    Good for Fernando. Deserved, but...

    If Gil Hodges had to wait until he made it to the hall of fame, and Garvey + Hershiser (among other Dodger greats) don't have their numbers retired, then I would consider this just "LatinX community" pandering by the Dodgers.

    You could take care of those not in the HOF with a Dodger Hall of Fame or ring of honor. Retired numbers should be restricted to HOFers. The decision to retire Gilliam's was an emotional one probably done in haste.

    I say this as a huge Fernando fan. Dude was a warrior and one of the most important figures in Dodger history.

    As little regard as I have for the Lakers these days, they restrict retired numbers to HOFers.

    can’t wait for the gender neutral/homofuck/lesbo section of the stadium to be built so they can retire a random number for billie jean king
    probably 7 since it looks like an upside down L

    lol
    wins a ring with us but would rather be remembered in perpetuity as a loser
    must have been inspired by bruce, er, kaitlyn jenner wanting to be known as a sniveling, weak-minded, broken-down-by-the-kardashian-bkitches, woke, pussy, cross dressing, drag queen, renee richards 2.0, (finally) tranny idiot as opposed to an american hero and olympian

    Aint that the truth! I had to shut it off halfway through. Basically, at the point that he answered "Do you know what question I get asked the most" with something other than, "When will you hire a real manager?"

    Dodgers sign Luke Williams ( Phillies ?) to a MiL contract. Plays every position except P & C.
    Now that's utility extraordinaire... but probably has a below the new Mendoza line BA of .100.
    Third place in the NLW a lock!

    who knows what thor has left
    but it’s sure nice when guys want to be here

    “It was kinda a no brainer to me [to sign with the Dodgers]. I mean to me this has been my dream to play for the Dodgers since I first stepped foot onto this field in 2015. Even as the opposition being able to step foot this field and feel the energy from the crowd and the fans. It’s awesome I can’t wait to be on the field and wear this jersey in front of you guys.”

    lots of thing roberts has no idea about.

    Bill Plunkett@billplunkettocr
    #Dodgers Dave Roberts was asked at FanFest yesterday if he has any idea who his CF will be this year: "I don't. I think your guys’ guess right now is as good as mine." Well, that's never good.

    I created a form, to make it easier for you all to report the daily transactions:


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Today, the Dodgers signed _______________ to a Minor League Contract.

    He is expected to play: (check all that apply)
    __ infield
    __ outfield
    __ pitcher
    __ Davey fluffer

    Previous teams that gave up on him:
    ___________
    ___________
    ___________
    ___________
    ___________
    ___________

    __ too many to list (check if applicable)

    Dodgers were intrigued by him due to: (check all that apply)
    __ OPS over .400
    __ ERA under 8.00
    __ Age over 35 (years of valuable minor league experience!)
    __ Last name works well when Roberts adds -sy at the end

    Any other information that will prove to be utterly useless ______________
    _________________________________________________________
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Hope that helps!

    Seriously though, I don't really understand the ramifications of all these minor league signings. Are there roster limits? If so, will some of these signings block the advancement/development of prospects in the lower levels? Are the contracts guaranteed or can they be cut at any time? Are there salary caps?

    I guess I just don't understand where they're going to put all these guys.
