Ned Colletti said he is pursuing a trade that would potentially improve the Dodger's offense.
BEST OF MAXIM
No, really. That's what really happened. Ned Colletti actually an older player for younger players.Dana Eveland, last season's September "sensation" was sent to the Baltimore Orioles today for left-handed pitcher Jarret Martin and outfielder Tyler Henson.Eveland threw 29 2/3 innings of solid ball for the Dodgers, and Colletti somehow turned that into two players...
Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that yesterday’s rumored trade for a bat is now dead. I’m sure there were some out there who had pipe dreams of getting an impact player in the deal, but honestly, it’s just relief that the Dodgers will not be trading Chad Billingsley for Alfonso Soriano or something ridiculous.
Unfortunately, Ned Colletti did mention...
I understand that the bankruptcy stage in Los Angeles is a big prohibitor of why Colletti is doing what he is doing this winter. No matter how much it pains me to see the Dodgers pass up on Prince Fielder. Opportunities to find a franchise first baseman, on the open market, while being at the prime baseball age of 27 just doesn't happen. Colletti was quoted yesterday...
Ned Colletti, who is attempting to put together the oldest and possibly least run producing backup infield in history, is doing just fine making that a reality. The Dodgers have reported signing super utility man Jerry Hairston Jr. to a 2-Year $6 million year contract with some incentives to shore up the Dodgers bench. Hairston who hit .270/.344/.383 playing for the Nationals and...
TMZ recently reported that first baseman James Loney was arrested on November 14th and was apparently none too pleased about it.
Loney — who plays 1st base for the Dodgers — was arrested on November 14th … because cops say he appeared to be under the influence of drugs after he swerved into a Toyota around 6pm … and then careened into a Mercedes and a Mini.
According to the...
Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said he met with a handful of clubs at the Winter Meetings on Tuesday looking for "an upgrade, a position player," but that he would listen if a club offered a late-inning reliever.
The club is cutting payroll in 2012, so taking on Prince Fielder or anyone else who would demand a large salary is not feasible, the general manager says.Reporting from Dallas -- Prince Fielder is there for the taking. The Dodgers aren't playing, but Ned Colletti had a thought.
Remember not long ago GM Ned Colletti was mentioning the names of Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols? The very thought of those players made the eyes of some Dodgers fans light up, but if you follow the team very closely, you knew it was the wishful thoughts of a street urchin who had his nose pressed against the window of the candy store.
But cash-strapped and in bankruptcy this winter, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti set out with a modest plan to work within a slashed budget and executed it.
Ned Colletti has signed Jerry Hairston Jr. to a 2 year deal worth 6 million dollars because…of course. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that he’ll make $2.25 million in 2012 and $3.75 million in 2013, which means the contract is back loaded because…of course.
In all fairness, Hairston is certainly versatile and useful, as he can play 2B, 3B, SS, CF, and...
So day two of the 2011 Dallas Winter Meetings has come to an end, and thankfully the Dodgers didn't sign Manny Ramirez to a two-year deal. Manny is planning on filing for reinstatement soon, and with the Dodgers still looking for a big bat you know Colletti is already scheming on the idea of trying to replicate 2008 all over again. Okay so I am joking, the sad thing is...

Dodgers, Aaron Harang Making Progress On Deal
Eric Stephen at True Blue LA has it right: by trying to stay afloat in 2012, Ned Colletti may be sinking the ship in 2013. Hurry up and buy the team, Magic!

Because of the Dodgers' bankruptcy, GM Ned Colletti is working with a 2012 payroll cut of about $20 million from 2011, to less than $90 million. As a result, he's been paying up for supplemental players -- Juan Rivera, Chris Capuano, Mark Ellis, Jerry Hairston Jr. and Matt Treanor -- while stuck on the sidelines for big names like Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols.
