Dodgers willing to move Gordon

The Dodgers are willing to trade All-Star infielder Dee Gordon, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman.

The 26-year-old Gordon is coming off a breakout season in which he led the National League in triples (12) and stolen bases (64) while hitting .289 to earn his first All-Star appearance.

His on-base percentage — .326 last season and .314 for his career — could be an issue for the new Dodgers’ regime, however. Sherman notes Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and Co. prefer high on-base guys.

There’s bound to be interest in Gordon, given lack of shortstops in today’s game. Although Gordon played strictly at second last year, he came up as a shortstop and played there from 2011-13.

The Dodgers’ other second base options should they move Gordon include Alex Guerrero and Justin Turner.

IF GORDON IS SO GOOD, WHY DO THEY WANT TO TRADE HIM? BECAUSE HE HAS A WEINER ARM, NO POWER, and HE ISN’T HALF AS GOOD AS HE THINKS HE IS. JUST LIKE YASIEL PUKE, HE IS ALSO WORTHLESS

THE ENTIRE DODGER TEAM IS OVER RATED. MATTINGLY WILL LOSE HIS JOB BEFORE THE SEASON IS OVER. I LOVE TO HATE THE DODGERS. ONLY DECENT PLAYER IS KERSHAW, AND HE ONLY PITCHES EVERY FIFTH DAY.

hows this for a trade… Gordon to Seattle for Erasmo Ramirez, Jesus Montero, Brad Miller,and Stefen Romero. Dodgers get Jesus Montero and Stefen Romero, who will develop and Brad Miller who has speed and power and the average will improve and Erasmo Ramirez could transition to the bullpen which would probley be better for him.

I suggest the NY press keep their rumor noses out of the West Coast. Stupid idea with no foundation.

i don’t think gordon should be traded, the Dodgers need to get another person to fill the lead off spot.thats three holes in the lineup so far with kemp trades being talked about and the shortstop position being vacant
