Dodgers Can Catch Raines With Loose Purse Strings

November 29, 1986

The Dodgers have the opportunity to obtain a superstar free agent in Tim Raines, who has expressed a desire to become a Dodger. So what if it takes $5 million (over three years). Raines would be an everyday player that could ignite the team. Can you imagine having the number one and two batting averages in the league in the same lineup, coupled with a healthy Pedro Guerrero hitting behind them? That's an offensive force unequaled in the National League. The best part of all is the Dodgers do not have to give up any quality players to get him.

They lost out on Rickey Henderson, gave up too early on Sid Fernandez. Don't blow this opportunity to get a player that could mean a pennant-winner again. Loosen the purse strings.
