The Dodgers can’t entertain a Kenley Jansen trade, right?

A contending team — let alone a team 2 1/2 games out of first place in its division and 2 1/2 games up in the wild card standings — would be insane to trade an elite relief pitcher. But after seeing what the Cubs gave up for Aroldis Chapman on Monday, the Dodger front office has to be wondering, “What could we get for Kenley Jansen?” Let me preface this by saying there...
