Would you trade Izturis back to the Dodgers now?

Hey, all you Izturis detractors, why are you not lobbying for Izturis to be traded to the Dodgers?  (Jason Stark says the Boys in Blue are looking for a backup SS.  See below.)  Perhaps the Cards could replace Izturis with Brian Barden.

It is becoming increasingly clear that Brendan Ryan should remain a backup player.  He's only two years younger than Cesar, and Brendan has not done any better with the bat than Izturis.  In fact, their hitting stats are very similar, except Ryan doesn't even have one home run, and his ratio of strikeouts to walks is not nearly as good as Cesar's; and his fielding is not as consistently excellent, so actually Cesar has played better in the field and at bat.

 

Dodgers looking for SS

Posted by Jayson Stark

The Dodgers are now unsure about the future of two shortstops -- Nomar Garciaparra (who sprained a ligament in his left knee) and Rafael Furcal (back surgery) -- so they've resumed their search for another. But with Furcal expected to return in early September, the Dodgers don't seem to be focused on acquiring a front-line player. Instead, they've been inquiring about utility players -- bats off the bench -- who can fill in at short for a couple of weeks.
