    Stras is probably better suited for the NY market and stress level. Cole could do his Machado thing..grab $250M+ and go on vacation in SD. Not sure which Cole anybody gets w/o Strom at the controls.

    But as you mentioned, neither will really be of much interest to LAD. LAD will chase more washed names..probably Hamels or Arrieta. And the fucked up part is both of those guys will join and perform better than Kersh in the post, but will have to slot in behind him because he's homegrown

    I was on the get Madbum bandwagon at the deadline. Still am, but I have to acknowledge he's not the same pitcher he once was. That said, if anyone could get him back on track it would be Honeycutt. But like @Fall Winslow said, anyone we get would be slotted behind Kershaw because of the undue reverence they give him.

    And BTW, if we lose to Washington Friedman should lose his job. I don't care how good a job he's done building/maintaining the farm or keeping the team under the cap. He has one job, and that's to build us a ws winner. I realize the postseason is a crapshoot, but where exactly did he improve the team from last year. And his arrogance in trying to also do the GM job himself instead of hiring someone may have cost the team dearly. Fuck him.

    If Friedman has the keys to the vault and just won't open it, fire him. But if Guggs is handcuffing him, then I can't get behind firing him.

    Besides, he'd just go home to Houston and join that FO and really rape the Dodgers. Keep that MF where we can see him

    I don't care who wins between the Braves and Cardinals. I hate them both equally. Doesn't really matter though since we won't be playing them.

    agreed
    staying under the cap was a mandate (no homo) from mgmt
    but if the failure to improve the team was on him, then off with his head

    i hate the cardinals because of all the "most knowledgeable fans in baseball" bullshit
    i hate the braves because they think they're enforcers on baseball code and etiquette
    but to be fair, i pretty much hate every other team (not named dodgers) for some reason or another

    From what we know..what Kasten said about attendance, and him being prez and the mouthpiece for ownership, I'm thinking it's on Guggs. We do know that several of the owners were reportedly tired of the luxury tax. Shit sucks, but it seems they don't care. They tried to fool everybody into thinking they did care because of Magic's presence and what he means to winning in Los Angeles, but time reveals all.

    Passing on Harper was it for me. I don't give a damn what he wanted $ wise. Add him if he gives you a talent that can handle strong pitching and increase the chances of winning big, and what does he do this season? 1.194 OPS VS Strasburg and really just raked against all of the Nats' starters. Sign him to whatever, win the damn WS, and then trade him if you have to. Red Sox are looking to do the same with JD Martinez this offseason. You have a hell of a farm..somebody would take Bryce Harper and that money, especially if combined with another spec or two. But to do that you have to give a fuck..and we know they don't lend any fucks

    St. Louis is so obnoxious that I can't help but root for just about anyone that plays them.

    I want to see Acuna Jr. pimp a big HR vs them and cause their fanbase to lose their minds and yell racial slurs at him in true St. Louis fashion.

    all these NL teams aren't very good we should burn down Dodger Stadium if we don't win the NL pennant

    What do you guys think of pinch running for Donaldson when he was already on 2B with 0 outs? Seems kinda dumb

    I don't like it. He's way too good defensively to take out of the game.

    I could see it making sense with two outs, when you absolutely need the next hit to tie the game. But with the zero outs, you have a couple of opportunities to get that run in without having to take Donaldson out
