    Once we get a bullpen, it's over for everyone (please get a bullpen :pray:)

    It's this kind of thinking that terrifies me that the front office may feel we're good for the postseason as currently constructed. I just hope they're smarter than that.

    I take it the U Darvish era didn't move you.

    There's only a couple of people I'd like to kick in the nuts until they're dead. Nightingale is one of them. I'd like to see the light go out of his eyes while I kick him to death, and then piss on his face as his children watch. Other than that Jesus-filled moment, I'm filled with bliss and understanding at the joy of my faith and my love for the Dodgers.

    Did I mention the pissing on his face part?

    Good. When his elbow pops in July, I'll laugh my ass off.

    A team who has actually won it all willing to go above and beyond to win.
    Even after being screwed on Morrow and Darvish.

    Cubs get Kimbrel for 3 years/43 M

    Glad we got Pollock for $55M and Kelly for $25M

    Trash F.O. when it comes to FAs

    Yeah....the FO screwed the pooch on this. Then again, Kimbrel may just suck for 3 years.

    The frustrating thing is that all he cost was money. No prospects. Pairing Kimbrel with another elite lefty like Hand, Smith or Vasquez would have been perfect.

    Apparently the Dodgers were one of the main pursuers for Kimbrel. He was only interested in closing though, so he was not willing to sign with the club. God fucking dammit

    I hope he suffers a career ending injury.
    No F.O. pays a reliever based on which inning he throws or how many saves he accumulates.
    All he cares about is counting stats to get into the HoF.
    That's his choice that he earned the right to make, but screw him.
    Just another reliever that didn't want to play here.

    Or Aids...

    Of note, I noticed part of the X on coreys face is removed. Assume as he heats up it will go away bit by bit then?

    Good riddance, if you ask me.

    There's a lot to not like about Kimbrel in this whole situation, demands to be given a specific role on the team is just icing on the cake. It's his prerogative to demand that, but it's not a positive attitude to bring into the clubhouse. I didn't want him before and now I'm even more glad we didn't sign him.

    Well...I guess we can go with the top flight guys we've got already.
    No sweat.
    It's a lock with the likes of Kelly, Alexander, Floro, etc.
