The Dodgers are telling teams shortstop Dee Gordon is available, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Yep, the Dodgers former top prospect is officially on the trade block.
Gordon, 24, had a very strong debut in 2011, but failed to live up to expectations in 2012 being outplayed by fellow Dodgers Elian Herrera and Luis Cruz. Gordon hit just .228/.280/.281 in 330 plate appearances...
Show me the money. Or at least that is what the Dodgers are telling FOX.
Earlier this week, it was reported the Los Angeles Dodgers were going to receive $6 billion over 25 years from FOX Sports for local cable television rights. FOX’s current deal with the Dodgers, which amounts to about $40 million per year, expires after the 2013 season. The belief was FOX wanted to ink...

It’s not because he is coming off a 48 saves season, that was 2010. Sure he had 36 in 2011, but he also missed a big part of the season due to injury...
The Dodgers met with Zack Greinke this week, according to a person familiar with the situation who wasnt authorized to comment on the matter.
Greinke is the top starting pitcher on the free-agent market and is expected to sign a nine-figure contract, something the Dodgers have the wherewithal to offer him.
The Dodgers are also interested in Anibal Sanchez.
If the Dodgers fail...
RONALD BELISARIO , turns 30 on Dec. 31, reliever
Grantland: Part 1 of Jonah Keri ranking the 50 best players in terms of trade value. No Dodgers here yet, but Carlos Santana finds a spot at #43.
The other two catcher rankings are the ones likely to elicit the most hate mail. In the first draft of this list, I had Santana considerably higher. Twenty-six-year-old switch-hitting catcher, career .806 OPS, signed for peanuts at four...
