    After the World Series meltdown, many didn’t expect the Dodgers to bring Darvish back. Despite this, the Dodgers have reportedly met with Darvish about a potential reunion. If there was any doubt before, Justin Turner made it clear that the Dodgers’ players want Yu back as well. He was recently a guest on SportsNation and he discussed wanting Darvish back as a Dodger.

    " He’s an unbelievable pitcher. He went out against Arizona in the first round and absolutely dominated them. He pitched against the Cubs and dominated them. He’s a big part of the reason why we got to the World Series. To point him out and say we don’t want him back, we might not have been there if it wasn’t for him. "

    If I may add on to Turner's words there, "..so get rid of this Kemp bum and Yasmani..we didn't need either of them to get to the World Series. Hurry up and make some room for Darvish already. "

    I really want Darvish back tbh. He broke my heart, but so did Kenley, Kershaw, bellinger, turner.... I can get over it. He’s really good and can relieve a lot of concerns about the rotation. Also, he was super good in the division and championship series

    As far as I'm concerned, if the guy has ALS, he gets an unlimited amount of fully acceptable dick moves for the rest of his life.

    I think it’s insane to not want him back when he’d only cost money

    I fully expect Arrieta and Darvish to sign elsewhere(probably Cubs and Nats), then some team will come knocking to take Kemp off our hands just in time to really twist the knife after missing out on those two.

    But can we do it and stay under $197 M?

    I think this only works if Darvish takes a discount, and even then, we might have to move people.

    It just seems like the FO is eyeing next year and not this coming season as the WS target year. Not that they don’t want to get there this year, but they seem to be willing to take that risk of seeing what we can do this year and really push in the next.

    I don't think that is necessarily true, the club is under some BS obligation by MLB to get their salary number below a certain point. I am sure they do not want to waste what could be Kershaw's final year on the club with another NLDS or NLCS finish. They are currently rumored to be talking to Darvish in the 4 year $70M range unless they can move some other pieces around. They really can't do anything until they free up another $10+M it seems from this years books. If they truly were just playing for next year, they probably could have just held onto everyone in the Braves deal and moved Forsythe, Grandal and Ryu instead to have way more money freed up next season.

    They have young outfield pieces galore in Mil so I think it could happen and I hope it does.

    Brewers have a strong farm period
    With the Cubs showing cracks and STL wobbling along, it's definitely time for them make their move

    can't say i disagree
    don't think we've ever been in on arrieta
    and it just seems other teams can make better offers for both

    Astros’ Singleton and Deetz suspended for failing drug tests
    by Bill Baer | NBC Sports — 2 hours ago

    [​IMG]

    MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart reports that Astros first baseman Jonathan Singleton has been suspended 100 games after testing positive for a drug of abuse for a third time. Minor league pitcher Dean Deetz has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for Dehydroclormethyltestosterone.

    Singleton, 26, has had issues with marijuana in the past and opened up about his addiction several years ago. He said, “At this point it’s pretty evident to me that I’m a drug addict. I don’t openly tell everyone that, but it’s pretty apparent to myself.” He added, “I know that I enjoy smoking weed, I enjoy being high and I can’t block that out of my mind that I enjoy that. So I have to work against that.”

    Singleton hasn’t played in the majors since 2015. Last season, after going all the way back to Double-A Corpus Christi, he hit .205/.376/.397 with 18 home runs and 62 RBI in 500 plate appearances.

    Deetz, 24, was selected by the Astros in the 11th round of the 2014 draft. Between Corpus Christi and Triple-A Fresno last season, the right-hander posted a 4.25 ERA with a 97/50 K/BB ratio in 84 2/3 innings of work. He denies knowingly using a PED, per ESPN’s Keith Law.
