In an article today, MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick suggests that the Dodgers may be reluctant to trade for Scott Rolen due to his history with former Phillies manager Larry Bowa. Bowa is the Dodgers’ new third base coach. Perhaps not news to many of you, but it’s an angle that hadn’t occurred to me. Those two probably can’t work together.
Gurnick says that with Andruw Jones in tow, the Dodgers are inclined to use internal options at third base anyway.
