Colletti: No talks with Yankees

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti just said, literally two minutes ago, that has not had any talks with the Yankees since July.

So those rumors about talks involving Robinson Cano and Matt Kemp are false.

UPDATE, 4:02 p.m.: The Dodgers are focused on retaining Casey Blake to play third base so that they can keep Blake DeWitt at second. If they don’t keep Blake, they would have to move DeWitt to third and then go out and get a second baseman via trade or free agency.

But Colletti said they were prepared to be very aggressive with Blake. Yahoo! Sports is reporting that a deal could be imminent, in fact.

Meanwhile, Colletti said the Dodgers have not made CC Sabathia an offer but that it was a possibility depending on how other issues (Manny Ramirez) broke for them.
