Dodgers SP Brad Penny Joins Trade Bait Rankings

Mindful of SP Brad Penny's late-season meltdown, noises coming out of Los Angeles suggest that the Dodgers would add Penny's name to a list of other highly tradeable pitchers around the majors such as Freddy Garcia and Javier Vasquez of the White Sox, and Jason Jennings of the Rockies. The Rockies would love to keep Jennings, but, unlike rotation mate Jeff Francis, Jennings is not about to give himself up too cheaply when he can always test the free agent market after next season. Fine strategy, just don't have a down year. God forbid, don't become injured between now and then.
