The NL MVP should be unanimous this season: Los Angeles Dodgers GM Ned Colletti. If you look back to when he was hired, there was a huge mess in L.A. that needed cleaning up. Within 58 days, Colletti hired a new coaching staff and manager, made three trades and acquired seven free agents. But more than anything, Colletti helped restore the confidence the Dodgers lacked in 2005. - Rick Sutcliff, ESPN

- "The Dodgers are a big-market team with a $100 million-plus payroll and they have better young players than the Mets have," said an NL GM. "Now [on] the Mets' left side of the infield [Jose Reyes and David Wright] are two of the best players in the game. But the Mets don't have depth in pitching and the pitching is old. But they do have the wherewithal to sign pitching every year." - NY Post

- "I've already seen a lot of progress. I've gone from throwing up on the floor to walking, and now to almost running on a treadmill. Once in a while, I get a little pain down to the butt, but it doesn't go down my leg to my foot like it did when it happened. It's just a matter of time. There's no quick fix." - Eric Gagne on recovering from his herniated disc, MLB.com
