You can tell when the MLB offseason is in desperate need of movement when trade ideas start getting out of control. But this one from former General Manager involving the Dodgers has got to be one of the worst ideas we have seen in years.
Bowden recently wrote an article suggesting right-handed bat targets that the Dodgers could consider going after. While he did list the usual suspects, Bowden also threw in a curveball by adding Houston Astros shortstop into the mix. More from Bowden here:
Correa has proven that he’s a big-game performer thanks to five different dominant postseasons, in which he’s hit 17 home runs and driven in 50 runs in 63 games and 266 plate appearances. He’s just as clutch defensively, always making that acrobatic play to save runs and games.
Nevermind the fact the Correa was part of the Astros team that cheated Los Angeles out of the 2017 World Series. But Correa has a well-known feud with Dodgers players that include Joe Kelly as well as Cody Bellinger. If you remember, Correa went on record telling Bellinger to mind his own business and shut his mouth when he talked about the Astros.
Not only that, but the Dodgers do have Corey Seager manning shortstop for the time being. His contract is set to expire following the 2021 season, but there is absolutely no indication that LA will not do everything they can to extend him. Nice try Jim but maybe stick to circulating all of the Nolan Arenado rumors.
