Beinfest to the Dodgers?

Rumors, Oh we've got rumors.  The is reporting that Larry Beinfest is trying to land the Los Angeles Dodgers GM position.

The man on the other end of the most controversial trade Paul DePodesta made in his two seasons as general manager of the Dodgers might be the man who ultimately replaces DePodesta.

Two sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity said Florida GM Larry Beinfest, who on July 30, 2004, sent Brad Penny, Hee-Seop Choi and a minor leaguer to the Dodgers for Paul Lo Duca, Guillermo Mota and Juan Encarnacion, has a strong interest in the job. A former All- City shortstop at Chatsworth High School, Beinfest still spends much of his offseasons in Southern California.

The only question now is whether the Dodgers are interested in him.


At first glance, though, Beinfest would seem tailor-made to what Dodgers officials need.

Great, stinkin' great.  The team is flying blind on the payroll with over half of the 25 man roster being free agents and now the GM is trying to jump ship right before the crucial part of the off-season, potentially leaving the club in a massive lurch.

Man, this would suck.

Welcome to Florida Marlins baseball.  It's not for the faint of heart.
