What's Going On In Dodgerland?

First, Jeff Kent rips the kids for lack of "professionalism" and not knowing how to "manufacture runs"

Kemp and Loney fire back.  "Who said he was a leader?" and "Where would this team be without the young players."  

Grady Little just sits there and looks befuddled.

Seems to me, without Kemp, Ethier, Loney and Martin, the Dodgers would be challenging the Giants for last place.  

Kent has played well, but was hurt during a key stretch.

Veterans Pierre, Furcal, Garciaparra and Gonzalez have contributed virtually nothing.

The achilles heal of the team, which has nothing to do with any of this, is the pitching.  Even here, Billingsley has tried to be the savior, but the Dodgers don't have the kind of farm depth at pitcher that they do in position players.  You just can't lose, or get meltdown performances from Schmidt, Wolf, Tomko, Hendrickson, Kuo, and now even Lowe, replace them with Wells and Loiza and expect to compete for a playoff spot.

Should Jeff Kent be a Dodger next year?
