The Dodgers are in a lot of trouble right now, and all the trouble is coming from the front office.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that Ned Colletti is going after Cleveland Indians’ starter CC Sabathia and Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson.

Upon first reading it sounds completely absurd. Why would the Dodgers want to rent a starter for the remainder of the season when they have the best ERA in the National League? Better yet, why would they want an overpaid shortstop who is no better than what they have already?

Then again it’s Ned Colletti so that makes this story absolutely plausible.

Remember this is the same general manager that said recently to TJ Simers that the waste of space that is Julio Lugo helped the Dodgers.
