    better yet…
    when asked about it friedman said “he can’t talk publicly about free agents”, while gomes said “he was surprised by roberts’ candidness about ohtani and their private meeting, and steadfastly refused to talk about their pursuit.”

    bleacher report

    Well I'm fairly certain you know the difference between honesty and negotiation lol.
    That was full moron
    I can tell when my sushi chef wants to talk and when I should shut up by just noticing a twitch
    Japanese are extremely private and shohei had clearly stated he didn't want the things playing out in public
    Hard to imagine ANYONE not understanding but that's our davey through and through
    I say no way he signs w the Dodgers after that especially w Friedman expressing surprise

    ...as I'm fairly certain you know the difference between long-lasting benefits and misguided resentment over a third party's loyalty and generosity? LOL

    Davey works for Magic, whose loose lips blew both the Leonard free agency and the George trade, that one generating a 500K fine on national TV.

    Fuck Ohtani, too.
    What is he, Madam Butterfly ? A geisha in training. ? This diva and that drooling village idiot Roberts deserve each other.
    This whole thing makes me sick. It's fucking baseball, for crissakes.
    Bunch of fucking finooks...all of them.
    What's next ? No one can look directly at him ?

    • Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that he hadn’t met with free agent pitching sensation Yoshinobu Yamamoto.
    three questions…
    when he says he, does he mean the dodgers or just him?
    why is he answering questions?
    why is his dumb ass even at the winter meetings?

    Regarding Roberts' intellect & savvy... to quote my late old man: "He's so stupid he could fuck up a two-car parade"

    I watched Beckett yesterday, and you know the scene when O 'Toole says " Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest"?
    I thought it would be fortuitous if someone heard that applied to the meddlesome Dave, and the same thing happened to him as did to Beckett.
    Alright...not murder him...but rendering him non-baseball viable would suffice.

    Beckett was a great man; plus he's a saint.

    Scarecrow isn't in that airspace. Dumb as a stump.

    in general, Yamamoto was long expected to meet with teams after the winter meetings.

    Nowhere else to post this .... so I'll put it here.



    Time travel is tempting. If I could. I think I'd like to see Drysdale pitch as much as Koufax or Newcombe.
