RT @magelb: Domonic Brown has been scratched from triple-A Lehigh Valley's lineup for noon game. He'll be coming up.


Look like the deal is all but done. Brown is an outfielder for the Phillies.

Masterson from CLE is available apparently, hopefully the Dodgers can get him if Dempster is a no go

Dodgers complete deal for Victorino. Lindblom and Ethan Martin go to Philly. I hate losing Ethan Martin, he was going to be a good one. Victorino upgrades the offense even more. Solid move.



Some interesting tweets by Ken Rosenthal, sounds like the Dodgers aren't done just yet, even if they get Dempster.

@Ken_Rosenthal
Sources: #Dodgers have worked on two "massive" deals over last several days, both of which are now less likely. Not sure what deals were…


@Ken_Rosenthal
#Dodgers remain focused on Dempster and want him even if they add another pitcher. Also looking at hitters, too. One rival official says...


@Ken_Rosenthal
"They (#Dodgers) were really hunkered down last night. I was told they were told, 'Damn the money. Make the club better.'"

Good. Add Dempster and if possible, a bat at 1B and we'll be favorites to win it all.

Jim Bowden of ESPN.com reports that the Dodgers are “getting” Dempster and the two sides merely have the “dotting of i’s and crossing of t’s” to complete the deal.

Sources tell me and @jonmorosi that #Yankees have indeed contacted #Cubs about acquiring Dempster. Teams not talking seriously - yet.

There's a lot of talk about other teams getting in the mix for Dempster but it could be a leverage ploy by the Cubs. They really want Webster, but I can't see the Dodgers giving him up for a rental.

@Ken_Rosenthal
#Dodgers' position is that they have made deals without moving any of top 7-8 prospects. Will not move any of them for rental like Dempster.


That's how it should be

Looks like Dodgers couldn't get that other starter.

Not disappointed though. After the past few years, getting Ramirez, League and Victorino is a good deadline. We still have Lily and De La Rosa coming back from injuries so we'll add more depth there.

Looking forward to this ownership's desire to make a winning ball club, the Dodgers are back in play as a major player for years to come. Not getting a SP is not because of lack of effort, they made moves and kept top prospects for the future (and future moves).

Yeah, the Dodgers refused to sell the farm to get a trade done. Especially for a rental. Oh well.

If McCourt was here we'd have Dempster, except we'd given up Lee AND Webster lol

Losing him to the Rangers is not bad. It wont hurt us

I guess we'll have Fife and Lilly at the back end of the rotation. I'll take it

Damn im pissed Giants got Pence. I hope they gave up the farm for him
