Dodgers Acquire Mark Sweeney

The Dodgers acquired pinch-hitter extraordinaire Mark Sweeney from the Giants yesterday, which is notable because two rivals hadn't struck a deal since 1985.  The Giants will receive cash or a player to be named later.

The 37 year-old provides a needed left-handed bat, and can play first base and left field.  He's got about $280K left on his contract this year.  He can still help against righties off the bench.
