    Heyman talks trades

    Kemp, LaRoche, other Minor League arm or no deal. I like our other guys too much.

    I do that trade yesterday, today and twice on Sunday but it's not enough.

    I think whatever trades we're talking, the same players are going to come up.

    It might also just be a negotiating ploy by Ned as well. Just like buying a new car, you have to be willing to walk off the lot without it if you're not getting the offer you want, in order to make the salesman sweat. It's clear FLA wants to sell Cabrera and if they can't find any takers for the current deal, they could lower their current price tag of 4 prospects to, say, either Kershaw/Kemp + LaRoche + minor prospect, which is a deal you can't walk away from , IMO.

    In any case, I have a hard time believing the Dodgers will make no movement this offseason. I'd keep an eye on Bedard and Rowand, and I wouldn't count out Cabrera yet either. I don't think Santana's in the offing.

    The only thing that worries me about Santana is the amount of pitches he's thrown the past 4 years. 4 straight years of well over 200 IP and well over 200 Ks. That's a lot of pitches. If the Dodgers trade for him, how many years does he actually have left having thrown that much? It's a tough decision to make. Do you trade 3-4 young studs for Santana after he's thrown that many pitches?

    I like Fro24's idea of Haren. Plus I don't think he'd be that expensive in terms of what we'd have to give up.

    Pitch count is a concern I had not thought of. Good points Claw.

    I'm more worried about trading for Santana and then having him walk at the end of the year. Even if we did re-sign him it would take a mega deal, 150 million, 7 years, something crazy like that. I'm not too comfortable giving up that much money to a pitcher about to enter his 30s. Good track record or not, it's just risky. Plus there's no guarantee he re-signs anyways.

    Don't trade for Santana unless you get an extension done in the window before the deal becomes official.

    I just don't like the idea of giving up 3 or 4 top young players for a pitcher who will likely also cost $125 million over the next 6 years.

    Only way I give up top young talent for a pitcher is Haren, who's already signed at a "bargain" rate for the next 3 seasons. Even if you extend Haren for 3 more years on top of that at $20 mill/year, over the next 6 years he'd probably be at least $50 million cheaper than Johan. And he's 2 years younger.

    If Cabrera or Haren isn't on the other end of the deal, I say hold onto Kemp/Kershaw/etc.

    Agreed! And I certainly don't want to see anything longer than a 5-year extension. I think it's WAAAAAAY to risky to give a pitcher more than 5 years. Especially with the excellent points made above about the wear and tear on Santana's arm already. The last thing we need is another Kevin Brown.

    except Kevin Brown was 34 in his first year as a Dodger. Santana is still in his 20s. I wouldn't mind giving him 5 years.

    Here's another article of interest with the same tone.

    Press Telegram - Long Beach

    The names mentioned as possible Dodgers off-season targets have been rather staggering. Alex Rodriguez. Johan Santana. Miguel Cabrera. Even center fielder Aaron Rowand is enough of an offensive upgrade to get some people excited.

    But after surveying the market and sky-high asking prices for those players - via trade or free agency - Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti seems to be looking a lot more favorably on the talented young players the club has developed, and every potential trading partner covets.

    "Everyone we've talked to is very anxious to talk about our young players," Colletti said Monday, after the Dodgers officially announced that their March 29 exhibition game with the Red Sox will be played at the Coliseum. "I think we have to be wise. We can't just do a deal to do a deal.

    "We've been talking about finding someone who could hit 20-25 home runs, but I think our first baseman (James Loney) and our right fielder (Matt Kemp) both might be able to do that right now, from what I saw from them the last month of the season."

    Still, Colletti said that pitching was a "constant priority" and "if the right scenario presents itself" the club wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.
