Tue Aug 01, 2006 5:15 am

Just across the wire. Deal needs Bud's approval as more than $1 million will be changing hands. Intersting move by the Dodgers.

Kip Wells has been traded to the Rangers. No word on who we had to give up yet.

Todd Walker to the Padres for class A right-hander Jose Ceda.

Nothing up quite yet on ESPN.com.....

First impression, is that I'm not yet completely sold on the trade.....especially if Maddox is a rental, as I'm assuming he's on a one-year contract. Then again, with Betimit and Furcal on the left side of the infield, Izturis was likely the odd-man out, although Sunday he played 2B. Izturis has a hell of a glove, and combined with the departed Alex Cora, those two were the premier DP combo in the majors.

Anything about the Padres getting a 3B??? They were hard after Lowell, Ensberg, etc...

Can't see how this deal will help the Dodgers besides shaking up the clubhouse. Maddox is always a joy to watch pitch, but lets face it, he's getting old and really isn't more than a six inning pitcher anymore. Lugo might bring a spark, but they still have a ways to go to catch up with San Diego and Arizona.
