Show me the money. Or at least that is what the Dodgers are telling FOX.
Earlier this week, it was reported the Los Angeles Dodgers were going to receive $6 billion over 25 years from FOX Sports for local cable television rights. FOX’s current deal with the Dodgers, which amounts to about $40 million per year, expires after the 2013 season. The belief was FOX wanted to ink...
I am excited. I am about excited as anyone else about what the Dodgers can potentially score this offseason. I am also a bit worried, so I guess that makes me anxious? Feelings aside, we have to examine if a spending a boat load of money is going to get the Dodgers into the post-season and a championship berth. That is the goal, isn’t it? The immediate goal appears to be showing...
Will things ever look up again for Hanley Ramirez? Image courtesy of Brothm. I was having a conversation with a friend and league-mate recently and he was talking about who he was thinking about keeping. One of the names he mentioned was Hanley Ramirez. I have to admit that I was a little surprised at that, as Hanley has lost a lot of luster over the last few years. Still, he justified...
Hanley Ramirez is officially switching back to shortstop.
After he moved to third base last season in Miami to accommodate shortstop Jose Reyes, the Dodgers are sliding him back to his original position.

But the Dodgers should attempt to acquire him -- even if they do sign Zack Greinke.
Shields, 31 in 15 days, is a legitimate No. 2 or No...
It isn't too often a Cy Young award winner is traded less than a month after winning the award, but the Mets are trying to do just that with R.A. Dickey.
The Dodgers have interest in the 38-year-old knuckleballer after having checked in with the Mets today at the Winter Meetings.
Normally, going after a Cy Young award winner would be a no-brainer, but there are a lot...
Today was perhaps the calm before the storm. No doubt Dodgers GM Ned Colletti was working all angles today, but here is a quick recap of what leaked out of Nashville today.
Dee Gordon is being shopped by the Dodgers, my guess is in a package for a starting pitcher, James Shields anyone? I will not be shocked at all if Gordon is traded in the next couple of days. Ken Rosenthal says...

The Los Angeles Dodgers are “determined” to sign free agent

the right-hander his largest offer of the winter, reports Jon Heyman of
But it seems pretty clear who is going to offer Greinke the
