The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to get their act together offensively at some point, but until they do, it's hard to justify these sorts of prices. The St. Louis Cardinals are also far from a pushover, and Jordan Montgomery has been great since coming over from the Yankees, allowing 8 earned runs in his last 23 innings. Yes, Clayton Kershaw is on the other side and the line is probably fair, but I'll take a stab with the Cards and 1.5 my money anyway.
