    Verlander makes a lot of sense.

    A righty between Urias and Kershaw is nice. Short term and high AAV, exactly what our front office is about.

    in other news…
    • The Marlins have hired Brant Brown as their new hitting coach, as per SportsGrid’s Craig Mish (Twitter link). Brown was one of the Dodgers’ two hitting coaches, and The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal (via Twitter) reported earlier today that Miami was looking at Brown as the newest member of its staff.

    Next up in stupendous Marlin signings: Cody Bellinger, because they sure got him straightened out while on LA over the last 3 seasons.

    Shelby Miller is sloppy dog shit
    what is the point of this? Is this a minor league deal?

    Yeah, I'm with BDK. Dude has been atrocious in the few games he has played over the last, I don't know, 7 years? Convinced my numbers on the mound would be similar to his.

    With that said, I now fully expect him to be a dominant late game reliever and comeback player of the year candidate lol

    Wouldn't be the first successful dumpster dive for this front office.

    Using logic ? Silly boyo...
    No pressing need/ unproven/ injury prone = signing
    Proven/ solid performer/ sturdy, healthy = no interest
    Given successful trash heap reclamation projects, and the remaining core, the fine regular season record ( although going to be much more difficult than in the recent past, for sure ) is possible to maintain to a reasonable degree.
    But champions...
    Nah.
    Like always.
    The Roberts Syndrome... like "Soylent Green is people" !

    What ? You don't want more mediocrity ?
    Fuck is wrong with you?
    He's a perfect LF for us, as CT breaks the all time single season K record and goes on the IL...and cheap!
    (Most important).
    Perfect matching bookend for Shelby Miller, who some are excited about as a sure-fire reclamation miracle...

    Anderson was nails too. 3/39 for him was a bargain, as was the deal Martin got. But we only give out deals like that to shit like Brandon Mehcarthy. I have this nagging fear that Kershaw will be the Dodgers largest contract handed out this off-season

    Anderson jumped at that deal too
    makes me believe he wanted to get far away from davey and his game decisions as quick as possible
    couldn't have just been about the money cause i'm pretty sure every team in the league would match that
    my guess is he wanted to stay on the west coast just under a different philosophy
    2/17.5 for paltrow is pretty steep but he sure looked solid and worth it
    apparently we're never going to pay a decent reliever again
