Pierre to Reds?

Dodgers outfielder Juan Pierre struggled this season and reportedly upset manager Joe Torre. Although Pierre has 28.5 million dollars left on his contract, the Dodgers have reportedly expressed a willingness to take on the majority of his salary if a team was willing to add an extra prospect or two. With that said, is there any team willing to take Juan Pierre? The Reds, managed by Pierre's good friend and former manager Dusty Baker, are a possibility. He would shape the top of their lineup and give Jay Bruce and Joey Votto more opportunities to drive in runners.
Pierre is still a solid player and should not be over looked despite hitting .276. Not playing everyday and given no opportunity to start everyday hurt him, and he should bounce back once he gets an everyday role.
