    Do some editing and send this in for publication in the LA Times. Or maybe the Houston Chronicle.
    Others should definitely read it.
    This verbalizes what so many Dodger fans probably can't. Or won't.
    Well done, boyo.

    Maybe I will. Definitely not my comfort zone but if my sentiments are close to what others feel, it'd be nice to have our voices heard. That's what I hate about MLB Network, the Astros, etc. They never acknowledge us in this scandal.

    I'm going to speculate on something, and it's just that. I say "IF" it's true that the Asterisks didn't cheat in '18 and '19, the only way that's possible (that they'd suddenly stop) is if MLB found out and warned them to stop, hoping it would stay out of the public arena and fade away quietly.

    Whether this is what happened or not, I agree that Manfred should lose his job. Either way, he's handled it terribly.

    And an added thought... Manfred has got to hate every time Correia opens his mouth, as that's just throwing gas on the fire.

    Our revenge is Mookie (he's not Betts, he's Mookie) and back to back WS championships the next two years to begin a decade of dominance for the Dodgers and the best roster in modern baseball.

    RF: Mookie
    SS: Lindor
    LF: Trout
    3B: Arenado
    CF: Bellinger
    2B: Muncy
    1B: Seager
    C : Smith
    DH: Otani

    Considering he asked everyone in MLB to not talk about it, yeah, he’s not happy.

    Of course, Manfred let Correa off the hook without punishment, so he probably expected him to fall in line more easily. But what do you expect from dumb jocs whose best plan involved banging a fucking trash can.

    Hopefully it’s enough for him to lose his job too. That would be total justice for protecting the Asterisk

    • Justin Turner laying waste to Manfred right now. The gap-toothed piece of shit will be in AZ tomorrow for a second interview, apparently.
    • Mookie Betts posted a pretty cool video thanking Boston and ended it with a nice new beginnings segment in LA.
    • Graterol will be throwing with the team for the first time since the trade. He has been out with a nasty case of the flu.
    • Dustin May is dealing with soreness in his side and he is getting shut down for second. It is not a big deal and seen just as a usual camp ramp up thing.
    • Honeycutt showed up to camp this morning.
    • Turns out that Verdugo had a stress fracture in his back which is what ended his season. It is said to not be something that is expected to be a reoccurring problem. The Red Sox are said to want to slow play his return.
    • The Clevinger injury is only supposed to take him out of action for 6-8 weeks. With him missing camp, I would not be shocked if it is 3 months before we see him back in action.
    • Mike Trout joined the chorus of folks that have spoken ill of the Astros now.
