The real question is, can we trade Laroche simply for cash, as in someone else taking on his salary? My gut says that's the most likely outcome this offseason/next spring.
Teams will take LaRoche. He will return from his injury.
They just won't give up much. A healthy LaRoche wouldn't fetch much, one coming off a year off gets even less.
I suppose it's possible. There isn't going to be much of a market, though. Isn't Lee going to be a free agent again?
Maybe we can convince the loser of the Prince Fielder sweepstakes to take LaRoche. It's all about selling him when he's healthy.
