Dodgers Tried to Acquire Murphy

Daniel Murphy of the Mets is the player the Dodgers tried to trade for at the Winter Meetings, according to a baseball source, and they might make another run at him. Murphy was the unnamed player general manager Ned Colletti referred to when he said he might be able to upgrade the roster, adding yet another multi-position player after earlier signing Jerry Hairston Jr. and Adam Kennedy. But Colletti said the trade he thought might happen instead unraveled when the other club satisfied its need elsewhere without trading the player he wanted. That apparently was a reference to the Mets’ acquisition of Giants outfielder Andres Torres. — Ken Gurnick
