Today was perhaps the calm before the storm. No doubt Dodgers GM Ned Colletti was working all angles today, but here is a quick recap of what leaked out of Nashville today. Dee Gordon is being shopped by the Dodgers, my guess is in a package for a starting pitcher, James Shields anyone? I will not be shocked at all if Gordon is traded in the next couple of days. Ken Rosenthal says that the Dodgers will only trade Gordon for a significant return. The Dodgers are engaged with the New York Mets about R.A. Dickey. I am kinda thinking pass here, is it just me? This guy is 38, even in knuckleball years that’s still old. I just don’t think 2013 will have the same fortune for Dickey. Colletti said he’s yet to make offers to any free agents, writes Dylan Hernandez.  Colletti prefers to “push things to the point that it’s in their court to engage us in a serious negotiation.” Colletti did meet with Casey Close today, Close represents Zack Greinke. The Dodgers seem all but destined to sign Greinke no matter the cost, reports Jon Heyman.  Heyman asked a Dodgers person about the team’s budget, to which the reply was, “What budget?”  Casey Close is about to get a nice little commission.  The Rangers, Nationals, Angels, and Braves are some of the other teams showing interest in Greinke, but Heyman indicates the Dodgers are the heavy favorite. The Angels appear to have moved on from Grienke after the Rangers and Dodgers scared them off. Yeah, when I read that it made me chuckle. Dylan Hernandez says Colletti is working with 10-12 teams about potential trades. I told you so. Do not rule anything out ladies and gentlemen. This team could look a lot different over the next several weeks. “We’re in on so many players that we might need two or three teams,” joked Dodgers GM Ned Colletti today at the Winter Meetings in Nashville. Colletti says his team has gone from being an afterthought to being the go-to team whether they’re involved or not. James Shields is still one of the Dodgers favorite trade targets right now. And why not? He’s mine too. Do it Ned, do it!
