This trade is pretty stupid. But if it keeps Colletti from making an even stupider trade then whatever I guess.

"He battles you," Torre said of Pierre. "He got the base hit that got us going, which is important. Again, he's a threat on the bases. When he gets on, especially leading off an inning he distracts the pitcher enough where Matt [Kemp] gets a base hit and all of a sudden he hits Russell [Martin], and we're basically off to the races, but I thought he was fine. He's in such great shape."
Torre is ****ing crazy if he believes this bull****.

Dodgers acquire Casey Blake from the Indians. Ehhh...Why not continue to play DeWitt and LaRoche? Just another older right handed hitter in Blake. He's not familiar with NL pitching, since he's been in the AL his entire career.
Dodgers give up Jon Meloan and Carlos Santana.

Why not? Because the management is stupid.

"Casey Blake is a gamer," General Manager Ned Colletti said in a statement.

Again, this is a scaled-down version of the eight-player deal the clubs never consummated earlier this month. That one was CC Sabathia, Casey Blake and Jamey Carroll for (I believe) Santana, Matt Kemp, James McDonald, Cory Wade and Andy LaRoche.

That's some trade. Good thing McCourt shot that down.

Ned is a ****ing retard. We just sent 2 good prospects for Casey ****ing Blake.

That means Meloan and Santana will become decent to great major league pitchers soon enough.
We always trade those.

There was no doubt he was going to make a stupid trade for the sake of making a trade. I'm just glad it wasnt more than two prospects. Or two prospects and Ethier or something worse.
