The article focuses on offseason moves in baseball that deserve more attention than they have got. One is the move of C Paul Lo Duca to the New York Mets. Pedro Martinez gave the club a heart. If Lo Duca can provide the soul, maybe New York's other team still will have a pulse come the postseason. Another is the move of 2B Mark Loretta to the Boston Red Sox. Another is the move of J.C. Romero to the Anaheim Angels. Los Angeles needed a top-notch lefthanded reliever. Romero wanted out of Minnesota. These two problems had one solution.
