Since the big trade that supposedly ripped the heart and soul out of the Dodgers, they're 10-5 and the Marlins are 6-8. That's a cheap shot, I know; a couple of weeks amounts to a hill of lima beans. It's fair to mention, though, that if the Dodgers' and Marlins' post-trade records were reversed, my colleagues would be typing so hard to write about Paul Lo Duca's leadership and Paul DePodesta's idiocy, they'd break their keyboards.
