9 a.m.: The Clash

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Did he stay or did he go now?

Update: From Mark Gonzales of the Arizona Republic:

The Diamondbacks were still working past today's 10 a.m. (MST) deadline on a contract-extension plan that would land two-time All-Star right fielder Shawn Green from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Green, 32, was seeking an extension after the 2005 season, but the Diamondbacks were looking to cut his pay in half as part of the extension. Green is scheduled to make $16 million this season in the final year of a five-year contract.

As of 9:45 a.m., agent Greg Genske was awaiting a telephone call from Diamondbacks officials and said no decision had been made on his client.

Update 2: He stays.

Update 3: Sample lineup vs. righties:

Izturis, SS (still wouldn't mind seeing him drop back down)
Bradley, LF
Drew, CF
Kent, 2B
Green, RF
Choi, 1B
Valentin, 3B
Ross, C

Sample lineup vs. lefties:

Izturis, SS
Werth, LF
Drew, CF
Kent, 2B
Bradley, RF
Green, 1B
A. Perez, 3B (maybe he ends up batting second)
Ross, C

Obviously, there are several different combinations.
