    Juan Pierre a possibility?

    It's just speculation at MLBTR for now, but this is one scary idea:

    Pierre A Trade Possibility

    The idea that Juan Pierre could take away at-bats from Matt Kemp and/or Andre Ethier seems absurd to me. If he was making $400K instead of $8MM, would this even be a consideration? Tony Jackson believes Pierre will be the main left fielder while Kemp and Ethier platoon in right.

    Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times notes that Pierre seems willing to waive his five-team no-trade protection. It's generally assumed that the Dodgers would have to eat some of his remaining $36.5MM over the next four years to move Pierre.

    It seemed like the White Sox could've been interested in Pierre, but their outfield now seems set with Carlos Quentin, Nick Swisher, and Jermaine Dye. Is there even one team for which for years of Pierre at, say, $24MM, would make sense? Following the whole Corey Patterson/Kenny Lofton theme, maybe the Reds would have interest at the right price.
    I honestly don't think there is any price the Reds should pay Juan Pierre to play the outfield. He may be the worst player in the major leagues.

    maybe the Reds would have interest at the right price.
    Maybe they're also interested in staving their head in with a hatchet too?

    I'd prefer the later over the former.

    How 'bout no!

    I'd rather chew off my own fingers...

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Juan Pierre for Mike Stanton and the difference in their contracts. Done.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    At the plate, they're almost identical. Hopper has a better arm, Pierre the better baserunner. Definitely redundant.

    Unfortunately Pierre isn't a leadoff hitter... he's a ball boy!

    Dusty Baker loves him some Juan Pierre.

    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    It's purely speculation by the writer and he even says so. Move on, nothing to see here.

    I didn't like this thread in its original form a few months back, either.
