The Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in just about every free agent this offseason, as they have bags of cash stacked up waiting to be spent. The latest name to surface is Anibal Sanchez, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.
The Dodgers have been linked to Zack Greinke and Hiroki Kuroda, as they look to probably add one free agent arm to the mix of Aaron Harang, Chris Capuano, Josh Beckett, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly and Clayton Kershaw. Either Harang or Capuano could be traded, but Billingsley and Lilly are both question marks with injuries. Lilly is recovering from surgery while Bills is attempting to avoid Tommy John surgery.
Sanchez will be in high demand after a great postseason for the Tigers. For the season, Sanchez went 9-13 with a 3.86 ERA, 7.7 K/9 and 1.267 WHIP.

The Dodgers are already in hot pursuit of Zack Greinke, Hiroki Kuroda, and James Shields, now enter Anibal Sanchez. The Dodgers figure to be the busiest team in free agency this winter. The Dodgers have money to spend and are not willing to settle for anything less than a World Series in 2013.

After toiling in the minors for parts of nine seasons with just a couple cups of coffee to show for it, all the while watching the Dodgers treat the catcher position like it was wholly unimportant (trading Carlos Santana, allowing Joe Torre to run Russell Martin into the ground, and Rod Barajas not only being on the team but starting games as the primary backstop), A.J...

Could the Red Sox be in line for a reunion seven years in the making?

Anibal Sanchez is hoping to cash in on a strong postseason performance with the Detroit Tigers this offseason. When I say cash in, I really mean cash in. Big time. As in $90 million over six years.
Really? For Sanchez?
We are talking about a starting pitcher who boasts a career record of three games under .500 with an ERA in the upper three’s. Serviceable, certainly. But $90 million...
