    We're a bunch of loser assholes, who, ultimately, can't take care of business when it's time to.
    This is just another non- move that proves it.
    Let's go get a Hudson, or a Duffy, or a Nelson or some other inevitable IL dweller instead of a proven commodity.

    Tyler Anderson mentioned during his Zoom conference call that he had other three year offers on the table but teams wanted to wait deeper into off-season and he wanted to sign early -- mentioned Dodgers had talked to him about multiple years but didn't get far into discussions.

    Thought I had escaped Kirsten until the spring.

    Went to the Rams' game Sunday and there she was with another airhead droning on during the pre-game and timeouts.

    again, who created those expectations you fucken child?!!!
    • “It’s been a process,” Roberts said, “As far as managing expectations, managing, as you say, the bullseye. And it’s more just turning our focus internally. We have a slogan about, ‘Just win a baseball game,’ ‘Just win today.’ So regardless of expectations, a bad game, a good game, I think that when you focus on each other and trying to play good baseball, it sort of minimizes it and drowns out those expectations. But when you wear that Dodger uniform, you’re either going to love us or hate us. And I’ve already kind of reconciled that.”

    While I'm told the #Dodgers have not made a final decision on Cody Bellinger's future, the chances are better than 50/50 that he will be removed from the roster via trade or non-tender by 8 pm ET today.

    Yeah, have to imagine he will be non-tendered and likely not brought back on a cheaper contract either.

    If coaching hasn't figured out how to get him back on track after 2 years, doesn't seem like there's any reason to bring him back in hoping he will return to MVP form. Dude can still play defense though.

    No issues with Cody and wish him well. If another team is able to help him get back on track, good for them and him.

    Dodgers to non-tender Bellinger
    by Anthony Franco | MLB Trade Rumors — 2 minutes ago

    The Dodgers will not tender a contract to Cody Bellinger, reports Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic (Twitter link). Once finalized by the team, the 2019 NL MVP will be a free agent. MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz had projected Bellinger for an $18.1MM salary if tendered.

    It’s not a surprising decision at this point, but it’s one nobody would’ve foreseen when he was collecting his MVP trophy three years ago. He blasted 47 home runs that season and posted an overall .305/.406/.629 line across 661 plate appearances. The left-handed hitter looked to have cemented himself as one of the sport’s preeminent sluggers, and he carried a career .278/.368/.559 mark in over 1800 plate appearances heading into 2020. At age 24, Bellinger seemed a budding superstar.

    Unfortunately, things have gone south over the past few seasons. He stumbled a bit during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, putting up a .239/.333/.455 line in 56 games. That was still above-average production but a notable step back from the numbers of his first few seasons. A putrid .245 batting average on balls in play seemed to be a major cause of that, and one could certainly point to the anomalous circumstances that year in anticipating a bounceback.

    That’s not how things have played out, seemingly in part due to an ill-advised celebration that postseason. Bellinger dislocated his right shoulder celebrating a crucial home run in Game 7 of the 2020 NLCS. While he played out the postseason, he underwent surgery in mid-November. Bellinger was healthy enough to open the 2021 campaign on the roster, but he battled a series of unrelated leg and rib issues. In between, his slash line plummeted to a meager .165/.240/.302 in 95 games.

    More to come.
