Also the Dodgers have a glut of outfielders who they are willing to move. (Kemp and Ethier) I'm under the impression that their days in LA are coming to an end. Supposedly the Dodgers are even willing to pick up most of the money owed them. If we can acquire those guys for next to nothing plus have LA pick up the money, they would be an upgrade over our outfielders. (The Tank and DeAza.)
You have to trade from strength to get anything good back. Peavy is the obvious guy, if he can come back. Quintana could net a B level prospect.
