The article presents information related to the baseball team Los Angeles Dodgers. Ned Colletti overpaid for Rafael Furcal to get a legitimate leadoff hitter, pulled a surprise by resurrecting Grady Little as manager, stabilized third base with Bill Mueller and found protection for Jeff Kent by signing Nomar Garciaparra. The infield must produce because the outfield is dependent on the dubious hope J.D. Drew and Jayson Werth can stay healthy.
