Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti joined the show to talk about pulling off the blockbuster trade with the Red Sox.

Colletti confirmed he’s been after Adrian Gonzalez since he was at San Diego. He said at the 2008 or ’09 trade deadline he asked about Gonzalez. But he thought when Gonzalez signed with Boston for that long-term deal he thought he’d lost him.

Colletti said it’s been a lot more fun to be part of the Dodgers with the new ownership group.  “It’s been a freeing type of environment,” Colletti said.

Colletti said now they talk about baseball and they do it in a very smart way. “These are big-picutre people,” Colletti said. He said Magic and the Guggenheim Group aren’t thinking about who’s hitting fourth. They’re concerned with much bigger issues down the road.

Colletti said the new names bring a lot more optimism about getting to the World Series, but you still have to play the games. He said if they stay healthy and play fundamental baseball, he thinks they have a chance.

Colletti said they’re still looking for pitching, but Dan couldn’t get it out of him who it was (although he tried). He did say that talks for Cole Hamels went nowhere.
