    Good for Rendon. Dodgers probably tried the same deferred $ route that the Nats did with Rendon. Same deferred $ route that they just tried with Cole.

    As of yet, has any Boras guy agreed to deferred money? As I said a day or so ago..you show up to the table, you do what's necessary to win the services. Overpaying is part of the game.

    I'm a very reasonable man. I try to see things from all perspectives. This is the first time that I've been upset. An irrational feeling of betrayal.

    I really did think that the Dodgers were going to sign one if Rendon or call. After the dialogue change that went from quiet in the past to talking about changes and allocated funds for this year and to walk away empty it feels bad.

    If they just kept quiet I'd still be talking about Friedman having a checkers chess plan. Now I feel like we tried and lost again. Just like it's been on the field for years. Close but not close enough.

    Any of you dudes have tickets within shouting distance of Walters? I'll fly in and pay for a ticket if you let me sit next to you for the game until I get kicked out for shouting at him too much.

    Until Friedman is desperate he wont shell out the huge contract. more of good during the season because of depth but shitty post seasons because we lack the elite talent that shines under the bright lights.

    Guggs sitting in their office feeling fine. Don't think for one second that they're disappointed. They know they're going to win games and that people are gonna show up to the stadium, anyway. What other major sporting event is happening in LA during the summer? Nothing. They have that time of year monopolized, and that's where they win. Bobbleheads, bkitches..come and gettem.

    It is the Stan Kroenke approach. I watched it for years here in Denver. He owned(he still does, really) the Nuggets, Rapids, Mammoth and Avs. One team would get an infiltration of money every couple of years when the team attendance would dwindle and the cycle would move club to club every few years. He would get an org good enough to get fans excited, but never enough to get over the hump, alas boosting attendance in the process for at least 2-3 years. This FO/ownership is still riding the wave of a WS contender that fell into their laps when nobodies became somebodies(Morrow, Turner, Muncy, Ryu, Taylor, Barnes) and carried their limp dicks through most of the postseason. They didn't get that superhero this year and the charade was over. These motherfucking pieces of shit don't care about winning, they just care about their bottom line.

    Fucking GuGGs is making me feel like a fool for being a Dodger fan for 51 years, and it didn't take them more than 5. They are ripping out my heart and forcing me to compromise who I am as a fan, and that pisses me off. So, Here's an emphatic message to all parties involved:

    FUCK YOU!!!!!

    While I'd rather sign Rendon rather than trade Lux + for Lindor i think people are overlooking one point. There IS a prospect cost in signing Rendon. They would lose a comp draft pick. It's not Lux or May but it's an overlooked variable in most fans reasoning.

    Rendon ISN'T just cash.

    I'm not surprised that a Boras client got overpaid and for a very very long term. While I'm a little upset at this moment he didn't sign with us at least we won't have to go through the Anals to get to the World series before losing. Donaldson would be a fine consolation prize.

    I think our front office is great, to preface.

    But this is embarrassing, unacceptable, and a failure. Fuck all of it.

    They have done it all right. Their misses are minimal, especially when compared to other teams. Their trades are great. Their lack of trades are great. They have put the team in a position to succeed.

    They NEED to win a wS. Unfortunately they have not done that. They have run into a buzzsaw each year. A team who is hot at the right time. Also, the AL has won the all Star game and thus had home field. Home field is a HUGE advantage for the AL team due to the DH and obviously cheating capabilities.

    Yada yada ada yada win.
