    Maybe Friedman and Zaidi are showing that collectively they were much better than they are individually.

    Dodgers have signed AJ Pollock according to Ken Rosenthal.

    Nightengale is reporting the Dodgers are trying to pull off a couple of deals in the coming days, including JT Realmuto

    Passan saying it is in the neighborhood of 5 years at 60M potentially... that on the surface seems like a good deal. Meh, still don't like it.

    Dodger fan Derek Carr wants to fight Kellerman and Stephen A., but he should probably be angling for Kasten and Walter instead.

    5 years? Even if they somehow still sneak out the back door with Harper..5 years for Pollock is ridiculous

    • Nightengale says the Dodgers talks with the Marlins about JT Realmuto are now "intensifying".
    • Bob is also reporting that the deal is guaranteed at 4yrs and about $50M. That 50M mark makes a big difference to the D'Backs. There will be opt-outs and escalators. Heyman saying 55M

    50M+ for Pollock and LAD unhands a draft pick between the 1st round and comp round A
    Guess we'll see who they send off into the wild, blue yonder along with the draft pick Smh

    Bowman reporting that the deal is 4 yrs at 50M... which just fuck this. Sign Harper to play to that age, not the fucking walking DL dude.

    This news is just depressing. 5 years for a guy who can’t stay healthy. If this is the only signing, man....not sure what the whole game plan is for the club.

    This has to be step one in a JT and Kluber move.

    Trash. If the Lakers somehow traded for Mike Conley for some reason, it'd be the equivalent of this mess.
    4+ years to a 31 year old, injury prone Pollock

    It sounds like it is a step 1 (or step 2, as Martin may have been step 1). Joc is probably on his way out now and it sounds like they have picked up negotiations with the Marlins. So Barnes may be out the door as well. Not sure if they will move Verdugo at this point as that would open up another hole in OF.

    I'm gonna be in the minority here, but I like it, using the depth he's only gonna have to play 120 or so games (I talked about this before, but he's not gonna be asked to be the 3rd best player on the team, as he was in AZ) and he just has to fill a role..

    If it's a 4-year deal, as opposed to 5, all the better, hopefully he plays well enough to utilize the opt-outs as well.

    Listening to MLB radio a few minutes and they were saying something similar.

    If he remains healthy and can play like he did at the beginning of last season, then this is fantastic. The thing is he has just never been able to stay healthy, so the frustrations are warranted. I agree with some sentiment out there that we needed a CFer. I liked Bellinger out there, but he definitely misplayed more than a couple of balls that a normal CF'er would have caught. From everything I am hearing, Pollock is an incredibly underrated defensive centerfielder and that is good to hear. Just when a guy like Harper is still out there and knowing there is a decent chance for that dude to put up a higher WAR in one year than Pollock could realistically do over the life of this contract, it really pisses me off.

    IF...and it is a HUGE IF...IF Pollock stays healthy, the OF defense is gonna be one of the best we have seen in a long long time. That is two ++ arms at the corners in Verdugo and Bellinger. I know that Pollock is solid out there, but I am not fully sure of what his arm is like.

    My thoughts a couple weeks ago on Pollock.

    Feel the same way now but I dont think he will be able to reach my threshold

    Heyman now also reporting the Dodgers and Marlins have picked up talks for Realmuto. Sounds like they have gotten realistic in their asking price. We may have some more moves coming quickly.
