The Dodgers have sent cash to the Twins to complete the Aug. 9 deal for pitcher Kevin Correia, according to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA. How much? Not sure, but I’m hoping that rumor of $1 to $200 is true, because … hahaha.

Correia was Ned Colletti‘s last trade acquisition as a GM, which is perfect. Even if Correia was terrible, at least the jokes about who the PTBNL was going to be in this deal were fun while they lasted.
Anyway, Mike will have a great post on the front office coming up in a few hours, but I just had to get this in.
