    Welp, the Dodgers abandoned their pursuit of Dozier and flipped Jose De Leon to Tampa for Logan Forsythe straight up.

    I'm going to hate this trade if Forsythe reverts back to a 0.5-ish WAR scrub and we have to go back to Minnesota and the Twins' demands are the same 3 top prospects, except now we don't have JDL to offer.

    Cynicism aside, I don't actually think Friedman will double down on Dozier if Forsythe doesn't pan out. Friedman is a guy who would rather lose on Forsythe for JDL than maybe win on Dozier for JDL and more things.

    A Brandon Phillips-for-Bartolo Colon trade can be a thing that exists in the year 2017.

    I can't help but cringe at reading the bloggers defending trading De Leon, saying he's currently at best 7th on the depth chart. Considering Maeda was the only starter who made it through last season without a DL stint, if the usual suspects Hill, McCarthy, Kazmir, and Wood keep dropping like flies (not to mention Ryu, who's good as dead), De Leon could have easily shot from the outside looking in to the top of the rotation. Oh, and Urias will continue to be on an innings restriction. Yay.

    Then again, De Leon himself was sidelined for a month with arm fatigue.

    And the only reason to watch the World Baseball Classic is out of the tournament.

    From Rosenthal:
    Sources: #Braves close to acquiring 2B Brandon Phillips from #Reds.

    The Braves were motivated after Sean Rodriguez injured his shoulder in a car accident and is expected to miss 3 to 5 months.

    #Marlins 26-year-old LHP Chris Reed voluntarily retired this week. He was a #Dodgers first-round pick from Stanford in 2011.
