Odds & Ends: Rivera, Sabathia, Mark Sweeney

Some Odds & Ends for this Sunday morning:

  • Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times proposes the Dodgers offer middle reliever Cory Wade or Single-A fireballer Javy Guerra for OF Juan Rivera.  Despite already having a logjam in the outfield, Rivera would provide the power the Dodgers need.  As he sees it, the Angels have a propensity for stockpiling arms and Rivera is only gathering dust behind Gary Matthews Jr.  Fun fact from Shaikin: it's been 32 years since the last Dodgers/Angels trade.
  • The Baltimore Sun's Peter Schmuck tells Orioles fans not to expect C.C. Sabathia to be signed by the O's this offseason.
  • Tony Jackson of the Los Angeles Daily News says Mark Sweeney may draw the short straw when Rafael Furcal and Nomar Garciaparra return from the DL within the next week.  The Dodgers would release the 38 year old.
  • Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times notes all indications are that the Rays will be making some moves before the deadline.  They have the payroll flexibility, prospect depth, and would be happy to pickup draft picks from any big free agent they can't re-sign.  They're looking for a veteran starting pitcher, a late inning reliever, and a right handed hitting outfielder.
