The Winter Meetings will close Thursday without the Dodgers concluding a significant deal, general manager Ned Colletti predicted Wednesday night.
The Dodgers have solved the awful problem of what to do with Matt Kemp. Turns out, based on what they told agent Dave Stewart on Wednesday, they're going to keep him. This is bad, bad news ... at least to the other teams in the National League West, if not the NL as a whole.
The Dodgers told Matt Kemp's agent Wednesday that they have no plans to trade the outfielder.
Jerry Hairston announced his retirement Wednesday, following a 16-year Major League career that included a World Series title with the Yankees in 2009. The 37-year-old has a deal to serve as a pregame and postgame analyst for the Dodgers' television broadcasts, according to Bruce Levine of Chicago's WSCR-AM radio and 670thescore.com.
