Who needs an OFer, and has a little cash to spare? (The Dodgers would probably have to pay at least half)
Detroit - LF
Seattle - LF
Atlanta - LF/RF
NYM - LF
I think Atlanta might be the favourites off that list.

If they make any moves, it would be to acquire bullpen help, not OF help.
B-Chad wrote:Well glad that we got the Yankee homer line of thinking... give me a break. He is a legit Major League prospect, sure, but he's a strikeout machine, and his 25 walks in 300 Plate appearances isn't exactly setting the world on fire... and considering that low walk total and high strikeout total is coming with a meager 3 HR's in 300 plate appearances, I'd say that your assessment of Austin Jackson is hog wash. In fact, looking at his AAA stat line, I'd argue that at BEST he'd be playing a similar game to Pierre at the moment.
