    That'd seem to be correct because we did doom and gloom 2-3 years ago and they answered by re-signing Turner and Jansen. Then we rehashed doom and gloom last offseason and they answered by dealing for Machado during the season and attempting to deal for Harper as well.

    Point being, so long as they keep spending, being aggressive with moves and reaching the WS, we'll probably live long enough to do doom and gloom a few more times. It'll suck to high hell if they don't sign Harper, especially after keeping Kersh aboard for his 30MM+ per, but I don't foresee fans slitting their wrists. Not in the LA market, at least. Personally, I'll be less interested during the season, but myself and those that feel similar will ultimately check in for World Series III.

    The best spot in Fresno is the exact geographic center of town bc a move in any direction is considered leaving. *

    Bye bye Goldy.

    Said it before, say it again, probably don't have to do anything to win the West with relative ease.

    LAD is in that 90's Braves groove.
    They've become the Evander Holyfield of baseball. Can't beat Lewis or Bowe, but they're in the big dance all the damn time so they'll eventually get one

    Spending 31 million a year on perennial choker Kershaw but using the excuse they don't have the money to spend for Harper, that does not sit well.

    Imagine that, Kershaw is a/the primary reason we lose two WS and the reason we can't sign Harper.

    It's a fuckin shame, really. But he had help this time because he didn't re-sign himself

    Definitely, both. He just looks like a guy that's gonna be rejuvenated by being a Cardinal.
    And watch..he'll power them to a World Series win.
    The Cards will have shed Pujols ( who of course won a World Series there and still didn't get the Kershaw treatment/love from his team) and made it back to the mountain top before LAD. Smh

    • Eovaldi signing with the Red Sox.
    • Kikuchi expected to make a decision soon after after the winter meetings.
    • Reds area said to be the strongest pursuer of Dallas Keuchel at this time.
    Pitching market is starting to get figured out. If more guys keep picking “not the Yankees or Phillies” it could raise the price on the Indians pitchers, which yeah not great.

    Could this also open up possibilities for us to trade some our SP's to these that miss out on the FA's?

    I'm not as good as CWG but the priority isn't a FA pitcher at all. Sure they'll look at pen help but imo it won't be a wow signing. I like the Indian rumors but the focus is on catching as it should be. Get us JT part duex!!!
