2008 Dodgers preview

Much like Ken Gurnick of MLB.com looked back at the previous 12 months in La-La Land, he has now posted a brief preview of the 2008 season. Nothing really monumental to report, just the basic comings and goings after the '07 season. One funny thing to look at is the "Arrivals" and "Departures" section. It's amazing just how many veterans were sent packing once the season was up.

Another small tidbit that I saw was that Juan Pierre has a no-trade clause. I must have missed that one along the way because I don't recall reading that elsewhere. Combine that with 4 years and $36.5 million remaining, and you can see why trading him is darn near impossible. But, perhaps if he's told he's the 4th outfielder going into the season, I would think he could still be a starter on plenty of other teams, leading to a trade.
