    1) I feel bad for the fans
    2) watching the other teams celebrate at our expense is sad and infuriating
    3) having this unfold on national TV every October is embarrassing

    Other than that, oh well.

    Wheeler and Castellanos are solid and in the prime of their careers, I'll say that for them.

    But yeah, those are 3rd and 4th place additions. Dodgers need to come in 1st for once. Betts. Arenado. Cole. Strasburg. Spend on the cream of the crop. The very top guys that are in their prime and available.

    It made no sense to add on the extra year. He had an option that already overpaid him, let him accept it or walk.

    Dave goes with analytics and numbers based matchups the entire year and then in the playoffs just goes with his fucking gut and goes with emotion instead. Just unreal man.
    I think a lot of other managers would’ve done what he did in putting in Kershaw though.

    Here’s a fun one: Kershaw has never given up back to back home runs on consecutive pitches. Only done so in the playoffs

    wtv. Shit sucks but nothing we can do, I’m gonna try my hardest to genuinely not care about what they do this offseason. Keep whoever fire whoever do wtv. It’ll be hard to muster up emotion or care

    the 106 wins were super fun and cool and something I won’t forget but this shit will always hurt

    Hi guys. Been awhile. Kershaw still has no balls. Roberts is still a fucking moron. That computer geek baseball is still for the birds

    Maddon's obviously made some questionable moves in the postseason himself, but he also just galvanizes his teams. We need that shit right now because they have to be dead inside after all this postseason fuckery year after year. They need some authentic charisma from a non-politician type. Either that or just a hard ass. But I really don't expect DR to get fired, TBH, so just spend on the best available players and stop buying depth. We have enough depth already. Throw up in my mouth a little everytime I look at the top of the payroll..it's disgusting

    Ohh and play of the game in my eyes was the fucking lawn gnome wearing one to get on. Big time play! It’s too bad this team can’t sack up and do that more often and too bad he didn’t get rewarded by timely hitting behind him. That’s just good baseball and solid team play.

    Let's be honest, they'll never fire Roberts. At best they'll have a conscious uncoupling or whatever the fuck they did with Donnie baseball. I think they give him another year but they better give Kershaw the Rich Hill treatment next year. No more fucking around with this guy. Open up the vault and sign Cole. We need a solid 1-2 punch along with Buehler moving forward. Fuck it even sign Rendon and get some pitching for the bullpen. Can't believe it's the offseason. 106 wins and 3 whimpering losses. Fuck the Dodgers right now man..

    This franchise is irreparably fucked. Roberts is an idiot, Kershaw contract was inexcusably stupid. Idk what you do from here besides meander through the regular season and hope something goes right. But unfortunately, the yearly script is boring, and it feels more like watching a shitty TV channel than a baseball club. I'm losing interest.

    Dodgers slapped that qualifying offer on Howie and he lost millions because of it

    You know that GS felt good

    Straight to an IHOP and order a Grand Slam type of good

    nah like I think Wheeler has ace break out potential. Yeah it’s potential but even then he’s still real good now. Obviously I’d prefer Cole but yeah Wheeler would be good.

    I’d take Girardi or another younger guy if Roberts does end up going.

    fuck Maddon that ship sailed years ago

    This is karma for them keeping the cockeyed woman beater on the team. They should have traded that scumbag for a box of gum after what he did at the Beverly center. Keeping him on the team showed they were gutless and had no testicular fortitude. You can’t win in the playoffs with a bunch of pussies and woman beaters. Can’t happen. The baseball gods look down on that shit

    It sounds like Cole wants to be in LA, so they better not fuck this up again.

    The Dodgers will offer him a one-year deal. Nothing to see here.

    I don't trust it. Potentially a leverage play to get the Yankees to go above and beyond. Which we all know they will be willing to do

    One more thing that annoys me...friends of other teams who want to give their opinions on why the Dodgers didn't win. "The problem was..."
    Oh, shut up. I watch the team every day. Do you really think you're going to tell me something I don't know already?
    Then I am forced into defending the Dodgers which I don't want to do
