Jamey Carroll is on track to lead the Dodgers in walks this season.This Dog Days edition of Dodger Cogs and Dogs is dedicated to Jamey Carroll, who kept the Dodger shortstop position with Rafael Furcal out from looking like the Dodger catcher position with Russell Martin out. Thanks to attrition elsewhere and to his own steady play, I've elevated the 36-year-old Carroll to No. 4 among position players and No. 8 overall, and he might not be done climbing.
But of course, that kind of tells the story of the 2010 Dodgers. To take another example, you all know what a big supporter I am of Chad Billingsley, but if a 3.70 ERA gets you the No. 4 spot on the list, something has gone quite wrong with your team.
