    Fraudman better sign everyone, I mean it. Dodgers should be like 100 mil under the luxury tax after they decline Fat fuck Lynn's option and all of the other dead weight.

    We'll probably miss out on Ohtani because Friedman tries to go short term at a high AAV, like 4 years 250M. He'll end up saying "we presented what we thought was a very competitive offer" and that we wanted to maintain "payroll flexibility" and he'll end up signing something like 9 years 600M lol. Basically the same AAV just way more years for Ohtani.

    Book it.

    It doesn't matter who they get. They always have the players statistically they need, at least in recent history
    They are like the Tin Woodsman...but they are lacking heart.
    Their inflexibility of approach when it means the most, proven time and time again, will result in the same end game it always does.
    Oz, or AZ, or someone like them, will always beat them.
    Paper tigers.

    I don't want Ohtani. Or Freddie or Mookie for that matter.

    I want Pedro, Beltre, Konerko, Piazza, Alvarez, and Seager back.

    You didn't mention the bonus he gets for not being the worst fielding third baseman in MLB next season.

    So Dusty is making excuses now ...

    https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/...weeters-for-retirement-tired-of-the-scrutiny/

    "We had a lot of success here, Ernie and Charles, and then the last couple of months here weren't very pleasant, because we weren't 10 games ahead," Baker said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "You spoil people. They think you're supposed to win this every year running away and it's not like that."

    Poor you, John Baker. Are we supposed to open a vein because you didn't get another ring?

    Fuck off .... Seriously.

    I'm probably in the minority (no pun), but I really don't want Ohtani. There's no guarantee he'll ever return to the pitcher he was, and the price he'll command is way too much for a DH. Again, just my .02 cents

    Concur.

    Enough with buying high. Try actually developing some talent.... You know ... Like LA did from the fifties onwards ...
