    If this $48m was just going to be dead money, I'd understand the criticism, but Price should at least be able to be worth $25m-$30m over the 3 years, and maybe a lot more if he rejuvenates his career in LA.

    You've criticized the Dodgers for not going for it, and just standing pat because they knew they could keep winning the NL West.

    This year they've finally made a real move with an eye towards winning the Series. I still think they need some starting pitching for the playoffs, but maybe that will come later.
    The Dodgers improved

    The Dodger’s Betts rental has my full attention. Betts is Trout. That is going for broke. But what else? Pitching?

    This is 2nd only to Yankees
    RF Betts
    1B Muncy
    3B Turner
    CF Bellinger
    LF Pollock
    SS Seager
    C Smith
    2B Lux

    be serious
    serviceable regular season rotation
    Buehler (max respect)
    Kershaw
    Price

    May (I like him)
    Urias (I hold the upper hand here - correct since day 1)

    Awful
    Kelly
    Treinen
    Jansen

    The Red Sox looked at NYC and folded. They have multiple fresh rings. They will take some abuse for appearing financially focused but they had ZERO shot against Yankees. Just can’t say it publicly.

    Price is an aging mental defective. You will find out soon enough. Countdown to the Fortnight gamer stories.

    I would say thats 2a maybe, with 2b being:
    RF Kepler
    SS Polanco
    LF Rosario
    DH Cruz
    3B Donaldson
    1B Sano
    C Garver
    2B Arraez
    CF Buxton

    Basically, IMO, Yanks, Dodgers, Twins are the only 3 teams where you could randomly set the batting order and they would be fine. Houston right behind, but they arent batting Reddick or the catcher higher than 8-9.

    I would say the Dodgers are least likely for regression from an unjuiced ball though, compared to the Twins and Yankees.

    Beetsis a good player but he's elite when he knows what's coming.

    I chalk that trade up to the Red Sox not wanting to pay him in the future as a recent MVP winner.

    His stats the last 2 seasons are 100% bogus. That's not the player the Dodgers are getting.

    weird rays and pads trade.

    pagan for margot, driscoll


    don't know why the rays would give up an arm like that. many bullpens don't have more than 1/2 that can get peeps out.


    i guess margot can have a career year in the next 1-3 years, but it looks like the pads won this. margot right now is a shitty hitter with a poor eye


    i would have lol'd if this was presented to me from the padres

    MLB considering major changes to post season including adding four more teams, adding byes, and a wrinkle where team can pick their opponents. At first glance this sounds like AIDS

    most of the time these bets come down to the last couple weeks of the season. i don't see enough value in the under imo.

    i'm pretty bullish on the dodgers and certain players having huge and bounce back seasons. nobody is talking about him but urias could easily be a beast of a SP.

    Not a bad bet, because it's hard to win 101 games, even if you're a really good team.

    However, beware of the fact that the Dodgers division sucks this year, and this group of guys has been very good at crushing bad teams over the past few years.

    I do understand how this is probably a good bet, though. For example, let's say they lose Bellinger or Buehler to injury for awhile, that will definitely take away from their expected win total. They are not all that deep anymore at either pitching or hitting, so injuries could really hurt them. Well, I guess they'll be deeper if they don't end up trading Joc, and that one is questionable right now.

    this is one of my main reasons for wanting to make the bet...162 games is a whole lotta season...injuries, nagging or otherwise, are gonna pop up...is the peddle gonna be all the way down the whole season or can they cruise to 95-98 wins, win the division, get home field? don't get me wrong don't think it's a slam dunk by any means, but willing to give it a gamble...

    I entered my "large" $150 wager and DK is still trying to figure out if they want that big, big action...WTF!?!?

    I thought this was The Onion using satire to mock the NBA. It’s ESPN.

    They add to the post season or that other nonsense, I’m done. Never look back.

    You follow the Yankees last year? The injuries were non stop. At any one time half the starting line up was getting surgery or such.

    An easy 100+ games. In the AL East no less

    Beastly deep organization.

    Not saying the Dodgers are that deep but I’m not in the mood to tie up my funds this year like I usually do. I still think it’s a proper bet.

    (Oops, I have a real early under 94.5 that is gonna lose)

    I’m gonna look forward to the Dodgers offense. I’m not gonna lie. Dodgers totals lines will be very very very interesting. Middling pitching and sick offense. Price + offense could be a good spot

    Let me just suggest we see a preflop 12 total early in the season - and post it here for posteritydodgers.

    Gut, PFA was big on the Twins last year . They were an autobet. You wanna talk offense? They were amazing. Twins overs were silly. I know Daly was with me. He was “Minny Minny Minny”. I’m very loyal to them for last summer.

    Geez, it was under 97.5 Dodgers

    It was a Betonline pre Christmas special. Like those give-always you get in NJ

    Still looks good actually. I don’t think the Dodgers improve their pitching. They never do

    Those hope-a-trons are looking for a miracle from someone like Urias or Kelly or who knows what.

    Kelly sucks and won't contribute much, barring as you said, a miracle.

    Urias is a different story. He's actually looked good as of late. Dodgers have underutilized him for whatever reason, but they're finally ready to hand him the ball regularly in 2020.

    New playoffs format discussed for 2022: https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-conside...tseason-format

    Interestingly, this is somewhat similar to the NBA format I proposed on PFA a few months ago, including byes for the best teams.

    The new proposed MLB format:

    The team with the best record in both the American and National League would receive a first-round bye, automatically advancing to the Division Series. The other two division winners would host all three games in a best-of-three Wild Card round, as would the Wild Card team with the next-best record.

    Three other Wild Card teams would also advance to the best-of-three round, though none would host a game.

    The division winner with the second-best record in the league would then get to decide which of the bottom three Wild Card teams it wants to play in the opening round -- a decision that would be aired on live television on the final Sunday night of the season, just hours after the regular season concludes.
    LOL @ the live announcement of which team they want to play. That part sounds dumb. That sounds like they're publicly humiliating the worst of the wildcard teams.

    The above sounds confusing, but they're saying that four (!!) wildcard teams would exist in each league. WTF!!!

    That's a horrible idea. You'd make the playoffs if you finished just barely over .500, and it would open a serious possibility each year of sub-.500 teams making the playoffs!

    This is not good, especially because MLB games have such variance, and the worst team can easily beat the best team in a short series. (It's different than the NBA, where the much better team almost always prevails.)

    DKNJ...

    I asked if it was specific to my account or if i'd be able to place a bigger bet as the season got closer and they said that the traders have that info on lockdown...

    I have no fucking clue on this one...id wager that im a net loser...I chopped my season long player props on the NFL, lost the raiders over and at best might win a couple of units in my NBA season longs...so it's not like im some savant that has been crushing them...

    all my season long bets are in the hundreds of dollar range so it's not like this bet was suddenly way bigger than anything I had fired before...

    honestly never thought at the hundreds of dollar level a legal book would ever cut you off...

  19. #119
    so this off season the Dodgers rid themselves of major leaguers Ryu, Maeda and minor leaguer Wong....


    coincidence or virus inspired conspiracy?


    regardless, they are taking a different slant of things
    (long before there was a PFA i had my Grenade & Crossbones avatar at DD)
