Assorted Ex-Dodger Trade Rumors

ESPN.com's Trade Deadline rumors is heating up as we enter the last four days. And while the Dodgers haven't really been mentioned (except peripherally in the Roy Oswalt and Ted Lilly discussions), there are a couple of ex-Dodgers rumored to be moving:

  • Edwin Jackson: Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that the D-Backs are not done dealing yet and will listen to offers on Edwin Jackson, who will be a free agent after the 2011 season. One of those offers may be from the nation's capital. ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney tweeted Monday that the Nats have made progress in their effort to trade prospects for Jackson, the architect of an eight-walk no-hitter.

    There had been speculation on a three-team deal involving the White Sox and Nationals, but Gilbert said there had been no such discussions as of Monday afternoon. Gilbert adds that the D-backs would still like to move catcher Chris Snyder and reliever Chad Qualls and would not be opposes to trading first baseman Adam LaRoche.

  • Chan Ho Park: The Yankees are trying to unload veteran reliever Chan Ho Park, reports ESPN.com's Jayson Stark. The Yankees will likely get little back for a reliever who has allowed seven home runs in just 32.1 innings. The 37-year-old is earning $1.2 million this year.
  • Jayson Werth: Rumors began to fly Monday afternoon that the Phillies and Padres had agreed on a deal that would land Werth in San Diego, but ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports via Twitter that the two clubs have not agreed to a deal, citing one source as saying "not true...had discussions...not close."

".. the D-backs would still like to move catcher Chris Snyder and reliever Chad Qualls"

I think the D-backs would like to move Chad Qualls, and then flush the toilet

I bet he'll be good again for somebody, but probably not this season.

I think Ted Lilly is becoming more of a certainty at this point. Colletti and the Cubs know each other, they made a deal for a veteran pitcher before, it looks like it's going to happen.

I got no problem with Ted Lilly, but what's it going to cost us?

Dusty Baker said...

He has a wimpy name, though. Huge minus.

Paul said...

Dodgerd please trade for Lilly!!! I don't care if you have to trade the next Ted Lilly to get him!!!!

Paul said...

Ted is a local boy and was in our high school
division. I was pissed when the Dodgers traded him to Montreal. We play good baseball in these parts. Motivated by the goal to get the hell out!

I'd rather have Lilly on the team than have to face him again.

Good pick up.

Jayson and Jayson not related.

Maybe we can get Lilly for Juan Castro?

Spanky said...

Ted Lilly for Torre,Mattingly and Honeycutt.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lilly for GAARP

Josh S. said...

If we get Ted Lilly, who are Marshall, Robin, and Barney going to hang out with?

Jason said...

@Dusty - Does it help that his full name is Theodore Roosevelt Lilly?

Throw softly and carry a big bat?

Mr. Customer said...

So, does he get to warm up in the bull moose pen?

Dusty Baker said...

@Jason

Actually, yes, that does help some.
