The Star Ledger reports:
WHAT WE'RE HEARING
One of the reasons the Dodgers handed Jeff Kent that $11.5 million extension for 2007 was because they'd like him to move to first base, maybe even a little bit this year, and he didn't want to hit the free-agent market as a first baseman. Now, being set with a contract for next year, he can play wherever he wants.
Even with their outfield logjam apparently settled, the Reds are still shopping Austin Kearns to see if he can bring back a decent starting pitcher in a trade.
