I started this offseason thinking that the word “aggressive” was being used an awful lot in connection with hot stove rumors, and that maybe it would be this year’s “kick the tires.” But it appears Buster Olney is a one-man force trying to get “serious pursuit” going. He had it this morning with Andrew Miller and the Yankees. This is not a repeat:
The Dodgers, like the Yankees, are in serious pursuit of left-hander Andrew Miller. He would greatly improve LAD bullpen.

Same analysis that applied to the Yankees applies here: Miller would be a great add, forming a 1-2 punch with Kenley Jansen.
Anyway, I like “serious pursuit.” It’s streets ahead of other all-purpose hot stove descriptors.
