As it had a few weeks ago, word came out today that the D-backs are interested in Hiroki Kuroda. If they were able to sign him, the move would be a win for both player and team, and would round the D-backs roster out nicely.
From the D-backs perspective, Kuroda may be the best starter on the market. He is reportedly looking for $12-13 million a season, which would make him the D...

I understand that the bankruptcy stage in Los Angeles is a big prohibitor of why Colletti is doing what he is doing this winter. No matter how much it pains me to see the Dodgers pass up on Prince Fielder. Opportunities to find a franchise first baseman, on the open market, while being at the prime baseball age of 27 just doesn't happen. Colletti was quoted yesterday...

Buster Olney of ESPN tweeted today that the Los Angeles Dodgers and 2011 NL CY Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw have begun contract extension talks. If I’m a Dodgers fan I’d be pretty excited about this but I wouldn’t expect this to happen anytime soon. One main reason Kershaw is that this winter is only Clayton’s first go at arbitration which means he’s still under...

Per Howard Cole of the Register, the Dodgers have signed Aaron Harang to a 2-year deal, dollars currently unknown. I remember Harang mainly from his start with the A's, but he spent most of the last decade in Cincinnati following a trade for Jose Guillen, of all players.
