The Winter Meetings are coming to a close and the Dodgers appear to be heading toward a fairly disappointing week given the hullabaloo surrounding the organization when the week started.
Andrew Friedman did imply Wednesday evening that he and his team might not be done, though.
This, via Bill Plunkett of the Orange Country Register:
#Dodgers Friedman on trade talks: “We have a few active convrsations that r kind of interesting so we’re investing time to run out the play”

In other words, there are still deals to make in the Winter Meetings’ midnight hour.
Well, yeah. I’d certainly hope so.
The odds are definitely against the Dodgers to make a move in the final day of the meetings as agents, players and other front offices depart, having made their deals.
The offseason by no means ends tomorrow, as the meetings are typically to plant the seeds on as many conversations as teams possibly can and develop the negotiations from there.
It is worth mentioning, though, that a disappointing Winter Meetings week is by no means ultimately damning for the rest of the season. More than anything else, it means they’ll have to be that much busier through the end of the offseason.
