I think it's close, but i think the Dodgers are better.
I think I'll take the team that trots out Trout, Pujols, and Hamilton everyday.
People are dissing Billingsley.
Depth of Lilly/Capuano/Harang for now
Lakers, Dodgers, Kings
Bring Back the Los Angeles Rams
And you won't take a team with better starting pitching/relieve than the angels.. and don't discount Kemp/Gonzalez/Crawford/ethier/Ramirez there no joke could be as good or better line up than the angelsOriginally Posted by Greedy22:24721872

I think the Dodgers are a better team but this move by the Angels likely puts them into the playoffs next year although I am skeptical on their starting pitching. They pretty much eliminated Texas from contention with this move alone. Texas has gotten screwed here this offseason by both the LA teams lol. Unless they pull a rabbit out of the hat that is. The Angel's offense is going to be loaded in the middle of the order but the Dodgers certainly are not far behind in that category with Kemp,Gonzo,Hanley,Ethier in the middle of the order. I still think the Dodgers will upgrade the infield further with the surplus of pitching we have. When the best starters in Lohse and Sanchez sign, I think the trading market will start to move quickly and its obvious the Dodgers have a few starters they could trade for some decent players. The Dodgers are going to have a tougher road with the Giants obviously but on paper I think our starting pitching is superior to the Angels currently hands down. Though that doesn't necessarily mean we are a playoff team. Again, the Angels might have put themselves into the playoffs with this move and in the playoffs its a crapshoot anyways in the first round mainly. I doubt either LA team is done making moves though. Ill revisit this when all is said and done.

The dodgers have the Better team on paper but I honestly don't think that means anything. Ill take that true murderers row in Anaheim.
