Yup, He and Dwight Howard can share the honors as the least most hated LA athlete!
They must see something they really like with MadBum, cause his peripherals are not great.
Dodgers and Angels both reportedly did not reach $300M in their offers for Cole
Nomar Mazara traded to the White Sox. This makes a Joc Pederson trade less likely for them.
Yankees have to be runaway favorites to win the WS. At least we can laugh at them when Cole declines in the backend of his contract while we’ve won 0 WS and they’ve won two.
Let’s not forget, the Yankees needed this as much as anyone. The Dodgers still have a better pitching staff than the Yankees at this moment, and we are most likely going to add another arm.
Disagree big time.
Can't wait to hear how we offered 8/299 or something like that.
I gotta go with the Yankees on this one
Weren't they shopping Happ?
I was just putting it as it stands now. Hell, I'm not even sure Urias is gonna finally be a full time starter
Not to mention a way better bullpen than us.
Bumgarner would be hated so much more.
I think at this point, the Dodgers would have to sign Rendon and pull a rabbit out of their ass to land some other star pitcher to get me excited about this upcoming season. I think our pitching staff will be better than expected with May and Urias, but they are going to need another horse behind Buehler and Bumgarner ain't it.
Rendon is not expected to sign at the winter meetings.
Donaldson is considered likely to sign this week.
Reminder, Betts and Lindor are said not to be on the market. The Indians owner has said a hard no for trading Lindor and the Sox are going to move other pieces to keep Betts in Boston.
The Dodgers offseason outlook got pretty dim, pretty quickly. The Yankees getting Cole has made them the overwhelming favorites to win the WS. Had he gone to the Angels, it would have been one of those "meh, whatever" scenario's as the Angels would still not have even been AL West favorites. Dodgers now HAVE to add to the offense and hope their young starters can take big steps forward. Not a great situation to be in.
With all due respect, the Dodger's off-season always looked dim. They're too pragmatic.
Did any of us really expect to have a chance at Cole up until a few hours ago, like honestly? I always thought Rendon was always the most realistic one of the big 3 to attain. Now let's see how serious they are about getting better, because clearly they've but that kind of money on the table for someone, Rendon is worthy of it too.
Tai chi chuan.
I said I'm gonna find it hard to do a touchdown dance over the Halos' problems if they keep stepping on LAD's plans. Obviously, you can do whatever you like
Glad to have come up short for Cole. Punk ass.
That said, LAD was @ the table and came up short..again. Win the services or stay home. Just another L.
