Unfounded Rumors

I'm told that one of the shows on ESPN 710 in Los Angeles reported a couple of interesting Dodger trade rumors Saturday morning.  I didn't hear the program myself so I can't vouch for it, but it's a slow news day so let me toss it out there.

Supposedly, Ned Colletti is looking a couple of proposals over.  The first would be Barry Zito and Mark Kotsay for Chad Billingsley, Greg Miller, and Joel Guzman.  There are a host of reasons not to buy into this one.  Billingsley looks like a front-rotation prospect, best in the Dodger system according to Baseball America.  21 year-old Guzman ranks third, while Miller is recovering from a couple of shoulder surgeries.  While I really don't think the Dodgers would be that shortsighted, this deal would seem hard to resist for Billy Beane.


The other rumor apparently tossed out there by the radio station was Odalis Perez and Hee Seop Choi for Aubrey Huff and a player to be named later.  As you may recall, I've been a big proponent of the Rays acquiring Choi.  While their starting staff is hurting for a vet like Perez, this doesn't seem like the time for Tampa Bay to take on his $15MM salary over the next two seasons.

Pretty wacky stuff, but that's why I tossed it under Unfounded Rumors for Sunday night amusement.
