have ample opportunity to pitch against the Padres so we can see how that works out.
