Orioles Targeting Bell?
Acquiring reliever George Sherrill seems to be the most attractive option for the Dodgers because the Orioles are rumored to want a package in return that centers on Double-A slugging third baseman Josh Bell and not any key players on the current Dodgers active roster. To get either of the two front-line starters on the block — Toronto’s Roy Halladay or Cleveland’s Cliff Lee — it is believed the Dodgers must give up either Clayton Kershaw or Chad Billingsley out of their current starting rotation. They could make a push for Lee if the Indians would accept a package of prospects in lieu of either Kershaw or Billingsley. — Ken Gurnick
