Dodgers Still In Pursuit Of Guerrero. Don't Count 'Em Out

guerreroSeveral teams -- believed to include the Red Sox, Giants, Rangers, Reds and Dodgers -- are said to be in the running for free agent Cuban infielder Alex Guerrero.

The Dodgers were suggested to be out of the running in one report after a deal reported by MLB.com for $32 million for five years fell through after it was learned that the person or people representing Guerrero was not certified by the players union.

The Dodgers, reported to have had a verbal agreement with a representative of Guerrero a couple weeks ago, were characterized recently as being on the outskirts of the recent discussions but considering their history of snapping up international talent, they can never be counted out.

The Dodgers scored big with two international signings last winter, lefthander Hyun-Jin Ryu from South Korea and Yasiel Puig from Cuba, two Rookie of the Year candidates.
