Discussion in 'Los Angeles DODGERS' started by irish, Dec 6, 2014.
I think one thing is clear from recent tweets and reports. Dodgers wont get lester!
True, but we also didn't lose two of our best hitters last year either....that's assuming we deal Kemp.
it looks like Bradford is the lead man on Lester
you almost wonder if teams feed him :bs: just to fuck with him and make him look like a tool
that's true too, but last year Kemp was a question mark. the big commitment and his health/performance tied our hands there.
and of course the market for SS isn't all that great this year, so they're looking to trade there too + they don't wanna block Seager.
free agency isn't always the answer..remember all the excitement when they told us that they'd be retooling the farm? sometimes you bring those guys up and give'em a shot. those become your big league acquisitions. hopefully one day soon the Dodgers will be able to do a lot of that and successfully.
been watching the coverage..heard the idea of a Derek Holland/Beltre headlined TEX package for a Kemp/Ethier headlined LAD package..can't say i don't like it.
i'm assuming the Rangers would want at least one young arm in return..Dodgers would probably give up Chris Anderson and show Zach Lee the door as well. Lee is basically a throw away at this point..5 million spent on this guy. Lol but the Rangers need young starting arms. Dodgers would probably like to get their top young reliever. might be a match.

The hope within SF organization that they have legit shot to sign Lester has grown over last 24 hours. A week ago they felt like a longshot.

The more I look at the numbers for which Lester wants and the more I don't want him. 5 years at $30 per year?!
Hamels is starting to look better and better.
I think he wants 6/150, so 25 mil per
Yeah, like I said I think years 1-2 would be fantastic but the latter years have heavy risk
And I'm starting to have that sinking feeling that the Dodgers interest was just an agent trying to drive up price...
He says Cubs and Giants are the finalists and then adds "a late bid might change this" just so he can't be wrong. Pathetic. Mystery team lol
Mystery team will prevail, folks.
clash of clans deathmatch has more votes than trade kemp and trade for hamels... combined
This is abso-FUCKING-lutely the scenario. I've been saying this for a while now, but not so succinctly as Gebbeth has done here.
Ok, I missed that. When and where did he say that?
can't wait to get home and watch mlb network...
and watch nothing happen...
kinda looks that way
but you never know
i remember similar talk about greinke
we were all but out
and then poof!
then again, greinke is a weird dude who marches to his own beat :greinke:
Haha, I was wondering why the number was coming out so high. $25M is still a lot.
If I was the Dodgers I'd offer 6 years at $153MM with a guaranteed 7th year based on performance in the previous year or two.
Heyman said it during this morning's coverage..said that Greinke told him that he'd be watching Lester and Scherzer..that he's " no Kershaw ", but he's on those other guy's levels
To be fair I very nearly voted 'trade Kemp' which would have tied the vote here, but I rationalized that a Kemp trade would likely be weeks away.
