Dodgers not interested in Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez after all?

Over the weekend Peter Gammons of MLB Network reported that the Dodgers “will go five years and close to $50 million” to sign Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, citing as his source an unnamed general manager who believed the Cuban right-hander would sign with Los Angeles.

However, now Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that “the Dodgers are not pursuing” Gonzalez, specifically addressing the $50 million speculation by saying that his source “insists the Dodgers are not part of the process.”

Gammons is one of the most respected baseball reporters of all time and Gurnick covers the Dodgers for their official team website, and yet within a 48-hour span one reported the Dodgers are offering $50 million and the other reported the Dodgers aren’t even interested. Baseball rumors, man.

    Maybe the Dodgers just aren’t interested in taking their bid any higher until or unless they’re convinced someone else actually beat them.

    It’s gotta be a tactic. How could they not be interested? They have gobs of money, are publicly sworn to rebuild internationally, and Capuano isn’t reliable.

    They could have their sights on someone else too. I agree though. Capi is either dead on or gets wholloped
