    Boom

    @JeffPassan
    Third baseman Justin Turner’s deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers is for two years and more than $30 million, sources tell ESPN.

    Now it's 34 million base with up to 50 million in incentives. That's about 6 million more per season than his projected on field value.

    It's all lining up like I said:

    Turner takes a 2 year deal...
    Arenado opts out...
    Universal DH implemented.

    Murderer's row adds another Manson! :D :D

    Just putting together a lineup because we're all doing the same thing.

    RF Betts
    SS Seager
    3B Turner
    CF Bellinger
    C Smith
    1B Muncy
    LF Pollock
    2B Lux

    That's disgusting.

    Here's a thought, if Belli gets zapped of some power due to the shoulder, they could always flip he and Max

    Alright, I honestly did not expect our FO to just blow away the tax like this, but pretty awesome to win it all and then see your ownership open up the vault to try and run it back. It’s not easy to repeat, but they’ve got the pieces in place to do it. Tons of money coming off the books now the next two off seasons so we probably will slide under the tax again and some intriguing talent on the way. Exciting time to be a fan of this team!

    If this was 2003-2017, I'd be stoked.

    Are you disenchanted with the team or the sport? Because if it's with just the team it's time to get back on board. If it's the sport, well that's a different story. For example, I just can't get back into the NBA after being a lifelong fan. I think they've lost me for good.

    Multi year and paid handsomely. Good for the GOAT and good business for LAD

    Now if they can just find an option for LF that'll actually contribute in the fall and ditch Pollock. Wouldn't mind Jackie Bradley Jr.'s +glove and +baserunning

    Man, if Lux can take the next step this year... could you imagine this offense!?!

    I hope he's working his ass off this winter.

    I'm thinking Muncy will return to his form of the previous two years with good health.

    MLB deadened the ball so some power will be lost by everyone. Unlikely he will lose some because that was his front shoulder he dislocated

    Check his numbers for 2020. Pretty close to what he did in 2017. Really hope he’s figured it out and has a big final year with us. I doubt we see him come back if Lux finally arrives and Seager is re-signed.

    Dodgers Pitchers and Catchers report tomorrow!

    • Josh Sborz was traded to the Rangers in exchange for RHP Jhan Zambrano. Zambrano just turned 19 and had a solid debut in the DSL in 2019.
    • The Dodgers are expected to make the Justin Turner deal official once they can 60-Day one of their injured pitchers.
