    Point is he makes very little and has a track record spanning a decade. The East other than the Nats is pretty weak.

    Any other offseason this would fade into the background. The talking heads on the MLB network are so desperate for news they're breaking down minor league signings for whole segments.

    This is a tricky situation......

    What Darvish are we going to get......

    The bend over when it counts tipping excuse of a crap that folds like a lawn chair, or the dominant pitcher when there is nothing on THE line pitches like Cy Young.

    One thing we know almost certainly is the Dodgers won't make the best offer, the Cubs probably won't either when they can get Arrieta on a 4-year deal. The Yankees, like the Dodgers, would have to move a player (Gardner or Ellsbury) to create enough space under $197M.

    The Twins will almost certainly have to go a 7th year to get Darvish.

    Something like 5/125, with massive deferrals is the best I see from the Dodgers.

    Yes, it's tricky...but if we think that CK's back is an automatic 18 wins and he's a CY candidate for sure, as usual, and Wood wins 16-3 again (not happening) written in stone, Mr. Blister's age stays hidden, the Asians repeat the ying/yang, etc., we may be depending on magic beans again.
    Even considering the colossal bed shitting of Darvish in the WS, we still need the horses to get us there...y'know, like the world's best pitcher we've had for the last five go rounds that failed miserably. All the grumblings of " let him go" increasing and being heard and read so often now.
    Maybe we should seriously sign this guy, even given his pitch tipping, evidently top secret to LA coaching, obvious flaws.
    I hated what he did too...lost the 7 th game of the series...but I also hated the docket of heroes who just simply disappeared from the lineup.
    And the barely mentioned ever Choke Jansen. Pt. I and Part II.
    Imo, the real chink in the WS armor.
    Darvish takes the hit, but would be a fine acquisition for the 162 grind.
    Evidently, the post season formula,totally escapes the LAD so far, so
    we keep on praying on rookies each year.
    Buehler? Buehler?
    It's your turn...line up behind Puig, and Joc and Corey and Cody and Julio...the Thin Blue Line is forming again.

    I’ve spent the morning watching highlights of our playoff run for the first time this offseason and man, I guess I’m in a place where doesn’t get me depressed to watch even though we didn’t finish it all. In previous years, watching playoff run highlights sucked but making it to the World Series made it worthwhile to watch. Lots of really fun moments. Fuck, even though Kershaw fucked up game 5 of the World Series, I’d forgotten how great his game 1 was.

    Anyways, I’d like Yu Darvish or Lorenzo Cain. If not Darvish, I wonder how much Lance Lynn would cost cause he’s pretty damn good too.

    Damn, looks like the Giants are gonna acquire McCutchen. A shame because I really like McCutchen but the Giants still suck.

    Mets included
    Mets are probably a year and half away from needing a fire-sale, they really should sell Thor while he still has some team control, he's already showing cracks health-wise



    NYY may have come to their senses weeks back, realized they already had a Cole
    One pumped up spec for Cole ala De Leon to TB for Logi, OK
    Getting into a bidding war and sending multiple specs for Cole, just a waste
    Would only make sense if McCutchen were coming as well, and perhaps not even then

    Feels like LAD should either find a long term solution in LF or just keep moving with what they have
    Already dealing with having Yasmani in a contract year, him knowing that they don't plan on re-signing him
    Their most important position on the field dealing with lame duck status, which is obviously great
    McCutchen coming over in his contract year just adds another everyday guy who knows he won't be around long
    Will be out there playing for himself like Yasmani will be..like Hanley did in his underwhelming final season
    Optimal time to deal for McCutchen was last off-season, when many questioned whether he could still produce

    Wouldn't say Lynn is pretty damn good, but he is solid. Certainly respectable pitchability

    What the Sfkags are doing is like when the Lakers acquired Steve Nash, give it up bums, you’re done

    Oh look at that. The heroes again
    Given the recent Jay Bruce/Mets deal, I imagine perhaps SFG and the Mets were battling, the loser having to trade for McCutchen

    Well, other than the initial uber disappointment couple of weeks when his name occasionally did come up, not a thing.
    And you could make an argument, a valid one to some degree, too, that talking about his momentum changing, traditional Dodger RP post season failure, does not change the results...but any fail from Kershaw or anyone else, is droned to death. And actually used as bb acumen and cleverness to put blame there.

    Kemp McCutchen and Pence is one of the more hilarious imaginable outfields
