The Dodgers just received news that CF Matt Kemp would be back in the lineup and this would mean Adrian Beltre would be batting 7th in the order. This is when the GM realized that he needed some speed and contact because the entire order is power. Therefore the Dodgers made 2 moves:

1) Dodgers trade 3B Adrian Beltre for SP Cliff Lee.
- The team decided to move Lilly (see 2nd trade) and they felt that having Lee in the rotation with Kershaw, Capuano, Beckett, and Billingsley would definitely improve their chances. The Phillies needed some offense and Beltre was a good fit.

2) Dodgers trade SP Ted Lilly, 2B Marco Scutaro, LF Juan Rivera to the Yankees for RF Ichiro, 3B Eric Chavez, LF Raul Ibanez. This is an interesting move. Lilly and Scutaro have been struggling and 38 year old Ichiro is on a 1 year deal. The team feels like they need him to win this year. Chavez will stay on the active roster and maybe start at 3B now, Either moves to DH, Ichiro to RF. Ciriaco will mainly play 2B, with Hariston JR getting the occasional start. Ibanez will become the 4th OF playing only due to injury or PH duties.

* CF Nyger Morgan was sent to AAA to make room for Kemp who is back after a rehab assignment. May Review to follow

The Cleveland Indians once again put away the Chicago White Sox to sweep the series, this time with a 6-2 victory. The defining moment of the game came in the bottom of the 5th as Cleveland touched Chicago pitcher "Black Jack" McDowell for 4 runs. Paul Sorrento came up big for Cleveland with a double, triple and 2RBI. Carlos Baerga had a big day as well, with a double and two-run homerun. Dennis Martinez got the win in 5 innings of 1-run ball, and Albie Lopez gave up 1 in the last 4 to pick up his first save of the young season. Cleveland now travels to Kansas City to take on the Royals in a 3 game set.

The Chicago White Sox jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the 1st inning, but the Indians shut them out the rest of the game to notch the come from behind victory. Darren Jackson worked Grimsley for a walk and came around to score on a single by Julio Franco to open up the scoring. Then after a Ventura strike out, Rock Raines lined a single into center to score Joey Cora.

Cleveland tied the game up in the bottom of the 5th as Jim Thome grounded a ball through the hole to RF for a single, then Sandy Alomar Jr followed with a homerun to straightaway CF to make it 2-2.

The final scoring was done in the 7th as Paul Sorrento and Manny Ramirez each hit solo homers to give the Indians a 4-2 lead.

Chicago threatened in the 9th as Ozzie Guillen hit a 1-out triple to CF off Jose Mesa. But Mesa induced a popup and a line out to preserve the Cleveland victory and notch his 2nd save.

A matchup that had the aspirations of becoming yet another "Game of the Century" failed to occur, as then #3 Nebraska lost last week. Since the #2 at the time (West Virginia) lost as well, we thought that we would see #1 vs. #2 in the regular season.

Anyways, Nebraska looked like they were going to end the Spartans' run after getting to a 14-0 lead. However, Nebraska scored no more because the turnover bug ate them up.

Because I can't fully recall all of the rankings and records at the time, I will not do box scores for Games 4-10. Here's a recap:

Week 4
Notre Dame 10
Michigan State 24

After finishing the 1st Half tied, the Spartans scored 2 unanswered touchdowns.

Week 6
Ohio State 3
Michigan State 16

After a bye week, Ohio State surprisingly proved to be no true competition.

Week 7
Indiana 0
Michigan State 32

MSU assaulted the Indiana secondary in a rivalry rout.

Week 8
Iowa 21
Michigan State 27

Andrew Maxwell threw two Pick-6'es, but the Spartans scored 17 unanswered points in the 4th Quarter. BCS hopes were nearly dashed, as the Spartans enjoyed their first week as #1 in the nation.

Week 9
Michigan State 38
Michigan 3

The Wolverines were severly unstable on offense, and they were beat to the ground by the Spartan rushing attack.

Week 10
Michigan State 35
Purdue 14

After scoring first, Purdue slowly went away quietly.

The Dodgers were busy today, continuing to strengthen their team by making 3 connected deals:

1) The Dodgers trade 2B Mark Ellis to Giants for 2B/SS Marco Scutaro. Marco was being benched in favor of Theriot and he was only on a 1 year deal so the Giants were shopping him. The Dodgers will use him at 2nd base as an upgrade over Jerry Hariston Jr.

2) The Dodgers trade CL Kenley Jansen, and AA 5 Star Prospect SP to Texas for 3B Adrian Beltre. Texas wanted to unload some sallary and LA was a perfect fit. They wanted a good fielding 3B with power to move Hanley to SS. Now Ciriaco will DH and he will be platooned with Jerry Hariston JR, with Ciriaco getting most of the nods there.

3) Lastly, LA deals DH David Ortiz to Detroit for CL Jose Valverde. Valverde was being shopped by Detroit and they wanted a Power bat to add to their already potent offense. Ortiz was the odd man out after the Beltre deal so it made sense for both teams.

- The Dodgers now have arguably the best lineup and rotation and will be going to the title this season. I don't see many more big moves unless the injury bug strikes.

I finally have time to start a franchise, and I need a break from my Blue Jays so I'm going to go with the LA Dodgers because I have been amused with them since the AGon deal. I playt 52 games, 6 inning games, DH is ON, with default All Star Sliders. I will play for fun over realism and I will play every game a give an update with stats, standings and headlines every month. So far I have made 3 deals, and got news that CF Matt Kemp will miss 40 Days with a torn shoulder ligament. He only played 1game where he went 2-2 with a HR and 2 RBI before leaving after making a diving catch in center field. He is expected to make a rehab assignment about half way through the 2nd month of the season. LF Juan Rivera will play vs. Lefties, and CF Nyger Morgan will play vs, Righties.

1) Dodgers trade OF Shane Victorino, SP Aaron Harrang, and INF Nick Punto to the Red Sox for DH David Ortiz, INF Pedro Ciriaco, and P Franklin Morales.
- The Dodgers wanted more power and decided Big Pappi would be the answer. With 6 quality SP, Harrang was the odd man out. Ortiz will play DH and bat 5th, Ciriaco will play mostly SS and some appearances as 2B when Dee Gordon plays SS. Morales will be the teams Long Reliever. This is yet another blockbuster between the Red Sox and Dodgers.

2) Dodgers trade AAA CF Prospect Matt Angle to the Brewers for CF Nyger Morgan.
- The Dodgers needed a CF who could step in a play now until Kemp was back. The Brewers had Gomez who played full time so they could afford to move Morgan for a decent 4 star prospect.

3) Dodgers trade C AJ Ellis, INF Juan Uribe, AAA Prospect to Braves for C Brian McCann, 1B Lyle Overbay, and RF Reed Johnson.
- This deal was actually offered to the Dodgers while it was simulating between the 1st and 2nd game of the season. The deal offered was a 2-2, the Dodgers added Overbay for the Prospect so they could have a AAA 1B on the team. McCann should bat 6th after David Ortiz and Overbay, and Johnson will report to AAA.
