Dodgers still need OF, interested in Thames

If the Dodgers were certain that Tony Gwynn Jr. could hit, they might not worry about adding another outfielder.

But they're not sure, so they've continued to look, and right now sources say that Marcus Thames is the one they're interested in. In fact, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday night that the Dodgers expect to sign Thames on Tuesday.

Thames, who spent last year with the Yankees, has good power and a strong track record against left-handed pitching. He's not a good defensive outfielder, though.

Gwynn is a good defensive outfielder, so good that the Dodgers would likely play him in center field and move Matt Kemp to a corner spot -- what does it tell you about Kemp that the Dodgers would happily move him off center field two years after he won a Gold Glove there?

But unlike his famous father, Gwynn Jr. has yet to prove he can hit in the big leagues. He hit just .204 last year with the Padres, and his career average in more than 1,000 at-bats is only .244.

The Dodgers had been interested in re-signing Scott Podsednik earlier in the winter, but they didn't like the amount of money he was seeking, and they moved on (although Podsednik still hasn't signed with anyone).

Oh come on! this is not solution to dodgers outfield. His lifetime BA is 250 and most RBI is 60. this would be a bad decision from dodgers management.
