Another Trade Rumor?

BTW, I've just been notified that this twitter is a fake account.  So, I suppose you should disregard this post.  On the other hand, Jennings is the kind of player I would prefer over Carlos Lee so I guess I'll chalk this up to wishful thinking.  Right on the heals of the failed Carlos Lee trade comes a fresh rumor that the Dodgers are now talking with the Tampa Bay Rays.  Apparently, young and speedy outfielder Desmond Jennings is in our sights.  Per ESPN analyst Terry Francona on twitter:

Who knows if this deal gets done, but at least we know Jennings can't say no.  He's a young player who would be under team control until 2018.  Desmond bats lead off, has a good glove, and hasn't committed an error in his short MLB career.  Furthermore, I think I would prefer adding a young bat like Jennings over a aging veteran like Lee.  Below are stats for Jennings, via Baseball Reference.

UPDATE:  Here is a video featuring Jennings highlights from 2011.
