Will Trumbo walk across the street?

I am wondering if Trumbo will walk across the street to see his Alma Mater play in the CIF championship game at Angel Stadium.

As always, consider the source...but this sounds right. Dodgers having insane money and guys like Hamels, Cain and Kuroda going off the market just made this too crazy of a bidding war to try and win. Sucks to see him go, but I imagine his final contract will confirm that it was not conducive to maintaining a healthy amount of payroll flexibility going forward.

Two stories on a collision course

The headline above is the first. It may be behind a paywall for some of you, but here is the gist: "Now comes word the Dodgers are talking to Fox about retaining its media rights package for at least $6 billion, maybe $7 billion." To put it in perspective, that would be twice the contract the Angels signed with Fox Sports West. It works out to over $1M per game for the Dodgers. And here is the other: http://www.mlbdailydish.com/2012/11/25/3690094/zack-greinke-rumors-right-hander-expects-to-net-landmark-contract So Team Greinke is predicting a contract which will be less than only Sabathia's, and the Dodgers are on the cusp of a television contract second only to the revenue the Yankees derive from YES. I think Dipoto is already on Plan B.

Angels interested in Madson

Interesting, might become too expensive but I would love this move

Quick Jerry! Offer Vernon to Boston!

The Red Sox need an outfielder and Fenway might be a park that would revitalize Vernon's career. We need some relievers and BOS seems to have a fair amount of cheap, young arms. So how about we eat most of Vernon's contract and Boston gives us Craig Breslow? Looks like he'll be cheap for another season, then becomes a FA.
