    Freeze ever play 2nd? I think Muncy will get a real shot at 2nd which frightens me a bit I'm not going to lie but his bat and OBP was soooo good last year.

    If MGT didn't give up too much to get Martin that would be a good addition.

    Martin and Barnes basically had the same season last year, only Martin had a bit more power. Both get on a ton, but BA takes a hit.

    Dodgers are going for top flight defense and framing at the catcher position and rolling the dice on one of Martin and Barnes putting together a bounceback season on offense.

    Hill's contract is probably the only one that would go back. There arn't really any other big contracts that could be given up. Kershaw, Jansen, Turner, and Ryu are the only big contracts left. Baily was let go......this is gona be odd. Maybe we got some prospects back....

    This from MLB Trade Rumors:

    The Dodgers have reached an agreement on a trade with the Blue Jays that will bring veteran catcher Russell Martin back to Los Angeles, reports Arash Madani of Sportsnet (via Twitter). Martin will earn $20MM in 2019 — the final season of a five-year, $82MM contract with the Jays. Presumably, Toronto is paying down a hefty portion of that remaining salary as part of the trade.

    Barnes can play 2nd so definitely no Harrison, you win!! :D Heyman says we are still in on Realmuto too wow. By the way he settled his ARB for 5.9 million.

    supposedly two prospects are going in the deal and the Jays are eating a ton of money.

    Wow... Brito is kinda of an expensive pay. Martin's cap hit is 16.4M so the Jays may be sending $14ish M

    Russell Martin?
    Deja fucking Vu.

    He can't hit but he can draw a bunch of walks.

    Rosenthal said that Barnes has been impressive this offseason working with the new coaching staff and they feel he will be closer to the guy he was in 2017.
