WHO’S NUTTIER HERE?
Who’s nuttier here–Minaya or Colletti? From Fox Sports:
“The Mets have shown interest in trading for Pierre, the Dodgers’ forgotten outfielder.
To move Pierre, the Dodgers would need to assume a large chunk of his remaining salary — $10 million in 2009, $10 million in 2010 and $8.5 million in ’11.
The Mets’ preference in left field is for a right-handed hitter, and Pierre hits from the left side. Where he ranks on the team’s list of possibilities is not known.
The Dodgers, meanwhile, are reluctant to move Pierre before knowing whether they will keep free-agent left fielder Manny Ramirez.”
You can get anyone to do what Pierre does, less the stolen bases. You can also do it for about 8 million dollars cheaper. Delwyn Young could be Juan Pierre. That anyone is “reluctant” to trade Juan Pierre is mind-blowing.
