Dodgers Has the Blockbuster Deal for the Los Angeles Dodgers Failed Yet?

Quote:
Is it still way too early to talk about if the deal between the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angels Dodgers has failed? Yes, it is. With still so many years left to go on players contracts, there is still a lot of time left for the Dodgers to prove they got the better end of the deal.

But, has it failed yet for this season? We do not know how the trade will work out five years from now, but when the Dodgers made the huge deal in late August, they were favorites to pull away with the NL West.

The San Francisco Giants were hit hard with the news that they were losing Melky Cabrera due to a suspension for testing positive for high levels of testosterone. The Dodgers added another big bat to their roster in Adrian Gonzalez. Before the trade deadline the Dodgers also acquired Hanley Ramirez and Shane Victorino. With all the new additions, and the Giants losing their best hitter, it seemed like a shoe in the Dodgers would take the division.

Not yet. The Dodgers are still in the thick of things for that second wild card spot. If they miss the playoffs then you could call it a failure. If they make the playoffs and don't win the World Series then I guess even then it's a failure in its own right. Right now it's premature to say it has failed.

I was talking about strictly this season. Only player that has done something from that trade is Beckett. They have go no production out of the biggest piece. And they are paying him a boatload.

I think so. I thought it would. That many players can't adjust to each other in just a day or a week.
