Denker As PTBNL

我一直有在追蹤的Travis Denker被當作PTBNL送去Giants,完成對Mark Sweeney的交易,換言之即Colletti拿Denker去換一袋球。

其實這對Dodgers來說損失並不大,去年Dodgers球團不知吃錯什麼藥,硬是惡搞讓Denker和Blake DeWitt交換守備位置,搞得兩人通通找不到手套也找不到球棒,繳出相當難看的成績,也讓兩人的球員生涯似乎都delay了一年(當然,也可能沒有交換守備位置仍然打不好,不過歷史沒有如果論...),而現在在Dodgers一線prospects慢慢(真慢...)站上MLB之後,接下來最近的這群比不上前輩的年輕人本來就該是Dodgers拿來交易的籌碼,也因此我並不可惜Denker走人:他雖然可能有power、有選球,但他守備不夠好,也沒有上過AA證明過自己有能力適應高階minor league(但我認為Dodgers今年放棄他了,故意延誤他升級的機會),未來還是未知數。

只能祝福他有更好的發展機會,像ex-Dodgers prospects Edwin JacksonJoel Hanrahan或者幾隻還在minor的Justin RuggianoSergio Pedroza,繼續努力期待有朝一日能做客Dodger Stadium打球。

這個交易比起Betemit換Proctor那筆來的好,首先Dodgers二壘這個位置ML上有Kent霸佔位置,短期之內即使是Tony Abreu也取代不了他的攻擊火力,甚者Kent還有一年option等著被執行(或者大家都知道的,550PA換免費再來一年,目前Dodgers已賽130,Kent 466PA,on pace for 580PA),此外能替補的對象還有Chin-Lung Hu,以及愛到最高點的Colletti & Little Lover (喵的,之前只擁有Ned老婆的裸照,現在大概翻出Grady老婆的裸照了...),Dodgers並不缺緊急能上MLB的現貨;至於Denker之下的後輩們最出名的當然就是Ivan DeJesus Jr.,能守游擊的DeJesus沒理由不能補二壘的位置,再下面還有Dodgers高層期望甚深(換句話說,就是有愛)的Preston Mattingly (但Mattingly的守備似乎比Denker更爛上一級...),整個農場二游並不缺prospect,尤其不缺沒有愛的年輕人。

而Betemit交易鳥蛋的地方在Dodgers明明缺三壘手,又把此時最適合先發的人選拿去換一袋球...

I feel quite hopeless tooooooo.....

I am actually hoping they suck the rest of the way so that NC & GL will both be fired.

Take care,

Wilson

Suck or not, due to the wild-card spot, sth. called "hope" will be still lingering until middle of Sep. And everybody can pretend they are doing sth. meaningful. WTF.

I don't really care much about the Colletti-Little baseball, or so-called the Giant-Bosox era...

I care about the true young blues, our prospects, and those who were once our prospects.

Madboy,

Well..... I just always feel that our organization never knew how to properly handle our prospects....

Paul Konerko was supposed to be hitting clean-up for us until he retired.....

Edwin Jackson was rushed and....frankly was never the same...

Pedro wasn't supposed to be the greatest pitcher in Montreal Expos' history... etc etc

Take care,

Wilson

DeJesus 是值得期待的傢伙嗎?我怎麼覺得他像是 Cesar Izturis 那個等級?

madboy said...

嗯...他是Izturis那類型的選手,不過連Hu都能打出像Furcal那一型的成績了,DeJesus更年輕(20y/o @A+),沒理由不期待再來一隻...

至少可以拿來騙騙人。
