    Honestly, I'm not surprised to see Buehler and Kersh on the list and Bauer not. I know he's the reigning CY winner, but I don't think many are expecting him to repeat that kind of season. Hopefully we're all wrong. Like I posted before, I read one analysis that projected the Dodgers win total to improve by 0.5 wins based on this signing.

    Flaherty on the list does surprise me. He's basically a career .500 pitcher with only one season of ERA < 3.00. Maybe it's the Arenado effect? But I'd have rather expected Fried or maybe even Snell in his place.

    Yeah, nice deal. It also includes incentives for 2022. Up to $3M more based on his number of starts. And another $1M if he wins the Cy Young, or $600k for 2-3rd in Cy Young voting.

    True, you can't blame him...but it's getting to grow a bit tiresome with the stubborn, unrealistic stance he is displaying. He has always struck me as an intelligent, critical thinker, but ,( assuming the FO has made an offer to him for less years), he is coming off as really unreasonable, imo.
    There were plenty of guys who appeared to have a lot more left in tank than he does, who took less...or went to another team.
    If that's what his lofty criteria and priorities are irl then he's made his bed, and I guess he'll have to sleep in it.
    I love the guy, but as the Onion Knight in "Game of Thrones" said, " nothing fucks you harder than time".

    Dodgers make official their signing of Trevor Bauer and DFA Sborz. Ok, I missed him the other night in my rundown of our 40-man and he WAS expendable.

    Trevor Bauer on choosing #Dodgers: "The locale didn't really play much of a factor. It's all about the organization, the talent level that's here, the organizational structure, the systems that are in place, the people that are here."

    I am surprised CK is on that list. I do think his Cy Young days are over. Not that DraftKings means a whole lot to him, but if I were Bauer, I would be pissed I'm not on that list.

    I have very little knowledge of Flaugherty.

    On one hand, these guys are just trying to negotiate the best deal, as any of us would, just with more zeros at the end.

    That said, this is more money than anybody can ever dream of spending in their life. It's an ego thing. They like going to the meetings and getting their cocks sucked.

    You do realize that last year CK posted an ERA and WHIP well below his career averages, right? And his K's per 9 improved on his previous two years. The main thing that screwed him was starting the season on the DL, and yet he still finished 9th in voting. Now if you're saying that he can't make it through a whole season anymore without missing any time, I can see that, but otherwise I expect his numbers to keep him in the running.

    Molly Knight is starving for attention and won't let it go....I am just glad that ugly bitch has a mask on in her profile picture.

    I just can't imagine going through life purposely looking to get offended by minuscule things.

    She's the worst kind of person on social media nowadays.
