    Other thing is that the Brewers now have a very full OF and maybe they don’t want Braun splitting AB’s with Thames at 1B. So instead of keeping him on the bench for 3 years, they’d rather have Kemp on the bench/DFA’d for 2. The rumor is also(it may have been said above) that Braun has said that he’ll only waive his NTC to play for the Dodgers or the Angels. So this may be their only hope of moving him.

    I think the new QO loss is a 3rd and a 5th (or a 2nd and a 4th if you were over the luxury tax threshold the year before). But I might be wrong. Actually, given my history, I probably am wrong.

    So here are the numbers:
    Kemp - 21.5MM for 2018 / 21.5MM for 2019 - AAV 21.5MM
    Braun - 19MM for 2018 / 18MM for 2019 / 16MM for 2020 - AAV 17.6(not counting 4mm buy out for 2021)

    Where is the 1MM more for Braun? It looks like MGT will save about 4MM in this deal. What am i missing???

    Kemp is down 41lbs and the goal by opening day is to be down 50 total. Last off season he lost 15, but didn't have nearly as much to work with. Players generally lose 5-15 pounds during a season, Kemp instead in 2016 found a way to balloon. All reports are that he is very happy to be back in LA, but most people feel that best case scenario for him making the team is a 4th or 5 OF'er.

    - Nightengale is reporting that the Giants are closing in on a deal for Tony Watson, while a few other reporters are saying that more teams are still involved. This is where I start to get uneasy about the Giants. They are starting to get more and more pieces in place to be a more dangerous/annoying team and this market is right up there alley. They can probably snag some solid arms on short contracts off of the allure of playing in that ballpark half the time. I still don't think they are a contender, but they will probably stick around.

    - As I touched on yesterday, word is the D'Backs are getting more and more confident that they may be able to work out a deal for JD Martinez. Looking at a shorter deal with high AAV and lots and lots of deferred payments is the rumor.

    - Chase Utley has re-signed with the Dodgers

    i fucken hate the giants
    while our goal is to win, their's is to do whatever they can to try and fuck us
    we could win the division by 15 games, sweep the postseason, and those ckunts would be boasting about how they took 10-of-15 from us during the regular season
    fucken polesmoking assclowns


    really hoping the red sox get him
    imo arizona could be a lot larger threat than the fkags up north

    Re Utley:

    He keeps on coming back so you gotta wonder if it's just for the $, love of the game or if homeboy secretly regrets choosing UCLA back when the dino's walked The (round) Earth?

    Personally, I'd like to think he's making the universe right.
