Dodger Rumors: Dec 9th 2009

Dodgers 2B Possibilities:

Dylan Hernandez tweets, “Ronnie Belliard, Craig Counsell, Juan Uribe and Jamey Carroll are among the 2B possibilities for the Dodgers.”

Juan Pierre To Tigers?


The Detriot Tigers are interested in Juan Pierre. It’s said they’re looking for a third team to get involved in the deal to supply the pitching to the Dodgers.

  • Detroit did just trade Curtis Granderson.
  • Dodgers are desperate for starting pitching.
  • Why not trade from their own stock of over priced pitchers?
  • Maybe LA has their sights on a specific pitcher…

Any trade involving Pierre has my blessing. No, not because I dislike Pierre, I simply dislike his contract and price as a 4th outfielder. If a third team needs to supply the pitching for this trade, my guess is we’re looking for more than the pitching the Tigers have to offer on their own.

I have a wild idea, why don’t we get some trading chips from Detroit that would interest the Jays, in which we flip those chips to in addition to our own for Halladay?

Interesting thought…

Millwood Rumor Update:

Yesterday we mentioned the Dodgers and Rangers discussed a Millwood trade. Today the Orioles and Rangers have worked a deal that will swap Kevin Millwood from Rangers for Chris Ray from Orioles.

  1. The pitchers mentioned as possibilities are Nate Robertson, Dontrelle Willis, and Jeremy Bonderman. The Dodgers are said to not like either of those pitchers. I don’t like them either. I think that the Dodgers can do much better than that for a great table setter like Juan Pierre.

    I agree with you about acquiring some pieces for a Roy Halladay trade. The Tigers can afford to part with some talent. The prospects get even better for the Dodgers because a third team will likely be involved to make the trade work.

    It’ll be tough to see him go, but there is just no room on the roster for him. Manny won’t be touched because of his contract, and Ethier and Kemp are the future.

  2. Agreed on Tigers pitching. I’d like to see us use Pierre to get prospects that interest the Jays. However, we run the risk the Jays hold tight.

  3. I think that the Jays have their backs against the wall. They simply want too much. Teams are realizing that and lessening their offers. That said, now may be the team to jump in front of the pack and bring the Doc to Los Angeles.
