Question is, who could we get off their roster? hmm..

You mean the Yankees want Lowe, right.

Not gonna happen, IMO. They don't have much we could get, and I highly doubt they'd want to part with a few of their top prospects for Lowe, but we'll see.

Lowe, a bottom tier prospect and Pierre for Melky. It wont happen but it works for both sides. Yanks get the pitching they need and a replacement for Melky. We get a bright young outfielder and the relief of Juan's salary off of the books.

If and I mean IF we even talk about this trade with the Jankees Cano has to be involved somehow. If not forget about it.

If the Yankees want Lowe I would make them take Jones as well. After all they need a power hitting right handed hitter! LOL

Cano signed a 4 year contract extension this season... So I think he's not going to get traded.

And he's having his worst season, .263 with a .298 OBP.. He does have 8 HR and 45 RBI's but Kent has been producing just the same as him.

Ian Kennedy would be nice to have but he's still young and it's tough to say whether the Yankee's have given up on him. He pitched bad earlier this season with a 7.41 ERA in 9 games (8 starts). He walked 25 batters and only struck out 26. He is improving in the minors, and has a 3.12 ERA but I don't think the Yankees will let him go.

He's their 1st round pick in 06... Same class as Kershaw, so however we feel about Kershaw, is about the same with Kennedy to them.

Not even close. Kershaw is a premier talent, and Kennedy is a middle of the rotation guy at best. He doesn't have near the projectability that Kershaw has. Just because they were taken in the same round doesn't mean squat. Drafts are a crapshoot, and youguys hit the jackpot with Kershaw.

If they Yanks were truly interested (and they should be--he is money in the postseason), they should be willing to part with Kennedy and another spec. Further, they get picks for Lowe. Not a bad deal.

Looking at this again, it would seem if Ned is holding out for that proverbial big bat....I am still waiting for the last one....it may require a 3 team deal.

Lowe, Schmidt, Jones for Cano + outfielder. I believe both teams win.

07-23-2008, 11:36 AM
If Lowe is going, we need the bat and wouldnt mind a replacement arm. The Yankees dont seem to have what we need unless we package Lowe and someone else (Kent/Hu/LaRoche)to get a combination of any of these guys (1 bat and 1 arm)... Chamberlain/Cano/Kennedy/Sanchez/Cabrera. I really dont see a decent matchup since who we want, they would not let go of.

It would have to be a 3 team deal.

They are so sprung over there on Joba, and Hughes that Kennedy (who I think could be the best of the 3) is like someone else posted a middle of the rotation guy in their eyes. No way they part with Hughes or Joba, the media would eat them alive. We don't need Cano he is overrated.

Tymathee
07-23-2008, 12:07 PM
A-Rod? J/k. I wouldn't mind Bobby Abreau....

I don't see anyone in their minor leagues that I like that could even help us. They've got 3 guys in AAA that hit 'em otu but all have averages under .260 and my belief is if you can't hit .300 in the minors you won't make it in the majors lol

I dont' see anyone that we'd like, but if we can dump Jones or Pierre on them I don't care who we get back...i'd love to get Abreau and or Cabrera (future CF easily) and he could be a future leadoff hitter as well, he's fast, his averages isn't that high this year but I think that's because of sporadic playing time, they've got matsui, damon, and abreau they want to play so melky gets left out, it' spossible we might be able to hand AJ off on them as a right handed hitting specialists for damon or matsui vs lefties...

maybe we can snatch Kei Igawa as well so that we can have someone in Lowe's place, we at least need to get one starter back, maybe Darrell Rasner?

Looking at their AA affiliate they seem to have a reallay good pitching staff, their staff ERA is about 2.80 that's pretty dang good.

http://minors.baseball-reference.com/teams.cgi?yid=2008&lid=EAS&tid=TRE

I dunno...i say a prospect of the deal is they gotta take pierre or jones IMHO. Preferably Pierre because he has 4 more years left and Jones will be gone after next year.

Hmm, just musing. hell, if we can snatch a-rod i'd be happy but that wont happen w/o severe repercussions to our prospects lol

Padres want to trade him, but Maddux will only go to a west cost club. In other words Dodgers angels. angels are set with their pitching so that leaves only us. Two mid level prospects should do it!

