If You Sign Scott Podsednik, You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

Yesterday, Tony Jackson of ESPN Los Angeles reported the Dodgers had narrowed their 2011 left field options down to two choices:

The team's search for a left fielder, according to a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity, has been narrowed to two players: Bill Hall and Scott Podsednik, with a strong preference for Hall because he is a right-handed hitter.

Today, Hall has reportedly signed with the Houston Astros, per Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, on a one-year, $3 million deal with a mutual option for 2012. That would leave the Dodgers with just one choice.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudge...only I didn't say fudge.

Don't do it, Ned.

There is nothing Podsednik brings to the table that a hybrid of Tony Gwynn Jr., Jay Gibbons, Xavier Paul, and/or Jamie Hoffmann can't match. Christmas shopping season is over.
