There is a theory that whoever plays shortstop for the Dodgers in 2000 will be merely keeping the position warm for Alex Rodriguez. The Seattle Mariner star, like Ken Griffey Jr. before him, is eligible for free agency when the season ends, and of the few clubs that may be able to afford him, the Dodgers could have the biggest need. Of course, there are limits to affordability, even for those big spenders from the West. Rodriguez figures to receive $18 million or more a year.

Alex Cora was the favorite to be the Dodgers' starting shortstop this season. Instead, he was beaten out by 35-year-old Kevin Elster during spring training. Elster hadn't played a full season since 1996 and was out of baseball last season. But Cora hit a woeful .176 in spring training. He hit .308 with triple-A Albuquerque last season--the first time he had hit higher than .264 in three minor league seasons.
