Rumors, rumors, and more rumors make up the major theme today. Some big names have been floated, and could a rival team steal Zack Greinke from the Dodgers?
- The Dodgers may be a “sleeper team” to sign Jason Heyward.
- The team is also interested in trading for Shelby Miller.
- Don’t expect the team to hire a new manager until after the weekend.
- The two final candidates for the managerial position “speaks volumes about the organization’s direction.”
- The Dodgers are pursuing free agent reliever Darren O’Day “big time”.
- A report from Andy Van Slyke suggests that Clayton Kershaw wants Yasiel Puig off the team. I wouldn’t put too much stock into this, however.
