Capuano could be a fit for Boston
— Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) December 9, 2012
The Dodgers entered the offseason amid reports that they’d
be willing to trade a veteran starter or two in order to make room for
potential acquisitions. They’ve since signed a pair of starters, including Zack
Greinke, which may increase their efforts to deal Capuano.
Meanwhile, the Red Sox are in the market for starting
pitching, and Cafardo believes the veteran left-hander could be a fit. Over 33
starts spanning 198 1/3 innings with the Dodgers last season Capuano posted an
ERA of 3.72 to go with a 1.220 WHIP. The 34-year-old is set to make $6 million
next year and his contract includes a $6 million option for the 2014 season
with a $1 million buyout.

Ryu will join Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley in the Dodgers’ formidable...
It must be good to be a Dodger fan nowadays. With Frank McCourt a distant memory, a roster full of talent, and an ownership group willing to use its vast resources to aggressively sign free agents, it seems that optimism abounds once again at Chavez Ravine.

The baseball off-season hot stove is heating up. A lot of teams are being very active early in free agency.
The Los Angeles Dodgers seem to be the most active so far out of all the teams in baseball. The Philadelphia Phillies have also been making some noise as well, based on the fact that both teams have the money to do so.
