Found November 26, 2012 on Feelin' Kinda Blue:
You can never have too much pitching, but I think the Dodgers might take this notion a bit too far. The Dodgers are considered the front-runners this winter by multiple sources for the services of Zack Greinke. With the Dodgers' rotation already full, someone is going to have to go if the team does indeed sign the right-hander. But who? The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw, who absolutely isn't going anywhere. Other than him, the remaining five pitchers could all be trade candidates. That leaves Chris Capuano, Aaron Harang, Josh Beckett, Ted Lilly and, yes, Chad Billingsley. Let's break this down a bit. Capuano The 34-year-old southpaw is coming off one of the best seasons of his career and probably has the most trade value of the five.

A Masterful Masterpiece of Chad Billingsley.

I'm a HUGE Chad Billingsley fan, and though he's perhaps the most polarizing Dodger of the last decade this side of Jonathan Broxton - I leave out Juan Pierre because the love for him was insane to begin with - I don't judge him on body language or any garbage like that. His stats speak for themselves, and he's been a very good pitcher over his LA career, and one...

How much money do the Dodgers really have to spend?

Stop me if you've heard this one before, "The Dodgers are considered the front runners to sign Zack Greinke."  Or was it Hiroki Kuroda?  Or Anibal Sanchez?  Or Kyuji Fujikawa?  Or Kevin Youkilis?  Or how about just every free agent ever? It seems that no matter what position a player plays or how much money he wants, the Dodgers want him.  Their greed and...

Melting That Radiant Red Ice.

Sometimes a set comes out and you just know that no matter how hard you try money will soon be leaving your person.

They've gone for a pretty penny, as you might imagine.But thankfully...
