Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

In an e-mail to me this weekend, Jim Alexander of the Riverside Press-Enterprise noted "the irony of ex-Giant becoming Dodger and ex-Giant-slayer becoming Angel within a span of 24 hours this past week." He then suggested a discussion among the readers of Dodger Thoughts, with the potential that he might write a column that incorporated one or two of the responses.

It makes for another good ol' offseason chat. Here's how Alexander posed the question:

Given that players change addresses with such frequency, are there fans out there who still hold on to the idea that the "true" Dodger (to use an example) is the one who came up through the farm system and stayed a while? Or have people become so jaded by the parade of mercenaries that the guy who's here for a year (or, say, two months) inspires just as much loyalty?
