What a difference a few days makes. After seemingly losing ground to the Rangers in the pursuit of Zack Greinke, the top pitching prize on the free agent market, the Dodgers have reasserted themselves in the battle to add a starter.
I'll let the tweets do the talking:

The Dodgers appear to be closing in on signing Zack Greinke. Still some ground to be covered, but they're out in front.— Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) December 9, 2012
Have heard similar report to @thatsportsgirl. Dodgers working on 6/150 for Grienke and its apparently closer than ever.— Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) December 9, 2012
So, even when Dylan Hernandez cautions with this...
The deal between the #Dodgers and Greinke isn't done.— Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) December 9, 2012
He might as well be Marge Simpson. The mob has spoken. Monorail! Monorail! Monorail!
More to come.
