Adrian Beltre's departure after his breakout 2004 was so bitter—at the time—that a return to the Dodgers seemed inconceivable. Now, after two disappointing seasons in Seattle, his name is coming up in trade talk.
And not just rumors. A "high-level source" confirms the Dodgers have made multiple inquiries into Beltre's availability. And as Trolley Dodger Robert reminds us, Beltre in a "bad" year still had five more home runs than J.D. Drew.
Penny for Beltre? LaRoche to second after Kent leaves? Stay tuned.
