It's that time again. As soon as the last out of the World Series was made, the proverbial burners were turned on under the proverbial hot stove. And with a plethora of relief pitchers and some big names like Robinson Cano testing the market, it should be a doozy of an offseason.
The Dodgers have already been linked to two huge names in starting pitching, and could look to upgrade the bullpen or move one of their four starting outfielders. But with a hungry front office, piles of money, and a deep enough farm system to make a move, the Dodgers could be wheeling and dealing like crazy this winter.
Specifically, if the Dodgers can't bring Juan Uribe back at the hot corner, they will need a third baseman to fill the void until Corey Seager is ready for the big leagues, and could use a little pop off the bench.
Before any of that, there's the business of tending to the 12 free agents who donned a Dodgers jersey in 2013. Most will walk, but the Dodgers might want to look at bringing back a couple key components, like utility infielder Nick Punto.
Inside, we'll discuss 10 realistic moves the Dodgers can make in the offseason to strengthen a team already favored to win the 2014 World Series.
