Bochy shrugs off rumors of big Dodgers trade

SAN FRANCISCO -- The rumors of a blockbuster trade between the Dodgers and Red Sox didn't prompt much concern from Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

The Dodgers were reported to be in discussions Friday to acquire Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto from the Red Sox.

"We're hearing the news," Bochy said. "It's like I always say: You can't be worried about things you can't control. We can control what we do here, which is to go out and win every game. I don't know what's going to happen there, and it really shouldn't matter to us."

Bochy added that the rumored deal could boost confidence in the Giants clubhouse, knowing that the second-place Dodgers are aggressively adding players in their pursuit of the Giants.

"We have the talent here; it's doesn't matter what the other clubs do," Bochy said.
