    Love the reference but if a Texas team offers him something I think he'll take a cut even though I voted, opts out and re-signs.

    Kershaw signs with the Cardinals and shuts us down in the NLDS

    It would match our luck in the post season.

    If they use the savings to go get Harper and another star, I hope we walks.
    If the F.O. is going to sit on their hands and do nothing, I hope he doesn't opt out and we can have him for nostalgia.
    As long as he is no longer treated like a superstar and doesn't prevent us from making other movies, I'm good.

    If the FO doesn’t spend this off season, that whole getting underneath the luxury tax was a scam.

    We Dodger fans can be gluttons for punishment sometimes.

    I'm a Doc guy so crucify away. I hope he stays because 2 straight appearances in a WS is as rare as it gets so fuck y'all if you disagree. :hide:

    I sense they are going for quantity rather than the 1 HUGE FA.

    Who knows, maybe Kershaw will thrive and have a rebirth, not being "The guy" any more? I'd rather it be here, but at a reasonable number.

    lowkey off-season trade target: Whit Merrifield of the Royals. He's basically exactly what the Dodgers need. Build a package around Maeda.

    Why would they trade him? He is Mr Royal right now.

    Sad to say personally, but I hope he moves on. His problems (and he had some very good starts) in the postseason overshadow how effective (even with diminished velocity) he was in the regular season.

    Knowing his work ethic, he'll work his ass off to adjust to his diminished physical skills and remain an effective pitcher. But it's impossible to to justify paying a pitcher trying to reinvent himself the kind of money he's owed at the end of his current contract.

    Hope he kills it wherever he lands in 2019.

    Just hope the FO has a plan in place to replace him. Not counting on Urias to be that guy for another year. Have to know he'll be on a strict innings count in 2019.

    When you're force fed failure as the ultimate result for over 30 years, it's difficult not to be a glutton for punishment...there is no alternative.