Then trade Piere- cash, Gonzalez the short stop [285 12 homers souble A} and May or elis minor leauge catchers for Dunn and Ross [the catcher] who the reds are looking to trade.

we keep Dunn, send Ross to replace Posada who is gone for the season, Kent to replace Cano, Gonzales the AA second baseman hitting 323, for the future plus Lowe and penny for cano, Huges, and kennedy!

Kent is having a better year then Cano. yanks get the power hitting catcher they need to replace theirs. and pick up 2 starters for the play off run.

We get two young arms one we cn use now the other Juges in august. Cano to play second, we then make the beltre trade, and have a line up of=

Kemp leading off
etheir or Cano second
Martin third
Beltre 4th
Loney 5th
Dunn 6th
ethier or cano 7th
Nomar- Hu-Beroa short

Hughes is on the DL and would need the Commish to approve the deal, very unlikely.

Would be Huges when he comes off the DL. That would solve that problem!

The Yanks didnt trade Hughes or Kennedy in a deal for Santana so I doubt they would do it for Lowe.

Kennedy is more likely to go than Hughes, plus the boss said a few days ago its ok to trade prospects.

Don't you guys think Cano is kind of overrated? He's a slight improvement over Kent this season maybe because of Defense, hardly enough to "throw" Lowe in IMO.
Kent =
Avg.253
HR 10
RBI 43
OBP.308
SLG.414
OPS.723

Cano=
Avg.266
HR 8
RBI 45
OBP.301
SLG.392
OPS.694

Like Kent, Cano is a second half player, but gets hotter. This is guy two years removed from being 5 points away from winning the AL batting title and a year removed from having a .385/6HR/24RBI July. And like others have said, he is only 25!

Cano is off to a bad start a la A. Jones, but Cano is a 2nd half player and relateively young. He has already shown signs of life and could be an asset. He could shore up 2b for the Dodgers for years to come if he ever gets dealt

My favorite posts are the ones that are asking for Joba, Hughes, Cano and Abreu.

Like another poster said... the Yankees didn't give up Hughes for Johan Santana, they are not going to do it for Derek Lowe, who isn't even in Johan's atmosphere and is like 7-8 years older. Cano gets off to a slow start every season then ends up hitting close to 400 in the second half. He isn't exactly a "throwin". Joba isn't even worth discussing.

Frankly, I wouldn't give up more then some mid level prospects and then I'd eat a majority of Lowe's contract this year. He isn't worth top level prospects. Isn't Lowe like 35 years old also?

^ Lowe could absolutely help the Yankees, and by my observation would easily be a #2 or 3 depending on how much faith you guys have in those antiques at the top of your rotation. Lowe is not a sub par pitcher, he is a frontline starter and if he played on a team that gave him a lick of run support he would have been an all star this year.

That is totally true, but nobody outside of L.A. seems to pay attention to any of that. Thats exactly why people think the Dodgers are hard to deal with. We tend to see reality about our MLB roster.

07-24-2008, 05:38 PM
yeah Lowe is a great #2 pitcher to have and is valuable to the Dodgers because he is always healthy, always has an era around 4, and can go deep into games. no deal unless we can get Cano

Heh...reality huh? I guess...we do have a lot of delerious folks around here though you have to admit. Bet if you took a poll of who's done more to help the team this year Kemp or Ethier most would go for ethier even though kemp has more rbi's, runs, assits, putouts, sb's, higher avg, hits, same 2b, more 3b, higher slg & ops, and obp, lol.

All because the media painted this negative perception of Kemp with that one altercation with Kent last year and some goofs that he's made that just look worse because people have such high hopes for Kemp and Ethier couldn't even crack the A's major league roster :(.

Anywho...I think the way that we view baseball is all because of the likes of Vin Scully and Rick Monday, or whoever does the TV broadcasts. I know a lot of my views mirror Vin's, especialy since I listen to games more than watch.

Why do we want to deal with the Yankees anyway? Remember a year or two ago when they were trying to rip us off in a very one sided trade and then complained that we were backing out of deals? Does anyone remember the specifics on that? I think it was with PDP in the pre-Ned days.
