Sources suggest the Dodgers are considering a variety of relievers, and could also make a play for either Indians closer Chris Perez or Mets reliever Bobby Parnell instead. The Dodgers would prefer a left-hander, but many of their best choices appear to be right-handers -- including Hanrahan, Perez and Parnell.
Dodgers have nothing we want. unless of course they go nuts & offer us Kemp & 130 million for Bobby.
Dodgers want Parnell?
Parnell for Duke Snyder strait up
Parnell is one of trhose guys who isn't nearly as good as his stats. You have to see him every day to realize it. Parnell's problem is that he can't pitch in a close game. In a game you're winning or losing by three runs or more, he's unhittable. In tied or one run games, he gets pounded. Not a good thing for a relief pitcher. That's why, dispite his great stuff, he can't close. Someone would give us something pretty decent for him, but, our BP is the worst in baseball. I think I would need a lot before I'd even let a Parnell go.
Actually, the BP might not be as awful as last years. I expect Francisco to bounce back and have a decent season. Two reasons for that. He's pitched well in the past and relief pitchers who have a track record of success in the past, usually do bounce back after a bad year. He was pitching hurt last year too. So, maybe he will be decent in 2013. Given how awful the offence and starting pitching is, he won't get many save opportunities, but I don't think he'll blow as many as most people think.
There is not really a match with the Mets and Dodgers BUT that does not mean we can take like a Dee Gordan and flip him in another trade
