    If there is a joke there I'm not getting it.

    Are you saying that the all star star w no longer earns world series home field?

    As #Dodgers and Indians discuss Francisco Lindor, trade talks reportedly have also included Mike Clevinger


    “The Dodgers have a lot of prospect capital and not just guys, but guys that can make a difference. Gavin Lux, from what I’ve been told, is a guy that the Indians would want in any deal for Francisco Lindor.

    And from what I’ve found out the last 24 hours, there have been different versions of the trade discussed that would involve Lindor and not Corey Kluber, but Lindor and possibly Mike Clevinger.” - Vassegh

    I’m in a “wait till I get disappointed” mode.

    Clevinger would be an interesting twist and a solid addition to that deal, but why in the world would they want to move him unless they are going more for a rebuild? I also had no idea that Clevinger threw as hard as he does as I thought he was a soft tosser, but it looks like his Velo is up 3 ticks since 2017, so that may have been when I last saw him. Seems like this would be a deal where A LOT would be going the other way. Which at this point, whatever.

    Now that is interesting. I'm sure lots of stuff has been discussed but this doesn't seem logical. He's 28, very good and under cheap control for three seasons.

    I'd be all over it

    No, no joke. It has been the best record overall the last couple of years.

    Trade away MVP caliber Lindor and you are pretty much rebuilding. At least that's what the fans would expect no matter what the club says. Building around a new, younger centerpiece.

    Been saying for a couple years now, how these teams match up for a big deal. Way before Lindor were being discussed. Puig was always a fit there with Tito in charge and I'll be damned if he didn't end up there. I'm sure May would be outta here and maybe one of Joc or Verdugo. Or maybe they get CLE to take Pollock in order to get Ruiz thrown in. Way too many pieces fit to not get it done

    Would guess this would be a part of a HUGE deal cause the prospect haul would need to be massive, imo. Clevinger was nothing short of elite for the last 3 months of the season after coming back from injury. He had a 16 game stretch of sub 2 ERA once he settled in. I would think the only way to get Lindor and Clevinger would be in something bigger where Joc and/or Seager are a part of it. So 3-4 team deal that could be hard to pull off.

    Wow. I swear, every year there are so many tweaks and changes in the MLB that I have or had no idea were ever made.

    Lux would be gone. Same for May, Joc and probably Ruiz. I think I'd be down with that.

    • Dodgers are interested in Japanese leftfielder Yoshitomo Tsutsugo. He is supposedly pretty mediocre in the field, but all reports are that he can really hit. He has been working out with Nolan Arenado this offseason and has been trying to improve his versatility. He is not looking for the most money, but prefers somewhere he will play most often. The Dodgers are said to be one of the few NL teams to be interested in him, but this FO has been following him closely for the last 3 or 4 years according to reports. Daniel Brim said there are a lot of similarities in his game to Joc Pederson's when it comes to how he looks in the field. He just turned 28 a couple weeks ago, so he still has a couple prime years remaining. He has a career .907 OPS to go with 205 HR's over 10 JPCL seasons.
    • The Dodgers also did not lose anyone to the Rule 5 draft. On the plate for next year is a hefty list where I counted at least 8 potential big leaguers, plus the 3 players from this year that also could push themselves into big league roles by then. This is one reason to expect a decent amount of trades over the next season as some of the guys on the list have some helium over the last year+.
    • Rosenthal is saying that Bumgarner is looking to get paid, but he is also going to likely prioritize winning too. This may be why the Dodgers are said to be in the mix for him. Still, would rather bring back Ryu over MadBum. Though if they do move May, they are probably going to need to add at least two vets to the rotation.
    • 3B Josh Donaldson has teams that are willing to go 4 years for him. This supposedly has knocked out some of the original contenders for his services. The Dodgers are rumored to be in on him, but at this point, I find that unlikely.

    If he’s looking to play a lot, we aren’t the team for him.

    If the team moves Pollock and Pederson that narrative will change, but yes I agree that unless this happens, he is not much of an option.

    I think Syndergaard could be a terrific buy low option. His slider, and overall performance, likely suffered due to the changes on the new baseball. I believe the league will want to restore the baseballs physical characteristics to pre-2019 levels. If so, I fully expect Thor to regain the effectiveness he had prior to this season.

    Even then we will still have Cody, Verdugo, Taylor, kike, and if they get Lindor or Donaldson or whoever without moving lux or Seager, then Lux getting a look in the OF.

    This had to have been the least active trade market at the winter meetings I’ve ever seen

    I feel you.
    The Lakers don't feel right.
    Did we get too used to the struggle and it's now just a tad too easy?
    Like we are jumping on a bandwagon yet it's our own team. Yet the kids we rooted for are sprouting forests in other lands.
    So there is a lot of sweet n sour for sure.

    But the Dodgers feel different.
    They are signing different type of cats.
    And some are dogs.
