    Seems that way doesn't it? Hopefully they figure it out soon. As weak as the division is, I don't really like how our rotations stacks up to the Diamondbacks and Giants. We need a difference maker like Manny in the lineup.

    Here is something interesting from Jayson Stark

    Dunn Deal Dept.: OK, here's another hang-up if Manny decides to stall until spring training. An official of one team that has had contact with Adam Dunn's agents says Dunn is "definitely" waiting to see what happens with Ramirez because the Dodgers are his preferred destination.

    That's not a good development for the Nationals, who have made no secret of their interest in Dunn. But it's becoming increasingly clear they aren't his No. 1 choice.

    "If he wanted to be in Washington, he'd already be there," the same official said.

    The Nationals remain Dunn's most aggressive suitor. And the Orioles are still believed to have some back-burner interest. But the Braves have backed off after concluding Dunn didn't fit with the other pieces of their lineup. So with no other contenders in the hunt, the big question is:

    Dunn may want to be a Dodger, but how interested are the Dodgers in him? On that front, the Dodgers have been hard to read.

    Indications are they've made regular contact with Dunn's agent, Greg Genske. But they've never gone beyond an expression of interest that would depend on how other pieces (i.e., the Manny piece) fit together.

    For now, the Dodgers appear focused on pitching. But at some point, after they finish off the seemingly inevitable signing of Randy Wolf, it's very possible they'll make one final run at Ramirez and then turn their attention to seeing whether they can get Dunn signed to a short-term deal.

    How about Russ just plays about 30 less games? Maybe takes a few days off in April, then May. wash, rinse, repeat.

    And before Miguel was traded as well.

    Yes, but you just don't call your GM out like that (even implicitly, and even if he is a moron). Certainly doesn't help with negotiating leverage.

    With guys like Dunn and Abreu sitting around unsigned, this is the right move for the Dodgers. If Manny doesn't want their $25 million for next year, they can probably get Dunn for 2 years at the same total cost.

    It's believed that Ramirez and Boras were given a 48-hour deadline to accept the offer.
