According to the Denver Post, the Rockies are trying to sell the idea of taking on Marcus Giles to the Dodgers. Jayson Nix has won over the second base job and has people very excited about the future middle infield tandem of Tulowitzki and Nix. Giles has had a good spring and has reestablished some of his trade value, but does not have room on the Rockies roster. He is not very versatile, but the Dodgers could use a second baseman to platoon with Kent. And although they have Tony Abreu, he is already filling a spot at third because Garciaparra and LaRoche are down. I recently put in a call to someone close to the Dodgers, and talks are supposedly a lot farther along than people think. I think a deal like this will go down this week, because both teams needs to make decisions about their roster soon.
