Freeway Series?

Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated seems to think so. Not really buying the argument for the Dodgers, though. They have the kids, but count on way too many veterans. The Padres would seem like a more logical choice, and more in-line with his own argument about aging ball players. The Padres do have a lot of kids, and a knack for knocking off the Dodgers. So maybe instead of a freeway series, it would be an Amtrak series.

The Angels have huge question marks at the corners going into this season. Chone Figgins might benefit from playing only one position this season, but he’s a stubbed toe away from playing a multiple-position rotation again. First base could be settled with Casey Kotchman, but the dude always seems to be injured, sick, or whatever. And that trends goes back all the way to his first season in the minors.

Hey, hopefully the guy is right, but it’s hard to see that right now.
