    Yea they got a Wigger and a washed up Jap

    Good Moves in my opinion. SDG putting the heat on the Todgers.

    They need to get some bullpen help

    Your daughter may be able to see a world series in Shitco Park this year.

    If Clevinger was healthy I might have never watched another team.

    She bailed California like everyone else and is learning how to bake in the high altitude of Colorado. Apparently that’s an issue.

    Padres definitely getting serious about competing NOW, and want to capitalize immediately on both Tatis' ascendance and the limited window of having guys like Hosmer, Myers, and Machado effective.

    The Dodgers won't be able to coast to another title this year. They will have a fight on their hands. So it's basically a 2-team race in that division. Looks like the Central is going to be a giant bowl of mediocrity again, and the Braves probably have a fairly clear path to win the East.

    Dodgers are mostly standing pat, and are going for cheap reclamation projects like Cory Knebel (which isn't a bad idea, btw). They've fished Turner, Taylor, and Muncy out of the trash heap over the past 7 seasons, so they seem pretty good at that -- or pretty lucky.

    It appears we are about to give Mulva Lindor and Carassco for some garbage. We must be on the verge of bankruptcy or something.

    At least Dolan warned you to enjoy him while you could, cause you know, its all Lindors fault for being so good.

    And yeah, that is a rough return if Lindor signs an extension with the Mets.

    With the exception of the Padres the entire offseason has been very troubling.

    Even the Yankees are acting like Tampa Bay. That should get your attention. There are obv big problems.

    I hope this isn’t another asterisk summer

    Who would have thought anytime in the last, I dunno, 30 years that we'd be calling the Padres and Mets the smart teams right now. Buying during a bear market. Might as well.

    I'm guessing Druff and other Dodger fans are wishing someone in the AL will step up here and buy. I know some have to be trying. Toronto and Anaheim seem to be publicly trying. Everyone waiting for Realmuto and Bauer to sign, but no team is going over the top to ensure they get one of them. The new normal.

    I spent years correctly mocking the Dodgers “success” in that vacuous division. (Insert Bauer to Rockies lulz) Padres vs Dodgers could be like Red Sox vs Yankees. That would be must see baseball. There are lots of rivalries aside from Sawks Yankees, of course, but the hate was special. Tatis & Machado are gonna piss off the self entitled Dodgers players and fans. We hope.

    The LA Mexican gang members could accept the mantle of fan violence from Southie, Charlestown and the Bronx. The chants would be Spanish but I have close caption

    Rosario and Giminez are not garbage at all. I'm disappointed to see them leave - but yeah, Indians got robbed.

      BCR: Missed this. You’re correct, not garbage, just not typical of a serous haul with a star. We waited too long for that package and couldn’t afford it anyway.

    I feel sorry for you, Tickle.

    Mets just can't catch a break.

    It’s like the browns...

    Same ol sorry ass browns, same ol sorry ass Mets...

    Not even Stevie boy can wipe the shit stains off...very curious how something like this doesn’t come up in the vetting process...seems like while this might have not been widely known it was at least sorta known to where some sort of due diligence would have picked it up...

    Wonder if Stevie vets his stocks like this or just relies on good ol insider information to make his billions..

    Too many homers

    baseballs being deadened. No more juiced baseballs. Don't know the difference will travel 3 to 5 feet less.

    This change will hurt the Dodgers, who are a power-offense team.

    Ugh.

    Justin Turner BACK

    2 years, $34m, club option for 3rd year

    He wanted to come back, the Dodgers wanted him back, but there was a stalemate regarding contract length. Turner wanted 4 years, Dodgers only wanted to give him 2. He's 36 years old, born in late November 1984, just a month before another LA star -- Lebron James. Turner was the oldest player on the 2020 Dodgers team, taking that title after Rich Hill left.

    He was huge in the 2020 World Series, and has had a lot of great postseason moments with the team, as well as a .302 average in his 7 seasons with the Dodgers. However, each year his injury issues seem to become more numerous, and he's been on a slow decline overall.

    The Dodgers really wanted him back, though, because of both his team leadership skills and the fact that he's one of the favorites of fans. Turner, who was unceremoniously released and unfairly criticized by the Mets in December 2013, effectively ending his career, was given a chance by the Dodgers, and blew up at that point. Even though he came to the Dodgers at 29, his career is basically defined by the time he spent with them, making both sides really want him to return and end his career in LA.

    I'm glad the Dodgers held firm on the 2-year thing, and I'm glad he's back.

    Interestingly, they also picked up a backup for him -- minor leaguer Sheldon Neuse -- in a mostly-ignored trade yesterday with Oakland. Neuse is projected to be a third baseman (though he has positional versatility, as Turner once did), and hit very well at AAA in 2019. It is likely now that the Dodgers are hoping Neuse can eventually take over for Turner -- and perhaps immediately take over if Turner gets injured. The timing of the trade for Neuse -- which involved shipping away Adam Kolarek and promising prospect Cody Thomas -- was in preparation for signing Turner.

    What this ownership group is doing to my beloved Red Sox is a travesty. You are the Boston Red Sox with a history of supposed history of racism and you trade away the best young black player of the last 20 years in the name of reseting the luxury tax..... when you getting $1 a month from every house in New a England via your NESN deal. Now to follow up you start by trading away Benitendi for a ham sandwich. Your rotation is garbage.

    Seriously fuck this team. If I still owned my season tickets Iíd give them up.
