You have to give up something to get something. And the Astros have nothing to give that the Dodgers would give a sh!t about.
Maybe we could work out a 3 way trade with the Dodgers & Giants:
Lincecum, Martin, Kemp, & Kershaw to us. Villarreal, Blum, & Ausmus to the Dodgers, and Lee & Backe to the Giants.
We get all the young studs and they get all our aging guys. It's a win win!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
Well Chacon's not on the team anymore. We gotta keep the trade ideas realistic after all.
He cleared waivers and was released on Monday, son.
It's funny but someone on our message board jokingly suggested that we should acquire Chacon so that he can ring Ned Colletti's neck. LOL
BTW, Kershaw isn't going anywhere. He wasn't demoted to Double-A because we didn't want him or lost faith in him. He was demoted to make room for Kuroda and we're hoping he's going to develop his changeup while he's down there.
Joe Torre said on Wednesday that Kershaw is the future of the Dodgers. He also said the only reason he was getting sent down was to make way for their two pitchers coming off the DL. Torre said he didn't want Kershaw wasting away in the bullpen when he could be pitching every 5 or 6 days in AA. There is very little the Dodgers would be willing to trade Kershaw for. He is their future.
We will be lucky to get anything worthwhile this season. Most of what is out there is not worth squat.
