It will be a CRIME, if Andrew Jones is on the playoff roster over someone who contributed to where the team is now ! For example Blake Dewitt, a rookie, has moved from 3rd to 2nd base effortlessly, had some big hits, and deserves to be on this team ! What has Jones done, sucked up $18million dollars and batted .166!

They need to keep KENT OFF THE ROSTER. 8 gams Kent has not been in the club house and dodgers win 8 straight, see a pattern?

the team has been doing better than with jones's automatic out slot.....and it sucks that someone else would have to sit because of him.....and looney....the jeckle/hyde....hasn't he been given enough slack to make a player out of him...he should have been sent down like dewitt...dewitt is a more consistant player but he basks in the sun in the minors while looney continues his intermittent play and batting clean up.......what a waste...he can't even hit the ball for a clean-up person....and what about martin......is leadoff too much of a chore for him?? and kent....he's the problem in the dugout?? i don't see one person ruining a whole team......you get paid to do a job...do the job...don't blame someone else for your shortcomings
