    racist but i agree
    cost prohibitive for essentially a dh
    would rather re-sign jd and go after starting pitching… you know, something we actually need
    no guarantees on what you’ll get from walker and may, gonsolin is mid, julio’s gone, kersh should probably retire, and the kids are still kids (no pedo)
    get snell, montgomery via free agency
    then trade for someone like glasnow

    100% but I also think the way this team works they'll bid everything to get him like a circus would bid for an elite oddity.
    I mean, i admire dudes talent but just don't trust him holding up long term...who knows where he'll be when he starts throwing again?
    Jd, starting pitching, fire davey

    Are the Justin Turner rumors true ? He turned down 13 million from Rsox...so maybe we'll sign him and have another clanky 3b to back up Max?
    And really whatever one thinks of JD, is anyone gonna top his numbers ?
    Aside from the inescapable reality of nothing they do or who they get will make a difference during the Time of the Albatross in charge, it's nice to have a guy you really admire and respect on the team.
    Because fuck Mookie.
    He's gotten so played out already,, no matter what he does in the first 162.

    "The Dodgers are lining up to be a landing spot for Japanese star left-handed pitcher Shōta Imanaga", per @Mark Feinsand at MLB.com.
    Shōta posted a 2.66 ERA with an impressive 29.5 K% for the Yokohama DeNA BayStars of the NPB. He'd be a really nice pickup and come a lot cheaper than Yamamoto.

    Be nice to add another LH to the rotation. Very RH heavy.

    The #Dodgers announce they have declined their club options for Daniel Hudson, Joe Kelly, Alex Reyes and Lance Lynn

    Blake Treinen is the only pitcher who had his option for next year picked up by the team.

    One of my favorite lunatics.

    My heart wishes (in a manly way) that they could have kept Hudson. Dude has been through so much in his career, but keeps on battling.

    Looks lke they're just cleaning up a lot of pitchers on the roster who contributed nothing but all got paid. Treinen with his potential, is worth a flyer for uno millione, as written above.
    Should be some bp next year. And starting staff.
    As a very long time fan, it really sucks that every signing, no matter how potentially great, now has it's excitement diluted by the well earned " what difference is it going to make in the end" with Albatross annually maintaining the post season failure ?

    giants, padres, brewers, cubs, even the angels all changing managers
    yet we’ll keep a guy the players tune out
    AF and co will keep him because he’s a yes man, won’t question authority, and is still just happy (and ever so fortunate) to even have a job
    great for him bad for dodger fans

    thanks for the memories JD and good luck w the douchebacks who would be very smart to grab him
    looks like its Ohtani or nothing as the Cubs pull off a "coup" and nab Counsell from the Brewers
    sure a bunch of teams are pining to get their hands on davey

    • MLB announced the candidates for the 2023 NL Manager of the Year and it did not include LA Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.
