    Wanted to make everyone feel better so I took a look at Bovada to check the current World Series odds...

    Dodgers are second favorite behind the Astros.

    Honestly I haven't followed him closely recently to know much about him, but based on his stats... really good reliever 7-8 years ago with 120 saves over 3 seasons and phenomenal ERA. Then something happened and he lost the primary closer job, but still picked up a handful of saves over the next few seasons with pretty good ERA numbers. I'm assuming he was hurt last year. Now 35, does he have anything left?

    Only possible explanation is that there's a belief that Roberts will be fired.

    Dodger coaching staff has a pretty good record of bringing relievers back from the dead.

    Dave Roberts said his plan is to have JD Martinez in the #Dodgers lineup every day as the DH "versus right, versus left."

    makes the peralta signing even more curious

    Stephen Strasburg had a setback after a recent bullpen session and is not in spring training, according to Dave Martinez. He's back in D.C. and there is no timetable on him getting here. Continues to be complications following TOS surgery in the summer of 2021.

    I mean he didn't sign him. It was obvious the second he was signed that that was going to be his role

    #Dodgers Mookie Betts said his trip to Driveline was because “my employed told me to” and that trip resulted in them telling him to add more strength so he came in stronger this year, weighing about 8 more pounds than he did last season.

    Every fear that going to an arbitration hearing against Corbin Burnes could harm his relationship with the Brewers was founded. “There’s no denying that the relationship is definitely hurt from what [transpired],” Burnes said.

    Corbin Burnes said the Brewers made him a two-year offer a day or two before the hearing that was “pretty poor.” That, he said, was the only mention so far of any sort of multi-year deal.

    more from burnes…
    • “Just as far as the whole thing, on our perspective and our end of it, it was more that we were just kind of disappointed with how it went,” said Burnes, who is represented by CAA Sports. “The Brewers never really made a real attempt to try to come to a deal to avoid a hearing, at least from our perspective. From our end, they just never really made that solid attempt to try to avoid a hearing. And even up until days before, there were some phone calls back and forth and basically it just came out that we were going to end up going to hearing. That’s how it ended.”

    Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw will not be pitching for Team USA
    in the World Baseball Classic. He's disappointed he won't be able
    to go, but didn't get into any specifics.

    Miguel Vargas said he was offered the chance to play for Cuba in the WBC. He declined to focus on his rookie year but said he wants to play for Cuba in the future. His father, Lázaro Vargas, starred on the Cuban national team. This is the first time defectors can play for Cuba.
