    • The New York Yankees have added another bounce-back candidate to their starting rotation, acquiring Jameson Taillon from the Pittsburgh Pirates for four minor-league prospects, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan and multiple reports. Pittsburgh will receive pitchers Miguel Yajure and Roansy Contreras, infielder Maikol Escotto and outfielder Canaan Smith in the trade, sources tell Passan. Taillon, 29, was the No. 2 overall draft pick in 2010 and was a 14-game winner for the Pirates in 2018. But the hard-throwing right-hander appeared in just seven games in 2019 and missed all of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow.

    • The Mets are said to be focusing more on Trevor Bauer in recent days. With that coming out, the local media has been blasting the dude and pushing for the club to pass on him. The Dodgers interest is said to be only on a short term deal, but they’re staying in it. In the meantime do yourself a favor and stay the fuck away from the album Bauer dropped over the weekend cause it’s hot garbage.
    • Assumptions are that J.T. Realmuto and the Phillies are closing in on a deal.
    • Masahiro Tanaka and the Blue Jays are in talks over what is expected to be a 1 year deal.
    • The Giants are said to be interested in Jackie Bradley Jr. This makes a lot of sense since Zaidi reportedly tried to pry JBJ out of Boston multiple times while tenure with the Dodgers.
    • The Giants also are interested in pulling Eddie Rosario off the scrap heap.

    No universal DH or Expanded Playoffs this season. MLB says MLBPA turned them down when the owners refused to add playoff bonuses.

    I think Turner is still in play, but I think you can take Turner_ + _____ off the table.

    The Mets supposedly have made a significant offer to Trevor Bauer according to Boob Nightengale. It’s believed to be under Cole’s AAV, which Boob first reported it was the highest AAV to date and seems to have since retracted. The Dodgers have been said to still be kicking around on a short term deal, but Bauer may not be interested in that.

    DH can still be in play for 2022 after the CBA negotiations

    plus from what Colorado has said the dodgers were working with the assumption that there would be no DH

    There was a rumor early on that the Dodgers were only interested in Turner as a DH option just due to where his legs are at. If there is no DH it could really force the team to give him multiple days off a week which may not work with what he may want financially.

    Been reading a lot of reports this offseason and everyone seems to think the same thing about Rios, he showed he could handle the 3B position, but he is nowhere close to what you want out there everyday. The round assumption too is he probably isn't what you want on a first division team as your DH either. I've felt he has done nothing but impress, it just seems that maybe the Dodgers don't think that way or they're just really worried about being too lefty dominant. Right now the infield is probably all lefties with Muncy, Lux, Rios and Seager, plus Taylor rotating in and around the diamond. They have the spot for Turner, they just don't likely feel he is going to be out there enough to be worth what he will cost.

    Another thing that has come out is the Dodgers are said to be once again planning on giving Lux 2B out the gate.
