Dodgers Acquire Scott Podsednik

Postby Snakes Gould » Wed Jul 28, 2010 10:49 pm

SAN DIEGO (AP)—The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Scott Podsednik from the Kansas City Royals for a pair of minor leaguers Wednesday night, trying to boost their chances in the NL West.

Kansas City got catcher Lucas May and right-handed pitcher Elisaul Pimentel from the Dodgers.


this essentially kills podsednik's value when manny returns as far as im concerned.

SIGS!

My guess is the front office has its concerns about Manny holding up. Think he's had 3 DL stints, no? Garret Anderson can't play LF on a nearly everyday basis.

At least trading Pierre got us John Ely, right? :-b

Asking a person who follows the dodgers, do you think Pods fantasy value increased? I know he has the chance of not playing everyday like in KC but he has got better players around him. Score more runs? Will he attempt to steal as many bags as he did in KC? Just wanted your thoughts because I was pondering whether to pick him up or not.

I hope those prospects were valuable too.. Like super valuable. I hope it stings, long term. like Pedro Martinez type of sting! ;-)

Pods is a bench bat on a 3rd place team, and the Dodgers will be lucky to finish 3rd ..

go padres!

The catcher (May) is a bit meh, he keeps repeating levels and has a little bit of pop, Elisaul Pimentel is a A-level SP lottery ticket, but his numbers this year are pretty good (9+ K/9, 3ish BB/9, 5 HRs allowed from 88odd innings).

So basically the Royals got only a little less then what Arizona got for Haren, for a 4th outfielder.
