Hey, I agree that Juan Pierre deserves to play every day, and any MLB team could use another starter, but what are the Dodgers willing to pay for something we really don’t need that badly? Billingsley, Kuroda, Wolf, Kershaw, and Milton could be the best staff in the NL by August. Also, by August, Matt Kemp could be injured running through a wall or Andre Ethier could break a leg. Juan Pierre has proven valuable already, and as bad as he wants to play, I think he’d be just as happy (or happier) with another ring. Juan Pierre is a large part of the reason we still have the best record in baseball, even without Manny. We need to keep Juan at least through the end of the season. Now, if you are looking for another starter, who really is better than the five aforementioned? Not Pedro – There is a reason he hasn’t signed as yet. I’ll go a step further – name a starter we can get who is better than Jeff Weaver, Eric Stults or even James McDonald and Scott Elbert (who is now at AAA and being “showcased”). Making a move just for the sake of making a move is not always prudent. This just may be the time to stand pat. Let’s keep our prospects, so that we can have our cake and eat it too.
