    Also, David Price pitching in the NL at that cost per year sounds like a good deal.

    Harold Reynolds pointing out that this is big because it's two black players.

    RACIST.

    I know Honey is not the Pitching coach but he is still in the Org, so I won't be surprised to see him working with Price to help him "work out some kinks" to be more effective. I also think Mark Price will be a great Pitching coach this year.

    That is an amazing trade given that May/Lux/Ruiz/Gray/Downs were not included

    Probably just coincidence, but the fact they are both black on the milky Dodgers, does make a difference. A good difference.

    So Maeda to Twins and Joc to Angels were just salary dumps? Did the Twins give up anything?

    I think we did well here. After thinking about it. Joc is a free agent after this season so makes sense. Joc is going to mash 40 homers this season for sure with more opportunities as a DH when not playing in the field. It will help his payday next offseason. Champ will be happy. His bro plays with his hero.

    maeda to twins was so twins would send a prospect to Red Sox. So, it was basically maeda and Verdugo for Betts and Price

    and then, Joc for that infielder is separate

    Twins gave up Brusdar Graterol, who was sent to Boston. Technically a 3-way deal: BOS, LA, MIN

    The Angels deal was separate, and probably more of the salary dump.

    I do like the idea of having Taylor, Enrique, Pollock, and DJ peters fighting for the LF spot. Not to mention, Finding a corner outfielder who is bat first shouldn’t be toooo difficult to find in July

    I think it's good for both Joc and the Angels. Joc had a real chance to prove himself with a pretty good offensive team, and the Angels add yet another bag in a DH league.

    Dodgers get some salary room to re-sign Betts for a longer term stay.

    I just realized that Pujols is gone after 2021.......this is an audition for Joc to fill his DH roll.

    Yeah, if an abundance of Black athletes are fighting to get into baseball. Then it's good.

    But that isn't happening, and it that's been the case for three decades, more and more. At Compton HS, and Garfield, and LB Poly, and <insert Black/Brown neighborhood school in SoCal>, 80% of the kids trying out for baseball are Latinos, while the Black v Latin demographics are about 50/50.

    That's why decrying baseball as milky white like fucknut Harold Reynolds and his posse profess is not only factually wrong, it's disingenuous as hell.

    Naturally I was out to dinner when everything went down and my wife took my car with the XM radio so I had to drive back from Boulder in the snow while updating my twitter. Loving Price at $15M per and the return for Betts is insane. While Price may not be what he was, his upside is still higher than Maeda's and I said a couple of weeks ago, Verdugo for Betts straight up would be an easy yes. The face that our farm system is intact and that we added an intriguing young guy as well was a nice touch.

    Can’t wait for Joc to magically hit lefties and mash against Kershaw and Price
