Dodgers, CF Pierre agree to five-year deal

Postby speedy12la » Mon Nov 20, 2006 8:02 pm

"Free agent center fielder Juan Pierre has agreed to a five-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a source told ESPN.com on Monday. The deal is believed to be worth $44-45 million.

The deal will become complete when Pierre passes a physical exam, the source said.

Pierre, 29, is a .303 hitter over seven seasons with Colorado, Florida and the Chicago Cubs. He led the National League with 204 hits in 2006.

The San Francisco Giants were also interested in Pierre, and had offered him a four-year deal in the $32-34 million range, a source said.

Big mistake in my opinion.

Why not have essentially the same offense and defense with Lofton for 1/3 of the price. Check out Pierre's SB%, too...ugly
The Big Hurt was robbed!

Couldn't agree more. In my opinion this is a big part of the reason that the Cubs' signing of Soriano was in fact NOT a mistake. $9 million a year for Pierre or $17 million a year for Soriano? Give me Soriano in that deal. Pierre adds very little to the team as far as run production goes. He would have been very valuable in a low run scoring environment where his low sb% wouldn't be much of a hinderance as long as he stole lots of bases, his bunting skills would have been very valuable as would his base running ability and his lack of power wouldn't have been as conspicuous. In today's environment he's just not all that valuable.

you also have to look at the fact that the dodgers have such polarization between positions last year. now they are moving toward a younger offense. they are my dark horse this year. I like their young players. schmidt was a good signing also.
