    I like the possibility of Josh Linblom starting.

    We could use him, as our best starter just signed with the Brewers.

    Tigers interested in Pierre. A 3rd team would be needed, unless the Dodgers want gamble on Dontrelle Willis which seems unlikely. If Cincy wants to get involved, maybe LA could get Arroyo or Harang with Pierre to Detroit and Guillen to the Reds?

    Tigers among Juan Pierre's suitors 12:17 p.m.

    The Tigers are among the teams pursuing Dodgers outfielder Juan Pierre during the winter meetings, multiple major league sources told FOXSports.com.

    The Dodgers want a reliable pitcher in exchange for Pierre. With $18.5 million left on his guarantee, a swap of similar contracts would be ideal. But it's doubtful that Los Angeles would view any of Detroit's expensive, oft-injured starters Jeremy Bonderman, Nate Robertson, Dontrelle Willis as an attractive option.

    So, in order for the Tigers and Dodgers to strike a deal, a third team would probably need to be involved.

    Detroit would love to trade switch hitter Carlos Guillen for a pitcher, then ship the pitcher to the Dodgers for Pierre.

    Even after acquiring young center fielder Austin Jackson in the Curtis Granderson trade, the Tigers would be able to give Pierre a fulltime role. If Jackson is ready to start on Opening Day, Pierre could play left. If Jackson isn't ready, Pierre could be the center fielder.

    Either way, in that scenario Pierre would replace Guillen in the everyday lineup and Granderson as the leadoff man.

    Opinion may be divided on whether Jackson will be ready to become a fulltime player in 2010, but even some of his strong supporters question whether he can be a leadoff man in the majors at 23. -- Jon Paul Morosi

    FYI... the Dodger Stadium team store is currently having their blowout sale - everything is 50% off and other merchandise is marked down more according to the rep I just spoke with.

    I think this is a clear sign the team is financially hurting. They'd rather eat half of Pierre's deal and take a gamble on two minor league pitchers than look to trade Pierre for a MLB pitcher with a similar salary. If one of these two pitchers ends up contributing, the Dodgers will have done well. In the more likely scenario that neither pans out, the Dodgers essentially gave Pierre away to save $8 million over two years.

    The non arbitration offers to Wolf & Hudson, along with this move, speak volumes about the Dodgers and their current situation in my opinion. I assume that most moves made this offseason will be financially driven first, baseball driven second.

    My guess on the next move is a Russell Martin trade, mainly because he's due to get another bump in arbitration and the team probably feels they can replace him cheaper with AJ Ellis + a vet signed at a low salary.

    And despite what they've said so far, would not be shocked to see Sherrill dealt. Two closers making closer type money is a luxury I'm not sure they can afford these days.
