They should really move Haren by Friday and not wait until August. That would just be stupid.

 

Good chance he's gone by Friday.  There's nothing imminent like this one was but there's 3 in the works.  Haren is a pro but he also would prefer to go to a contender now.

Dodgers wanted Haren instead of Latos but balked because we refused to send back money with him.  They don't need money but out of principle, they didn't want to pay him essentially twice.

At this point they really need to trade ozuna for some pitching and sign Upton + 1 or 2 SPs at minimum for 2016

 

Nothing in the works for Ozuna as of right this second, could change obviously.

So it may actually be more than one pick? Lol?

 

The Dodgers were known to be in the market for starting pitching, and this morning, it looks like they’ve added an arm to their rotation.

 

Latos always seemed what likely to land with an analytically-inclined club, given his mediocre ERA but solid FIP/xFIP numbers, and his reputation for being a bit of an issue in the clubhouse, so perhaps we should have anticipated LA as a likely destination. What this means for the team’s reported pursuit of Cole Hamelsremains to be seen, but the Dodgers probably shouldn’t stop trying to acquire another pitcher, given Brett Anderson‘s health track record.

 

Morse being included in the deal doesn’t make sense from a baseball perspective, given that the Dodgers already have a strong bench that includes a bunch of guys who are better than him, but keep in mind that the Dodgers have been aggressively using their financial resources to buy prospects, and I’d guess that this is just more of that trend continuing; rather than giving up talent to get Latos, perhaps the Dodgers convinced the Marlins to take a nothing return if LA took the remainder of Morse’s contract, which has $3 million left this year and $8 million next year.

 

In fact, Wittenmyer’s report makes it sound like the Dodgers are actually the ones potentially getting prospects here, with the “at least one competitive balance pick” comment. If the Dodgers are getting multiple picks back with Latos, then adding Morse’s salary might simply be the cost they were willing to pay to do so. And of course, the Marlins seem to be continually more interested in cost reductions than putting a good team on the field, so this would fit their M.O. perfectly.

You know what, give some of that money to Jose. Lock him down. I couldn't bear to see him on another team. 

 

They tried, Boras told him not to talk long term deal
