    Outfielder Avisail Garcia is being designated for assignment by the Miami Marlins, sources tell ESPN. Garcia is in the third year of a four-year, $53 million contract. The Marlins will eat nearly $24 million on the deal.

    so if the tiny market marlins are willing to eat $24M, you’d have to think money isn’t delaying guggenheim’s decision on taylor — who is owed only slightly more than garcia:

    • 2024: approx $7.5M
    • 2025: $15M
    • 2026: $4M buyout

    Haha 4.3%. Marcano is to gambling what Taylor is to hitting.

    You should have heard my friend on the phone with me when it all happened.
    He had a few names for him, no doubt.
    They escape me as well.

    Apologize if this has been discussed before, but Stephen Nelson is morphing into pathetic homer.

    Thought he was really good a year ago when he first did Dodger telecasts and he does an excellent job of play by play. But apparently as he's become more comfortable he's turning into one of the Midwest homer types. "Get down ball" and encouraging "our players" to get a hit is the antithesis of what we've come to expect from Dodger announcers.

    And now Orel is encouraging it. When he rejoined Nelson in Pittsburgh he complimented Nelson on rooting for the team. Obviously we were spoiled by professionals like Vin, Jerry, Ross, Big D, Rick and Charlie.

    Somewhere Vin is throwing up in his mouth listening to this shit.

    Read Orel's book when I was a kid - professed his Christian faith throughout.

    Now he's reading promos for LGBTQIA+ night.

    Disappointed but not shocked. His name is Orel, afterall.

    "Just because you're a Christian, doesn't mean you're a wimp".
    -------------Orel, in his heyday, completing his record that will never be broken

    This playoff format is ridiculous. If the season ended today, both San Diego at .500 and the Gnats with a losing record would get wildcard berths.

    It's my greatest fear that somehow we'll be matched up against SF in the playoffs and lose to complete the trifecta of underdog NL West teams to upset us in the postseason in back to back to back years.
