    I wonder if there is some sour grapes from the Nats for the Turner/Scherzer deal. Gray has been throwing batting practice and Ruiz has shown 0 power. Stupid to operate that way but the Nationals have done everything you can possibly do wrong after 2019.

    Would you trade a package like that for Ohtani?

    Could be some sour grapes, but it's also too early for them to fully assess Gray and Ruiz. Plus not all prospects work out, it's always a gamble. I'm sure some of what they got from SD will flop too.

    But even given that... I still wouldn't give up that package for Ohtani. Too much risk of injury in one player, and he hasn't been the best specimen of health to begin with.

    For sure. Every game that Gallo starts over CT or Trayce, or Lux (with CT at 2B), is a travesty IMO.

    truly mind boggling why we even traded for him

    I don't care that Correa is wearing a new uniform. Still can't stand the guy. Wouldn't mind if Urias puts a fastball square between his shoulder blades today.

    And I'm still reading blurbs like "If Trea leaves, we can try to sign Dansby or Correa." First of all, RE-SIGN TREA! Secondly, under NO circumstances should Correa ever wear Dodger Blue. Period. Third of all, RE-SIGN TREA!

    Maybe the astounding reveals of the Webb telescope will answer this amongst the other cosmic enlightenments.

    How about Victor?

    When we hear about injured pitchers coming back, it's always May, Treinen, Graterol, Kahnle, and sometimes Duffy. But nobody ever talks about Gonzalez. He had a great 2020, an average 2021, and was looking really good in spring. He could help out this bullpen too. Last I heard Roberts said it's possible he's back this month.

    I just read that the Dodgers have won 122 of 162 games with TT in the lineup. That's absolutely ridiculous! #paytrea

    Quick update on our top two prospects:

    Yesterday, Cartaya had three hits, including his 18th HR, in High-A. He's now slashing .273/.408/.538.

    On Tuesday, Miller struck out 11 over six innings in Double-A, the second time he's done this in less than two weeks. He gave up 3 runs. ERA and WHIP are pretty high at 4.84 and 1.23, but opponents are hitting only .228, and he's 5th in the league in strikeouts.

    Report that LA was deeply interested in Pablo Lopez from Miami as a SP., but obviously, didn't happen.
    Would've been a great move...may be renewed in the off season
    NYY tried, boo.
