View Full Version : Jason LaRue

Now that we have DDR here, I'm guessing a catcher will be traded. Hey, how bout LaRue? I like LaRue, and he's a team leader but I think he could net some pitching.

To Texas: I'm dreaming, but I'd like to see Danks or Diamond. Yeah, okay. I'll put down my pipe now.

To Tampa: They have live pitching somewhere down there, don't they?

To Colorado: Ryan Shealy. Brain Fuentes please? No? Ok.

To Giants: Matt Cain or Noah Lowry.

To Dodgers: Cesar Izturis and Jae Seo.

To Phillies: Gavin Floyd or Ryan Madson. I'd ask for both, but push for Floyd.

To Pirates: Malholm, Duke, or Gonzalez.

I know the majority of these would be laughed at, but I'd propose them all and see if I can get anything.

I could see the Colorado thing. Shealy is a 1b with no place to play. Supposedly they might attempt to convert him to LF. Smart move, convert a big plodding 1B and give him the biggest LF in baseball to cover. OF defense should be a premium in Colorado.

I don't think you trade a number one catcher to platoon two #2 catachers. If there was some solid pitching in return then of course you have to visit the idea, but I suspect a deal for Valentin is in the works. He did start today after all....perhaps a showcase?

What's the situation with Ross? Can he be shipped to AAA?

Pretty sure I read he's out of options.
