Schmidt to LA?

According to MLB, Jason Schmidt is headed to Los Angeles to join all of Ned Colletti’s other acquisitions.  The deal is reported as 3 years, $47 million.  Sounds like LA waited to make their final bid until they knew they were out of the running for Greg Maddux, who is close to a deal with the Padres.

This gives the Dodgers a fantastic rotation: Schmidt, Derek Lowe, and Brad Penny at the top, followed by Randy Wolf and one of Chad Billingsley, Mark Hendrickson, Brett Tomko, and a few other possibilities.  That, of course, would change quite a bit if Penny is included in a deal for Manny Ramirez.
