As if we haven’t been busy enough this “offseason”, the Los Angeles Dodgers have some fairly important questions to answer this afternoon. All qualifying offers must be extended by 2:00 PM Friday.

For the Dodgers, this means they have to make decisions on Brett Anderson, Howie Kendrick, Jimmy Rollins and, you guessed it, Zack Greinke. A qualifying offer extended means either the player accepts the deal or, if rejected, whichever team signs said player away must send a compensatory draft pick.


 

ICYMI: Dodgers “Favorites” To Keep Greinke


 

Greinke will absolutely be extended an offer, and he’ll absolutely decline it.

Kendrick and Anderson could get one and Anderson seems more likely to accept his. Again, though, the important factor to take into account is the draft pick that would come back to the Dodgers from another team.

Rollins, in all likelihood, probably won’t receive a qualifying offer.

Andrew Friedman has been strident in one trend as team president: his valuing draft picks wherever he can get them. It’s because of this I could see the Dodgers extending qualifying offers to players previous administrations might not have.

Once offers are extended, players have one week to make a decision one way or the other.

First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
