Esteban Loaiza to the Dodgers

Postby Havok1517 » Wed Aug 29, 2007 1:43 pm

According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers have added Esteban Loaiza from the A's on a waiver claim.

The A's could have insisted on a prospect return and pulled him back if the Dodgers refused, but they instead opted to shed the approx. $8.375 million Loaiza has left on his contract. His addition figures to knock Eric Stults out of the Dodgers' rotation. Dallas Braden could get another shot in Oakland.

^what the hell does all that mean?

I think this is a slight boost to his value. A Under 4 ERA and under 1.30 WHIP are certain for the remainder of the year IMO, with the potential for more.

Nice. Hopefully AL to the NL helps him out in his continued return.

Veteran Fetish Alert!

I knew Colletti wouldn't be able to resist this.

"At this time of the year, we're looking for any way to improve the team and Esteban is a talented veteran who we hope can contribute down the stretch and next season," Colletti said. "He has a history of winning games and right now that's what's most important to our team."

So what he's saying is , because Loaiza has been on teams that were good (that give him wins) , that is the most important thing to the Dodgers.
Why didn't he sign David Wells then? Oh wait , HE DID THAT ALREADY! :-D :-D :-D :-D

And on the positive/fantasy side , in deep keeper leagues GO GET DALLAS BRADEN!
In 293 minor league innings he has 336 Ks. In his last start at AAA , he pitched 9 innings for 3 hits 0 runs 0 walks and 17 Ks!
Quickly. Go go go. ;-D

No idea why LA did this, but as an A's fan, I don't care. Gracias!
