Blue Jays to Dodgers: No! You Can't Have Marco Scutaro!

This probably should be taken with a grain of salt, but I still think it's hilarious:

The Dodgers are now unsure about the future of two shortstops --Nomar Garciaparra (who sprained a ligament in his left knee) and Rafael Furcal (back surgery) -- so they've resumed their search for another.

[T]hey've been inquiring about utility players -- bats off the bench -- who can fill in at short for a couple of weeks. One name they apparently were shot down on this week: Toronto's Marco Scutaro.

Now, see, this is what happens when you combine two key contenders from our Worst GM Poll from this Spring. The Dodgers' Ned Colletti decides his solution to the spectacularly obvious problem of having Angel Berroa play shortstop in the midst of a pennant race is... Marco Scutaro, naturally. And Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi, involved in his annual run at an 84-win, 4th place season--which, of course, absolutely requires a 33 year-old utility infielder with an 86 career OPS+--shoots him down. 

Who knows if this is true, but I hope it is, because it's perfect.
