- The Hall of Fame Expansion Era Committee decide its time to honor the managers. Via Barry M. Bloom at MLB.com, "La Russa, Torre, Cox going into Hall of Fame".
- In honor of Joe Torre's selection into the Hall of Fame, Dodgers photographer Jon SooHoo shares a whole bunch of pics featuring Torre. Check them out here.

“This year, I think we’re more into fine tuning,” Kasten said. “That doesn’t mean we won’t be opportunistic if some opportunity presents itself, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if we went through the whole winter without doing a big deal.”
- Mark Saxon also writes, "Dodgers prepared to move on from Juan Uribe". Uribe is apparently testing the Dodger patience when it comes to their negotiations.
“Everybody can go do what they want to go do,” Colletti said. “Hopefully, this week we’ll have more conversations with them and at least get an update on their position. I’m in need of an update on their position.”

- Teenage hurler Takumi Numata of Japan visited Dodger Stadium yesterday. Apparently, he took a tour of the facilities and had a physical. It's possible that he'll soon sign with the Dodgers. He shared a pic of himself at Dodger Stadium that you can see here. In case you forgot, he agreed to sign with the Dodgers earlier in the year, circumventing Japanese Amateur Baseball Association rules, which earned him a lifetime suspension from that league.
- Luke Adams at MLB Trade Rumors has a rundown of all the various rumors and gossip stories surrounding the Dodgers. I have little patience for this kind of stuff, but if you're interested in the hot stove you should go there.
