    *** OFFICIAL *** MLB 2019 Thread

    I dont follow baseball as much as others here. I guess Im just not a humongous sports fan. I have alot of other shit to concentrate on in life; is what it is- sue me. I mainly follow the teams from my home state - the Brewers (and of course Packers). Ive always been a home team fan. I dont know what it is, but many other people here are like that as well. Maybe its because i grew up mere minutes from the stadium, or maybe its the close-knit fans, and maybe its that for the most part the fans as well as the players maintain fairly good ethics compaired to other teams. I mostly never saw myself as rooting for another team other than my home state.

    That being said, in the past few years, i honestly saw myself as a highly potential Dodgers fan; i dont know why, but i just was. There was/is at least one thing however that is keeping me from that

    Machado

    To put it simply, the guy is a fucking douchebag. Guy is a fucking loser and certainly no role-model at any level. I have a strong feeling he his time is ending with the Dodgers. They can do better than this douchnugget.

    He's not coming back.

    Seager will take over SS again.

    Machado's lack of hustle, dirty play, and repeated choking in big spots is not going to push the Dodgers to make room for him in some way.

    Had he lit the world on fire upon coming to LA, I could have seen them finding a way to squeeze him in. But it's not happening now.

    Kershaw revealed last night that he has 3 days to opt out of his contract.

    “It was confirmed to me. So I think I have three days in the opt-out window.

    “Yeah, I think I said 10 [days] a month or so ago, but found out it’s three. And so it will be an eventful three days for me, and I’ll try to figure it out.
    “I’ll try to figure it out.” Not exactly bleeding Dodger Blue.

    Don’t worry Druff. No team is mortgaging their future for Kershaw. Except the Dodgers.

    Wouldn’t it be hilarious if the Dodgers extended his deal? This is somewhat likely.

    I heard them mention it a during the game. Pretty ridiculous to make a decision like that by Wednesday.

    Two questions:

    -When will the Dodgers raise his World Series runner up banner, and is Druff going solo or will he bring his son?


    I'm sorry Druff but I would still rather be a Jays fan with distant memories of the back to back World Series championships. We also have some young kids coming up and may be able to make a run at the Yankees/Sawks in about 3 yrs.

    Funny looking at Dodgers Payroll for 2019.

    Kershaw - possibly 32 mill
    Jansen - 18 mill
    Turner - 18 mill - Okay he's worth it
    Rich Hill - 18 mill - 39 years old
    Kemp - 21.5 mill

    Luckily you have Seager, Bellinger, Buehler, Muncy still around for cheap.

    I doubt Freese is taking his 6 million dollar option. He hasn't made that much over his career needs to grab a bigger contract while he can.

    Actually, provided the Dodgers don't shit the bed with dumb free agent signings in the offseason, they will have a ton of payroll flexibility in 2020.

    Kemp and Hill's contracts will expire.

    That will leave only Jansen, Turner, and maybe Kershaw with sizable contracts in 2020.

    The only significant player hitting free agency that year will be Puig.

    The team's biggest problem, though, is that they aren't gong to get much help from the minors. The prospects they have are unexciting at the moment. No Seager, Bellinger, Buehler, or even Urias quality players there at the moment. And you can't expect a Chris Taylor (2017) or Max Muncy (2018) to show up every year to bail you out when you have holes in your team.

    This front office also hasn't been particularly good with either medium/big free agent signings or midseason pickups. They've oddly succeeded with their seemingly inconsequential moves -- the aforementioned Taylor and Muncy pickups, the Kemp "salary dump" trade which ended up saving their first half of 2018, and even David Freese at the August deadline. Some of that had to be luck, but I'll give them credit for those pickups. Justin Turner was another inconsequential pickup in 2014 (the Mets released him and put out the word that he doesn't hustle and is bad in the clubhouse), but that was by the previous regime.

    I will also give them credit for not making completely idiotic moves which fuck the team for many years -- such as Albert Pujols or Ryan Howard. They've done some dumb things, but at least those dumb things run out after a few years.

    The Dodgers front office has been better at not making moves than making moves, strangely enough.

    Dave Roberts is about to get a long term contract. Not kidding. He's been a good puppet for the front office, and takes all the blame when they direct him to do ill-advised things. He's about to get rewarded.

    Dodgers will win the NL West again in 2019.

    this is going to be interesting.

    definitely not out of the question of a deal extension from LA, regardless of kershaw's decline.

    i'm sure the yanks and a couple of others would give him 3yr 100 mil.......so the dodgers are going to have to tack on 1 or 2 years @ 20 or 30mil per imo.

    regardless of it's smart or not, he's getting more money. unless he thinks he sucks and doesn't want to give up 60m for the next 2 and declines to opt out
