    i remember saying something like he would forever be a part of history how could he be mad?
    i was in my 20s and recall it having a real impact on how i viewed adversity and grace
    listened to him many times since and that's just who is and that's incredibly impressive

    These remind me of penny candy marshmallow ice cream cones when I was a kid. Actually disgusting.
    No one else here probably remembers them, but they're part of the back in the day candy stores big time.

    According to the Athletic Kershaw threw a bullpen session Friday and came out of it feeling good. Treinen goes in OKC tonight. Victor Gonzalez will pitch in OKC soon and Kahnle is nearing a rehab.

    I don't think Kahnle and Gonzalez are useful enough to take spots away from anyone except Kimbrel barring injury, and it's not like they are gonna dump Kimbrel. Imagine Hudson was healthy how sick a playoff bullpen of Hudson, Almonte, Treinen, Ferguson, Vesia, Graterol, and Phillips would've been.

    i guess Moronta is going on the waiver wire so almost certain he's gone for good
    and suddenly Duffy isn't that hurt after all?
    not going to be seeing Baez in a Dodger uni hopefully ever again either since he's been released

    I have to agree with this, although odds are that there will be new injuries between now and October and it's always good to have options.

    The rule sets the max number of pitchers at 13.

    Currently, we have:

    Urias
    Catman
    Anderson
    Heaney
    May
    Pepiot

    Phillips
    Ferguson
    Vesia
    Price
    Martin
    Bickford
    Krumbel

    That's 13.

    We're expecting the following to be added to the roster once they're ready:

    CK
    Trienen
    Bazooka
    Almonte

    That means four pitchers from the current roster will be displaced. Pepiot is one but then what? Krumbel should be another... but will Dipshit Dave see it that way? Hopefully, but only time will tell. After that I'm at a loss. Bickford maybe, although he's been better of late. Kahnle and Victor would definitely be on the outside looking in.

    But like I said, the injury gods may decide it. If not, at least it's a good problem to have.

    Is that true about Duffy? Nevertheless, I don't see a spot for him, barring other injuries.

    Heaney could be odd man out if Kershaw comes back strong. Really doesn't fit a pen profile and struggles to throw strikes at times.

    Based on performance Kimbrel should be deep sixed. We see how the brain trust feels about that.

    Pepiot is an obvious choice. Might come down to who the front office has more faith.......Almonte or Bickford.

    I pick kahnle as my dark horse based on how sick his stuff is and experience
    I think Brusdar could be a bubble guy too depending on his recovery
    And yes the Duffy info is good apparently
    Anyway you look at it the bp having too many arms is a very good problem
