While there is still “no real evidence” that the Los Angeles Dodgers are shopping or making available outfielder Andre Ethier, the Seattle Mariners are one team that could have interest, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. still no real evidence andre ethier is being shopped, or even available. but #mariners are 1 team that could have interest. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) December 28, 2012 It was rumored earlier this offseason that the Dodgers would make Ethier available and sign one of the remaining free agent outfielders to fill his roster spot. However, that was when Nick Swisher and Cody Ross remained on the open market. At this point, the only high-profile outfielder remaining is Michael Bourn, and he’s a center fielder. Since Matt Kemp currently patrols center for the Dodgers, the likelihood of them dealing Ethier to acquire Bourn doesn’t appear to be high. Rather than pursue Ethier, who seems unlikely to be dealt this winter, the Mariners could continue to get creative to fill their want for additional offense. Seattle could look to the Arizona Diamondbacks, who are expected to trade Justin Upton or Jason Kubel, or another team interested in dealing an outfielder. The Mariners could also go out and sign Bourn or free agent slugger Adam LaRoche.

Around The Web: Dodgers Curse Of Plenty, Bench Depth, A.J./Belisario Arbitration

Grantland: Jonah Keri on the riches of the Dodgers and the curse that comes along with it. That, in a nutshell, is The Curse of Plenty. The Dodgers have more money to spend than anyone, without enough top players to go after. They’ve clogged their roster with merely decent talent at multiple positions because their general manager is impulsive and overeager to spend that money...

Dodgers' Ramirez moves back to natural position, shortstop

When the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Hanley Ramirez from the Marlins last July, they traded for a third baseman -- but got a shortstop. Ramirez unhappily moved to third base for the Marlins last spring after Miami signed free agent shortstop Jose Reyes. The entire experiment blew up with a disastrous season, and both players have since been traded. With the Dodgers, Ramirez...

Dodgers Find Pair of Power Lefties

In 2012, four left-handed pitchers touched 93-plus on my radar gun. In Onelki Garcia and Chris Reed, Dodgers prospects accounted for half the list. This is nothing new. Two minor league baseball seasons living in the Atlanta area has yielded many hard-throwing Dodgers prospects. What’s new is every top prospect I’ve seen from the Dodgers has been right-handed before this. Big...

My First Two Corey Seager Autos

I've finally completed a Trifecta for Corey Seager, the Dodgers' first round pick in the 2012 Draft. I was happy when Ned Colletti and his staff made the decision to draft the shortstop/third baseman - see, I don't always hate on Uncle Ned - and I've begun a thus far modest collection of the young Blue Crew member.Though Seager finally has a couple of Dodgers'...

Podcast: 'Dugout Blues' episode 16 - Dodgers, Rasmussen, Puig, Mattingly

On this, the final 2012 episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (L.A. Dugout) and I talk about the "big" trade that sent John Ely to Houston for Rob Rasmussen. We both like the deal. We also answer some reader questions, which were excellent this week. Will Brian Wilson (yes, that Brian Wilson) end up with the Dodgers? What's up with Alex Castellanos...

Don't worry, the Dodgers aren't getting Kyle Lohse, plus other news and links

The Hot Stove is cooling down a bit, but some are doing their best to keep it going. Like Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Cafardo came up with this gem today regarding Kyle Lohse and the Dodgers. "The Dodgers may jump in, even with Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang slated for the back end of the rotation." Lazy journalism strikes again. First, the speculation...
