Podcast: should Mariners trade Jarrod Washburn for Juan Pierre?

mari4 030.jpg
Lots of discussion on this blog today about reports out of Los Angeles that the Dodgers are interesting in acquiring Mariners pitcher Jarrod Washburn. One of the pieces the Dodgers could be looking to move is speedy outfielder Juan Pierre, a perennial threat on the basepaths who could naturally fit in to Seattle’s left field slot after the season-ending injury to Endy Chavez.
It should be stated right off the bat that although Pierre has put up a career-best on-base-plus-slugging percentage of .825 so far, his batting average on balls put in play is a whopping .368 — about 80 points above average. So, his numbers might be due for a tumble. That’s for starters. Then again, some folks feel the same way about Washburn’s totals.
Click here to listen to what I think of that idea.
