Considering our obvious needs...

what are you're opinions on trying to trade for Dallas McPherson? I'm not looking for sarcastic comments; I'm genuinely interested. Why? Because I think it would be a very smart move.

the guy is hitting .310/.422/.710 with 28 homers, 59 RBIs and an OPS of 1.132 in AAA this year. Obviously, he can tear up the minor leagues, but with a season like this, is there any real concern that he couldn't do it in the majors? The guy is entering his prime (he's 27), he's cheap and he's a fantastic power hitter. we need all of those things.

i believe that we've been one bat short of a serious playoff run for the last 6 years (since the '02 run). we were all told that McPherson was the guy to fill that void. with the constant injuries, i can understand why the Halos cut him.... but he was obviously fixed by the surgery. was there any harm in bringing him back for >$1 million?

if we did go after an obtain McPherson, we could see some fun changes in Anaheim. Dallas could take over third and we could do a few things from there... Izturis or Aybar can become trade bait if Figgins moves to SS. We could sit our OF Black Hole of Matthews/Anderson a heckuva lot more if Figgins moved into the LF/RF role. We could even move Howie out to left and let Figgz take over 2B, which actually may be the best idea.

i do believe that he would come cheap. it would take maybe willits and another minor leaguer, or even 2 mid-level prospects. we have the guys to spare, we need a bat like his and his presence could push us past the first round.

Take a minute and really think about this.
