Stan Kasten: Dodgers Will Be Active At MLB Trade Deadline

When it comes to the trade deadline, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been staying pretty quiet over the past few seasons. But with the new ownership group in place and already making a splash by signing 21-year old Cuban defector Yasiel Puig to a $42 million contract, the Boys in Blue are ready to do more than just observe at this year's trade deadline, according to team President Stan Kasten:

"I promise you we'll explore everything. Look, as candid as we can be, we're the Dodgers. We're supposed to be big. We intend to be big. Will we look at big things? You bet."

When asked about the lack of top-quality players in their farm system, a key to making trade deadline acquisitions, Kasten was not too worried, knowing that he can put up cash where other teams put up a body:

"I wish we were deeper in that regard," Kasten said. "But if the resources involve money, we'll be very flexible."

As the Dodgers look to remain in contention, they could be one of the most active teams at the deadline this summer. Lord (and Stan Kasten) knows they have the money to do so.
