The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking for a No.1 pitcher. Isn't everyone? According to the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers have inquired about Baltimore Orioles left-hander Erik Bedard, but a deal for him probably would take a multi-player package that included Matt Kemp.
"We are not of the mind to give up three or four prospects for one player, I'll tell you that," Dodgers GM Ned Colletti said. To move Kemp, Colletti added, "I'd have to have a conversation where my jaw drops. It's got to be something you can't say no to. I haven't heard anything like that. In fact, teams have stopped asking."
That seemed to imply that Andre Ethier could be dealt for a mid-level pitcher.
