    I guess I don’t buy the narrative that Friedman didn’t want to spend $330 million on Cole, seems more likely ownership wouldn’t ok it.

    So other GM's are either luckier or cheaters or blessed by God.
    But we are smarter better hotter and even holier than the rest of em.
    We are so great.
    It's a great consolation.

    A Dodger wants a free ride.
    So he hangs around the action.
    Looking for spare change.
    Because he still has hope.
    He may even dodge the ticket man.
    But eventually the train will hit him.
    And then he dusts himself off and takes his base.
    He earned his way.
    His way.

    Look, I’m not shocked at all. There is nothing this FO has done to remotely suggest they would open the pocket book to sign an impact FA. Nothing. So fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me 4-5 times, I’m a moron.

    I hear they picked up Triene (sp) on a 1 year deal. So it looks like for now, our season depends on Seager, Kelley, CK and Jansen having career years.

    I haven't been able to bring myself on here since the last playoff loss, and even now I can't read people's posts or articles on the Dodgers as it stirs up too many negative thoughts. But I do see the headlines, and I'll tell you this. There is a silver lining if the Dodgers big signing this winter is Bumgarner... and that is that I'll have a lot more free time on my hands during baseball season for the remainder of his contract. For as much as I feel the Lebron-led Lakers are unrelatable to me (even despite their season-to-date success), a Bumshithead Dodger team would be far, far more difficult for me to get behind.

    Great news! The Dodgers made more money than any other team last year with a revenue of $95M!!! Let's hear it for our owners that have found a way to keep raking in that cash flow!

    Dodgers are the strongest pursuer of Betances and are also working on a Hader deal potentially. Don't really give a fuck one way or another cause they are gonna need a lot more than those two to turn this team in a WS favorite.

    Dodgers Digest would lose their minds if the Dodgers added Hader and Bumgarner.
    Do it
    We aint winning anyways.

    Only way I get interested in the 2020 Dodgers:

    • Roberts is implicated in the Astros scandal as a traitor and is banned from MLB.
    • Dodgers get Hader (to get better, but also piss off Nosler)
    • Dodgers get one of Bryant, Arenado, Lindor or Donaldson
    • Dodgers FO tricks me into hoping for a real SP at the deadline
    • Dodgers sign Bumgarner just to piss off Giant fans and Dustin Nosler even more

    Yankees also have interest in Hader which means we are eliminated from getting him since the Yankees put an emphasis on winning and we do not

    I didn’t think about the sign Bumgarner to piss off giants fans part of it. That actually sounds nice

    Rather piss Giants' fans off by winning a WS or 3.
    Signing Bumgarner during his decline, so the SFG fans can point and laugh when he sucks - doesn't sound that nice
