Dodgers going for Greinke and Sanchez

Many expect the Dodgers to keep on spending this offseason, beginning with Zack Greinke. The Dodgers, sources say, also could add arguably the second-most attractive free-agent pitcher, righty Anibal Sanchez, in a dual investment that could approach $250 million. At the moment, the Dodgers also are negotiating with another starter, Korean lefty Ryu Hyun-Jin. The deadline to sign him is Sunday. If the Dodgers fail to complete a deal, they will not pay a $25.7 million posting fee to his Korean team. That would be $25.7 million more for the Dodgers to redirect to free-agent starters, or perhaps an expensive pitcher whom they might acquire in a trade. The Dodgers, sources say, have talked to [the Mets] about NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey. (Fox Sports) Comment

Suns offer fans money-back guarantee

Credit the Suns for taking a unique approach to trying to fill the building in Phoenix. [The team is] confident that, no matter what the outcome is Thursday night when the Suns play host to the Dallas Mavericks, you will leave US Airways Center satisfied. It's guaranteed, or your money back. And evidently, a lot of you are willing to give them the chance. Suns President Jason Rowley said that only about 1,000 tickets remained for Thursday night's game as of Wednesday morning. The team could even sell out the 18,422-seat arena for the first time this season. ... In fact, the response has been so good that Rowley isn't ruling out doing it in future. "It's something that hasn't been done before," Rowley said. "It's out of the box." (The Arizona Republic) Comment

More to Harvin's IR stint?

This much is clear: Percy Harvin's 2012 is over. Yet, as is often the case with Harvin, Wednesday's definitive news contained an odd layer of mystery, too. In the morning, after announcing Harvin would miss the day's practice, [Leslie Frazier] was asked directly if there were additional issues beyond the ankle that had contributed to the receiver's continued absence. The Vikings coach looked up, then down. He hesitated for a second and carefully formed his response. "You know, it's ..." Frazier said. "I know that he wants to win like we do. And I'm sure he's going to do everything he can to do what he has to do to help our football team. "We'll see where it goes." It wasn't exactly a straightforward answer to a head-on inquiry.
