People are focusing on how this will affect them long-term but this really helps them in the short term and we're good now.  Our chances of making the World Series have been reduced - perhaps significantly.

Crawford's out for the year. Punto's kind of a zero. So it comes down to Gonzalez and Beckett, and while Gonzalez does improve the team's lineup a lot, Beckett is a complete mystery. He could be an okay pitcher or he could bomb. Baseball Prospectus currently gives the Dodgers 34.4% chances of making the playoffs; we'll see what happens after this trade is official.
