Crede to the Dodgers?

Does Crede Make Sense For Dodgers?
South Side Sox wonders if the Dodgers will look to acquire White Sox third baseman Joe Crede now that Andy LaRoche is out two months with a torn thumb ligament and Nomar Garciaparra's status is day to day after getting hit in the wrist by a pitch.

Buster Olney says the Dodgers are likely to trade for a player like Crede because "the perception about Garciaparra, among scouts, is that his unusual throwing mechanics make it very difficult for him to play third base on a regular basis."

Previously, Los Angeles had been mentioned as a possible destination for Detroit third baseman Brandon Inge. But, as South Side Sox points out, "Crede brings more power, a better contact rate, and a smaller salary" than Inge. So why not Crede?

One more point in Crede's favor: because he's in the final year of his contract, he wouldn't block LaRoche at the position next season. Then again, Crede, who is coming off back surgery, is hardly a safe bet to stay healthy and the last thing the Dodgers need is three third basemen on the DL.


Come on Ned! Make it happen. Trade Kemp and/or Ethier for Crede. I'd love to see all three Dodgers third baseman on the DL!

Just sayin'
