This could also be a sign and trade. LA needs a 3rd baseman as bad as we do. I doubt it, but you never know. LA just signed Jose Valetin, but I don't think they want him to be their answer at 3rd.
I can't envision Austin Kearns being traded straight up for Javier Vasquez. That would be absolutely stupid IMO. Now, if we get Ishii, Vasquez, and a prospect, I would like that.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
