The Angels of Anaheim have acquired Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers. This obviously takes him off the table for the Dodgers, not that the Dodgers were all that interested in him anyway.  Matt Garza is expected to remain with the Cubs after news of a MRI revealing  a slight fluid buildup in Garza’s triceps area. He is expected to miss his next start for sure and could miss up to two weeks. The Dodgers were all over Garza, but will now have to go back to the drawing board. Cliff Lee is reportedly not going to be dealt anytime soon, so the Dodgers can scratch him off the list.

So that leaves Ryan Dempster, but the Dodgers are not having any luck making progress towards a deal. Though reports came out earlier today that the Dodgers were working with the Cubs to acquire Dempster and Alfonso Soriano or Bryan LaHair in a package deal with Dempster. So far that hasn’t gotten very fair either. It seems the Cubs and Dodgers can’t agree on a whole lot right now, but word around the league is that Dempster will be a Dodger before the deadline passes.

It seems the Dodgers are moving on to James Shields and Josh Johnson, perhaps the Dodgers are moving on since they realize time is no longer on their side. The Angels are trying to move Ervin Santana and Vernon Wells,  let’s hope the Dodgers stay clear of that situation. That’s more of a Frank McCourt type move anyway, so we should be in good shape. Fingers crossed. The Marlins are also working hard to trade Carlos Zambrano and Carlos Lee. Yikes! I don’t which is worse.

As far as bats go, it looks like the Dodgers are deep in talks with the Twins about Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham. More to come. For now we Stephen Fife headed to the mound in search of a win over the first place Giants. Go blue!
