    Angels almost traded Kendrick to Dodgers for Zach Lee

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/l...endrick-081913

    the Dodgers’ target was the Los Angeles Angels’ Howie Kendrick, and the two sides held extensive trade discussions before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, according to major-league sources.

    The Angels proposed a deal that included one of the Dodgers’ top pitching prospects, Double A right-hander Zach Lee, sources said. One source said the talks went right down to the deadline. It is unclear which team blinked.

    The trade would have been a stunner – the Los Angeles teams haven’t completed a deal since the Dodgers sent outfielder Orlando Alvarez to the Angels for catcher Ellie Rodriguez in March 1976, according to STATS LLC.

    Kendrick, 30, can not block a deal to the Dodgers – his contract includes a 12-team no-trade list for the 2013 season, but the Dodgers are not on that list, a source said.

    The Dodgers could revive their pursuit of Kendrick in the offseason rather than attempt to sign Cano, a potential free agent who might command a contract of more than $150 million.
    Lee, 21, was the Dodgers’ first-round pick in 2010, and entered the season as the team’s fifth-best prospect, according to Baseball America. He currently is at Double A Chattanooga, and is 9-9 with a 3.19 ERA.
    would have been quite interesting.

    I would guess that it was the Dodgers who pulled out. Zach Lee would be a great return for Howie. Still, I'd like to have Howie on the team next year and see Aybar traded for a nice pitching prospect.

    That will be a good addition.
    Do you know why it didn't go through?

    I hope we would get more back than just Lee. Like maybe Lee and Reed. or at the very least maybe Lee and a reliefe prospect like yimi garcia.

    I think with the addition of Green they probably trade Howie and keep Aybar, sucks that 2006 talented rookie class didn't get to a WS. Weaver/Napoli/Aybar/Kendrick...

    That's the problem, I really don't like Green. He's not good at getting on-base consistently and he is just awful defensively. He should not be the starting second baseman next year. What we should be looking to do is trade players that are easily replaceable (ie. Trumbo and Aybar). Trading Kendrick will do nothing except create a hole, both offensively and defensively, that we are unable to fill.

    I still am in favor of including Bourjos in a trade that can help us land a solid starting pitcher.
    MIKE TROUT FOR MVP!!!!!

    there are some pretty good starting pitchers hitting the market soon(not so much this year) If we can go out and get one of them next year and another the year after i think we can be really good again.

    Of the relievers i think we should look at are

    Jesse Crain: has missed sometime this year, but has been really lights out over the last few years.

    Chad Gaudin: he has pitched really well for the giants, i think we should look at him. He can start and relieve.

    Javier Lopez: has been real good for the giants this year as well.

    Scott Downs: Why not?

    Manny Parra: decent loogy

    Chris Perez: Depends on how much Cleveland wants for him.

    It looks like they signed Alexander Guerrero like five times, who knows how it goes, the Howie trade talks might not be dead.
