    If the Dodgers pathetic offseason moves are all supposed to be justified by a future acquisition of Ohtani, they'd better get busy. Correa signing with the Twins means that the Mets will be big pursuers of Ohtani. Also, I can't see the Angels keeping him all season just to see him walk as a FA - they're going to trade him and whoever gets him will extend.

    I say this every time it looks like he's getting signed: I'm just glad he's off the table with no chance Dodgers sign him. I'm really down on our team at the moment, but it would be so much worse if we were heading into the season with that cocksucker wearing Dodger Blue.

    Machado is 100% going to the Mets next offseason if the Padres don't find a way to lock him up

    talk about not aging well lol

    SlyTM@ThinkBlue47
    Dodgers really bout to get Bauer back & get Correa on the cheap. The Soft Dodger fans are gonna jump ship to the Padres. Hopefully that Chapman rumor wasn’t bullshit.

    That was Kershaw's no-hitter.

    Like Rojas as an insurance policy if Lux falls flat on his face at SS.

    Solid pickup.

    Yes, solid. If he gets enough playing time, he'd max out in overall WAR somewhere between 2 and 3. A far cry from Trea, but we knew we weren't going to replace that bat. Defensively, he'd be an upgrade over last year, but in a perfect scenario Lux comes out swinging and owns the position all year.

    Amaya was our #15 prospect on FanGraphs, was not in our top ten on Baseball America's list, and not top-25 on Baseball Prospectus. We have three other shortstops in the system who seem to be ranked higher, although they're all in Low-A or High-A while Amaya is in AAA, so who knows. I guess for an insurance policy, it was worth giving up Amaya, but I'm still hoping we mostly see Lux because his bat potentially plays much bigger.

    The Dodgers have agreed to terms with SS Joendry Vargas and OF Arnaldo Lantigua, Nos. 3 and 23 on the Top 50 International Prospects list, per @JesseSanchezMLB. Details: https://atmlb.com/3kji771

    muncy, on jt leaving…
    • “That one hurt. All of those guys leaving hurt, obviously. It’s just, you spend every day with these guys and you develop such relationships with them. And even Trea [Turner], only having been with us for the year and a half that he was, those guys leaving, it really hurts. But with JT, man, that’s a really tough one. That’s his clubhouse. That was his clubhouse. He controlled everything. There’s so many little things that JT brought to the team that no one even knows about. Just little things as simple as, every year we have a group chat with all the players, JT is the guy that sets all that up. He’s the one that’s figuring out who’s getting called up, who’s getting sent down, he’s changing out the numbers. And that’s not to say that not anybody can do that, but he took it upon himself to do that, because that’s the kind of the leader he was. Every time we flew into a city, JT is setting up a team dinner at a restaurant for everybody … and I know that JT always focused on that because if the whole team is going out and doing that, we’re creating such a brotherhood that it’s easier to play for each other when you just have those kind of relationships. And that was something that JT brought to the team, and there’s countless other things that he would do that people don’t know about. And so not having him, that one’s really going to hurt.”
