Reds give up:
Dodgers give up:
Juan Pierre, Andy LaRoche, 12 million dollars.
Salaries.. Pierre is owed 7 million/year for the next 4 years.
Stanton and Freel's salaries balance out the 2008 cost. The
12 million over the remaining 3 years would make Pierre cost 5 million/year. (If Stanton's option vests, that's another approx 3 million saved).
I'm assuming LA is going to use Garicparra at 3b, but maybe I'm wrong on that.. But let's assume LaRoche is available after his disappointing season.
Would you do this deal?
EDITED to update the real cost of Pierre.
