Both Jay Jaffe and Jon Weisman wonder if everything was indeed kosher with the Angels' aquisition of superduperstar Vlad Guerrero. One thing is for sure: The move has to been seen as a slap in the face to the Dodger organization. Here is Tommy Lasorda in the L.A. Times:
"I'm very impressed with what they've done," he said. "They're gonna have a lot to say about who wins their division. That's the good thing about free agency, you can go out and get players you need."

Lasorda shrugged and winced, a silence that spoke volumes.
