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 is unsourced, likely a concoction of Cafardo's own doing. Second, there's no mention of that Zack Greinke guy. Third, Capuano and Harang are slated for trades, not the end of the rotation (all quiet on that front as of now).
Naturally, MLB Trade Rumors picked it up. However, it didn't make as big a deal about as CBS Sports did.
"He would be an upgrade for the Dodgers over Chris Capuano and Aaron
Harang, both of whom they have already attempted to trade. The team's
rotation is already crowded, however, so it's unclear if they would
actually spend a significant amount of money for the 34-year-old Lohse."...
