    No thanks, also one of the big hangups with Gagne is that most of the teams trying to get him(Yankees for example) aren't going to use him as their closer. Which hurts Gagne since his contract is very performance driven. Boras wants teams that trade for him who plan to use him as a set up man to pay that incentive right away in order for Gagne to waive his no trade.

    I don't think he can veto a trade to the Dodgers.

    ESPN Insider reports that the Dodgers and Yankees continue to discuss a possible swap of pitcher Scott Proctor for infielder Wilson Betemit.

    I wouldn't neccessarily object to that deal but it's not going to turn us into the favorite to win the West, that's for damn sure.

    True. But it would assure us that Seanez won't be in the game in the 7th inning of a close game.

    Eh, Proctor isn't a much better option than Seanez at this point.

    I'd feel better bringing back Gagne even if it meant giving him a big payday this year and sacrificing one of the kids currently playing in Vegas. I don't see the drawback to adding a big salary for a contract that ends this year.

    Braves are going for the WS win this year. We're giving up a TON of young talent with these trades.

    I never saw Blantons name mentioned...ever.

    The Dodgers and Athletics have been talking about a package of three frontline prospects for Blanton, and on Monday night, they were in the process of mixing and matching possible combinations. Blanton makes just $380,000 this year, and will be eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter. Teams rarely trade young and cheap and established starting pitchers in the current market, which explains why Oakland is asking for a high price in return for Blanton.

    3 frontline prospects? **** that. I've liked Blanton for a while and he has really come into his own this year but no way do I give up an Ethier, Hu, and Meloan for him (and that would probably be the min 3 prospects OAK would take). Just shoot me if LA parts with Kershaw or Kemp.

    I agree, 3 prospects is nuts but as FoxSports suggests, I might trade one of our up and coming pitchers for a guy that has shown he can perform in the bigs. I'm just surprised to even see Blanton's name mentioned.

    Here's the Blanton trade possibility on FoxSports.

    FoxSports

    The A's apparently are willing to trade Blanton without acquiring any of the Dodgers' young major leaguers — a group that includes outfielder Matt Kemp, first baseman James Loney and reliever Jonathon Broxton.

    But in return, the A's want at least one young starting pitcher who is close to the majors, and because of that the teams have struggled to find a match.

    Class AA left-hander Scott Elbert, considered the Dodgers' top pitching prospect, underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder in June and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

    Class A right-hander Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers' first-round pick in 2006, is another coveted young pitcher, but he is only 19 and probably a minimum of two years away from the majors.
