    As much as I would have liked to keep Scherzer, at $43M per year for 3 years, that’s just crazy. There is a reason the Nats traded him away, and his dead arm was not a good sign even though I do put a lot of the blame on Roberts for that.

    The thing is, if Bauer wasn’t such a moron, we would not have needed Scherzer in my opinion.

    In terms of where the Dodgers go from here, I think the emphasis has to be on retaining either Seager or Trea Turner, and finding a replacement for CT (don’t think the Dodgers want to pay him what he wants and maybe able to get elsewhere).

    We may need to explore a replacement for JT as well. Getting long in the tooth.

    As for SP, if Dustin May’s recovery looks good, I think we’re not in too bad a situation. Buehler will hopefully learn how to pitch better in pressure situations with this past experience, perhaps Roberts won’t do stupid things and abuse Urias, and Gonsolin will find a rhythm.

    I can’t think of another SP on the market worth reaching for.

    I felt it. It's pretty much pactum factum, and the money is ridiculous.
    Looks like all the good ones just ain't on that Davey bandwagon...
    There's always Joc again.
    I thought I saw him in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade...maybe not.
    I must say, I wish everyone who signs with other teams, like Max and Corey, all the best of luck...
    And hope they flat out suck.
    Thank you.

    Either Friedman needs to go or Guggenheim needs to sell. Who the fuck says either will be here in 9 years. Beltre 2.0

    The Seager one hurts a lot more than Scherzer. Dodger since day 1....WS MVP or fake WS MVP, whichever you prefer to call it.

    My excitement level for the 2022 season couldn't be any lower

    ....yay...

    @JeffPassan
    Right-handed reliever Daniel Hudson and the Los Angeles Dodgers are nearing an agreement on a one-year deal, sources tell ESPN. When completed, it’s expected to be for around $7 million.

    I don’t even give a shit about Taylor or Knebel or any other FA besides Kenley and Kershaw. I’ve never been more pissed off

    Being totally genuine and sincere here, but are you really this surprised? I felt like the writing was pretty much on the wall when we got Trea in the trade with the Nats. Even the poll vote here, most people didn't expect us to resign Seager.
