Dodgers Acquire Belliard from Nationals
The Dodgers acquired infielder Ronnie Belliard from the Washington Nationals for right handed minor league pitcher Luis Garcia and a player to be named later. The 34-year old Bronx, NY native has a .246 batting average with five homers and 22 RBI in 86 games. Belliard started slow but in the month of August has posted a .361 average with five doubles and three homers. So there you have it: this year's Julio Lugo.
