Dodgers GM Ned Colletti discussed some of his team's offseason plans with Jim Bowden on MLB Network Radio's "Inside Pitch" this afternoon. Bowden passed along some of Colletti's more pertinent comments via Twitter...
- Colletti is "having conversations" with Russell Martin about a new contract. Some free agent catchers have already contacted the Dodgers in case the club wants to make a change in 2011.
- The Dodgers want to add one or two relievers, but Jonathan Broxton still has the closer's job.
- L.A. will increase its payroll for next season.
- Colletti "indirectly made it clear" that the Dodgers aren't pursuing Carl Crawford or Cliff Lee. Left field is only the team's fourth priority behind the bullpen, a fifth starter and settling on a catcher. Colletti said the team's current left field options (Jay Gibbons, Jamie Hoffmann and Xavier Paul) will be given a chance to win the job.
